    Quick question ... S3 wings

    Anyone know if the front wings from an S3 8L could be fitted to an A3 8L? Know they are wider which is why I'd like to fit them for the wider look and to line up the arches with the S3 front bumper that I plan to fit. Anyone done it? Thanks.

    Yes they can be fitted, but you also need S3 sides skirts for it all to line up.

    do the S3 side-skirts match up with the A3 rear quaters?

    it'll look wrong IMO, kinda like a anorexic a3 that's been working on its front wings down the gym

    That's true and I would buy one in a heartbeat. Two reasons why I wouldn't - insurance would cost more than the value of the car and I've already started the A3 to S3 conversion as a project. Gone too far to stop now. I can understand why some people here are against it but I enjoy doing it and am pleased with the results so far...
