    I have an 55 plate tdi sport, 8p2. As Its hard to come across a votex lip, I'm thinking about an S3 front bumper, will a s3 bumper fit aslong as its from around the same year without new wings/bonnet? As I've not long had my front end resprayed as someone pulled out on me.

    I like the s-line but if I'm upgrading I'd go for the S3 one.

    2007 8p2 s3 bumper will fit, u will need new grill and fog grilles too, u will have to either purchase a s3 front crash bar, or cut the original crash bar to clear the bumper to fit on, cut about 10 inches long and bout 1 inch is what i did mate, search for Sarah's a3 v6 I think it is (someone correct me if I'm Wrong on that thread) cheers

    Think if u have the split grille, then you will need to purchase a new bonnet too, if u have single grille then no need
