    Hi guys,

    where is the best place to get an S3 rear bumper from? Its for a 3dr and they seem to be very scarce...... i would even settle for a 2007 style s-line rear bumper but cant find any of them about either....

    It would appear that the A3 bumpers are the same as the S3. The only difference is the valence/diffuser. Just in case you thought it was specific to the S3.

    Just had a quick look myself and nothing on eBay, just sportback ones as you probably already know!

    Done a bit more looking on google on this and I think I'm not 100% right. I think they are the same as far as the section the diffuser fits into but the part that the diffuser fits into doesn't look the same. Google S3 rear bumper and A3 sline rear bumper and compare for yourself.

    Just to confirm now that i'm on a PC

    S3 - Notice the way the section that the diffuser fits into is wider at the bottom

    That sline you just posted Chris is the facelift one piece bumper with the mesh valance, the s3 is a 2 piece bumper with the grey diffuser so totally different.

    kent-Andy has a 2005 a3 according to his sig which would be a 2 piece bumper so he could always just replace the lower diffuser and the bit you pointed out that sticks out

    That's a prefacelift sline rear with my09 rear lights. You can see that it's a prefacelift a3 from the shape of the wing mirrors
