Some late S3's had a power bulge fitted by the factory, so it maybe the original bonnet for your car.

Thanks for that I have checked and the car is a original S3 with Weber carbs and the original bonnet flew off during last ownership and just need to fit correct bonnet

Thanks - I know some models have bulges on with Weber’s but it’s been difficult to establish original fitment though

What is the serial number? Don't have to have all the digits, just the first part such as 45- 78**. That will tell us if its influenced by the Super Safety specifications.
