    So I guess I should be able to do the same with the other diffusers lip ?

    is this also like your diffuser or the other one , can't tell

    I might just get the diffuser and paint it gloss black with a silver trim , what do you think

    It's odd that the lower rear valance you pictured in primer has all the vanes as per the RS3 rear diffuser and all in the correct places too where the S3 lower diffuser does not have these vanes on it?

    Strange, cant remember what mine looked like before cutting it to bits lol it was dark and I was desperate to get it on lol

    Looks like a beauty :) can't wait to get mine now , but still stuck on which diffuser to get TBH.

    I can still paint the other diffuser on gloss black and silver trim ?

    What are you lowered on ?

    I'm not lowered yet.... RS3 19's on it though. Eibach pro-kit springs for the front waiting to go on to match the rear which I think is perfect as is.

    It's £50 cheaper from the dealer for the gloss back they don't supply them from factory painted so would charge to have painted at the bodyshop but you could order it and just run silver vinyl over the lip for £4

    Not far from me at all , il send him a PM but il found out from audi if it's cheaper and if also painted

    So I guess the valance is cheaper ? @ £94

    The ride height does look good and eibachs are the best TBH

    So just checking, but I wouldn't be able to use my 2005 S Line bumper for this hey? I dont think I saw a way to remove the bottom half, last time I had the bumper off.

    Thanks mate , will show the Bodyshop what to do :)

    I really like both diffusers but just what goes to ur taste really

    The one from audi comes in grey and not black

    I might as well get the diffuser off eBay and get the balance from audi which will cost me £200 abouts

    What do you think

    The grey one you are getting is not the same as in my pic, sounds like you have ordered the standard s3 one ... If that's the case no cutting is required

    My prices are different the Diffuser(platinum grey) was coming in at £135 plus vat and the lower spoiler was roughly the same as you quoted. let me know if you still get the prices you were quoted as may shop there lol.

    Do you know what the other part number maybe for the diffuser

    I went to an audi dealer and the guy was a absolute douche ... No words to describe customer service , he just was not willing to help at all ,

    so il be going to another audi dealer , spoken to him and sounds decent

    and hope fully he can show me some schematics etc and confirm part numbers as some have changed as above
