    A3 8P1 Vortex Votex Body Kit Question

    Bit of an odd question but here goes,

    Firstly has anybody on here got a 8P1 with the votex/vortex body kit fitted on a 2.0 TDI?

    reason I ask is, i've seen a few around recently and there exhaust tips are different, im guessing this is part of the kit? as there finished in a nice crome, and are actully pointing out wards, and really finish the car off well..

    does anyone know, if I can buy these seperate? or is the whole exhaust that needs changing?

    Cheers guys

    As far as I believe, its down to the type of engine not the votex kit. Petrol engines have the chrome extensions and diesels dont as standard.

    Its not part of the kit but they are available for all engine types.........which obviously is why they dont come with the kit, The kit is universal!

    I have them on my TDI, they do sit a little under the votex rear skirt but they all do that, no matter what engine.

    Got them from Audi, think i paid 25 in the sale, they are usually about 75

    You need some sort of cutting tool to fit them as the OEM tail pipe covers on the TDI need removing. You need to split the weld. Once they are off then they just slide on and tighten up wil an allen key. This pic shows how they should sit in the valance (needs tips polishing though)
