    Not my bag matey, from what I can see it almost looks like it belongs on a drift car!

    Why not just go for a LCR front lower splitter until you can decide what you really want???

    Isn't that the Votex one?

    I quite like that, although I have to agree that the LCR splitter looks great on the A3 also. Any idea how much the shipping and import duty is for that?

    How about both...

    I would like LCR as well its cheap and easy to fit but dont know how good will look on audi a3 year 2004 ? I am looking to get something like Votex first but its hard to find something at reasonable price.

    One of the email ecs tuning sent me the price went over the top
    Hello,
    Shipping to you would be $ 173.46 . Your total would be $ 223.41 with UPS Shipping.If you still wanted to place the order let me know.Hope this helps.Thank you.

    It's a pit that shipping is so expensive. ECS have also got the side skirts and rear spoiler at good prices too, just what I need I've got the Votex rear diffuser waiting for the rest to turn up...

    Thats the spoiler I have, certainly not off a drift car lol

    If you look at it, most of the plastic fits under the car, only 2 inches of it sticks out/visible

    I haven't got the front or sides yet, only the rear diffuser.
    I've just e-mailed ECS to see the cost for shipping front spoiler, side skirts and rear spoiler, as all in they're only $199 which is only 128.00!

    I notice that they've got deals running for the 4 and 5 piece kits, pity I only purchased the rear diffuser last week!

    There's a guy at work who imports stuff from the States and reckons that it can be done way cheaper than UPS, so I've asked ECS if it's possible to arrange my own shipping. Apparently if the items are marked 'Demo', 'Gift' or 'Replacement' they don't attract import tax in the U.K. but I don't know how/whether this is a viable option.

    I wonder if there's a 'group buy' option here to have the stuff shipped over all together and benefit from a bulk shipping discount?

    I've been quoted 90 to ship 3 boxes the size of the one my rear diffuser came in, which isn't bad. For reference the measurements for a brand new boxed rear diffuser are:
    Weight: 5Kg
    Length: 170cm
    Width: 50cm
    Height: 20cm

    The quote was a web quote, so I need to call and confirm, but I'm awaiting a reply from ECS to see if I can arrange my own shipping...

    yeah skirts are lovely on a 3dr but look odd on a sportback due to the jacking point cutouts. The rear is not my cup of tea on both models!

    neither of them are as good as the votex one i feel

    but personally i think you should get an S-Line front end. more expensive, but it'll look a lot better. and if you have an 8P2 then ppl do want your bumper and grille for the 8P1 > 8P2 conversion so you'll recoup some money

    i think you should leave the front lip and save money for an 8P2 front end. i had an 8P1 and now have an 8P2 and it just looks SO much better

    have a look for parts on eBay. you'll need a front bumper, grille and bonnet. you can reuse the foglights and fog grilles if you're going for the Sport front end. if you go for an S-Line front end you'll need fogs and fog grilles as well

    Alot! PArts are rare on Ebay as so many want to do it. You will find you have to get some parts new as the wait is endless. TBH its well worth saving and doing the conversion!

    just search for "a3 breaking" and call the sellers. go for trade sellers with good feedback to know you're not getting stolen parts, or get robbed when you turn up to get your "cash on collection only" item

    or there's this bumper:

    AUDI A3 FRONT BUMPER WITH GRILL - GENUINE on eBay (end time 07-Oct-10 14:41:17 BST)

    your fogs will work with that one, so you need a bonnet and a respray

    Thought I'd throw ABT's offering into the pot, I know it's considerably more expensive than other kits but it is manufactured using PUR-RIM which has been TUV approved which is of far superior quality than the cheaper fibreglass options.

    just bear in mind with the above product it clips onto your existing numberplate holder so the silver trim isn't flush with the rest of the grille. as a stopgap mod it's not bad tho.

    Are you referring to this part: ABT Front Grille | Showroom | abt-sportsline.co.uk then yes, we still make it, it's actually one of our most popular products as it's a good way of updating your front end without forking out for all the parts
