    Hello all, as the title reads, has anyone done or seen this? Possibly even with a s3 rear bumper? I'm curious as I have a 3 door but would like the convenience and practicality of a 5 door with the S3 looks. Wondering what it looks like and if it can be done? Any pics anyone?

    The s3 has wider arches, so it needs to be heated and sort of twisted to make it line up with the narrower a3 shell. If you had it there, you'd see what i meant, I cant find the pics from when we did hers
