    Ok guys so I drive the Audi a3 8p 2004 model and when I got it I done the 06
    front single grill upgrade which I had to get a new bonnet to fit the upgrade.
    My question is..... What all do I need to do a newer model facelift ie 08/09 facelift.
    Will I need to replace my bonnet/wings and obviously the front bumper. I want to do the upgrade on
    the lights front and back also.

    Can anyone shine some light on this as to rough costs etc?

    Thank you muchly guys and gals! ;)

    Bi-Xenons/Bi-Xenon adaptives? Levelling/Headlight washer system? You doing it? Someone else to do it, your looking at thousands fella. Its alot of work and alot of money.

    Exactly I detailed out the work check the stickys, if you do it yourself the price isn't too severe but don't go expecting a bonnet and bumper change to cut it like with the first facelift this is serious work

    Yeah I know what you guys mean. I was researching it a few months back and realized that my current facelift was a doddle compared to what ill be expected to do with this new facelift.

    the car is away at a radiator specialist at the mooment to get it pressure tested to see if i have a leak or what the deal is with the car using up so much coolant. (hope its just a leak) :( .

    My most important chage at the moment is to get my comfortable ride back to normal i.e remove the ****ty cheap a$$ coils and put in OEM shocks and just fit my old springs in as they were perfect anyway. I'll be ordering the shocks at start of the week and have my trusty brother fit them as if i was to even attempt to fit them id f&ck the whole thing up. :D

    after I have the suspenion sorted out ill start to buy bits and bobs to prepare for the new facelift. my girlfriend has me saving all my pennies at the moment as we are heading to new york a week in december to also see the new year in so as for now ill gather all the pieces i need to do the facelift and once i have everything I'll book some time off work an get the mini project started. :)

    but please feel free to post links to parts part numbers etc etc.

    cheers guys! :)
