    You can get metal ones now which are much better as they act like a sump guard. They are $250 so its worth seeing how much the plastic audi one is and comparing.

    Why bother, it offers no protection anyway and no doubt audi will ask about £80 for a bit of plastic -

    I've not had one for over a year now lol

    Its about £24 from audi , but that is only the small one , the S3 i believe has one that covers virtually all the bottom of the engine , that was a crazy:wtf: price when i enquired.Not all dealer parts are expensive you know, never be affraid to ask them :scared2: , sometimes you will be surprised :thumbsup:

    It actually does offer protection from excess road water up into the engine bay and it helps direct air through the radiator rather than up past the sump.

    There ya go!
