    i'm trying to find an S3 front bumper (along with a few others) for my 08 a3 and have been offered one but the guy bought a bumper off e-bay for his A8 :think:and this turned up ? (coughs * bullsh1t) but whatever i want one he's got one , but it looks like an s-line one to me i got part number (8p08074378) that doesn't make any sense and he's not 100% sure.
    so question : whats the difference between s-line and S3 ????

    Most obvious is the shape of the grill surrounds

    yeah not an S3 one. Think thats just a standard one.

    S3 the lip is a different colour and fog light area also different. And 3 vertical bar at the bottom
    Have a look at this photo 2008 Audi S3 1984 cc 2.0 T FSI quattro 265 PS

    S-line/Black Edition they only have 2 vertical bars at the bottom2009 AUDI A3 2.0 TDI Black Edition


    Edit: There a thread some where on here that some one did explaining and showing the difference between all the bumpers on the 8P3.
    Have a quick search

    i know it looks better, but what i didn't know was whether it was just different fog light inserts ect or if the chin spoiler was changeable the differences are very subtle and i thought i just ask as i know very little about audi's and modding cars.

    ok it will be then. that bumper is the one you have already. the slines have a difuser in the middle and it bulges out over the fogs.

    Sline

    sport/ normal notice no lip above the fogs

    s3 look round the fogs again surrounds are diffrent and the lip above is diffrent. think the lower splitter is as well

    Thanks for that , yep I worked out the difference between the s-line and the S3 back bumper all by myself ! Lol ( got the part numbers from lingy)
    Just couldn't work out if the front bumper was the same and just had different parts on it , but now I do :)
    Thanks for your help , just gotta find one now .
