    I own an A3 with the old style front bumper (this one) and im desperate to try and get the S3 bumper put on instead.

    Ive read the website below and it says this 'kit' has all my needs, but i thought to get the s3 front bumper put on an a3 I needed to change my bonnet aswell?

    Anyone shed any light on this conversion thats had the work done?

    Thanks in advance

    Yep, you'll need a new bonnet. There's a really comprehensive post about doing this mod by PregnantnProud (can't remember exact spelling but think that's right!) - he has done this already so take a look at that. I'll try and find link later if you've had no joy.

    ]

    Thats actually not bad a deal, they normally fetch 130-150 on ebay for a full set. They are £300 from Audi so 100% mark up isnt bad by his estimates!
