    Probably better off calling them, off the top of my head it was around £540 for the skirts & fixings.
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....

    AFAIK the RS3 uses the same skirts as the S3, that price wont include the door blades or the different sized door sill covers that the rs3/S3 use. Might be worth asking N8 for part numbers as I'm sure he fitted some to his.

    You went for the matt alu pack, but why not the rear spoiler?

    I've read this post and tend to agree with both sides on the replica debate... I for 1 hate replicas, but this is where i'm torn.... To have an A3 lets face it the styling is pretty bland! The only way to go really is s3/rs3... I'd love to have the rs3 kit on my car, but heres where the other bit comes in... I would de-badge the rs part and keep mine solely badged as s3 (because its not a RS).... You kinda contradict yourself slightly in this thread by saying you would never go and buy this car at 40k but then your more than happy to let the untrained eyed people amongst us think that you had....?

    IMHO I think the work you have done is great, car looks good.... But a pet hate of mine is when people try and pass things off as just something they are not! With objects and people themselves..... Debadge the rs and your on to a winner in my view tho!

    how did they do that without setting the alarm off?

    I didn't go for the Matt aluminium on rear spoiler as in not keen on it to be honest, it just doesn't do it for me so left it as it was.

    The Rs3 badges were already fitted to the body parts so also left them as they were to save any paint damage whilst removing.

    I'm quite happy to drive around in something that looks 40k, if I was spending 40k on an Audi then there would be no doubt in my mind that it wouldn't be an Rs3 sitting on my driveway. I really can't justify the price on them? Don't get me wrong there nice cars but 35-40k

    Hi nezz, if I can remember the spoilers are £350 in Audi plus the beak light I ended up buying a complete tailgate from Germany for £350 inc delivery, therefore I save on brake light and I get to sell my tailgate to claw back some pennies :-) can't remember if there was vat to be added on main dealer price or if it was included? I have a list with all items needed and part numbers on from dealer. I will dig it out

    Rs3 rear spoiler is a must, they really do set the rear end off, much nicer than your big standard spoilers as the reflection of spoiler on the rear screen really emphasizes it's shape.

    Hi hollow, it has passed my mind several times as I have some property projects on the go but I know I be sorry if I did let it go, as I have done a few years back with my Rs500 and most recent Escort Cosworth.
    Everything is pretty much new on the car, engine has covered just 20k miles, and pretty much fully loaded, it's also 170bhp re-mapped to 204.

    but why?? Its not an 'RS' or even a 'S'.... Its a tdi with a bodykit...

    I'm not knocking it, I think it looks great, but I totally understand why the RS3 guys get so upset...

    Apparently the Rs3's run spacers on the front, mine doesn't have these but will come in time along with coilovers. Managed to pick up another plate, and before someone says... I know the black/silver plates are illegal for the year of car and I will be getting my lower spoiler grove painted black ;-)

    I'd prefer an RS3 with a TDi bodykit LOL. No worries about parking it then when I'm staying in some dodgy areas on business!

    I would have gone with the black grill and all the chrome bits black, spending 4k would have opted for other alloys as well,would have left the RS badging off as well to keep people guessing. Thats what i like about debadged a3's they look like just another ordinary a3 is at deisel ? tfsi who knows people pay it no heed. The RS & S you know straight away what they are. kudos for using OEM parts aftermarket would have been a bad idea

    Fair play to you mate, looks good. Each to their own.. if you want to make a RS3 replica, why not! It's your car do what you want
    PS: personally I would de-badge it.. think that might be taking it a bit to far though lol!

    Hi guys. Newbie here. I am in the market for an S3 sportback. I have seen this Audi S3 with RS3 conversion. Looks good, but what do I need to be aware off? Also do I tell the insurance company?
