    Hi, if you do a search on the mudflaps you will find previous discussions. In summary, the A3 back ones 'fit' both the front and rear of the S3, although you will need to make some brackets for the top of the front mudflaps to avoid drilling into the wing. I've been running a set for 3 years no problems. Brackets can be made from some 25mm U channel from B&Q - cut into a 25mm piece, drill a hole, tap it (to cut a screw thread), fit a bolt into the tapped hole and you end up with what is like a small G clamp. Put back of clamp behind front wing lip, front of clamp in front of mudflap, tighten the screw and the mudflap is held against the wing. Easy.

    As jcs356 said, very straightforward to do. Only did the rears on the S3 and the 'A3' Front Flaps fitted beautifully. Clean them with Megs Degreaser and APC and they shine up well.

    However on the notion that they do what they are supposed to do is....******.
