    hi guys and thanks for the welcome.... cupra splitter takes around 30 mins to fit with a mate helping.

    best both of you hold it in place and then tape it on first to check its all sqaure. bits of the splitter will need trimmed

    one you are happy its all sqaure, you can bond it or screw it in place.

    and yeah i ordered mine form seat in carlisle and got it for 17 quid

    use the the 2 spar's on the splitter as the off set the 2 on the audi's bumper.... and where the bumper raise's up, the splitter should be nearly the same.

    will post a picture when i get home from work with some details.... that way it should make sense

    Re the fogs - you'll need the lights themselves, grilles and wiring loom - I'll check the part numbers later - although kufatec do the whole kit http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p1302_Retrofit-kit-fog-lights---Audi-A3-8P.html

    You'll also need a new light switch with support for front fogs.

    You'll need to check the part number of your central electrics module - it may not support fogs in its current state - you need a highline module and often the non-fog A3s are fitted with the lesser module

    Not as simple as it sounds - as I learnt from bitter experience...

    well have gave up on the fog light idea, wheels are now sorted and no horriable wobble.

    are any of you guys selling a set of lowering springs for a 2006 a3 2.0tdi?

    got myself an audi ipod kit and is stumped at how the hell to fit the thing lol.
    should have my spolier and mudflaps fitted by jan

    Welcome to the forum Chris

    A nice start, worth getting some coilovers rather than some slightly lower Audi OEM springs in my opinion
