    S3 Sill plates - Kick Plates - Entry guards

    Ok the S3 labeled entry strip that greets you when door is opened?

    Anyone ever bought these for S3 skirt conversion or even replacement? Just want to get a idea of the price for a 3door set

    thanks in advance

    in terms of false advertising the metal strip can always be replaced or an s-line put over it, but its the actual plastic piece that sits there, no point in starting to hack up the original, may as well do it right and have a tidy job at the end of it

    really? well ive got all the other parts required so i guess i could go ahead with the painting/fitting and then look at them, if trimming the s-line ones isnt a tidy job then il just bite the bullet with the S3 ones as want it to look spot on

    with 55000 positive feedback i doubt he's a crook. i get the impression the German sellers are generally more trustworthy than the Brit users of eBay

    no i doubt he's a 'crook' but saves to be cautious when you don't speak the lingo to read through/translate all his negative feedback lol

    no i all seriousness seems exactly what i'm after, and perfectly legit was just passing comment

    You really should remove the old sticky tape aswell, so they sit flush when fitting new or replacing sline with S3 ones, I'm sure they were cheaper than that tbh.

    The skirts are going over that area mate, so unless you want it raised slightly, remove any residue just to be sure, cause trust me once they're stuck down, those bar stewards only come of with force, usually bent aswell, I took the approach on cars now to pre-empt this issue, white spirit & blisters & takes a while as cant use thinner as to strong for the lacquer/paint, so spirit & water to wipe down after to make sure no lacquer damage, job done, looks perfect on number of cars.

    i got the parts from TPS mate, 2x skirts, 2x door bottoms, 2x end caps and several other fittings which the guy at TPS said i would probably need! The body place that fitted them used most of the fittings so was glad i had that chat with TPS!

    Thinking back it was about Ł380 with the actual skirts being about Ł220 of that so my advice to anyone would be get those second hand if you can and buy everything else brand new! Now in terms of a sportback mate you'll be looking at a figure closer to Ł700 brand new so sourcing the main skirts second hand and getting everything brand new will offer you a considerable saving

    As a price guidance: In experience TPS is about the same price as Audi garage with employee discount 10%-20%

    S3 Sill plates - Kick Plates - Entry guards

    I realise this is an old thread but i could do with some input. I've bought and painted the skirts, door trims and the front end caps and just ordered the clips and stuff from TPS. But...... Ideally I don't want the S3 kick plates, would it be best to buy the Sline ones and try mod them and sikkaflex/glue/tape them down? Or buy the S3 ones and remove and replace the S3 chrome trim for the Sline trim? Would this even work?
    I'm gonna to write a fitting guide with plenty pics after, try put everything in one place!

    Problem is the S3 sill plate plastic trims are taller as such to go over the skirts when fitted, sline ones are to short & would leave a gap, also the inserts are stuck down like a weld, so end up damaging possibly upon removal, I'd still with S3 ones if I was you.
