    Bodykit

    Hi Everyone,

    I am a complete newbie and wanted some advice. I have recently purchased a 2004 A3 3.2Q and am loving every minute driving it which is standard other than the Bose upgrade and what I want to do is add a very discrete body kit to beef it up a little. Does anyone have any tips of what I should get and as I live in South West London anywhere reliable to fit it.

    Your tips will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Where can I get the parts to make it like an s-line?

    I am thinking about other mods, but have no idea where to start. I am a complete novice as I am sure you have gathered.

    What sort of money am I looking at with Audi?

    I am going to change the steering wheel to MFSW and will get the RNS-E to sort out interior.

    I was thinking about a Miltek exhaust, as I saw an A3 the other day with it and it makes a sweet sound. Other than that I haven't given it much thought.

    Have you got any tips?

    Probably quite a bit, be best to try get used parts try ebay?
    MFSW sure a member on here can probably try sort one out for you if not ebay also get the rns-e off ebay, facelift rear lights for you car. And agree on the miltek exhaust will sound good. What about upgrading the alloys? Or do you like the alloys you have now?



    EDIT: What would you be changing? Just side skirts? Spoiler? Or back and front bumper?

    Yes I will check ebay. I like the alloys I have now, but they may change once fit the bodykit. All I want to fit to the car is the front and rear spoilers and side skirts. I like the fact that the car is discrete and want to keep it that way just with some minor tweaks. I know the exhaust will make the car not so discrete but it makes the car sound too sweet.

    I contacted Hazzy Dayz about the MFSW and RNS-E, I am guessing I could get it done cheaper. But from what I have been told is that the guy is very reliable.

    Thanks a lot Ashley, thats pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Yes you are right probably will get a discount for both. Can only try I guess.

    I am guessing thats your car in the signature..thats pretty much where I want to get mine looking like. But mine is pre-facelift so have the dual grill. Might have to look into getting that sorted at some point too.

    Thanks again

    Hazzy Days are good value to fit the RNS-E, but don't get them to source it. You can pick one up comfortably on eBay for 500, or there's one on the classifieds on here for even less.

    Hi mate

    Im not one for look-a-liking and stuff so how about the votex stuff?

    I have a set waiting to be fitted on mine and it will look like this?




    i think it looks awesome but they're very hard to source.... took me 6 months to find mine...

    Quite a lot of the 3.2Q models come with this kit as a factory kit.



    You can get the S-Line bumper which you have to cut the front beam a bit, new bumper, grill, fogs, fog grill and a bonnet and rear bumper and rear s-line skirt.

    It is the same with the S3 stuff but you need a S3 front bumper and S3 rear valnce as opposed to the s line stuff but you will also need the sideskirts and sills...
    Audi A3 S-Line DSG - sold
    Golf Mk4 Autograph - sold
    Currently Vtec'in around in an Accord Type R :P

    For Sale: ST3 Remap Console - PM Me :P
    Vagcom'd too

    Not keen on votex front lip at all, sides are ok but not as refined lines as the s3 skirts, but if it floats your boat then why not.

    & Paul I'll ask him cost to do that for you.

    I've got the Votex kit on my 3.2. I'm not a huge fan of the kit on some colours - I dismissed 2 silver cars because they had the kit, but I really like it on mine in black.

    I'm not a huge fan of putting S3 kits on lesser models - I can understand changing mirrors, grill etc. to those of a different model, but fitting the whole kit almost looks a bit like you're trying to be something you're not. 316's with M3 kits are a good example of this!

    I hear what you are saying Pete, but my car is looking a little too plain so want to beef it up a little, not too much though and not to the point I want it to look like something its not. I like the votex kit, but they are not the easiest of finds and aftermarket kits are not my thing either.

    Yea I'm lookin at the kit for mine too but as you say, they are hard to get hold of and the aftemarket ones look to boy racer. Whereas the votex looks subtle and sit the a3
