    That looks awesome!!!

    I want one....

    What material is it made out of...cant read the language. Thin it says GFK (glass-fibre Reinforced) which isnt ideal as it cracks and chips easily but it looks so good.

    Just emailed him asking will it fit a A3 S-Line & postage to UK using an online translator!

    wird einen A3 8P anpassen 2004 modelliert 2.0 TDI? Wie viel für poastage nach dem Vereinigten Königreich?
    Dankt Ihnen

    :D

    That looks the muts nuts. Most after market rear bumpers for the 8P look terrible. They just don't seem to fit the shape of the car, but that S3 style bumper is great.

    Maybe if we orderd more than 1 he would be interested in shipping them? price is good too!

    Saves moving the exhaust too, the Original S3 one has the exhaust in a slighty different place.

    but looking at the photo it looks like it for the early a3 the one with the protection strip, i believe that it might not fit the later models but i could be wrong

    Yes I assume he means that early only. Apart from the 06 on S line, all the 3 doors have the same bumper up to the new 08 shape yeah?
