    S3 Drivers Door needed...

    Afternoon all.

    It's happened.... Someone decided they wanted to plough into the side of me in the snow... Happy days.

    I now find myself needing a driver's door... Anyone have one/know of one? Pref Imola Yellow, but any colour will do.

    Sorry mods, I know this is a bit cheeky...

    Yeah, it a bummer. But not a great deal can be done.

    On the plus side, I needed to take my door card off to sort my windows out - I won't have to now....

    Amazingly, the sill, the wing and the quarter are all absolutely fine. It is just the door.

    It's someone I know (they live down my road), and I agreed to settle outside of insurance as long as they pay. I'm not that fussed on having a new one as I know they are in a difficult situation at the moment - long story - so I said a mint second hand one will be fine.

    ****e buddy wondered what Paul was talking about on Facebook!

    There is a seller selling an Imola rear bumper at the moment, might be worth a PM? I'll find the link chap.

    Bugger, it's ended!

    Yeah, will most likely go the ebay route to be fair...

    I was hoping to find an Imola Yellow one to save having to have it painted, but that's proving to be hard.

    OK, so good news.

    I have purchased a door from a guy over in Essex (A member on here although I don't know his username - Thanks Shaun) which is Imola Yellow...



    My mate's courier company should be collecting ASAP.

    OK, change of plan. Having bought the door, and this guy agreeing to collect - the Charlie Uniform November Tango lets me down.

    Thanks then.

    Now have to drive 300+ miles myself to go and get it. Not sure the door will fit in the back of the S3 either to be fair.

    Arse, arse arsey arse bum.

    If you have to I reckon removing the window regulator (which includes the door frame iirc) would get it in the back.

    OK, so the door is home with me.

    Excellent condition, one minuscule mark on the door, other than that, mint. Will get some photos later on, as off out to start work for a bit tonight.

    Will be fitting during the day tomorrow.... not sure how hard it will be, but there is only one way to find out I guess... lol.

    The hardest bit is changing the lock over, (that's if you want to ) the rest is very easy.

    Welly, I haven't done this yet but I read here and there on it, the connections should be just plug and play. the window frame including the mirror is held onto the door by four bolts, but I gave up when it came to the door lock, as it was a bit too much for me. sorry couldn't be specific. I used Elisa win to look up the setup.
