    Removed the bump strip from the front bumper...

    Does look loads better but personally I'd just go for the Sline front

    Yeah,

    Original:



    Edit:



    I would buy the S-line bumper, or better still the S3 one, but funds are gonna be tight for a while, so I thought maybe of removing them and filling them, for the above effect. My front bumper is mash anyway, full of chips and theres a RDS on the bottom lip from previous owner catching a kerb maybe?

    Afterall it has done 125k+ and really does show it! Thinking of getting it resprayed as a cheaper alternative for the meantime!

    Maybe add the Votex front lip and smooth that in too!

    Aye that lip does change the look but that bump-strip makes it stick out a bit hah.

    I'm trying to go about the cheap option of the front and rear end conversion by getting bumpers the same colour, obviously providing the bumpers are in good nick as well!

    there's an american owner on here who has smoothed a votex lip onto his car - it looks quite good, but i think it was a lot of effort to do and tbh for the price you might as well go S-Line
