    As title really? Are s3 wings any wider than standard a3 wings? Will they fit with standard bumper?

    Cheers

    The S3 bumper will fit on standard A3 wings though IIRC, but not the other way around

    Funny enough I've been asking around about this for ages... I was told the S3 bumpers will fit but not snug
    Because the arches are bigger than the normal a3

    Is this true?

    I've been searching about this today and thought these wing part numbers might be useful for someone with the same question:

    8L0821105 - A3 L/H
    8L0821106 - A3 R/H

    8L9821105 - S3 L/H
    8L9821106 - S3 R/H

    2001 >
    8L9821105B - A3 L/H
    8L9821106B - A3 R/H

    8L9821105A - S3 L/H
    8L9821106A - S3 R/H

    Not tried the front but I no the back is not a perfect fit. Doesn't sit flush with the arch even with the s3 guide rails they don't fit.it's not miles of I'd say half inch. Also u need to reroute you're exhaust as the s3 sits more over to the right.

    Much much wider. S3 has flared arches front and back.

    I'm seeing so much ambiguous information regarding whether A3 and S3 wings on the 8p3 are actually different. Some say they are different and others say they are exactly the same. Can anyone shed light on this?
