Finally got one thanks for a member on here "JimmyJames", you are a life saver mate Went out of his way for me. So i owe you big time for this Few photos will be uploaded once its back this week. But here a photo for now

    That is some low static! You'll do well to get the front down that far to get it sitting level!

    Thats why a chassis notch is needed. Front sits quite low with the helper springs removed but not low enough.
    With a notch it will be perfect and stop my driveshaft from taking a beating every now and then.

    Yeah fella, RS6 grille wasnt a problem to get. Just the S3 one was proving quite difficult. Had a call off the garage to say the front bumper and grilles are all done. I can collect it tomorrow. Still waiting on a foglight grille but should be here tomorrow.

    Hi mate,

    You would be best just buying an RS3 grille. There one on ebay RS3 8P front center grille chrome + black color for RS3 A3 S3 Audi style Europe | eBay

    But yes to make the honeycomb grille you need your current grille and then a RS4/RS6/TTRS/RS5 grille what ever grille you want to use. But personally if i had an 8P3 id just buy the RS3 grille.

    Will that clear with just the arch screw mod? Been playing with the lows on mine today and it seems to clear ok with a 8.5" 215/40/18 ET 45, but that tab that used to hold the screw looks mighty close!

    Seems to be fine. It rubbed with some fat chick in the back (not my misses may i add, some girl i was meeting her friend). But the last time i drove it i had two of my mates with me and it didnt rub at all with him in the back. Rear wheel arches are getting rolled just to be on the safe side and -2 camber maybe a bit more not sure yet. Going to see how it gets on with -2.
    And the tab already been smoothed out so that will help but if i do have any issues i'll get them sorted. I do want wider arches so this could make me do it quicker.

    Picked the car up yesterday. My mate didnt do the notch as he not done it before and didnt feel comfortable doing it.
    So at least he was honest. Most likely taking it to Low Standards in Staffordshire a week saturday to get done. Really cant be arsed driving an 5 hour round trip:| But has to be done.

    S3 skirts never got fitted so be back at my mates garage to do that but now going to wait till i have enough money to widen the arches. Do you think 25mm on the front arches will be that noticeable? This is how it currently sits. Need four wheel alignment but proving quite difficult to find any one down here who will do it
    Excuse the photo took it on my bb.

    I'm eyeing up a damaged 2008 A3 s-line SB so if i get that i plan on doing the facelift and air. And i do want a SB so would rather facelift that. The 3door wont be going any where though. Depends if the guy comes back and accepts my offer. Plus arch work should cost much going to my mates garage.
