    think its the width of the arches that'll be critical not the height of the side skirts? S3 has completly different front wings

    Nah the arches look fine, if you had the bottom of the door sills painted it would prob look ok, but you really want front and rear S3 bumpers and some sort of sideskirts on the car.

    Unfortunately most skirts for the a3 look like a dogs dinner.

    I had an S3 bumper on mine briefly, took it off as i didnt like the look.

    S3 rails are about £10 each and yeah the dealer will sell you them, i'd be surprised if you got an S3 bumper in good condition for £100 unless its missing all the grilles etc.

    Waiting for one in the right colour with the bits n bobs might be more worthwile, even if you're doubling the purchase price.
