    Will do pal! I'm on the lookout for an s3 front bumper eventually, do you (or anyone else reading this) if the fogs are the same in the sport bumper from the same year?? :think:

    Mega busy day today, put new grill on and put lamin-x on fogs.

    Started by taking out the three screws under each wheel arch,
    [​IMG]
    Next i took the top grill screws out from the top of the grill,
    [​IMG]
    Following on was the screws that hold the bumper to the belly pan, whoever owned this car before me loved scraping over things!! :)
    [​IMG]
    Next was the screw and popper which hold the wing to the bumper, i used a small allen key to push out the stud ;) (cheers Alfiejts)
    [​IMG]
    And from below :) looking up
    [​IMG]
    After this was the one last bolt that holds the bumper to the car structure,
    [​IMG]
    Now i slowly prized the bumper until it unclipped at each side
    [​IMG]
    One quick pull and the bumper came forward,
    [​IMG]
    Pulled out the inserts ;) and unscrewed the fogs,
    [​IMG]
    Cleaned the lenses with cold water and a cotton cloth
    [​IMG]
    I found that if you breath hard on the lense, this gives you a nice misted surface, then applied the film slowly, smoothing with my thumb :)
    [​IMG]
    Once on and happy with, i heated with hair dryer and left to cool, one done so repeated for second
    [​IMG]
    Next i unclipped the badge from the old grill and placed it on the new one
    [​IMG]
    Smashing ;)
    [​IMG]
    After unclipping a million clips ;) i took out the old grill and dismantled the number plate off it :)
    [​IMG]
    Time to mount the newbie ;)
    [​IMG]
    Clipped straight in, sorted! Mounted fogs and inserts and time to put the bumper back on!
    [​IMG]
    Finished and washed ;) happy now!
