    8L7853579 = covering / side member extension LEFT rear / S3
    8L7853580 = covering / side member extension RIGHT rear / S3

    What are people doing about the rear arches?

    Im almost an S3 replica, but the rear arches are frankly inferior to my new S3 wings..

    rears are not doable unless you can get genuine ones and cut and weld not worth the £££ if you ask me

    Hi

    Does your A3 have the two split grilles? If so your gonna need a new bonnet 2006+, S3 bumper, S3 Grille (you got) S3 fog light surrounds and S3 foglights also you will need to trim the crash bar aswell. Or the bumper wont fit.
    If you already have the single grille front end you will need to glue the S3 grille into place as its shorter than the A3 grilles so wont be secure. And welcome to the forum:happy:

    I have just fitted an S3 rear bumper to my a3 tdi, was fairly straight forward, but it doesn't quite line up right, im guessing I need to buy the S3 rails and re fit the bumper on to the S3 rails?

    I also got a s3 tailgate with spoiler and the facelift rear lights, all in the same colour as my A3! One slight problem the tailgate is from a facelift and mine is pre facelift, the electrics for the central locking and lock barrel seem different so I wont be able to swap my lock over!? Has anyone done this successfully ?

    Cheers

    I just acquired a Rieger front bumper off an S3 (for my A3) and am wondering the same thing... Do I need the guide rails for my 8L1 or no?
