yeah few bits - have an s-line spoiler, s-line rear valance, straight tail pipes, s-line suspension and s-line wheels! like you im thinking of an s-line front and then just the MY09 rear lights and im sorted exterior wise :)

i wasn't sure weather the MY09 lights fitted our shape thats good to know that may have to be my next purchase. do you need a new bonnet and wings for the front end conversion or do i just need the bumper?

wait hold on i think there's some confusion here... the MY09 lights WILL NOT fit your car without a whole front end swap, including bonnet, wings, grille, fog lamps, fog grilles, front slam panel, bonnet hinges, lock carrier, and wing mirrors and door modules because the indicators have been relocated.

if you want to do the MY06+ S-Line facelift then you'll need a bumper, grille, fogs, fog grilles, bonnet, rear spoiler, rear bumper/valance (or you can get the MY09 rear bumper and valance because they look quite good, are the same money and are also a straight swap)

you can get a second hand one for around the £100 mark on ebay and then spraying it will be around £100 as well. I imagine you could do the whole conversion including spraying for under £400 if you search around. if you are lucky enough to find bits already in your colour then you are quids in! ive seen s-line bumpers go from anything like £30 to £120!

jesus yav gotta change allsorts haa. would the MY09 rear lights look stupid without the front end conversion?

sorry i missed that. MY09s are a straight swap lol. if you buy new they even come with all the bulbs so they're literally plug and play.

i've got MY09s on mine and mine's not got the MY09 front. looks 1,000,000x better. i wonder if MY11 lights would look better on your silver car tho

why would they?? they are only a little different!!! i have the newer rear end except the lights and it looks great imo! keep an eye out on ebay for an s-line/s3 spoiler and also the lower valance - makes the world of difference and both can be brought and sprayed for around £200!

hmmmm what do they look like? so is ur front end the same as mine or do you have the sport full grille front end mate?

may have to im not keen on the standard back bumper me dads got the black edition and the bumper on that looks miles better than mine. i might watch out for a one in silver save a few pennys :p
 

roston100

Registered User
yep! keep an eye on ebay and in the classifieds section at the top of the forum as ive seen quite a few come up!

MornyA3

If you lower an SEon coils you will seriously feel the diference, so if i was you i would contemplate lowering springs first .

I don't know who's told you that you'll gain 25BHP from a decat but this isn't true at all pal, you won't notice much difference at all.

If you're after an S-line grille for your front bumper when or if you get one i have one for sale. Just haven't got around to advertising it yet.
