    ok guys as you can tell im a noob and yes ive posted some reply etc but ive had my beast almost a year and im still living the dream. one of the main reasons i bought the RS3 was i saw the audi sport concept way back the one with the LED air brake and wow what a good looking car.
    ive been a fan of the rear active spoiler for a while, my first audi 3.2TT then i grew up when i had my R8... so now im wondering is it possible to retro fit something on the new 2017 saloon?
    can't see anything and yes before i get more complaints or gripes i love the styling now but how cool would it be to have the magic tail rise and fall !!!! :)

    good or bad id like to hear opinions or if people have considered it or even attempted

    I don’t think it would suit the nature or style of the car and probably wouldn’t add any functionality.

    thank you for that... the reason i fell in love with the saloon is that car lol
    that being said im not going for the air brake look with lights but in going to fit a A7 active spoiler. ive got the parts so i will post pics as the project evolves..

    will do.. ive got the bits just have to get my superglue and masking tape :)

    does anyone know if active spoiler control is embedded into the system or different for each model if you get what i mean.?

    ill be starting next week with a mock up etc. going to take a while to size and get the angles right.

    I love it when people try and do things like this. I also think the clubsport concept with this spoiler looked great. Good luck. Keep us updated with how you get on! :)

    I think that vid is about 4 years old, it’s a shame they didn’t implement the fatter rear end on the rs3

    Audi fitted an active spoiler to the 2009 RS3 sports-back prototype.
    Didn't have the best look.
