    So tomorrow morning I will go and pick up my 57 Plate Sportback, just one doubt in my mind, should I have stumped up the extra money and got a Facelift model.......

    8P2 to 8P3? Wouldn't bother me at all. Can't tell the difference.

    The Sportback only comes in facelift, so probably not.

    Edit: Oh wait, that was S3s... nevermind.

    You can but it will cost a bit as you need a new bumper wings and a load of other stuff.

    Have a look around the forum as i am sure there is a sticky for this at the top of the page.

    Yes but, no but, but yes :p

    You can but you will also need to change the wings, front bumper, bonnet and a few other slight mods. 2K+ if you do well on sourcing parts then you always have old parts to sell on.
