    3 into 2.5

    anyone know whether the backboxes of a 3 litre tdi cab will fit the 2.5tdi,along with the bottom apron? got behind a 3 litre today and looked much better than my 2.5.

    The 3.0TDi is a B7 model so has a totally different rear bumper.

    I'm sure the back boxes would fit - but all you would need to do is a get a rear valance with the exhaust cut outs and weld some Powerflow tips on.

    Does the OP have a cab? It doesn't say so in his post unless I've misread it.

    yep,mines the b6 cab 2.5.the apron on the 3 tdi maybe the same as the 1.8 but the exhaust isnt,they still point down as do mine but they are more noticeable as they protrude from the apron whereas mine are hidden.

    Powerflow tips FTW! You can probably keep your existing valance then ??

    Does yours throw out smoke then? I've got a remapped 2.5 (180) and it doesn't throw out any soot......

    under heavy acceleration it throws a bit out yes but most of the time i nurse it so when on the occasions i do boot it obviously it shows its a diesel.

    Get yourself a new cut-out valance and then visit a Powerflow delaer - old ends cut off and new ones welded on - quality job over some cheaper DIY bolt-on ones from the high street or retail park!
    They have a choice of sizes - I went for the 100mm to fill the valance hole - be careful with small children - they can fall in if not properly supervised!!
