    Hi Guys,

    I have a new 170 Tdi Black Edition on order for delivery late April and would like to add OEM S3 side skirts to the car. Does anyone know of a company (other than Audi) that would sell these?

    Is it just a case of buying the skirts, painting them and fitting to the sills? Or is there more work involved like changing lower door skins? Mine is a company car so I might be limited to what I can do.

    It needs new door bottoms, sills removed & all the sticky residue removed aswell or the skirts/sills wont sit flush as they should, plus the small side trims removed where the skirts fix to the side of the car, also underneath you should seal up any gaps/holes where the seals fit against the underside or it will allow road **** to collect & start to rot the bodywork, the S3 has the threaded bolts welded on chassis already underneath to screw skirts too, non S3's dont have these so skiaflex or the like has to be used.

    I have fitted some 3dr skirts recently & literally took several kilo's of ballast each side of road **** that has become trapped behind the front wheels in a small cavity as such, used an airline to remove it all, but I was astounded by how much had collected in that area, which also led to paint lifting under the existing trims.

    Thanks for the explanation. It sounds like a lot of work doesn't sound reversable. I have to undo everything when changing to another co car.

    I doubt they'd even notice mate, so dont even worry about that, it would be oem anyway.
