Thanks

I need a bumper replacement due to an accident and the oem bumper is around 6-700 so i thought why not convert to a S3/RS3 bumper and grill. I am having a hard time finding a good website to buy these parts. I own a 2006 Audi A3 2.0tfsi. I am not very picky on how new the facelift is.

My car is an 06 and i also got in touch with them and they quoted me at around 1200 because i live in the US so the shipping and costums would cost extra. :(
I have an Rs3 xenon grille for sale honeycombed but will only fit late 2008 to 2012 so if your ever interested just pm me and i am sure i could find out shipping cost through fed express

Do you think the ebay kits are any good. This one in particular seems to have very good reviews so im tempted . Give me your opinion on it pls. https://www.ebay.com/itm/05-08-AUDI-A3-8P-RS3-STYLE-FRONT-BUMPER-CONVERSION-KIT-W-FOG-LIGHTS/121487272978?fits=Year:2006|Make:Audi|Model:A3&hash=item1c4934ac12:g:hh4AAOSwkh9acjNx&vxp=mtr
I guess it looks fine but is it a straight swap over or is there work needing to be done to convert from the car you have to the car you want . The down side going by the picture is the grille does look cheap but would do the job .

Looks the biz man , b4 you put it on take some pics off the removal off your bumper and then the installing off new one and do a small write up here ( with pics ) so as others can gain . Plus i would like to see how it looks
I will definitely do that. I just saw this other one and it look like it the bigger biz but i'm assuming since it's going to be shipperd from romania, it will come to around $900. Take a look if you'd like. I appreciate your help. Thank You https://www.magnatuning.com/en/product/8204/Audi-A3-8P-S-Look-Front-Bumper

You really are limited in the US, was the S3 not available before 2015 over there?

I am not sure honestly but it sucks not having many options
Is there not any retailers over there that could get you the same part and save you costs on importing ot maybe have a word with some british companys and see what cost they would add on to export to you . Worth doing a lot more reasearch

If you're going from pre facelift to facelift you will need to replace full front end:

bonnet + hinges
wings
bumper
wing mirrors (indicators build into wing mirrors on facelift instead of wings)
Slam panel is also different

Presumably new headlights too?
