Hello
If you want to make the 2009 facelift you need to adapt the new support wings to your chassis
I have made this facelift on my 2006 Audi A3 Sportback
If you have more questions I will be glad to help you

I think that you know what new parts you need. New bonnet, wings , front spoiler, new supports for the radiator (tragger), for headlights. Also not to mention about all the small parts that you need
The major problem was to align this wings with custom made new supports.
Yes I have photos with the upgrade ;)

id love to see detailed pics, so the biggest problem with the wings was adjusting them to fit, which sounds fine to me making holes wider longer etc? How easy was fitting the new headlights, just a little wiring?, i know they need new bracket fixings

I will make some pictures in detail for you tomorrow to see how to adapt them
My old headlights were bi-xenon with DRL.
The LED's were just plug & play no need to change the wires
Yes you need new bracket fixing beacause you will change the lock carrier with mountig for radiator
Also you need new bumper carrier with shock absorber for the carrier

I can't see your link on vagoc :(
