    Hi, I have recently bought myself a 2003 a3 fsi and just like most with this car would love to change the front end to the single grill.
    I live quite far up the country north scotland, is there anyone around me that may any of the parts i would need for sale?

    S3/S Line Bumper,
    Bonnet,
    Grill etc?

    Would be no bother to travel a couple of hrs or so.

    Any help/advise would be great!

    TBH, unless your living around Manchester were most are stolen oops, broken/dismantled I'd suggest you bite the bullet & buy bonnet & bumper from dealer. Very few people will send a bonnet & they are very rare commanding almost as much as a new one. 2nd hand bumpers are often damaged and will require some extra work/cost. The other parts i'd look on German ebay, lots will post to uk if you ask.

    Thanks Khufu,

    Yup thought that would be the route i would have to take? Was reading on a mkiv golf forum lad there reckoned all the parts to do the conversion were about £350 from audi?What you think sounded quite cheap to me?

    Doubt it mate! The bumper/grille costs about that, then you will need the fog lights at around £120 and the bonnet at £170

    However if you go to a dealer do not be afraid to ask for a discount, theres always at least 10% in it, maybe 15% on this sort of value, dont forget dealers make money on parts aswell as cars! ;)
