    S-line or Votex kit?

    Been thinking of treating myself for Xmas by buying myself a bodykit for my 2003 A4 TDI.

    Just been on the Audi accessories webpage http://www.audi-accessories.co.uk/in...ewCat&catId=11 and dont know whether to go for the S-line kit or the Votex one.

    Any opinions??

    If i had to pick one of them kits it would be the S-Line.I dont like all the plastic bits on the rear of the votex kit and the front bumper looks cr@p imo.Is the votex kit the one that sticks on top of your original bumpers?Have you thought about other kits or does it have to be one of these?

    The Votex one I think does just sit in front of the old one, which means you can see through the grills. Which spoils it. Would be much better buying the front bumper/valance through Audi (or perhaps audi-accessories) separately.

    I was going through this dilemma myself recently, and in the end I've just colour coded what was there. Not as sporty looking but still looks good...

    As a matter of interest, the front valance direct from Audi was £110 incl. VAT (includes the 2 x side grills for the spots too).

    im also thinking of fitting either the s-line or vortex front bumper/apron but is there anyway of fitting the Vortex front skirt flush with the rest of the bumper?

    I was looking at these 2 kits because they're original Audi parts, but could consider other alternatives

    When i got my A4 i really wanted to get an S-Line kit for it.After seeing a few around with this kit on i wanted something different same as i did with my wheels.Im really glad i chose something different now as ive not seen another A4 near me with this kit on.There is one with a reiger kit which does look nice.

    Definitely S-line. The Votex looks good from 10ft away but up close you can see how it gets stuck on over the existing lower trim. There is a noticeable lip around where everything is stuck on which spoils the looks of the B6 IMHO.

    S-line FTW!

    Will be taking some pics as soon as there is some decent weather, as my avatar needs updating also.

    The car looks MUCH better now it's been colour-coded.

    Some might think a body kit isn't necessary...

    Im for the vortex kit..I purposely bought one instead of the later s-line kit....its too subtle in my opinion...the vortex is a bit more apparent! If fitted well, it looks good.The joint simply looks like the shape of the bumper.
    I also think the vortex is a bit rarer..

    The joint looks weird to me.Sides look ok though.

    I am also thinking of retrofitting my 02' A4 with the s-line kit.
    Is "audi-accessories" the best place to go with ?
    Also, is it true that the lower front bumper would also need a replacement of the upper front bumper ?
    Just want to make clear that the retrofit kit has already included everything needed for the conversion.
    Thanks.
