    Like this...

    Has anyone fitted them on thier S3 as i'd love to see what they look like fitted?

    They're big with the Scooby/Evo owners but i can't seem to find any specific ones for the S3 :ermm:

    I just want a plain matte black so if anyone has any pics/links it would be very much appreciated :thumbsup:

    the reason you cant find any for an s3 is cos its not a scooby or evo
    you can buy the flaps and cut them to size
    not something id ever do to a audi

    Any motor factors will sell them to you.

    Motorworld or halfords they both do them.


    Even a A3 rally car does not have them.

    If you want to put mudflaps on it then the best compromise is probably getting two sets of rear flaps from an 8L A3 and fitting those front and rear. They'll need a bit of trimming to though IIRC.

    I nearly did this on mine to reduce the amount of stonechipping on the sides from running front spacers, but when I offered them up to the car I just couldn't do it...

    Jheez i'm not looking for a debate or any opinions.

    I couldn't care less what anyone thinks because everyone has different tastes so unless you can actually help me out on what i'm actually asking i don't see the relevance in your posts?

    Anyway, my car get's caked in tyre shine gel, mud, stone chips ect and since i'm having a repaint at Audi soon i don't fancy ruining the fresh paint.

    The standard flaps look too small so i'm after some plain matt black rally style PVC ones so that they will be a bit larger.

    Do you really think you would notice them that much ffs?

    Are you asking for an opinion now then? Yes, it'll be mega noticeable and stupid looking.

    All this talk of flaps and not a single reference to a lady-garden. Poor show.

    Just had a quick look on ebay for you Mate and there are loads, all colours, there are even some listed under Audi s3 although I think they are universal fit with either Audi or four rings on them, hope this helps.

    Not such a silly idea at all, I have been thinking the same, my car has spacers fitted front and rear and kicks up a lot of spray now which quickly covers the rear screen, leaving the rear wiper on is annoying and popping it on and off is also annoying so flaps could help.

    I was thinking of putting rally style mud flaps on my A3 but all i can find are one's with Quattro or TT printed on them.
    Gone slightly off the idea now so might just leave the stock sized ones on.
