    S3 and TT vents

    These appear to be very popular mods on here and something id definately be interested in.
    From what ive read there are a few different types, does anyone have pictures of the different options? Also, i was parked next to an 08 plate TFSI yesterday that had the S3 rings - are these standard on this model or would they have been a modification?

    definately would like the S3 vents if possible - if not then the MK2 TT vents! Not a fan of the Mk1 version - dont think it would suit my car at all

    mk1 tt vents dont quite fit anyway, the connecting pipes are too short as far as im aware, the mk 2 tt's are the the best option, the S3 metal is a bit tin foil (why i changed them over to tt's)

    S3 ones match the buttons on the RNS-e better IMO

    In terms of price what's the going rate for both the Mk2 TT and S3 ones?

    i've got a set of Mk2 TTs in my car. they look

    all 8P3s have the "S3" silver vents. no offence to S3/8P3 owners but i think they look GASH. i'd swap them out for the prefacelift ones even

    I tend to agree, S3 vents looks like someone has sprayed their rings with some light silver metal look spray paint - very cheap.

    MK2 TT vents all the way, when I get round to them :-)

    Couldnt agree more, S3 ones look like they have been painted. They are also now standard in all facelift A3's so the TT ones look more special.
