    Hi would anyone know if the Audi S3 Sideskirts would fit an A3 ok? the skirts came off a 2001 S3 and my car is a 1999 A3 would they just fit straight on ot what would i need to do for them to fit?

    I think have already got audi sideskirts but i need to know if these are different and would fit ok, does the A3 come with sideskirts? reason being is i am getting my front and rear bumper sprayed again and i thought i might aswell get the skirts done aswell....but i dont want to spray them if i can fit S3 ones...if thats the case i will fir them and get them done.

    so any help on this at all would be brilliant.

    Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    The A3 doesn't come with side skirts and to fit the S3 ones to the A3 you'd also need the black part at the bottom of the door as it's a different shape and size on the S3. I'm unsure weather they'd line up correct as the wings and rear 1/4's on S3's are also different. Sorry i culdn't be more help bud!

    oops sorry mate, that was meant to say WERENT any mods needed hehe.

    if any of you seem to be in birmingham at any time gimme a shout on here and ill be happy to show you, but by puttin the s3 front bumper skirts, rear bumper on my 1.8T, it now looks a lot wider than normal 1.8T

    the arches on my car are original and havent been modified, so as far as ur question asks, id imagine you could just steal the stuff of an S3 and get it fitted.

    hope im right about this, my car might have been a one off, but trial and error mate.
