    not that i'm aware of, I want to do it to my sportback but it won't fit. I think it should fit the 3 door model though.

    i think i read somewhere that the tailpipes on the S3 are slightly further to the right than the standard models so it requires a slight bit of work with the dremel to make it fit.

    Anyone have tried fitting the S3 rear bumper or valence to the A3 sportsback? Will it fit?

    nope it won't fit the sportback model, hopefully the S3 sportbacks will fit when the parts become available although the rear bumper has supposedly been re-designed.

    Thanks for the info guys. I am currently on the SLine bumper and I am thinking of trying my luck on the S3 rear valence. Wish me luck.
