I bought rear arches from Curtis Unlimited in California some years ago, not sure if they are still around. Maybe someone has current info?

Hi
I got a set of 4 arches for my s3 from Boss motors (norfolk England) about 6 months ago.
Someone had put s4 arches on it and painted it sprint colours.

Guys name is Chris tel uk 01953 887471 or you can look up on the web and email. A bit slow producing them but did the job in the end.
