    ~RS~ is that your white audi?

    No mate, mine can be seen in my signature pic. The white one belongs to a guy in the US iirc. Nice car that!

    Until I save up for the other part needed. I didn't realise I needed another part until you pointed it out. Do you know how much the other cost?

    Help Required!!

    Digzz, the upgrade you have completed is stunning!

    I need your advise, I own a 54 A3 Sportsback and had an accident front end ( Nightmare! )

    Anyway, I have bought a full front end of a 2010 A3 in order to facelift! Easy I thought!!! Nope nightmare!!

    I've sent the car into the body shop with the complete front end of the new shape A3 thinking 2 weeks job sorted however they have come up with a problem, The new shape wings don't fit the inner wing of the car? How did you get your wings to fit?

    I can't use the old wings because then the lights won't fit and the bonnet gaps are too big.

    Please can you advise because this is driving me up the wall!

    They do fit, except for the top 3 fixings under the bonnet, the 3 brackets have to be adapted slightly & possibly weld a rivet nut sunken in place for one of the fixings as the old wing fixings arent the same as it goes from a 4 point fixing to a 3 point, any decent bodyshop should have a panel beater with weld equipment to fix them to the inners, so if they cant fit, then go somewhere else.

    Sorry yes the wings fit but not completely. I was hoping 2 out of the three fixings would fit without the need of welding however I don't think thats the case. Also I notice the wing doesn't sit at the correct level (as the orignal wing ) due to the depth of it. How do you get round that?

    Well the work shop I sent it too ....Just Pushed the wings down until it was all aligned up. It didn't need any welding at all.

    Could you do me a favor and post a pic of your inner wings?

    So are your wings bolted in using the fixings of the wing ( without any mod to the wing? )

    Thanks again

    Now Ive seen this comparison a few times in different posts and I can honestly say I can see almost no difference between the two airbags?

    Sorry to say, there is no way they fixed the new wings to the existing inners without modding the brackets or the inner wing fixings, I know this 1st from Phil who was the 1st to do & 2nd myself who had to do the exact same thing, afaik 2 brackets needed slightly adjusting as in holes elongated & 1 bracket has a new rivet nut sunk into the inner wing, whatever is done, there is 100% some form of modding required, old wings have 4 fixings in different locations with no brackets, new wing has 3 fixings with U brackets.

    This is 100% correct as I have done this myself, the fixing closet to the front panel fixes in the original fixing and the other 2 brackets need to be moved to suit them. Case closed.

    Cool

    Spot on thanks for that!!

    I think i'm nearly there with the wing. Hopefully problem solved!!

    Now onto the the next problem ( or in your case not )

    I see the wings don't have side repeaters and woudn't pass an MOT without therefore new mirrors required, however how do the repeaters work? did you need to get them wired up?

    I will post some pics this coming week of the transformation!

As it's driving me a bit mad sometimes ..as people don't know I'm turning into a Road.......Plus My M.O.T is coming up very soon....

    As NHN Has stated or you could do what this guy has done :

    Facelift mirrors fitted.....

    Hmm, gutted.... This is a problem!

    Not a cheap fix, I'll be honest I haven't thought this one through.

    Whats the cheapest and easy way to complete, I know this goes against everything I'm doing but It could be a hole in the wing!!!
