    On the hunt for a build thread just so I know what's required and how difficult it is to make an a3 look like a brand new one. From bumpers to even the new style door handles. And is it hard to get led drls working as they should.

    Alot of people have done the single grille conversion I think you're referring to. I'm on about the 58 - 11 facelift. 8p3.

    A lot of people have done this. It's expensive but if you take your time you can find some good bargains. Although if you want drl headlamps that is costly. Also you may be able to make a few bob back on your old front end on eBay
