    I know this topic has been discussed a lot but I still haven't gotten a straight forward answer. I have an 08 A3 premium (not the s line) so I just have the basic rear bumper. Can I buy (http://acimg.auctivacommerce.com/imgdata/0/2/7/2/4/2/webimg/4223196.jpg) just this piece anywhere and install it to the factory bumper? Or do I have to buy a whole new bumper? I just dislike the way the rear of the car looks and need to do something to it.

    Welcome to the site.

    Please show us the rear of your car, so the advice given is 100% correct.

    You cant fit the new valances used by sport/slines from 09 due to your bumper being different, you can however bolt on the S3 valance due to your upper being identical.

    You have the Sline diffuser. That black price isn't on mine.

    It looks like your bumper is the 2 piece job, so you could fit the s3 one piece lower section, it has the diffuser and lower section as one.
    S3 lower section with diffuser moulded on 8p3 807 521s
    Tow eye cover for above 8p3 807 441b
    I have fitted this to my 2 piece sline rear bumper.
