    To this?

    Would it be a straight swap, I know i'd have to purchase new grill inserts etc but is there anything else needed to swap it?

    Or is about the same job as 09 bumpers replacing the wings, lights etc?

    It's possible, but probably actually cheaper & easier to get the parts for a facelift conversion.

    Dealer quote for the S3 bumper cover was £320, + the grill and other parts came in just over £900 without painting, & that's with discount!

    I've seen 2nd hand complete front end facelift conversions go for £800 upwards for everything needed.

    Yeah its mad as sometimes people are paying more for used than they cost at dealers.

    But, as advised, if going from 1 pic to other, apart from grills & fog wiring, its straight swap bumper, bonnet is compatible already as its a single grill fitted currently.

    Thanks guys, when you say the facelift conversion what does that look like? Im tempted to go for the s3 bumper but ive heard they are hard to come buy and expensive but im glad the bonet wings etc dont need to be changed

    09 models are 'facelift' which would mean new bumper, new wings, new bonnet, lights etc... As mentioned previously all these parts 2nd hand can still be cheaper than buying an S3 bumper. Madness.

    800! Surely not, must be hardcore bargain hunters.
