    skirts arent a must, ive got s3 front and rear bumpers on mine and it looks good, it wont look high with 18's it will look alright - even better with 30mm lowering springs, dont bother getting s3 springs you'll be wasting your money

    because s3 springs wont fit as its fwd anyway, just get some a3 lowering springs and you'll be sorted mate!
