    Well the wings will be different around the headlight as the headlights fit in differently, also remember the S3 wings are wider.

    Different fitment mate, S3 wings need S3 sideskirts to line it all up for a start.

    That proper sucks I prefer the looks of the s3 ones lol. I mean I have an s3 engine, s3 slam panel,s3 bonnet, (got an a3 one off a p reg but didnt seem to fit) and a bumper off p reg . If I got side skirts would they fit then?
    Or failing that will the wings off a 1.6 fit?

    Need some help off u guys please, found some wings off an a3 in mint condition and rhe same colour as my car, only difference is I have a facelift model amd his is an s reg oh and the indicators are square where as mine are oblong. He said hes got one piece headlights like me but dont want to be conned. Will they fit? I mean if u buy new wings they say one wind fits a 96-2001 but I thought they were different around the headlight edges.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated as im heading his way tomorro.
