    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to replace my rear bumper. Thanks to a dark car park and concealed pole, I have a fold and a puncture in mine :sadlike:

    Are all A3 bumpers the same? Will an S3 bumper fit? I have a 2003 A3 Quattro 1.8T.

    Any suggestions on where to go to find one in Nero Black, and what I should be paying?

    Many thanks in advance.

    A3 body, yes they are, S3 is slightly wider to line up with the wider rear quarters, but it can be done.

    You're not the only one to have done that. get a pattern bumper from eurocar parts (only need the top half if the bottom is OK) and get it sprayed. Cost me £170 for bumper and painting.
