    Why would you want to put that big ugly 'gob' on the A3?!!

    i like the single grill on the 3dr A3, especially from from the front (not too sure from a 3/4 view) - as seen on those spy pics. any idea roughly how much these parts would cost?

    From a rough calculation it would seem around €500.
    Remember that it only comes primed so you will need to pay a body shop another £200 to spray the bumper, but some of the parts may be the same as you have on the original bumper.
    I will post some pics of the original too if you want?

    Now who would want to ruin their cars? There's a cheaper way also, buy a Daewoo/Toyota.

    see if you think that way in a years time when you get used to the new look, and your car looks outdated. opinions change over time - i remember thinking that the new shape A3 was indistinguishable from the previous incantation - but now, how old does the old shape look? just a thought!

    thanks for the info gizze - wouldn't trust myself to do the job, though - as every shelf i have ever fit has been wonky!!may wait until nearer the time and ask a stealer.
