    Looking to upgrade the rear bumper...

    with something subtle...Not-

    http://www.motionstyling.co.uk/shop_...95&redirectUrl=

    something that looks like a vaccum cleaner...any ideas? The S3 bumper would be an idea replacement, but I heard it is a bugger to fix...

    Cheers..

    Are the rear wheel arches the same on an S3 and an A3? Just wondering about fit lines etc

    From what I heard on here, it seems like a mare to fit properly....Like I say an S3 one would be ideal...

    New aero wipers and mats fitted, S3 bumper next...debt, what's that!!! lol

    Thanks guys. it matches the rs front really well, and now the rear look even cleaner now the badges have gone and thi wiper removed,

    Also now have had the lock smoothed out of the boot plinth.
