    My A4 B5 with LCR front lip fitted

    For those that might want to see pics of what it looks like and a cheeky pic of my car to go with it, I am happy with the lip but if you get close they used sealant to block the gaps which I cant tell if it makes it look tacky or not, its maybe because I know its there, from the pic distance though it looks great I think and its definitly staying

    Still waiting for my ICC grill, was told it will be another 2 weeks today

    Wheels soon

    Comments and ideas of any nature welcome

    I think the lip looks good. Glad you didn't paint it.

    Looks nice. Like Sienna said, better not painted and adds a nice bit of contrast. What sort of price was it?

    Lip looks good!! I want the same lip too! Where did you got that and what was the price? I've never seen that lip before. (In Finland we have mostly glassfibre**** lips for B5 in stores. )

    I got it from a Seat dealer, someone on here kindly gave me the part number but if you just ask for the Leon Cupra R lip I am sure they will be able to provide it. I paid £30 but most seem to get them for around £20

    The body shop said it wasnt particulary easy to fit, they had to heat it and bend it into place and then fill the gaps with silicon, there is also still a bit on each side over hanging but you can only see it if you get up close so I am not worried about it

    Cheers all

    ooo i like that!

    is it a direct fit? you mention it needed some gaps filling? my stock one is all ripped and nasty! (btw, any one know how much a standard one is?)

    does the undertray still clip onto it OK?

    Hi, undertray is a totally seperate peice IIRC

    The replacement plastic bit it £48 from Audi as I replaced mine for the LCR lip.

    No its not really a direct fit, it needed heating and shaping and the ends trimming, then black silicon to fill up gaps. You can see the silicon up close but IMO its better than gaps

    cool. certainly cheaper than the genuine audi part and looks cool too!

    the undertray attaches to back edge of the front chin on eitherside infront of the wheel. i think it should also attach to the underside of the car, but mines hanging off....

    any more photos?

    thanks for in the info!

    Oh no sorry you miss understand, the lower bumper plastic peice is a genuine Audi part which I replaced as it was knackered, £48 from Audi. The lip was from Seat and a totally seperate part. The undertray is a seperate part again but I didnt need to replace that as its out of site and in good condition

    lol no sorry, but I am glad thats how it looks as thats what I wanted!

    All in all it cost a fair bit for a cheap mod, £49 for new lower bumper valance, £30 for LCR lip (most places are £20 I got ripped off) and £20 to have it all fitted
