    Where do you think the people on ebay are getting them from and making money? ;)

    Cupra R splitters have now reached legendary status on VAG forums because they seem to look good on all sorts of cars. My fave though has to be the Fabia VRS, they look factory on one of them!

    I'm'a liking it!

    Easy fitting? Drilling\fasteners\Clips\'No More Nails' (actually forget the last one!!)... or a combination of the lot?

    A couple of pilot holes and some self tappers should do the job just fine.

    :unsure: Cheers but drilling holes on an S3 SB that I haven't even got yet scares me a bit. Not the 'driller killer' sort of scare but incase I got the wholes wrong and make swiss cheese out of the underneath of the front bumper.... I will look around the forum on how folks have done them.

    Thanks again.

    All depends on your commitment to fitting the splitter. Nothing wrong with drilling holes underneath out of sight. Matt mentioned above about getting the screwdriver out so I assume he did the same.

    By the way one of Matt's mates had his A3 there with an S3 bumper and the same splitter fitted and it looked the same in the flesh. Not bad looking but just sort of out of place. For me the main reason is because of the flat bit in the middle under the flat bit from the bumper.
