    Hi there,
    First of all im new and if this is in the wrong section or there are similar threads on this subject please point me in the right direction.
    I have recently purchased my first A3, its a black 2005 2.0 FSI and im in love. However im looking to do a few aesthetic mods to car, only cheapish little things that will still have an impact, Im not talking alloys or coilovers yet as they are a little beyond my budget for a few months atleast. I just wanted opinions on s line spoilers, whether they can be fitted with very little experience, how much spraying/colour matching is in local body shops and what kind of price range im looking for for all of this. Also S3 side skirts, i hear these have to be trimmed to be fitted and obviously whether it would be worth trying to do this myself or getting t done in a proper workshop. Also im running the 17 inch sport alloys and i'd like to run these wth some spacers i was thinks 12mm front and 15mm on back, just worried what this is going to look like without the car being lowered? Im aware im being a little vague but any help would be appreciated. If anyone has any pictures of cars with these mods plese post them.

    Wheels and coilovers will do a lot more for that car than a s-line spoiler and skirts will!

    S-line spoiler will cost you around £250 (£100 for the spoiler, £150 sprayed and fitted)
    S3 skirts will cost around 1k

    Put the same amount of money into suspension and wheels and you'll have a good looking car!
