    Audi themselves but you will pay handsomely for them - circa £325

    Keep an eye on ebay - thats where I got mine from and they cost me £200 but they can be purchased cheaper

    I havent seen a set online in a while but be carefull when you do find a set and make sure they are for a 3 door or 5 door

    Failing that, look into getting S3 side skirts or aftermarket ones by Oettinger or Reiger

    s3 side skirts? will they work with the bumpers of the sline? the votex ones look great because they compliment the sline bodykit.

    I got my VOTEX skirts from a VW show for £80 and then it was £120 to have them sprayed and i fitted them myself.

    I have contacted vagparts about these and they can do them for just over £300 delivered, maybe if a few people wanted a set we could get them down a bit?

    Look at the bottom of each door

    On either side you will see two strips of colour coded plastic

    These are to be removed by simply pulling them off (with a bit of force)

    The skirts are supplied with two brackets each which need to be screwed on after spraying - these act as spacers between the car body and skirt

    there are clear stickers with the pack to cover holes that are in the body work

    you are also supplied with a paint cleaner for the adhesive which you should wipe around the skirt area on the car

    Apply bonder (supplied or bought) to the edges of the skirt as well as take the sticker covers off the skirt to be ready for applying them to the car

    once on the car, with help from another, use a lot of masking tape to hold them onto the car and let it sit for as long as you can

    thats it really
