    That looks horrendous!

    Only bumpers to be put on A3 are S-line, S3 or at a push RS3. Personally if your car was a SE then I would S-Line it only.

    Nope nope nope. A guy did this to his car and we spent days laughing at it. Each to their own, but it looks ****. It looks like a toddler drew an RS3 and they used that as a guide.

    Horrid.

    My thoughts are, the "RS3" bumper looks disgraceful and the rest of the kit is pretty shocking too. As said above, someone else did this kit and it really generated a lot of laughs. The other aftermarket panels wont give a good result in terms of fit and finish. Stick to the bits that Audi made,they did a good job.
    I like that style of wheel but not sure about that plaque on the rim.
    But, its your money and your car, just my opinions.

    Edit to the above....I've just seen the rear of the RS3 kit on that ebay page and the rest of the kit is even WORSE! What a mess, steer well clear.
