    s3 rear arch moulds

    Hey,

    I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a set of rear s3 arch moulds, I dont even know if they do them!
    If not then does anyone have any ideas or prices of where they can get flared?

    Any help would be very much appreciated [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    The S3 rear arches are the same as all A3's.

    Its only the front wings which are flared more on the S3 vs. A3.

    Incorrect, the S3 has a wider rear body to match the fronts, which is also the same reason why some people are having problems with fitting an S3 rear bumper to an A3 body, and they don't line up.

    Yep. S3 arches much wider than A3. Total pain as you can buy a rear quarter panel from Audi for an A3 if you damge yours, but you can't buy just the rear quarter for an S3. Where's the logic in that???

    Sorry Sam007, i never realised that they were different at the rear. It begs the question: is it worth changing?

    I've had my S3 2.5 yrs and never noticed.
