    i ripped one off in excitement and then realised its was wrong, so i have the better of the two still fitted but the bad one was taken by the local scrap rats, so its got a standard wing on the o/s currently. its also got the rears arches just starting to bubble thro, but they're still...

    I Want To Sell My MK1 S3 2001 (low mileage)

    to be fair, its a lottery as to what your gonna get. personally i would scan autotrader/ebay/gumtree etc etc looking for similar to yours [milage,history,owners etc etc] and i would set a reserve of what you actually want for it on ebay and see what offers you get. theres a few places in the...

    replacement wings.

    heres the before i poked pic :D all the **** on the floor is from behind the wheel liner, it was packed solid and had lovely green sprouts of life coming from it all. this stuff blocked up the drain routes and has helped rust kick in. if you haven't, or never thought about it, get your...

    replacement wings.

    so heres the not so clever one. until i poked it, it wasn't too bad :( not sure this ones repairable, the n/s ain't as bad but still bubbled at the bottom of the arch/sill. whilst i was down the unit i found a scrap of some carbon fibre vinyl wrap we used for a roof a while back and thought...

    replacement wings.

    replacement wings.

    Just wondered if anyone has bought or seen these fitted? https://offsetautohaus.com/products/audi-s3-8l-widened-wings-fenders-3cm-either-side i know they are a little wider but with the lack of wings on ebay/gumtree/s3 guy i'm wondering if it would be a smart move to get a pair of these and...

    the build mk2.

    Been down to the bodyshop my mate has and got 2 prices on repairing the paintwork on the grey one, to repair the wings [ cut out bad, rebuild up in fibre glass ] , repair the rear arches and to basically repaint the bottom half of the car he's quoted 500 give or take a few quid. the guy from...

    the build mk2.

    im pretty confident i could do the job myself. the wings imho aren't totally gone, a little sanding, rust inhibitor and paint up n polish and all good i reckon, maybe at most a little filler. rear arches are prob 5 cm on one side and 0.5 on the other, flat off, treat and repair, laquer n...

    the build mk2.

    so another weeks passed, got a call from the shop today saying the cranks cracked. i haven't seen it yet but i trust the guy. he's also said the pistons are no good and i would be better off getting new/upgraded ones [can post pics if anyones interested, but for the sake of the forum load i...
