    Cupra splitter on s-line

    hi! just looking through some treads and come across 10blazin who has fitted a cupra splitter in s-line, looks top noch! just a quick question does it come primed or it is standard black? i want it to match my optics grille which is shiny, will i have to get the splitter painted? thanks

    It comes from the Seat dealer in a matt black plasticy colour.

    I'd never paint the one on my Leon but then that scrapes on the floor which is why it's there!
    If you type like a retard, chances are I will assume you ARE a retard! Simple really!!

    is it the big grille or double grille? the shape of the splitter is designed to go with the s-line lip, may look slightly off, but worth ago for 20 kwid!

    they are not designed for the s line. they are designed for a cupra r.

    so really if you are stubborn enough , they will fit anything.

    you will have to cut the 2 center supports down on the splitter, as they sit higher than the rest, as that is how they mount on the cupra r front .

    other than that, they are quite flexible, so give it a go.just screw on from under neath with self tappers

    im sure they have been fitted to se before.

    If you have a go , post some pics, as i am considering this mod myself to my se.

    my front grill is glossy my surround is painted gloss so matt black with them would of looked cack imo so i used the same spray and rubbed the splitter down first then sprayed it gloss black and clear coat i think looks much better on mine anyhow the clearence is fine ive never had a scrape once and if you did its undernieth so wouldnt affect paint anyhow heres the only pics i have but i thought it was worth it for 26 quid then paint much better than without anyhow.... and yeah it will fit a 03 sportback but i think yours is before the facelift so you would be better with the votex lip like boydie has the cupra lip looks poo on the older bumper votex is much nicer where as the sline facelift like mine looks good with the cupra imo

    He had clearly got the old one anyway, his sig says 2005!

    I'd go for Votex (and have done), the cupra lip looks pants on the pre facelift.

    Heres one on Ebay now,

    thank you for your time and input!
    but i mean im confused as to what splitter to get!!!

    the cheaper, but not so good looking cupra
    or
    the more expensive and better looking votex

    i was looking at this thread, and thinking, hmm nice cheap and easy mod that makes a big difference!

    i think what is being said is if you have sline- the cupra splitter

    if you have se -then votex

    but this is all down to opinion.

    for the small price of a cupra splitter in comparison to a votex , it may be worth trying the splitter first. Then if you aint happy with it, then go for the votex.

    Dont buy the cupra splitter of ebay though, just go to the local seat dealer or even a vag one maybe .They will be cheaper there and no postage

    it is your car m8, you may like something that someone else doesnt think looks good

    hope this helps

    Marty - buy the sline front bumper off ebay - will look much better than adding the votex or cupra splitter to your bumper!
