    Are there any members on here who have fitted the Audi A3 Hofele Design front bumper to their 8P1?

    Interested to see what it looks like?

    Does anyone have any links to some high quality pictures because i want to see how the bonnet meets the bumper and grille.

    Thanks :icon_thumright:

    It doesn't

    There is a plastic part of the bumper that separates and fills the gap between the bonnet and grill

    Doesn't look right.

    You might be better off searching for a second hand bonnet and s-line front bumper than buy an aftermarket job. what year is your A3?

    My car is an 8P1 05 plate, it's the double grille version.

    I have looked into sourcing the bumper - £160.

    Bonnet - used £100, brand new £180.

    S line grille - no idea, none on ebay.

    Fog lights and surrounds - no idea, none on ebay.

    I would be patient and wait for a S-line conversion or source a Votex lip for the twin grill bumper

    IMO no after market bumper suits the a3 bar standard, s-line or S3

    I'll probably wait, i want it to look right so i'll go OEM then.

    Do you know anyone that supplys the votex kit just out of interest?

    Thanks

    I'll have a search, i'd much prefer the newer S-line look though.
