    They are 8 x 19's and 225/35/19 tyres.
    If you do a search there was a posting regarding these a couple of months back.

    cheers

    Do you have a side profile pic of your car? Would like to know how low the S3 Bumper is, and what kind of side skirt would even it out. And still waiting for the size of grills, if you get a chance to measure them.

    Thanks!

    Nice, can't wait to see the new pics. I'm probably going with the votex side skirts to match up the S3 Bumper.

    looks REALLY well that. Ignore the ppl who dont agree with putting S3 parts on - you simply want your car to look better than it allready is/was. Nowt wrong with that.

    I don't think anybody is saying the car is not nice, or that it is wrong to fit the S3 parts. The concerns were that those in the know would know that it was not an S3, and that the perception would be that the owner did not know there was not an S3 sportback. (Even though, in this case, he is aware of it)

    That being said, it is still a lovely car.

    Nice! I was looking at that auction as well, but too bad it's UK only. Gratz on winning them. While I can't confirm what skirts they are from the pic, are they the votex side skirts? If so, please put them on ASAP :whip: .

    I'm seriously considering those skirts as well, would love to see how they look with your bumper.

    That car looks great!

    But you really must lose the S3 Badge on the front grill as it reminds me of a 318i with a M badge stuck on...

    Any update Millduu? A lot of us from votex are waiting to see how the votex side skirts look with the bumper. Do you think it will be low enough to balance out the bumper?

    I made a poll to see what skirts I should go with. Few free to comment:

    They are much lower than the S3 Bumpers.

    even so - they are a much nicer choice than the others you have proposed

    cant be much lower - if its dramtically noticeable - why not modify the front s3 bumper with a seat cupra front spoiler? would go well with the lines of the front bumper!

    Here's a pic of a modified Rieger kit that is 2cm higher:

    So yeah, it's quite a bit lower. And since I live in Canada, Seat parts would be a pain to get. Not to mention all the snow shoveling I would be doing in the winter with a lowered S3 bumper. :)

    Just got the skirts back from the bodyshop today,they said best to leave them for a few days to thoroughly harden.This is because the skirts are glued to the car and have to be taped on for 24hrs-so's not to leave any impressions.
    So will have some pics by the end of next week.
