I was struggling to find side skirts I liked for a long time. I've got a base A3 and slowly modded it to look and feel better. On an exterior, I replaced the halogen headlights with the bi-xenons, the SE front bumper with the S-line one, fitted a RS3-look rear diffuser and a honeycomb grille and a S/S-line roof spoiler. Don't forget about the chrome wing mirror caps and window tints. But the sides needed something I couldn't figure out what. I dislike Votex side skirts due to the stupid looking jack stand spots and the fact that they don't actually add too much to the look. I like the S3 side skirts together with the S3 front and rear bumper, but without the bumpers they look out of place for me. Osir or SRS-Tec? No, not sure. I always liked the A4 B8 bade style side skirts / stone guards, but they aren't available for the A3 8P. I also liked the MK6 Jetta GLI style side skirts. They aren't bulky and they don't change the car side profile at the front and rear fender. They add a little curved look to the rocker panel yet they don't stick into the eye. So I decided to try and fit a replica of the MK6 Jetta GLI side skirt to my A3. I bought them on ebay (abs or PP, not fiberglass). They fitted good at the front but they were too long and I had to cut, file and bend them a little at the back in order to follow the curve of the A3 rocker panel. I didn't try to install them yet because I was unable to use the MK6 fitting points. I just used masking tape to fit them temporary and see how it would look.. and now I'm unsure. Do they look good on my car? I was going to paint/plastidip or wrap them in gloss black to match the rear diffuser and front grille before the final installation, but I have some doubts. If I drilled the holes and put some windshield glue on the rocker panel, it would be a kind of point of no-return and there wouldn't be an easy and cheap way back. What do you think? Do they look out of place? There are a few pictures taken from different angles below. Imagine if there was not any masking tape and the side skirt was gloss black.
