    You see any threads id been using to find out parts etc guys were saying they modded the S-line ones to fit, so i didn't order the S3 ones but then when the skirts came i had serious doubts as it was clear the S3 ones would have to go over that part of the skirt and they were clearly not big enough, so kind of figured that i was gonna buy the S3 ones lol

    But thanks for clearing that up mate, i must get the part numbers sorted for those! Would there be any changes in the S3 sill plates or skirts for that matter from the 2006 - 2010? Just i know of one S3 sill plate from 2010 car going cheap

    ps - sorry for hijack friends lol

    Buy new as removal always distorts the alum insert given the double sided tape sticks like a weld & remove all traces of existing double sided tape from the car prior to fitment of new sills as it may not sit flush.

    This one is new, don't know how he came across it! So would it suit? Also thanks for the advice on removing the old ones, if i'm honest i will get the bodyshop to do it but clear instructions to fitting them will keep them right

    ive gone for the Volkswagen Racing kit, forged callipers, 2 part rotors & bells, should be pretty savage... if its good enough for a 500hp S3, should be good for my 345 one haha the big plus is that rather then the 24kg per side for the standard S3 set up, the VWR kit is 11kg per side, so when driving quickly, turn in should be a lot sharper
    haha thats what i said when i first got mine and joined this forum... 6ish months later... well u can see what ive done, worth every penny tho!
