    Well after seeing a pic of the Votex bodykit i've fallen in love but when looking at an earlier thread of front grill mods, I saw others that looked really good too but don't know if theres others or where I could see them (e.g. what website).

    Another thing is, i'm not sure if it would suit black neither.. Some that i've seen are mainly with silver coloured A3's. What would work with black?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Get the votex! I think the aftermarket kits look, er, aftermarket, where as the votex doesn't.

    Many thanks TDI-Line :) I will have a good think but I do think Mark has a point that the Votex does seem to smooth in better with the car although I do love the front bumpers on the others.

    Just wondering if it will have the same affect with black because you can see all the gorgeous lines. Hmmmmmm

    ABT looks by far the best. Sporty but not in your face either. Spot on.

    Think i'm sold on the Votex. Looks very good but I do like the front bumper of the ABT but to be honest the Votex looks just as good.

    I see where your coming from though sat1983, I think if I had silver i'd go for it but otherwise I love the Votex in black especially after seeing pictures of it that Mark88 put up (thanks by the way, looks stunning!)

    Right i'm gonna get the Votex but have some questions about it:
    1) In mark88's pictures, he has twin tail pipes sticking out but has a TDI 140. Do the tail pipes come with the Votex kit?
    2) How much does it roughly cost?
    3) Wheres best to get buy and get it fitted from?
    4) I don't have the single frame front, would that be a problem?

    Many thanks guys for suggestions and input.

    1) Pass
    2) £1800
    3) Main Dealers or VAGPARTs, Audi-accessories
    4) They do the Votex kit for pre face lift. So make sure you order the right one.


    They sometimes come up on ebay, like now

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=290096093623&rd=1&rd=1

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=290096095055&rd=1&rd=1

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=290096096704&rd=1&rd=1

    But this one has already gone to high for me

    They must be pretty stupid cause you can buy the rear on ebay for cheaper

    Thanks for asnwering d3fy but £1800!!! Oh my gosh lol. I thought it was around half that!
    Hmmm that's seriously dented my chances of getting that this year. Ah well looks like the custom code remap could be up first then. What a shame :(

    I will keep an eye on ebay to see if theres any bargains regarding the Votex AND to make sure it's pre-facelift.

    Thanks for your help & links :)

    £1800 is fitted from a main dealer. Parts are about £1150. I'm going to get a front lip first
