    Hi guys, some of you may laugh at this but whats your views on moulding audi a4/a6 allroad arches to the rear of my Rs3 Replica? has anyone ever attempted this mod or not? im not sure of wheel arch dimensions regarding a3 to a4/a6 but it would in my opinion give the beefy rear end look which the RS3 deserves just like the RS4 etc.
    And before anyone goes off on one ive heard it all before on here regarding Rs3 Replicas lol..

    I don't mind to be honest I just want it looking the ******** and that's 1 thing the Rs3 are lacking is a beefy **** end, that red a3 in pic, does it have wider arches front and back? Can't quite make it out on my phone. Cheers

    forgive me if I'm wrong but wouldn't you need a wider arch to start off with? hence allroad arches

    It sounds like it could work if the work was done properly to it... You would really need to see if the arch from the allroad is even similar in size to the a3 otherwise it could just make it look weird and stretched out.
    never heard of anyone doing it but I can see where you are going with it.
    What about the rear bumper? Are you going to do anything with that as the lines need to match up

    Won't know what else needs doing until I have one to measure up, all lines would be moulded into match up perfectly if need be, maybe worth a try??

    You need a arch tenplate to work around and if the alroad arch isnt the same it wont work and will look bodged up so you need new wide arch templates making and then building shape ontop of the new templates that will give you the perfect look, also i think it would look amazing if you went through with the mod
