    Question Rear Arch Flaring.. :/??

    Hello again all,

    Ive finally got my s3 front end sorted and my side skirts arrive next week, the last thing I need to do to get the S3 look I want is flare my rear arches as looking down the side of my car from the back, it looks silly..

    Has anyone ever ad it done before or knows anyone that can do the falring/rolling?

    Thanks, Ryan

    I have seriously looked into this...

    So far the best option I have found is to get a company like: www.archenemy.co.uk to do it. I want that S3 rear arch look too... And without investing serious bodyshop wedge, I doubt the look would be that close to an S3.

    If you do decide to go the arch rolling way, remember that rolling/flaring using a rolling machine can crack your paint work. Good luck. Keep us posted, I would definately like to know the outcome as I am going to be doing the same thing in the next few weeks (before summer).

    Could you not find an S3 shell, cut the arches off, cut the same portion off of your car and have it welded, filled and painted?

    Welly's suggestion of cutting out and replacing yours is the best bed I would of though, my mates just done something similar for a customer of his (RS4 arches on an S4).

    Tbh though from someones who done the whole 'lookalike' thing in the past just save your money and when you can insure an S3 buy one, so much better than throwing money away !

    If I had an A3 I wouldn't want to make it look like an S3 unless it had the beans to back it up!

    I had a mate who had a celica GT4 and people were trying to race him all the time so he took out the spoiler extensions (those of you who have seen the old GT4 will know what I mean) to try and make it look more like a standard celica.

    whilst the engine in the picture IS an AGU, the TIP is most definately not a ko3/ko3s one. Looks like a ko4 TIP to me, and the airbox and maf housing look a little bigger too....

    Perhaps it's a ko4 conversion?

    Seats are standard A3 though, not changed.

    honestly prawn thats the 2.5 inch maf and tip for a 1.8 t all the charge pipes etc are standard also everythin there is standard even the bosch dv is standard an i dint think that would hold up under 280 bhp

    As if you'd spend 14k turning an old R reg 1.8 into an S3...You'd just buy an S3!
