    Hi guys,

    I need some of your expert advice.

    I'm able to get my hands on a bonnet for the facelift conversion of my 04 3.2 S-line but am unsure whether the bonnet is the correct one or not. The guy I'm buying it from has no idea which year A3 its from.

    I have a few pictures of the bonnet and was hoping some of you would be able to tell me whether the bonnet is the 2005-2008 facelift bonnet I need or whether its from the very latest facelift 09 on...

    Thanks in advance y'all

    I'm pretty sure thats an 05-08 bonnet, the think as line meets the leading edge is much more defined on that one compared to the earlier one.

    Here is my <05 bonnet

    bah, went to edit my post, deleted it thinking i could just repost.

    Anyway...

    I think you win 10blazin - hands down. good spot :applaus:

    I thought it looked odd at the front and suspected it wasnt the bonnet i need but as I havent seen the bonnet I need separated from the car I wasnt 100% sure.

    Cheers guys.

    Yea m8, ive been monitoring ebay for a good month or so. No luck yet. I'm also keeping tabs on local scrappies and parts suppliers in the hope I can get one on the cheap.

    I still need the other parts for the conversion though so if i get the bumper first I'll probably just order the bonnet from Audi. I'd rather avoid paying £200+ for a bonnet if possible though...
