    The Votex bumpers are all the same. The diesel version comes with whole grilles as opposed to ones with exhaust outlets in them.

    As I said, the bumpers are the same, it's only the grilles that are different.

    Bumpers vary between saloon/avant obviously.

    Well they are, the actual bumper is the same. It's just the inserts on either side that differ. So you can buy any bumper, sell on the exhaust style inserts and buy diesel style ones.

    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    Whats hard to come by, the bumper itself or the grilles?

    I think it was DPBayley who bought one from TPS recently and I'm sure can tell you how much it was.

    It's better to visit the branches than try the website in my experience.

    TPS are the people that sell parts to dealers and garages. They can be a bit funny about giving trade prices to retail customers, you'll have to just give it a try.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Votex rear personally, if you're set on it then I would do the exhaust tips conversion many TDi drivers do, as I think the exhaust cut out grilles in the bumper look better than the non cut out ones.

    The Votex rear valance cost me £182 + vat that's for the valance and centre grill then you also need to purchase the outer grills depending on your car with or without exhaust holes, i think these were £60ish i didn't buy these as i didn't like the wide open honeycomb mesh that's supplied for them and instead i fitted my own close knit black diamond mesh i only fitted this as i didn't want to be able to see through as the original bumper sit right up against the back of the grill holes.



    If your not carrying out the dual tip conversion then you will need to purchase the outers as they come with a plate/bar that screws to the lower bar in the outer grill holes once you trim as the instructions tell you then fit the plate to convert it to no exhaust cut outs, you would then have the choice of standard grill or your own style like what i did.
