I have a few questions for you sarah as i want to do the same conversion you have done on my car, how did you know how much to cut the bumper reinforcer bar by? is it easier to buy an s3 one and bolt that on? How did you stop the exhaust pipe from looking like it has disappeared into the bumper as i have read that the s3 rear bumper does not go in as much at the bottom, were the front fogs a straight swap or was there wiring work required?

Thanks :)

Hey thanks. I enjoyed doing it tbh.

I know!!! If I had known what the prices were like over here I would have tried to bring stuff over. Crazy crazy prices here. Its still cheaper to buy some stuff in the UK and pay postage, how daft is that!!!!

Whats worse is second hand values here lol, I've never known prices be sooooo high! I should have brought some old Audis over lol.

So where abouts are you over here???

Hello all
I really neead your help, please.
I want to convert a pre-facelift A3 2004 (with double grill) to S3, single-frame. I bought from ebay a used S3 2008 bumper, but along with the bonnet and fog lamps, I have to change or modify the reinforcement bar :((. Can someone help me with information regarding the exact size that must be cut from reinforcment bar so that S3 bumper fits?

When I did mine, I used an angle grinder to take off approx. 20mm high tapering off to nothing. Worked fine.
