    Yes it was Perth Audi any dealer can supply tho, they call the s3 part lower spoiler I called it a valance and as for the rs3 part just give them a reg of a rs3 and there is only one diffuser which comes gloss black , I looked at replicas and moulds but the original Audi ones all the holes and clips are perfect was doubtful for copies

    nah its pretty easy to do i just jacked it up and popped off the rear wheels took off the inner arch liner and had access to the screws that release the bottom lip there is only one screw each side that is a bugger to get to so had to pop the rear bumper a bit bit that just pulls away from the rear quarter panel, thought i was going to have to take the rear bumper off but didn't need to, i did it all by myself in an hour and i work in an office so that should explain the hardness level.

    I heard it's not a straight fit for 3 door cars, some mods have to be done to make it fit.

    Yup no mods needed, it clips off easy, I found it easier once I had uncliped the actual bumper from the rear arch I thought I'm going to need to remove the rear lights but didn't need to unclip the bumper that far up it's really just the sides at the rear arch, and as stated there's a screw each side behind the wheel liner that holds the spliter to the bumper it's a bummer to get to but with the arch unclipped you can slip your hand down to it, yiy can see it when you stick your head under the car but it's impossible to unscrew it from underneath as the screw faces down you will see what I mean

    That's not an S3 lower rear valance they have sold you mate it's an RS3 one.

    The S3 lower valance section needs a lot cut away from it to allow the RS3 rear diffuser to fit properly, I know as I fitted one to my S3 Sportback.

    I'm also almost certain the RS3 diffuser only fits a Sportback S3 rear lower valance (with the modification I mentioned above) or an RS3 valance like you have, but not sure either of these fit a 3 door, the bumpers are a different shape.

    Could be wrong but would suggest 100% clarification for 3 door people before going shelling out £300 on bits.

    There is only one valance I bought it and cut it and fitted it all myself without the use of a bodyshop was one long cut that was all just to remove the center section

    I'm about 99.897654% sure there's a proper RS3 lower valance that fits the RS3 rear diffuser properly without cutting, I'm sure I came across it in etka when I was looking before fitting mine.

    I never realised you had cut yours, fair enough, easier off the car I bet :)

    My strip is painted the proper matt alu paint the RS3 alu styling pack bits come in.

    Don't think there is the I gave the dealer a rs3 reg and the valance associated to the rs3 is the same as the s3 they cut the rs3 valance at the factory, my mate had his off his rs3 when he damaged it and you can see it's roughly cut
