    Which body kit?

    Hi all, I've started to look at body kits for my car, specifically a front lip spoiler of some sort, at least to start with. Has anybody got any recommendations and will I need side skirts as well to stop the front looking lower than the sides?

    The Rieger has caught my eye so far.

    Many thanks

    Body kits are SO 2001. Please don't ruin your car.

    As long as you do not go OTT with stupid stick on kits

    Stick with the likes of OEM Audi stuff, Oettinger or Reiger

    Cheers I'll do that. I didn't mean Dimma styleee wide boy crusier slammed on 20's with the bassss pumping type I just meant the more subtle stuff like you see on the S line or S3 but to add to my car, like thie rieger lip spolier on this link.

    IMO if you don't want to detract from the value of your car, the only way to go is S-line or Votex, anything else is aftermarket and will put people off when you come to sell it.

    I would agree as the kits for the 8P dont exactly do it any favours huh.

    God just looked at the Rieger kits, they are horrible man, make it look as bad as the ones above, not nice at all, I think I'm gonna invest in the S3 body kit now as its cheaper than the sline would you beleive it, lol.

    The best place for Votex if you've got time and patience is Ebay, there's also a chance that you could get some from GTi International, there's normally loads of auto jumble there.
