    i need to find out what the plastic protector thing that sits in under the wings are called
    i thought they were called splash guards but cant find them on ebay? does anyone know the proper name
    for them?

    and also the full front guard thing that holds the radiators in place, its like a big plastic protector thing too?

    i thought the car was going to blow up haha!

    The plastic protector things that sit under the wings are :-
    Wheel housing liner, plastic - part no. 8L0 821 171 C ( left )
    172 B ( right ) - £20 each approx

    The front guard thing I think you mean is :-
    Lock carrier with mounting for radiator and electric fan - part no. 8L0 805 594 C - £170 approx

    Suggest you try and source the radiators from a non-Audi source as they will be much cheaper !

    Hope this helps - cheers

    could be wrong,but im sure the part numbers should be 8P for your audi and 8L for the older shape a3.

    VW754 may be right if it's a 2004 model year. ETKA catalogue gave those numbers for 2003 model year which I (probably wrongly) assumed was the right year.
    I will check the 2004MY numbers if you need them.
