    Not a great start to the week.

    Any ides on the fix?
    Does this come self coloured and is it a descreet part that can be seperated (and ordered) on its own?

    Not hopeful that it can be fixed as it seems to have distorted around the damaged area.
    Thought maybe some heat might bring it back then a rub down and paint?

    Or is it easier to replace?

    Thanks in advance people.

    Mine is also a mess from driving low. Is that part number the same for 8P2 bumper? Also how much are they? Is it really cheaper to buy a new one?

    There isn't a separate part for 06-08 S3's, its part of the bumper.

    After spending time removing, sanding, filling, reshaping/sanding, primer & paint then refit, for me for sake of £57 I'd buy new.

    I've replaced mine recently due to similar damage.
    3 or 4 screws and then a good yank and it comes off easily, 5 minute job.
