    S3 Side Skirts on a Sline - Easy Swap

    Hi Guys,

    Seen some S3 Side Skirts which seem a reasonable price (£150) with end caps.

    Do these just go straight on a sline without the need for new sills etc?

    Cheers

    James

    You need door bottoms and sills, the S-line ones stand to proud. Are they OEM as £150 seems very very cheap!

    £150 for some thats coming off a s3 thats being broken. Got my spoiler off the same car which I've been after for ages!

    How much are the bottoms and the sills roughly, do you know?

    Cheers lol. £420 is a lot of money even if it does look good!

    The side skirts have sold already (within a matter of hours).

    It was for a 3dr but I'd still like to know the prices of the extras just so I know for future

    I changed mine two weeks ago and didn't want to buy the S3 door sills for two reasons.Firstly they cost about £250 for all four doors (sportback) and secondly they have S3 written on them what is not ideal for me as i have an A3. The main issue that arises with using the current sills is that they were glued down at the factory so it is easy to bend them when you take them off,i used a heatgun and slowly tried removing them and managed to get them off without causing any damage.The S3 Sills are thinner as the skirt sits below them so you need to trim them down slightly so there is enough clearance for the door to close.







    I think it's well worth the money you save to modify the current sills . One thing you need to buy is the door blades as the A3 ones curve in at the bottom as opposed to the S3 ones what are flush with the skirt,I think they were about 47.50 for three and for some odd reason the blade from the drivers door was £67 .They are easy to replace u just remove two screws and they slide right off.

    Arjuanamo - Thanks for the reply and the pics! Very useful.

    Digzz - The guy offered the door trims, sills and skirts for £220 delivered - just wish someone else hadn't spotted them now. The guy was checking the items in storage for me first just to double check everything was present and I'd have probably got them

    Ive got part numbers but these are for a sport back so am not sure how useful they will be.This is excluding the Door sills obviously.

    Hi guys - finally got my skirts ready to put on.

    Two things (bear in mind I have a 3 door)

    I only got sent two door blades, is this right?

    Do I need any fittings to secure the skirts?
