    8P pre-2006 S-Line front bumper splitter pics please.

    Hi, I have a car with the above bumper and would like to fit a spoiler/splitter. I have seen the Cupra R one fitted and quite like them but a bit concerned they may detach a bit too easily so Votex style may be better. I know there are mixed feelings about them and originals are like hens teeth but I almost bought a car with the whole kit, so I do like the front spoiler, don't like the rear so much and don't think any combination of front and side skirts would work, so it's front or nothing. There is a Votex lookalike on E.Bay someone on here was going to fit a while back and said quality was really good but lost the thread so never saw the finished article. Anyone got any pics of cars with either or I have heard some have both, Thanks.

    The Cupra splitter doesnt come off easily if you attach it properly... i had mine on for around 2 years without it coming off. screw and glue it on to hold it in place

    Yes please more pics, my bumper is like Johnathan's above and the spoiler he has is like the one I was thinking of, Is that Votex or where dod you get it from?
    TDI140s car is like my Wife's, the newer S-Line bumper, seems to lend it's self better to the Cupra-R splitter, I think? Like the grill too.
    Ash187, what do you glue it with, domething like Tiger seal?/sikaflex?

    Yh I used black sikaflex, after using the screws I could see some gaps between the spitter and the bumper and it bugged me to I filled the holes up with the sikaflex by using a small long bead running across the bumper

    Yep Votex front spoiler which can be bought from: Audi A3 Front Bumper Spoiler from 2005 NKTuning | eBay

    Alot of people nock mouldings as people have bad fits due to bad moulds and inccorect sizes. I have had two items from this eBay seller and both items were decent fitment - slight "Bowing" on the spoiler and had to tape down untill the silicone had set, but i am pleased with the final look.

    is like the one I was thinking of, Is that Votex or where dod you get it from?
