    Know this has probably been asked before but new member so bear with me. Collect my black 2011 S3 next weekend and was considering fitting an RS3 front bumper on it if it's possible? Seen a couple of S3s for sale with RS3 upgrade when i was looking for mine and love the look i must admit.

    You can fit the grill to the s3 bumper but i think (someone correct me though) the whole bumper is wider than the S3 so requires the wings as well.

    Each wing 700 a pop, a panel beater could widen your wings. But I woudn't be doing that to a 11 plate S3. Stick with just the rs3 grille swap.

    Don't like the sound of that, perhaps just the grill change be better. How much is the RS3 grill? Where's best place to purchase one?

    It does fit and it's marginally bigger by mm, the s3 wings have a different curve on them at the front towards the point. Should you go rs3 wings it's a cost but it all aligns correctly and you can drop slightly wider front wheel on or run serious camber.
