    Hey guys

    So I was thinking the other day that the S3 just needs something on the front end, just to finish it off, a very discreet front splitter would do the job I thought..

    So I had a word with the carbon technician from the team I race for, we are going to get something fabricated on my car, the splitter will be 100% carbon and will fit to the underside of the S3 front bumper (pre-facelift)

    So basically im after a list of potentially interested parties, the cost is estimated at £300 per piece, the development costs will be expensive part so if we could confirm a initial run of 5 pieces then it should be viable..

    Sorry that I cant offer any more info, at the moment its in the very early stages but if it comes off then splitters would be available as a kit etc etc..

    Im thinking that it would look something like this..

    Gives you an idea of what im thinking anyways..

    So anyone who would be interested let me know and we can try and move things forward

    Jonny:)

    Surely your MS paint skills can summon up a realistic representation Leon?

    Quite like the bonnet grills, would these work well with one of the cone type filters??

    I was considering doing something similar, with a Naca duct on the bonnet feeding cool fresh air directly to the intake filter.. A mesh above the filter would not really do much, unless the air flow is sitting at that exact point on the bonnet..
