    Hi
    I am wanting to fit the side skirts off an S3 to my 2009 TDi sportback , I already have an RS3 rear bumper , i'm looking to order them from Audi but wondering if anyone has done it , and do they fit straight on ?
    Do they come in a kit with all the fixings , or do you have to order everything separately ?

    Has anyone else done it , or anyone offer any help

    Cheers Ian

    Yes very expensive! I paid £500 brand new for my 3 door. I believe the sportback is even more.

    Search for N8's build thread it will give you a good idea of whats involved with the sportback. Be warned it will inspire you to spend even more money though!

    We can offer supply/fit solution, location dependent, but parts wont be any cheaper I'm afraid as we buy from audi aswell.

    Bro I'm doing my s3 8p3 conversion and just the rear end parts has cost me over 900 quid, the front end will be somewhere between 1200 if u are luck up to 1500 (obviously used) parts only...

    But I think rs3 conversion is worth doing if the car is worth keep for another couple of years... Also without rs3 badges as if someone passes your diesel car could tell straight away whereas if you just go for the look then it's fine...

    I guess parts for rs3 conversion brand new from Audi or Nigel would easy cost over 2,500... Just parts

    Good luck with the conversion, have a look at my thread to get an idea of costs that involves but mostly hidden :) lol

    £900 that including painting and fitting too? I'm finding the dealer prices good actually cheaper than eBay was £97 for rear s3 lower bumper spoiler and £194 for rs3 diffuser side skirts are about £143 each then end caps and screws just over £10 a side I find the door blades and kick plates expensive for what they are tho

    I have bought a new RS3 rear bumper as I prefer the diffuser to the S3 one , bought it complete for £450 brand new unused , but it does need painting , going to fit the side skirts , I was going to keep my original front bumper as it didn't seem that much different to the S3 one , but I can see now they flare out to match the side skirt line so will get a front bumper as well now.
    I'd like to fit the RS3 front end but the availability and price of the parts , especially the carbon fibre front wing are too much
