    Fake audi S3 sportback skirts

    If anyone is thinking to buy it from ebay. Don't do it! Spare yourself the money...

    Audi A3 8P (2005 - ****) SPORTBACK *** S3 *** S-Line *** SIDE SKIRTS *** | eBay

    I bought them and they are crap. Some piece at the top of the skirt broke down during the transport and some after I hardly touch it. And as well they are not straight in all line... So my advice is to avoid these buy and look for some alternative (let me know for one if u find it

    I can attach pictures tomorrow...

    I went to few guys here who are doing installs. Both said that is not worth to put these on such car. These kind of material was used on old golfs mk2... Don't know... I decided not to use them, not in these condition anyhow. I will post the pictures.

    btw. if yours are ok and u are doing the install let me know please...

    OEM are the way to do it, but they are not cheap from Audi. I posted a thread asking where I could buy some but did not have much luck.

    I went to pick some side skirts up for a mates golf today, just incase, I asked the guy if he had any s3 or votex spoilers back there. He didnt but he was telling me the problems he used to have buying and selling S3 replica spoilers from other companies.
    They never fit properlly but the worst thing he came across was a load of the spoilers he brought had some kind of foam inside that would expand through on hot days and cause some kind of bubbling effect.

    I know this forum is OEM or die but its for a good reason. You wouldnt put marmite on a fillet steak, dont put taiwanese parts on a german car.
    ....................I'll make a build thread one day.

    I also buy from him an S3 spoiler, it was pretty good, I paid 65 GBP but refunded 40 GBP.. So for 25 GBP, its not a bad deal, postage included

    Damn look at the bends in them, not very straight are they, also looks like the bottoms are complete as they should wrap around underneath, cant see the indented part that does this.

    Im also wondering about this skirts but will hold and wait for your opinion. This skirts are 100% replica of s3 skirts or they match to a3 sportback slats doors without changes?

    Fibre glass tat save your money imo,you might get them looking ok with bonding and modification but if you bond them and a stone shatters a piece out of them or if the jack catches them then its the job of trying to order more plus get the old ones back off etc

    Yeah but even the oem ones are just plastic, if a jack catches them they're in the same situation anyway, so thats kinda irrelevant imho.

    I doubt a stone would shatter them as easy as that tbh, with paint & lacquer.

    I bought them, actually they are almost great! Not a rubbish part for sure.. Some fitment issues happened but with a craft hand, it will be very very well.. I'll take some pictures this weekend after we made it %100 fitted in all aspects..

    I recommend for that price..

    Gotta wait untill Friday evening

    BTW mine is not broken as yours, it was almost perfect.. And the material is rigid, not getting broken that easyly..

    We could ot have enough time on the previous Friday, so we just make a quick installation. But I gotta say, you have to shave your door blades a little + maybe you will have to shave the skirts inside parts which comes under the door blades. So you can apply the door sills..

    I'll put some pics definitely, no worries.. Just be patient

    You need to fit the S3 door bottom blades so they come out flush with the skirts, otherwise it looks rubbish & can make water divert into that area easily.

    Would sanding down the blades be good enough?

    Sanding down, for a start it would look awful, 2nd the s3 door bottoms are wider anyway so they make the doors flush with the skirts, also the gap would be prone to water sitting, so could cause issues with paint & rust over time under the sills, so anyother route apart from s3 bottoms would be a major fail imho

    Today we finished the job, I'm %80 satisfied since they were rubbish cheap )

    About blades, yes they will fit by shaving but as you said, htey do not flush like the s3 blades.. So I'll have them in time for sure but for now I just bought facelift led headlights, so I'm broke They have to wait for a while.. I'll put pics BUT don be so rude if you do not like them :P )
