    Me 2, if you find some that fit let me know, the S3 back end is a right b*tch for getting flick marks.

    You need to buy the A3 rears - they fit front and back.

    The back ones are pretty much a straight fit and the profile matches the bumper. They just drill into the rear wheelarch liner.

    Fitting A3 rears to the front is a bit more difficult as you can only drill one hole into the arch liner. To mount the top, you either need to drill into the wheelarch (not a good idea), or what I did was make some tiny G clamps to hold the mudflap against the lip of the wheelarch. To do that I bought some U shaped aluminium profile from B&Q - approx 2cm by 2cm. Cut a 2cm length, drilled a hole in one of the uprights of the U, cut a thread in it with a tap, then fitted a small grub screw. Hey presto, a tiny G clamp that I put behind the lip on the wing and then screwed the grub screw into the mudguard. Mine have held for about 3 years. I can take some piccies if you want but it will be a while as I won't be home in daylight for a couple of weeks.

    Yep, the front ones hit speedbumps. It acts as a useful reminder as I'd rather scrape the front mudflaps than the rear diff
