    Audi S3 door sills....

    Hey,
    does anyone know where to get some from?? mine have deep gashes in them from the previous owner and i think it ruins the look of the car. plus i need to get the rust underneath them fixed so thought i might aswell fix them.

    guessin there called door sills. on outside of door.lol

    so if anyone knows of a place to get some new ones or even used ones in very good nik i would much appreciate it. oh n how much they would be? some where around the yorkshire area? prefferibly near Wakefield. ha

    cheers

    try www.partsgateway.co.uk as they are breakers specialising in VAG and they email you when/if they have the part and will deliver otherwise dealers

    Ok well the soonest ill be able to ask would be Friday if thats ok?

    TPS stands for Trade Parts solutions and it's a local warehouse near me that sell's all the parts to the main dealers in this area. So all the parts are 100% genuine and you can buy at a fraction of the Dealers price.
    Same for GSF which stands for German, Swedish, Frech who also stock VAG parts .

    think they are. cant really tell from that picture. its the traingular grey part that runs along the bottom of the S3's doors.

    i only need the back right that isnt joined to the door and the front left part thats joined to the door.

    previous owns some how managed to get massive scratch marks on them.

    you got any more pics of them so i can tell properly??
