    Are the 8P 1/2/3 rear bumpers all interchangeable on a 3 door A3?

    I've seen a nice 8P3 bumper locally but not sure if it will fit my 8P1.

    Thanks!

    As Ash says, the seller is wrong. It comes off of a 2008/2009 or newer car but is a straight swap on all models from 2003 onwards.
    Maybe he's getting confused with the front bumpers, which are only a direct replacement on 2008/2009 onwards models.

    The honeycomb effect inserts or the valance?

    Honeycomb about £120 depending where you get it and I think the valance are about £80-£100. Check with Dave @ Stoke audi
