    I'm after a S3 bumper myself and already contacted this seller, asked him to confirm whether it has any broken parts and if he could deliver it... but not an quite honest answer received, I wouldn't bid personally coz this bumper has been on eBay fora while, re-listed couple of times and if it was good it would have been sold by now, I guess it's taken off a stolen S3 as he refuses to answer my question...

    Also you must collect the bumper yourself which is pain in the arse, also when you workout the washer covers that is missing, front bumper lip/spoiler along with fogs and grille, it isn't cheap at all...

    It would fit S Line but you need to change the bonnet as well! :(

    So why NOT get yourself a 8P3 bumper and have that nice upgrade :)

    Asked him for part number and he couldn't provide one either! Asked what plate car it came of, no answer! Fair enough, thanks for the heads up bud!

    A full front end conversion? Too expensive at the moment :( what have you got on at the moment?

    Yes in answer to OP, I'm fairly certain that is NOT an S3 bumper, but an S-Line bumper.

    The S3 bumper has different shaped/angled fog lights and less corner "splitter" sticking out, but a different colour centre. It will also always have headlight washers as the S3 has bi-xenons.

    Thanks! He's giving me some more information and has agreed to package it for me if I arranged a courier. May just have a bid and see what happens, as some on there are ridiculously priced at over £200!

    If you're after an S-Line front bumper the bid away! Foglights are easy to get hold of, they are the same as the facelift 8P3 models. Fog Grills from audi. Main big grill, you can get an FK S3 style,

    No worries, I'm on the process of S3 conversion myself and TBH you shouldn't rush... I've bidden on some many GENUINE S3 bumpers on eBay and upon collection it was totally a waste as to what it was described as, so for bumpers and stuff I wouldn't recommend rushing and take your time...

    You always have time to find a right one....

    Well so far I've got my BBS CH alloys with new F1 Asymmetric 2 tyres @ over 1400, GENUINE S3 spoiler @ 180, AP X coilovers again over 700...

    Headlight bought but returned as one of had scratches, front bumper return due to being fake/rep

    Recently bought a rear bumper with diffuser and parking sensor @ 400

    Now need a pair of headlight, front bumper, side skirts, bonnet, wings and grille...

    + other unnoticeable accessories

    But I'm taking my time and have no rush for it...

    Hope it helps :p

    Fair enough haha, I'm not the most patient type in all honesty! I have the rear 8P3 S line bumper waiting to go on, along with the facelift rear lights and want to do it all together with the front as well... sounds like your hunts going well! Be sure to post a thread once you've gotten everything.

    Didn't bid on the bumper, he couldn't even confirm if it's genuine!
