    hi everyone,

    just bought an A4 avant, 1.9Tdi 150 and was looking for some sportier bumpers and wheels for it, as im a student and race karts i dont have alot of cash spare to spend on my car, but if the right parts came along i would be willing to spend the money on them.

    it may sound stupid but im not a monkey when it comes to cars, my dad is a mechanic and MOT tester and have been in the motor industry for over 30 years,

    regards

    It'll probably be a 1.9TDi 130, they didn't do a 150 in the A4 range.

    do they not do a 150? probably is a 130 then.

    with the bumper options, i like the look of the votex or sline kits, which is the easiest to get hold of and which is cheaper?

    after another look i like the votex front but the S4 rear, is it possible to still get hold of these and where is the best place to get hold of them?

    I brought the full Votex kit for my avant 3 weeks ago from TPS Audi not cheap though im afraid, i looked at some of the copy Votex kits on Ebay but they looks really flimsy.

    Here's a pic of front end copy, look terrible

    There may be some better replica kits about but i bit the bullet and went the whole hog and went genuine and glad i did as it was a doddle to fit, i bought front valance, rear valance, side skirts and spoiler.

    Mine in the pics is lowered on Apex springs (40mm) and i also fitted B5 spring perches on the front to drop it another 10mm.

    Wheels is a hard one as its all down to personal choice, i love my 18" RS6 alloys and if i was to change mine it would probably be to a set of 19" RS6 alloys.

    Just keep your eye out for 2nd hand bits, there are usually a few A4's being broken on ebay with different bumper options.etc

    Burgundy is quite a rare colour, nice though. I'm not really a huge fan of the Votex kits, but I think it would suit yours.
