    Rear Valance / Diffuser

    Gents,

    Quick question before i end up having to buy one to make a custom one.

    Im wanting to shorten my exhaust so i can have a smooth rear diffuser, seen it on a TT before and think it will go well with my boot im making.

    Did any of the rear diffusers fitted to the a4 have no exhaust holes???

    Taaaa

    I think some of the old B6 variants had smooth diffusers, not sure if they would fit the B7? Slight modification maybe required?

    In fact that bumper looks like the diffuser/bumper is one piece, not 2....

    Just found some old pics of my B6 tdi, that had a smooth rear bumper. But the section which is the swappable diffuser on the B7 is integral to the bumper (as shown above). Bit of fiberglass and some carbon warp will see you right though!

    i havent seen any
    after seeing an exhaust delete on a tt with smooth diffuser i liked it

    but with the diffuser i would want to try keep the line it has in it if you know what i mean were it joind in a bit from edge, so might have to be custom
