    If it's 8p2 or higher then you shouldn't need to change the bonnet or wings it's just the bumper :) iv just done a facelift convertion but mine was a 8p 2004 to a 8p3 2012 looks well but was a ball ache for me lol

    That's not correct. If you are going from 8P2 to the latest facelift (8P3) then it is bumper, wings, bonnet and lights etc.

    Yeah got 8p2. Has anyone done this and got a build log? How much you guys think it would cost to swap it all? As I could sell my current front end to recoupe some cost

    think i saw a few posts mention whether you would buy used or new parts and some you could only source from Audi themselves and would run the 2-3,000 pounds mark
