    You will have to let me know how he gets on.

    Does anyone have a pic of the backside of the S Line bumper with the cut outs to give an idea of whats there etc?

    I will have a look, but as much as I love you Sarah, I aint taking my bumper off for you!

    I did look at my old bumper though, and it has gubbins in there which I presume is for the washers. I can only assume the s lines will be the same.

    I will take a picture for you later and show you. :)

    Sline fog each (2) 8E0941699C & 8E0941700C
    Fog plugs each (2) 3D0941165A
    Fog repair wires (2) 000979244
    Sline bumper 8P0807105AGRU
    Sline fog surround each (2) 8P4807681F & 8P4807682F


    Full parts list for the conversion (excluding bonnet)
    Hope this helps.

    I am going to do the same, my 2005 sline needs new fogs so I will be looking to sell the whole front end and replace with the above.

    This is what is behind a non washer jet non sline bumper.

    I cant remember what was behind my s line one before I fitted it though :faint:

    Cheers Scottie! Well do I cut or not! Worried it may split the front face! Not bothered about paint chip etc cos it will need painting but worried if it splits... Although I know ABS is pretty tough.

    you dont have to get a new re-inforcement bar, if needs be, you could trim the existing re-inforcement bar - couple of milimetres either side iirc

    have you tried scrap yards? go online and search for breakers and then register yourself on the breaker site and search for parts...

    My S-Line conversion is complete (woohoo) - I see what you meant now Scottie about applying the S-Line badge. I tried Araldite after a bit of modding and it just wasnt stable/secure enough.

    I'll get the S-Line badge and my cupra R splitter attached then take some pics.

    And 'Finally got an A3', keep trying all of the breakers on ebay/wherever you can - thats how I got my bonnet. Took a lot of time pestering people but worked out in the end...good luck
