    They hads it for 3 days in total, but they can get it done in 2 if they aint busy
    Probably same price, its the size of the car they look at and the amount of curves etc, so most a3's would be £900-£1100

    Yup rear bumper and getting it lowered over the summer, got a new headunit put it, double dinn pioneer one.

    But rear bumper will cost me like £300 in total with the wrap, so thinking what to do first, springs or rear bumper

    Nice one OP. I know I'm resurrecting a pretty old thread, but I thought I'd add my 2 pence.
    OP do you still have the car or sold it on?
    I just got a 06 Audi a3 sportback SE 2.0 tdi last December. Here are my mods so far:

    1. Car came with tow bar. Sourced a rear impact bumper bar for £24 and got the tow bar removed with the bumper bar replacing it. Rear bumper and front bumper had some deep scratches and cracks. Got it resprayed. Got the hole left in the rear bumper from the tow bar filled. All this for £280 plus cost of the crash bar, can't complain.

    2. Already had some JDM stickers (nismo, mugen, wrx etc) so stuck some on the back windows. Also got the quattro front and rear badges

    3. Next plan is to get a remap and delete EGR
