    skirts arent a must, ive got s3 front and rear bumpers on mine and it looks good, it wont look high with 18's it will look alright - even better with 30mm lowering springs, dont bother getting s3 springs you'll be wasting your money

    o right wicked, i dont wanna ruin the car i love it so i thought a nice s3 kit leave the 1.8t badges on though, will 18s just have the same arch clearance it has now also what size tyres should i run, and how come id be wasting money will a descent set of springs do the job or do i need the full shebang

    because s3 springs wont fit as its fwd anyway, just get some a3 lowering springs and you'll be sorted mate!
