    Well every1 seems to think an s3 front bumper wont fit an a3

    but i used to have one on mine, all i did was buy s3 guide rails and it fitted absolutely fine.

    I've just bought another one too, so if you hold off a few days ill confirm that the new one fits too, once could be a fluke but twice must mean it just works!

    I used the bumper to wing plastic mountings from my Quattro bumper bit of a faf had to remove some material from s3 bumper but with these in place you bolt the bumper to the wing ensuring good fit etc (pic on my gallery of front o/s corner fits like a3 bumper gaps etc.)
