    Welcome to the site mate - nice colour.

    Not going to say what you should do to your car as its each to their own but you will pick up so many ideas from this site alone - just have a look around.

    All the best

    Chris :)

    You just need to trim the vertical "fins" down so the lip sits flush, then just a few self tappers! It makes the car look so much more aggressive, and even better, there about £20 from the SEAT dealers!

    Have a search and you 'll find plenty of pics!

    Ive just had a look in here for some pics and think they look quite tasty, this lads was on a vortex bumper though but i still like the look. Ive emailled my local Seat dealer so should have a reply by tomoroo.

    If you like the votex, Audi UK still have them in stock, or at least they did 6months ago! There not cheap, but deff the best look IMO, even if the back skirt is a little "my first body kit" esq.

    Haha £20 for the Seat splitter?! Bought mine 2 months ago, £42 :)
    They've gone up stupidly high over the past few years due to demand, I paid £18 for my first one.

    Holy ****! £42!!!!!!!!!!! That's scandalous!
    If that's the case, I'll go and see how much I can get Them for with my staff discount (my company owns a franchise) and if nits a lot less, see if there's any interest in a group buy!

    Apologies if I'm breaking house rules - I've got an lcr splitter just sitting in the garage... I was going to fit it to my 3.2 when I did the S-line conversion but never got round to it - its never been used. I dont have any plans to fit it to the S3 as I think it may look a bit odd... PM me if interested.
