    parts like that are very easy to do that to, i had a Facelift headlight TT headlight switch that i put on ebay, little did i know that they are top MOD for the A3/S3 8P and a bidding war started on the thing lol

    where as going into buy that from TPS would have been half the price

    Is that the standard S3 front splitter or not???

    Mine was damaged in the snow so I could do with a new one, I've resecured it for now but it's a little bit worse for wear so I need a replacement ideally.... going from the thread title I am guessing I can get one for much less elsewhere!!???

    If so, could you please let me know where?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    It's a Leon Cupra R splitter. You can buy it from a Seat dealer for around the £20 mark?

    Thanks for the info, it looks very similar to what is on mine at the moment..... is the Seat one a million miles away from the standard S3 one??? I imagine Audi are going to be considerably more exoensive if I march in there and ask for an S3 one from them.....

    I'm not sure what S3 splitter you're on about? Have you got a pic of it? That would help.
