    On my old A3 i had body coloured bottom halfs, lowered with Porsche reps but they're were 19's. It did look good but mine was Ming Blue so didn't stand out as much. Def lower with the reps though!

    If it's a 1.6, then anything over 17" for the size of the rims is going to cripple the mpg, will look good though.

    Might know someone who's got some polished Millie Miglia Cup wheels up for sale in 18" if you'd be interested in them? They're the same ones that's on my old A3 in the pic, just mine were 19".

    If you after suspension, look no further...

    MY 1.6 had 18's on it when i got it - they didnt make much of a difference to the mpg to be honest but i got annoyed at paying £100 a tyre on a car that goes at the speed of an electric wheelchair.

    Maybe thats just me tho.

    I'd paint the skirts, and try and get some projectztwo bits for the front and rear if i were you.

    yep the perfect finish looks OEM I think you should also change the lower valance (the bit you want to keep black) to the foglight ones from the facelift car.
    You may be able to get one from here

    does it fit okay, I thought the S3 arches were wider.. Guess this doesn't effect the wing fitting at the front then? Any pics?

    Anyone know about the door blades?
