I'm interested in compatibility of parts of the 2003 (euro-only, I know) A3 with the B5 A4/S4. I know the older A3's were similar body style to the B5, but I didn't know if there was a significant update by 2003 (more towards the B6 and current B7 A4/S4 --- I think its a D9? something like that).
Appreciate your help in advance.

Allthough it was facelifted in 2005, there were no major changes. That model is allmost identical with the current US A3.
Picture 8P 2003:
If you mean the generation before that one, it is the 8L, which was produced between 1996 and 2003, with a facelift in 2000.
That car shares a lot of parts with the 3rd generation VW Golf.

I hope this helps..
