    Hi guys.

    Last week someone ran into the back of my S3 at the lights, and them drove off, tosser. Anyway its just come back from the bodyshop and they have made a right mess of the color match so they are doing it again after finding out there is 4 different tints/shades of Sprint Blue.

    Anyway I've notice the black plastic trim that sits on top of the bumper and slides under the boot seal is loose and I suspect they have broken the plastic clips that secure it. Can anyone please put up a S3 SB bumper diagram/breakdown that shows this plastic trim? As I need to know how it fits, and if it clips on to the bumper once its place on the car, or before.

    Has anyone dealt with this trim, how it fits etc? Any advice appreciated!

    Thanks :)

    The part is removable & can be changed for new, it does need bumper of tbh & it does clip into position, done myself.
