guys i have a small crack in the plastic surrounding the slam panel and looked into a new bit of plastic as when the engine is on show its been noticed by a couple of ppl and it gets to me, however its part of the full plastic front panel :(

just wondering if anyone knows if the front plastic panels are the same on the 05-08 a3's as it is on the newer shapes ? as theres a cheap one iv found at the mo but is off a newer sportback

help asap if poss thanks :)

The facelift front panels are completely different and won't fit pre 08 reg cars. You would need a front panel off a 2004-2008 car. Doesn't matter if its a diesal, petrol, hatchback or sportback as they are all the same... ;)

It does matter. It's all part of the grill, which is different on the S3.
