    it'll probably be easier to list the parts that aren't expensive:

    floor mats are about £40 for a set
    '09 rear lights are about £165 for the 3dr which considering you get all the bulbs with them isn't bad

    erm... i think that's it.

    S3 specific parts are usually horrific, they do this to stop us all cheaply making S3 replicas and therefore devaluing the real thing!

    mirrors are a good example at £800 a pair! Bucket seats are £5000

    Also stupid are the brushed alloy trims for the doors, these are £70 each for the rears and £130 each for the fronts, crazy!

    The short answer to your post is 'all of them '

    Quality cars do not go in for cheap spares !!

    I priced up a replacement S-Line 18" (RS6 style) wheel and Audi wanted £489 +vat each. Stupid thing is they sell the accessory wheels at half that?!
