    Easy mate , and sadly no

    First of all its a 3dr model (hence 8P3 ... ...) so it defo wont fit a sportback. Sportbacks have 8p4 codes for their part numbers. And the spoilers are completely different
    as the 3dr has a cut out for the brake light, where the sportback gets a new one


    Hmm... edit that , are you talking about the rear spoiler on the tailgate? Or the one on the bumper? You got me confused there

    And i dont get any hits on ETKA with this part number

    Yer I cant see it in etka and I am talkin about the lower part of the bumper with a cut out for the detachable towbar and I thought the same and it cost me 190 now am
    Extreamly annoyed as I ask the guy behind the parts desk at Audi for a sport back one and when I got it I had no reason to
    Doubt him what a mug don't know what to do
    Now as don't have any spare cash to buy another !:(

    Well, whether its a upper spoiler or a lower spoiler since it has a part number of 8p3 it wont fit your car!

    So you better go to them again and argue :)

    Did you give them a VIN number (your vin to be exact) to sort things out when you ordered?

    If so, then its 100% the guys -behind the desk- fault

    agreed with the above. you should still have statutory rights anyway. even tho it's sprayed you can argue you were unknowingly supplied the wrong part. if he doesn't agree take it up with trading standards and have a word with Audi UK.

    Part no. you require assuming you have a twin tailpipe is :-

    8P4 807 434 C

    £80 in pimer or twice that painted in your colour.

    Sorry you've been messed about - take it back and demand the correct replacement.
