    Hi guys!

    I´ve been searching everywhere and cant even find a good picture of an A3 8L s-line car.
    I once saw a car that had the same look on the bumpers as S3, but it was without the wider shape they got(S3).

    Was that some modyfied S3 bumpers on that car, or is there any S-line ones that look exactly like S3? Partnumber realy appriciated in that case!:)

    I´m sick of the bad fitting S3 bumpers I have on my A3...:(

    Well, seen a few S-line 8Ls with white clusters etc. ! And the S-line plate on the rear-side of the car.

    I'd argee with 1animal1. S-line was introduced in 2003 with the double grill A3 8P. Was never introduced into the 8L. I do like the look of that A3 Tuffy! Nice colour

    Seen something like that kit before and thought it looked absolutely horrid :puke2:

    But the one in that link looks a "good different" - dunno why, but there's something about it that I like - maybe the lack of chrome at the front?

    Defo a marmite moment!!

    Previous 8P front end conversions I'd seen I hated, as I thought the lines were all wrong / mis-matched - but this one's really starting to grow on me.....

    ....... does anyone know what the front and rear bumpers are / who supplies them?

    I think it helps that the car is a dark colour, but it's given me an idea (that I'd probably like to try in photoshop at least)
