    Hi guys. Lookin for some help. I bought a 2nd hand tfsi tailgate for my sportback, both in ibis white - mainly to get the effect of the spoiler as i think my motor is lacking in looks. Is there a guide as to how to change this on here that anyone is aware of? Also bought an s3 grill but ive read that this may not fit?! Cheers in advance.

    Hi, welcome along

    Can't help too much with the tailgate but as your car is a 2009 model the S3 grill will fit, assuming you got the correct grill?

    I think the grill is correct. Its from an s3 and is the same year as my own. Are you aware of a guide to help me take off the bumper and fit the grill properly? I dont think it will take too long hopefully.

    Cheers J

    Have a look in A3Kent's signature, he's created a very good guide for this.
