    Vinyl wrap Votex splitter

    Iv had a Votex splitter kicking around for ages. Its still in primer so was thinking of vinyl wrapping in black to go on Lava Grey. Has anyone done this or any opinions on what this would look like.
    And does anyone know if the 05+ splitter for the single grill will fit on an 04 double grill. Thanks.

    sounds like an excuse to do the conversion to me, worth every penny going to single grill imo

    They was an article on vinyl wrapping in a BMW mag, not sure it would be any cheaper than getting it sprayed?

    It would only cost about 7 to wrap it iv already got the tools and heat gun. I wrapped my inlays with brushed silver vinyl and the came out pretty good.
    always thinking about doing the single grill but it would cost 800+ unless i got lucky on ebay, And iv got a Wedding and honeymoon to pay for this summer and more importantly an ECU remap to pay for first.

    I think the votex front splitter looks okish when fitted. Main reason is due to the fact that it blends in to the original bumper, and doesn't look stuck on.

    If you wrap it black, it will stand out to much and just look very tacky. IMHO

    How do you fit the cupra splitters? Does it use the current fittings or is there drilling and stuff involved?

    Easy peasey.

    Cut of the 2 tall tags to the same height as the others,drill some pilot holes, and fix with self tapping screws.

    Half hour job if you take your time!

    Sounds awesome, I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for one! I'm assuming it's all plastics that you're drilling into?

    I'm up in Aberdeen so I might have to give the dealership here a ring once my car arrives to find out prices...

    Glad to hear its all plastic, and it does look the mutt's when its on. Hopefully even better with an Ibis BE...

    Ah ok. I was just thinking that an unpainted/vinyled might still match the dark centre bit of the s-line kit? Think that it would only cost 30 to get it wrapped anyway but would just save the hastle...

    Sounds ok to me! I'm sure that I'll be able to just fit it as is and should look pretty close to the centre of the sline kit! woohoo!

    Worst case is I just have a look at it before I buy it at Seat, no big deal! Cheers for all your help guys!

    Yeah, as soon as I get it I'll be taking a bit of a back road drive just after taking millions of photos! They will be up in the 'Black Edition' thread as soon as I get home from the drive!

    Just as in my sig with heated seats. Have S3 brakes waiting to go on, chip sitting waiting and thinking of having the roof done in black vinyl since I think it looks great on the sportback with the sunroof!

    Anything else you can think of that won't cost an arm and a leg?

    S3 brakes sound good as does the chip, just watch the boost levels incase of turbo problems and clutch slippage. The only other thing i'd do is sat nav, love mine. But in all sounds good.

    It's from Chip Express (www.chipexpress.com). I was sceptical but talked to a tuning place up here that said they had seen a few on their RR and they put out near enough makes no difference the same power/mpg as a custom map and ran very smoothly.

    I definately will! You can crank up the power but I don't think that I will straight away since after speaking with people on here it seems that I won't get any more power without getting rid of the DPF so it's not really worth it... Plus I think 200bhp and 400Nm is plenty to begin with. Think that it might surprise people, which is good enough for me!

    I thought about the sat nav but had a TomTom that I can update easily so was happy with that - and I like the 6 disc changer while not having to pay more for anything!

    Yeah, like I say it really does make it a bit of a diesel sleeper!

    With the xenons, tints, steering wheel, Bose, wheels and the engine on top of the sline equipment it makes me smile every time I think about it!

    Hey Keef, maybe. The guys there said they sell lots to A3 owners. Something Audi should think of selling at a sensible price instead of stupid prices. I got a price today for 4 small pieces of trim for the S Line diffuser, 25 for each small piece!!! crazy!
