    Bottom of the S3 door.

    Think my other half has opened the door onto a high curb or something, (taken a notch out of it) basically, it looks like the bottom part is just screwed on. Anyone know where to get a new one? A part from Audi...

    Best option is audi tbh unless you find a breaker with one, I'm sure you want it to look as good as possible, but they need painting if bought new, talking about £50 from dealer plus paint.

    Cant you just get it filled & touched in.

    The bottom part of sportback doors come off usually held on with the two screws on the inside of the door and also may be some adhesive which comes off i cant quite remember but the small strip at the bottom of the door definatly came off on my sportback rear door as i also had a passenger hit a high curb

    Not sure what a smart repair would be? I can bend the silver part back and forwards. It's like a very bendy plastic that doesn't have the same shape or smoothness as the rest. Hard to explain.

    That would not cost much for a smart repair. Try revive and get a free quote they are good.

    You could remove the trim & give it to a bodyshop or smart repairer to do of the car anyway, I would for that small amount of damage, tbh, you could buy some P38 from Halfords & wet & dry, then fill, sand smooth to profile, then buy your paint/lacquer 2 pack from audi, I reckon you'd get away with that.
