    and you needed all three elements for conversion or just the the lower bumper
    the grey bit in the photo ?

    did you posted your conversion, where i can see ?
    I do not want to waste money on upper rear bumper.

    my s3 rear bumper is in two parts. S-LINE / S3 rear bumper skin and S3 Rear bumper diffuser with valance. In the last pic that is a new facelift s3 rear which is 3 piece. More expensive but does look better. which makes mine the pre s3 rear bumper

    i want to put the same bumper as you.
    do i need the upper bumper or i can buy online the bumper diffuser with valance.

    does the s3 lower bumper with the grey bit fits with my 2004 a3 upper bumper or i have to buy booth parts ?

    You can make the lower s3 bit fit your 2004 bumper yes but two clips need modifying its not difficult But i reccomend getting the rear bumper required for the s3 lower bumper as it looks much better. Best place to look is ebay. Remember the rear bumper the S-line model a3 used is the same bumper that was used on the s3 only the bottom diffuser valance part was redesigned
