For those that cant see it



Before condeming it I would be inclined to repair it, but (dont take offence) if you had the skills to repair it then it probably wouldnt have ended up looking like that in the first place.

thats not the best but i have seen worse just let a pro do it the next time you fancy making some body mods
had a mate who thought he could save himself a few quid by cutting the paint back himself instead of getting a pro to do it. he got the mop and cutting compund but didnt use any water when doing it!!
lets just say he uses professional bodyshops from now on!!

The S3 has substantially different fenders/arches on it.

A good body shop could get the S3 rear bumper to work.

Best thing is to either get a very good bodyshop to do some custom cutting, or look into a good tuner such as Oettinger or Caractere for a properly fitting and clean looking body kit.

Audi's deserve a clean look.

that was a first day valance that the previous owner had colour coded, i was searching the internet for a good rear valance but the majority are ott. The nicest one i have seen in my own opinion is the oettinger one for the new shape a3, but think custom fitting this to my own would be next to near impossible...



Would it be worth it??

Get one of these to fill the gap (might even need to enlarge it).
