    Votex Body Kit

    All this talk about the new sline kits makes me want one!

    So I called Audi Sheffield and just for the rear, front and side skirts fitted it will be Ł1800. No freaking way am I paying this.

    Any one else bought the votex kit after the fact and got it fitted, how much did you end up paying? Can the kit be bought direct from VAG parts et al?

    Thanks

    Votex isn't the same as the S-line kit.

    I had my Votex fitted through Sheffield Audi, they don't even do it themselves, it gets sent to Chesterfield I think.

    Initially they quoted me some stupid price like Ł2200 or Ł2400, however after I gave them a quote I had from Doncaster Audi which was Ł1750 they would match it.

    Sheffield and Doncaster are even part of the same group, Gilder Audi.

    Yup - Sheffield don't have a body centre so they farm it out to Gilders VW in Chesterfield or Hillsborough. It still stands that I am F*cking not paying Ł1800

    So why not call Doncaster or Chesterfield, get a quote from them and then call Sheffield again?

    because I guess they will not be a million miles away on price, I will, but I was hoping to get it closer to a grand than two

    You'll never know until you call?? My quote was half a grand cheaper, I don't see why you're any different than me?

    Git.

    Just been to Audi to get the prices for the parts....

    Foglight - Ł63.42 + vat
    Front lower grille - Ł41.04 + vat
    Side grill - Ł17.06 + vat
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Votex front spoiler Ł250 inc vat

    Ouch.

    Grills and fog light I can replace myself, but there's no getting round the front spoiler. (Which if someones quick I just left on the M27 at Port Solent....whoops)

    why not price up the body kit from audi,then get a quote from a good body shop to paint and fit it,if audi farm it out,they will put on a fair bit more for themselfs

    Re: Votex Body Kit

    Watch out for the labour rates that they are trying to charge you. Most independent bodyshops should be charging around Ł24-Ł28 an hour. Id imagine the dealers will charge a lot more, but the service might not necessarily be better. An independent should be able to match the colour etc ok providing you choose a good one. They may also be able to supply the kit themselves if they have an account with Audi. I think we can get our hands on one, Im thinking about adding it to my A3 but I cant decide!

    Re: Votex Body Kit

    I have no complaints about the fitting of my Votex kit. I don't see your problem d3fy. Call Chesterfield Audi, get your quote, Call Sheffield tell them "Chesterfield quoted me XXX" and they'll match it. Considering the same place does the work any way they can hardly refuse..

    I looked at my notes I made when I price it mine, Cheapest quote I got was from Portsmouth Audi Ł1700, Chesterfield were Ł1750, Doncaster Ł1800, Leeds Ł2000, Sheffield was Ł2200.

    I cannot imagine paying anything like the Ł1700 on offer. Are some of you totally insane?

    Mark, I ain't paying no Ł1500 quid for it! A grand tops, so I will call them and get some prices for just the kit.

    That's the going rate for the full kit. If you were to get quotes for it today, I don't think you'd get it much cheaper than that.
