    A3 2001-2003 wing panels

    are the facelift models ( 2001-2003) panels same as the 1997-2000 ones?

    esp the front wings...

    Thanks

    No they are not, the facelift ones have to accomodate the facelift headlamps which are slightly bigger I think?

    yeah that's why I'm actually asking...

    I have fitted facelift headlamps on my prefacelift. did cut the odd bit from the wings but I'm not happy wiht the work.

    Just wanted to know whether the wings are same, can get them cheap and get them resprayed properly

    The front wings differ with regards to the side indicator also.

    yes you can, as long as you take into account the indicators and the face lift headlamps. Also depends if you put S3 ones on as well. Whcih can also be done

    No, I guess S3 ones are wider. Won't suit it unless I change the rears also.

    Anyway, i guess I'll be changing them. i already have facelift headlamps and the indicators won't be a problem

    Thanks all
