    Hi, I currently have an A3 with the ebay fmic on it, thinking about getting an s3 front bumper with the grills removed.
    would it fit relatively easily with the intercooler in place?
    has anybody done this on their A3, if so, pictures would be good :D

    Cheers

    s3 bumpers are diffrent the wider to fit againts the fleard wheel arches it will mount up but wont look very good unles u change the front wings to match. as for the fmic what do u mean by ebay? if u mean after market fmic then it might be a tight fit. it standard should be no problem

    i thought it fitted ok, seen a few a3s on here with the s3 front bumper without the wings too. The intercooler is an aftermarket front mount, i know the standard would be ok, as its nowhere near fowling the front bumper.
    i was wondering if anybody had an fmic with the s3 bumper.
