    Modding my 1.8t sport bumper

    Just looking for a bit of advice really, I'm a bit tired of the black plastic trim around the bottom of my front and back bumpers / sideskirts which audi decided was to much effort to colour code... W*****s in my opinion xD.

    So, is it easy enough for a body shop to spray these? And any idea on costs etc... Thanks

    Surely this wil be down to the sprays shops own personal costs.

    You could always consider an aftermarket kit as the cost of re-spray often isnt too far from new

    550 cc Injectors / Milltek Exhaust Manifold

    Forge Silicone / Goodridge Hoses / EBC A/R

    G60 SMF / Launch Control Map

    Powerflex Black A/R / H&R Anti-Roll Bars

    Carbon Wrapping / 104Db @5400 RPM

    Would still have to spray an after market bumper, plus I quite like keeping it as oem as possible, just wanted rid of the black plastic xD

    Looks good on the silver with it dropped, mines a pretty nasty crystal blue, well its grown on me.. Was my first car and i needed one quick also was in good nik (there's been a few problems admitted but ive driven it 7k miles in 3 months and I like tinkering too much) . There's a guy in Daventry who said he would smooth over the join between top and bottom of the bumper and spray it. He's getting back to me with a price next week as I did call him just after they closed. I've seen his work and he's really good. Still unsure! It's being dropped 35mm next week so ill see what it's like after that.
