The three holes for the screws are there for either the thin aero or the reinforced skid tray ..just had a look at pictures on the web...That's what I'm wondering... the only reason I can see for it to not fit is a possible absence of mounting screw holes? I don't have the a3/s3 subframe yet, but it would be a bit of a nuisance to set up an undertray now, and have to redo it later down the road...
Do yourself a favor and try to put the S3 aluminum skid tray on your golf. Both subframes obviously bolt to the chassis but have mounting holes for the skid trays in different places.& both fit the Golf & have the same mounting points etc.....please explain why the full length won't fit the alu Audi subframe?..
Wrong again....Do yourself a favor and try to put the S3 aluminum skid tray on your golf. Both subframes obviously bolt to the chassis but have mounting holes for the skid trays in different places.
The person "D_o_S" was asking about a Golf R with the A3 alu subframe this subframe is straight bolt on to the Golf..it is standard fit on the Golf Clubsport ....when this thread I started as a how to guide to retro fit the skidtrays etc that are made for MQB for the Golf...& I state in the beginning section for the Golf..Again, I'm speaking about the metal skid tray not working on the Golf. If that tray is only for the A3 cab, then I'm mistaken about the aluminum subframe. My understanding was that the metal tray was used by all of the A3 variants. It absolutely will not bolt to the Golf subframe.
^^^ That’s good info. I mistakenly thought that the aluminum skid plate mated with the aluminum subframe. I didn’t know that the convertibles got their own subframes that are different from the rest.
The only downside to the plastic skid tray (which I’ve been rocking for years thanks to golfdave) is the incompatibility with FMICs. I was hoping that the metal skid plate would be the perfect compromise but, as stated above, it doesn’t fit with the golf subframe.
I saw that deal in this thread but it doesn't seem to be available anymore. You guys got a great deal!I paid around $100 on ebay over a year ago.
237 euros from e-acca.
Aero tray for 47 euros from e-acca. That's where i got mine.I saw that deal in this thread but it doesn't seem to be available anymore. You guys got a great deal!
I did find the "aero" one , 5Q0825236Q, for $100 shipped on ebay. I might just go for that if I can't find the other one for $200 or under.
Either way, I'm glad I found this thread, thanks golfdave! I'm not really into modding but this one is a no brainer, in my opinion.
I just order via my dealer part dept sales counter...plus I have known the parts guy since about 1996....Thanks guy. I ended up ordering the aero tray, front and rear exhaust cover from e-acca for under $150. Their ordering process is a bit mysterious but I think I've successfully ordered and paid.
