    Hi guys,

    Not long bought myself a 55 reg 2.0tdi sport A3. Already sourced a few new parts, one of which is an s-line front bumper. I have searched the forum and realise i need to buy new fog light grills, however i wanted to know if the foglights themselves can be taken from the standard sport bumper and fitted into the s-line bumper with the new grills?

    Cheers,

    Lee.

    Pretty sure you will need new S3/S-line foglights. PM Aythree he was doing the same conversion so he will 100% know.

    hi, just done that conversion and you will need new fogs. the sport fogs have flat tops, the s line/s3 are round

    100% the fog lights WILL NOT fit. they're not even the same shape. look at pictures and you'll see what i mean

    As said above.... sport and s-line fogs are 1000000000000000000% different.

    I'll be posting a thread for my conversion at some point today with all part numbers, info about sport/s-line shared parts, and other things I noticed when doing mine.
