      dealership is around 800$ i believe. or you can find one used on "rebuilt" websites for around 500$ without grills.

      they've been out of stock since last year.
      get it from ttshop.
      old one here will cost you $750 anyway and you have to purchase the grills.

      I don't know where you got this price from. Mine was replaced through insurance. Standard TT bumper Skin was $450.00, 3.2 S-Line skin was $1,249.00 plus 2 brackets @$60 each. Then also you need new lower grills, 2@ $30 1 @$65.00 if I remember correctly.

      I was all excited when I first read that. I guess not

      FYI: The 3.2 skin is made out of a completely different material with more Flex. So if you do the conversion you end up with a stronger skin.

      you're a little off,
      1.8t TT bumper from dealership: 750$
      1.8t *rebuilt* oem bumper from random shops: 425$ plus 80$ shipping (prestige's price)

      3.2 TT bumper from dealership: don't recall, call a dealership
      3.2 TT bumper *rebuilt* from prestige: 500$ plus 80$ shipping

      there are shops out there that sell skins only that have no brackets, those are cheap shells that body shops need to basically glue overtop of the existing bumper,

      the 3.2 bumper does indeed need 2 wider spacers to fit it to the standart 1.8t TT,

      you can interchange the lower and upper center grill between both bumpers, the outter lower grills however are different sizes. 1.8t sides are 80$ a piece from dealership, not sure on the 3.2 ones.

      center lower section of a 1.8t is about 120$
      center lower section of a 3.2 is more like 180$

      upper grill for the standard or 3.2 i think i saw are close in price at $220?


      bumper plastic information: 1.8t bumpers are known as urethane i'm pretty sure, they're easy to repair with plastic weld, yet they aren't the most crack resiliant ones, but far better then fiberglass.
      3.2 bumpers are a different type of plastic they're a yellow type that is very rare and is hard to repair according to my body guy who has done tons of body work on audi's. They are indeed stronger and less likely to crack, so that's why they are so much more money. It is not recommended to buy a *refurbished* 3.2 bumper. As the repair probably won't hold for too long.


      this is from the research i have found, if you got better facts i'll edit my information.

      prices i have posted are quoted within the last 2 weeks from a dealership in NY, not sure if it vary's by state or w/e.

      where can I get these spacers?
      I finally got my 3.2 bumper for $599 + $90 shipping\
      it's refurb and primed.

      no idea, it's just something i remember reading about. otherwise i think the 3.2 doesn't mount properly on the sides.

      then again that bumper you got may have came with them?

      i was told to stray away from the refinished ones because they are sometimes poorly repaired. Careful with it!

      You just need to buy the 3.2 bumper brackets to replace the ones that came with the 1.8T powered cars.
