    Full Votex Kit - Ł400 - Is it Worth it?

    Hey Guys

    Came across a full votex kit for Ł400? 8p-Pre-facelift.

    Front is sprayed silver but never put on and sides and back are new in primer.

    Is that worth it or shall i keep hunting on the bay...I know few members picked up bargains but i really want my car to have the kit on it (sick of driving something standard!)

    Been looking since June and cant really seem to find anything on ebay.

    Its brand new genuine BTW.

    And also, how much would i be looking to get it all sprayed?

    Cheers

    I knew you were going to say that

    I don't want to go S3 as if i buy one next, then I'll have the same looking car again but looking at Boydies/Kevs and a few other examples, I'm sure i can make it work :P

    i think they look awesome..

    I quite like the front lip, the sides are not that prominent so they will be fine, its the rear i'm not so sure about but i picked mine up for Ł50 so i'm not too worried.

    If you put the rear on, there is quite a big cut out for the exhaust so you need some nice tail pipes to fit in it.

    Well s3 skirts are about that anyway so if you like the lip & it comes with the skirts for that price then guess its a fair deal, personal preference

    Retail form Audi

    Front Ł250
    Rear Ł250
    Sides Ł300

    so its quite a big saving, saying that though, most dealers would do you a deal on a complete kit, but it wouldnt be Ł400 thats for sure!

    I think I've just bought it! It's all brand new, never fitted, with the fiting kit and insturctions etc. :D

    i like the rear:




    I seen one in reality and i really did like it but its down to personal preference - thats what makes all of our cars unique :D

    Also, kind of reminds me of my ex, the golf: Dunno why ?!


    Reckon i could get a LCR splitter on the front :P

    Thanks for everyones help and I'm officially broke so the kit wont be going on anytime soon :D

    Thanks again guys for all your help !!

    One thing i've noticed with the rears is that some have a black inlay sticker across the middle (same as pic below but hard to see on grey car) and others dont.

    the standard tailpipes look rubbish on that grey one, fatter and longer needed!

    Cheers mate :D

    Hopefully, should have it on within the next few months.

    Done alot to my car this month (s3 mirrors, s3 calipers, conti sport contact 3 tyres and quite a few more bits) so going to "TRY" and take it easy on my wallet now!

    I hate this forum though!! Pics of Boydies, NHN and Kevs A3 and few more modding owners coupled with all you S3 owners and everyone carrying out mods that i want... rinsing me dry!! lol

    lol.

    Does anyone know whether the standard rear tow-covering arm fits the vortex rear skirt?

    The seller says it does but just double checking :D

    At least the sides are for a 3-door

    For the 5 door the number is 8P90716859AX.

    Are they really different between 3 and the 5 door?

    Yes as the 3 door skirts raise up a lot sooner to compensate for having no door whereas the 5 door skirts only have a short, raised area since they have a rear door.

    You can see here in the pic below of the 5 door at the bottom left hand side of the rear door that there is a small, plastic cover between the arch and the door frame:



    Compare this to the 3 door and it is a lot longer:
