    Hi Guys

    I had a bit of an accident today, I reversed into a ballard in a car park :keule: and the back bumper is knackard, Its a 2001 facelift S3 does anybody have any idea how much a back bumper would cost fitted?

    Also anyone know the best source of where to get one.

    Thanks

    VW/Audi breakers in worksop might have 1 or theres a place in nottingham that break audis, motors in motion is one of them i belive. Google it and give them a call. If that fails try Ebay...

    I did exactly the same thing recently....!
    it cost something like £200 for the rear bumper, minus the grey strip which I recycled from the old one.
    Including spraying up and fitting at the bodyshop, it was something like £400

    Thanks a lot, I have been offered one for £30 the wrong colour so If it was £200 for the spray hopefully it will cost about £230.

    Suppose im lucky it wasn't one of the rear panels and just the bumper

    £200 to spray a bumper is quite steep i thinks...can you not get it cheaper than that??

    Wigston hey Rick, S3's in Leicester, getting quite common now hey ;)

    alright, it might not have been 200....
    Buying second hand bumpers off ebay is a bit of a mess about isnt it?

    Same can be said for your S3 Rick!
