    Somebody drove into the back of my car at the weekend, and the bumper is damaged and will need replacing.

    My car is a 2004 3.2 S-Line with factory Votex kit.

    The Votex skirt is fine, so will remove and refit to the new bumper. But if I was to look out for a new bumper, which ones will fit? I assume there is a change after the facelift. Not sure if it has to be from an S-Line, or from certain models to retain the exhaust cut-out?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Cheers, Pete

    All bumpers from 2004 onwards will fit apart from sportback!

    I would ditch the votex rear (sell it) and buy a s-line rear bumper from a 2006 - much smoother and nicer looking! :)

    Thanks for the reply - wasn't so much wanting to know which bumper would fit, but which would be the same as what's on there at the moment.

    Comments noted about the Votex, but I want to keep it to match the rest of the kit. Factory will be easier when it comes to sell it.

    No probs mate - you will just have to go to audi or a breakers and get the same bumper that is already on the car and get the votex attached to it

    I certainly don't want to sound unappreciative of your help but....

    Thanks for stating the obvious! ;)

    Maybe my post wasn't clear; I was trying to establish which models would have the same bumper, so I could maybe look to source from a breakers.
