    From memory, I think 5 door part numbers ended in "A" but I cannot be certain :(

    Ebay is also blocked in work so can't see the link!

    The guy has posted his number on the ad - give him a ring to confirm it. It looks like a 3dr though but double check with the seller over the phone or by email as sometimes the pictures people use on ebay arent of the actual item theyre selling.

    Of course its a 3door bumper.

    Look at the tail lights of a 3door and those of a Sportback. As khali said the sportback bumper has a little curve on the top

    Lol, I would have been but managed to get one that had been on 2 mins! How lucky was that! Needs painting and a diffuser so may go for the S3 so like you Smethey1, I'm a happy bunny too.

    Yes I think you can as long as its not a 2009 bumper! OR even the S3 diffuser! Sure the lads will confirm when they've had their tea lol!!! Hope you get fixed up.

    If you enlarge the pics, it does have the park sensor cut outs! Also in the description he has 'Selling part is exactly the same like on the picture' Does this mean the pic isnt of the actual bumper??????? I've got stung in the past with not actual items being in the listing pics! just a thought. Does yours have park sensors???? Going off that one I paid a bit over the odds but hey ho!

    Just worried if you end up buying a bumper that does have the holes and your car doesnt have them. If the one he is selling is identical to the pic on the listing or is the one in the listing it does have park holes.
    Wish i'd seen this earlier! lol

    You 2 girls have confused me. Are you talking about the bumper shown in the picture near the start of the thread?

    It is a 3 door sline rear bumper (not new face lift) and it doesnt have any park assist holes.

    Or am I missing something here. :)

    Ahh I see. Silly me :)

    that looks like a facelift standard bumper (new shape) as it is all one piece. 8p1 and 8p2 bumpers are in 2 parts. That is whole with a gap just to add the diffuser.
