(just looked on UK Ebay and what im after is £40 about $60 but on Ebay AU its $180!!!) Will do some good pics soon now I have the plates on and able to enjoy driving him about. Feels good too. WAnting to try to get him on the beach to do some pics lol....

    I have a few questions for you sarah as i want to do the same conversion you have done on my car, how did you know how much to cut the bumper reinforcer bar by? is it easier to buy an s3 one and bolt that on? How did you stop the exhaust pipe from looking like it has disappeared into the bumper as i have read that the s3 rear bumper does not go in as much at the bottom, were the front fogs a straight swap or was there wiring work required?

    Thanks :)
    Chris

    Very nice A3 Sarah! Like the fact that you are not scared to chop and modify your A3 to meet your taste. Looks great, well done! :)

    Hey thanks. I enjoyed doing it tbh.

    I know!!! If I had known what the prices were like over here I would have tried to bring stuff over. Crazy crazy prices here. Its still cheaper to buy some stuff in the UK and pay postage, how daft is that!!!!

    Whats worse is second hand values here lol, I've never known prices be sooooo high! I should have brought some old Audis over lol.

    So where abouts are you over here???

    When I did mine, I used an angle grinder to take off approx. 20mm high tapering off to nothing. Worked fine.

    Hi, I have recently bought a 2007 s3 front bumper and bonnet for my 04 a3 3.2 v6. Just wanted to know how to fit the headlight washers to my existing washer bottle. Thanks for the help.
