    RS3 air guide on S3 Sportback

    Anyone fitted the RS3 air guide on the S3 Sportsback? Are the RS3 parts for the wheel housing inner and air guide a direct fit on the S3? I would like to have some cold air directed to the brakes and the RS3 parts do look interesting.

    Wheel housing inner: 8P0 821191E (left) and 8P0 821192E (right)
    Air guide: 8P0 863149B (left) and 8P0 863150B (right)

    ok so here is the airguide listed in ETKA:




    And the RS3 wheel liner part:




    Both are RS3 parts... how does it work though? is it some sort of air flap that opens and closes or just an air duct to allow cold air to reach the brakes?
    also regarding the liner would it fit in the smaller arches of the standard Sportback?

    Its just a scoop Ash to direct cool charge air onto the brakes. No fancy opening/closing device there.

    im having my wishbones replaced so might just pick up the bits and fit them on at the same time...
    now that brake shield... is it compatible with the S3 345mm discs?

    yes they fit on an S3, I fitted the ttrs ones as these came out before the rs3 parts. I also have the ttrs caliper etc fitted.

    Even if the brake shield doesnt quite fit, they are easy to cut with tin snips. the bolts positions look correct.

    i'd agree, air going out of the arches will pull the car down more than air going out of the back....

    but idealy you should have a massive splitter and propper brake ducts

    Did you fit just the air guide or the wheel housing inner too?

    Do you reckon the RS3 wheel housing will be a direct fit on the S3, are they of the same size/width?
