    Pics of my modded Votex rear bumper

    Just self primer/painted/lacquered the S4 exhaust exit valances for my Votex bumper and well happy with the results. Allowed a good 72hrs to harden and then fitted them today :D .

    Will be doing the S4 tailpipes on Wednesday, then the S4 black bonnet grill to follow :thumbs: .

    Here's a bunch of pics I took as I went along today, took around 2hrs with some very carefull cutting of mesh grill and bumpers trim. Hope this helps anyone else thinking of doing the same thing.

    Yeh, I'll be cutting then welding the stainless tailpipes on. Will take a while to get the correct angles, lengths and asymmetry but should be worth the time & effort.
    More pics to follow.

    Cheers for the comments guys, much appreciated.

    I got the valance inserts from Autobahnstyling. Took a week to arrive, but was a nervous week as I paid the money and never got any order confirmation until the day before they arrived.

    looking good mate, nice job

    wonder how it will sound after, as the tail pipes should change the exhaust note a bit.

    have fun & keep us upto date with some more photos

    You can buy the inserts from the stealers, they come with the mesh too. About 85 for the pair when I got mine.

    The Votex rear has 2 options, with the exhaust cutouts (petrol version) or without cutouts (diesel version). The valance is the same its just the inserts that are different and these can be bought separately. 85 for the petrol version, 95 for the diesel version.

    Current Car:

    I'm not sure Autobahn are still trading, so try the dealers as mentioned.

    They're at the top of this section of the forum... marked 'sticky' .... thus named because they always remain at the top.
