    Well I'll be on here more than usual as I've just traded my Astra Turbo for an Audi A3 1.8T
    Needed to downgrade as the Astra was costing me WAY too much to run..
    Anyway, the Audi is one of the best built cars I have ever driven, very cosey and there is a lot of poke in high gears! (It has been remapped to 200bhp-ish)
    All I'm going to do with it really is give it the S3 look, S3 spoiler, door flare thingys and bumpers. It already has S3 wheels and is lowered.

    Anyway, looking forward to being on here more often! :o.k:

    Here's my old Astra..

    Congrats mate, you have to get some pics of the A3 up now, will be good to see a build thread on this as you progress the car.

    You will have to come to some of the local meets with us now mate :)

    FYI, S3 sideskirts are not a straight bold on to A3 doors I think, though I stand to be corrected. And they are not cheap neither from the dealers, and I've never seen any for sale used!

    Definately will. Thanks!



    As for finding skirts. It's very very hard. Might just colour code the sides (Not the rubber bit LOL)

    You can actually color code the rubber bit... As long as the right paint is used, its fine and remains flexible. mine were done about 4 or 5 years ago and are still fine.
