    New A3 Bodykit

    As some of you may know ive ordered a new A3 TDi Sport for March 1st
    I am planning on buying the Vortex bodykit and having it fitted before taking delivery.

    But is there any other bodykits out there i should be looking at for the New A3 ??
    If there are can you guide me in the right direction, or post some pictures up!


    Thanks very much.

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    I definately think the Oettinger kit is worth a look, I can't recall what the vortex kit looks like exactly, but IIRC it didn't look as factory as the previous A3 vorex kit...IMO. I can't recommend Oettinger enough, I love every product they do....if only my bank manager did!

    I know I keep saying this, but why can't Audi bring the car out like this in the first place??!

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    Wish,

    I expect based on the previous kit you'd be looking at around 1500 Euros, the previous kit was 1100 when offered at discount, so I'd expect the new one to be a bit more expensive. Will have a chat with the guys at the Oettinger stand tomorrow at the Essen motorshow and try and get a price and some more pics for you.....

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    I have gone for the Audi wheels because i heard the vortex were a nightmare to maintain and clean, so i decided to go for the star deisgn is it 5 or 6 spoke can't remember.

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    The 'Stars' are an option from new, 315 i think, but to be honest i havent gone for them as they are the same size as the standard wheels (like you have already got)

    Each person has a different taste, but i perfer the standard.

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    Your totally right about taste, its just i didn't fancy the fact of loosing my front foglights along with drilling the body unlike the Audi fitted one. Plus I like the Audi workmanship and overengineering of everything they do at their best. However the oettinger one loosk smooth aswell.

    Body kit etc from Kamei. Very nice. Potential look for a new (R)S3? Car looks good in Dolphin Grey as well.

    I like the top four pics for this Sportec one as well:

    OMG I agree, thats it.

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    Thats defintaley what it will look like in years to come if you look at future audi's. I some how wonder what engone they put with the mean face it has, i somehow suspect a large growl from the looks of the car such as a 3.2 turbocharged or even bi-turbo if they are feeling over the top. However its not my decision with what audi decide as they will market it as needs be, hopefully with them looks abaove and a really hefty engone with all the bits and bats added on. You know the standard RS "bits".

    Dave----> Does that car make you feel **** at the moment, it does to me as it makes me feel so jealous. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    Did you see the Carbon Fibre interior bits in the Sportec A3? very sexy!
    Sportec haven't decided yet whether they will produce the 7 spoke, some of the other importers didn't like them, but the girls on the stand and it seems you and me both like them, everyone elses opinion?
    I could show them this thread itf everyone likes it enough [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
    ...and we could convince them to go into production with them!

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    The 10 spoke alloys from Sportec are hard to beat, so I can understand their reluctance to produce a wheel which isn't as good or better.....maybe....

    Didn't take a pic of the carbon bits unfortunately but they were pretty nice to say the least.

    Wow What can i say, thanks for taking the time and trouble of posting the pictures up.
    I think im gonna stick with the Audi kit, but the twin exit exhausts look lovely !

    Ive changed the colour of the car again !!! From Lava to the Black Metallic, Just waiting to hear from the dealer to make sure the factory will let them, as the car has gone confirmed production.

    Re: New A3 Bodykit

    I like the Kamei bodykit, and the Sportec 7 spoke - in fact i would buy a set of the Sportec 7 spokes next year with the next S3. Although I would quite like them in a dark shiny finish....

    There not in the brochure yet. And the dealer didnt know the price of them, but i just had to have them to get the car in the garage without opening the window and pulling in the mirror.
    I was in his office when he was ordering the car and spotted it on the system, so he ordered them for me.

    John, I liked the 7-spoke alloys as well, but agree that the 10 Spokes are hard to beat [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif[/img]

    As for the Carbon Trim, I don't think any of us took pics of it, but IIRC the trim in the A3 was lighter than on the Cayenne, and I thought the Carbon bits on the Porsche were sweet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
