    Hi all,

    Urgently need some advise, I have a 2009 A3 (facelift) and am in need of a flitch and windscreen. Would these be different to the pre-facelift (2006 shape)?

    Thanks in advance

    If the flitch is the inner section where you see the top of the suspension strut, I would expect its possibly the same as these don't tend to need swapping when people upgrade from the 2005-08 front end to the 2009-12 version

    Well the windscreen is...the windscreen lol

    The flitch is the bit behind the wing, the part that holds it to the car, think it's part of the chassis?

    Yes that's the one! Do they change the front wings on an upgrade?

    Thanks

    the wings are different on the 2009- they have a support bracket that acts as a spacer

    from the top of the inner wing to the under side of the wing, you have to modify it abit so you can line the wing and bonnet up, its a tricky job but its worth it

    Thanks Foxymk1, that's a great help! :icon_thumright:

    I'll be giving it in to a body shop so hopefully they will know what they're doing!
