    thought i'd put a copy of this in here to save loads of sticky's... (A3 - S3 WINGS)

    OK bascially the wings line up as normal under the bonnet check your gaps and also pay attention to the adjusters behind the splash guard and also the ones the front of the wings bolt too... onece lined up properly bolt it all up and you get a nice straight wing....




    OK when at this stage i will assure you, you need the wing end covers off a S3! part no's :- 8L9 821 111, 8L9 821 112

    these will ensure no crap comes through, the splash guards fitted good enough to warrent not worrying about getting S3 ones too so thats fine...

    now for the bottom of the wings... Basically the wing foul the sill on a normal A3 so i needed to cut a diagonal so the wing misses the sill
    unsure how clear this is but here:-





    So then i began to scratch my head about securing the lower part... So initially i made a steel mount which was very agricultrual... And i really needed something that curved with the sill and met the wing!?

    SO i had a brainwave and cut the sill part on the STD wing and adjusted it and welded it cut a hole and bolted it onto the wing ...

    this was not SOLID as i bolted into the STD plastic fitting but holds in place nice what could be done it washers and nut and bolt i'll leave mine just for now tho....

    heres the sill :- (apologise for the bracket looking gash i will be removing it tomorrow and rubbing it down and hammeriting it






    So basically thats the wing conversion... ALSO dont forget you need the S3 front bumper guides to fit the S3 bumper on too

    heres a front pic




    will explain about the rear bumper tomorrow as i'm tired

    Ad...

    Hi

    Does your A3 have the two split grilles? If so your gonna need a new bonnet 2006+, S3 bumper, S3 Grille (you got) S3 fog light surrounds and S3 foglights also you will need to trim the crash bar aswell. Or the bumper wont fit.
    If you already have the single grille front end you will need to glue the S3 grille into place as its shorter than the A3 grilles so wont be secure. And welcome to the forum

    I have just fitted an S3 rear bumper to my a3 tdi, was fairly straight forward, but it doesn't quite line up right, im guessing I need to buy the S3 rails and re fit the bumper on to the S3 rails?

    I also got a s3 tailgate with spoiler and the facelift rear lights, all in the same colour as my A3! One slight problem the tailgate is from a facelift and mine is pre facelift, the electrics for the central locking and lock barrel seem different so I wont be able to swap my lock over!? Has anyone done this successfully ?

    Cheers

    Rich

    I just acquired a Rieger front bumper off an S3 (for my A3) and am wondering the same thing... Do I need the guide rails for my 8L1 or no?
