    Been looking for an S Line front bumper upgrade (single grill) but couldnt find any with the front washer jet holes so decided on the S3 instead. So just bought an S3 bumper on Ebay to change on my A3. But its just the bumper skin and number plate support so I am after the Grill (optic Black I think), S3 fogs and the surrounds. Does anyone know how much the surrounds would be from Audi as I have seen some on Ebay Germany but they finish tomorrow!!! (Always the way lol) These items dont seem to come up too often on Ebay so any help where I can pick up what I need would be appreciated.

    Also....mine is a 2004 S Line, am I able to replace the rear diffuser for the S Line/S3 one or is it whole new S3 rear bumper too!!!! The lower part does come off and ive seen one on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150416620900&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    Suppose last bits the side skirts....will keep me busy and out of mischief for a while lol :laugh:

    All the fog surrounds cost £55 iirc. Show me a pic of your rear and I'll tell you if its the right bumper or not. The S3 rear is the same as an 06> S-Line bumper.

    Thats the older style bumper, you'll need an 06> S-Line rear bumper for the 06> S3 or 09> S3 diffuser to fit.

    To fit the S3 lower valance, you are going to need an 06> S-Line rear bumper Sarah, like I just said, to cut on costs, don't do it :laugh:

    Don't forget you are going to have to modify your crash bar Sarah to get the s3 front bumper to fit !!

    Yeh thanks, I know I have to cut it down a bit!
    Its the rear thats baffling me now. Was hoping not to have to get a whole new rear too but if thats the only way! I thought it'd be like my A6 was and the lower bit pop off, I've started to take mine off so I know it does come away from the rest of the bumper. I will keep looking for a rear too.
    Cheers

    you can pick up a rear sline bumper very cheap on fleabay.

    I have just got mine for £40. Shame the s3 bottom bit is so expensive from audi :

    It is a good excuse to get rid of the orrible bump strips on the rear bumper. That is why I am doing mine,

    the parking sensors are in the bumper, not the lower valance so no holes needed.

    Another question!!!!

    Are the washer jets and tow eye cover etc the same on the S3 bumper as my '54 S Line?? (split Grill) Also will the jet washer springs etc fit too?
    I had a BMW 530d and changed its SE bumpers to M Sport but when I removed it all the inside parts etc were completely different for the 2 bumpers so wondering if its the same for the A3!!!
