It's my birthday
Just ordinary S3 or RS3 19'' ones.. from ebay or fb market for bargain, you will have orig and cheap ...
I'd love having S3 or RS3 ones, however, I cannot find ones below GBP 2000 ...
If you can link me to some (on PM if not allowed here ) on a decent price, I'd highly appreciate it.

Hi guys,

I facelifted my car last year and thought it might be useful to share some of the part numbers, as it will be useful anyone wanting to do a similar project. Apologies if any are missing, as i have misplaced some of the receipts.

S3/ s-line front bumper
S3/s-line front panel
S3 front centre grill- 8v4 853 651 ac
S3 front lower outer grills- 8v3 807 681 & 8v3 807 682
Rear Bumper- 8v4 807 067 P
Rear diffuser- 8v3 807 521
Rear exhaust (s3)- 8v4 253 609
Facelift washer jet- not strictly required, but the prefacelift don't seem to sit flush on a FL bumper
Front xenon headlights-8v4 941 006 & 8v4 941 007
Rear Tailights(dynamic)-

.right outer: 8v4 945 091
.left outer: 8v4 945 092
.right inner:8v4 945 093
.left inner:8v4 945 094

Also you will need the connectors for the rear lights for which the part numbers and a guide has been covered by another member on a seperate thread.

Thw conversion itself was quite straightforward, apart from wiring the rear lights which i"m still having issue with and hoping someone on here could assist me with them, who has already undergone the process.

And here is the end result.
Do you know if this would be possible with a 2017 A3 8v 1.4 tfsi sport and if I could get sweeping front headlights to fit

I’m also wondering if I could do it with the rear bumper

Yeaah i have it.. But just sline.. Even front bumper you can.. The chassis design (because they call it 8v) since 2013 till 2019 is same..
8y chassis is probably different now..
What do you mean jus s line it has to be the s line car version to fit or a line bumper style to fit

You can't do front bumper unles u want to change the headlights and messing with coding and spending a lot of money

And is it the A3 sline bumper or is it an s3 bumper that fits for fl I’m confused also would and s3 diffuser fit if it’s the s3 or if it’s the a3 sline bumper

they are same .. s-line stands for that A3 has S3 body shop
except that they added quad exhaust for S3 for A3 s-line they kept twin
Just get whole rear bumper saves the hassle
