    No, not without cannibalising.

    Just a matter of cutting? Or more body work needed?

    Think it's going to be my only choice, wanted to fit the S3 rear diffuser to it, but cant find any later models in silver :(

    Thanks!

    Is it in silver? Not in a rush to get one so preferably trying to avoid getting one resprayed.

    You'll never find one perfectly matched to your colour, even silver has untold shades & the S3 rears are like gold dust anyway.

    I managed to find an sline front end in my colour and was local to me, and is a good match, suppose i was just lucky.

    Doesn't have to be an S3 bumper, as i can source the S3 diffuser separately.
