    after about an hour trying to remove the stupid plastic cover is was off motor out and stripped down cleaned and re greased and re built fingers crossed it lasts but im not that hope full so cover is staying off for a bit as i need to get a replacement boot switch as it only opens with the key in the lock

    the cars need some bits tidying up and replacing but overall im really happy with it

    all comments welcome good or bad :)

    Has the kit been screwed on too tight? Looks like bumps from the screws pushing through all around bumpers and sills. Otherwise looks tidy and just needs a bit of TLC. Looks to have been lowered already, too.

    What you got planned then???

    See now I thought it was to tight that or it's been removed and re fitted badly either way if needs fixing not sure on weather it's been lowered not even got that far as to looking under it yet just currently trying to get rid of the smell out the car it literally smells of fags and last nights curry !!!!

    Votex kit won't have come cheap so don't understand why someone would do such a poor job of fitting it!? From some of the pics I've seen it sometimes look poorly fitted from factory. Be interested to see what you can do with it.

    Here's a pic of mine on factory sport springs (20mm lower)

    As for the smell...dealers used to use deoderiser bombs but they can't now due to health and safety so try ebay

    been out playing aging today now have the boot handle working , well it was never not working just the solenoid that it triggers was shot, so go to my shed look for the bits i stripped out of my old passat boot only a few weeks ago and bingo found a nice working solenoid to use and it worked a treat (i like fixes that dont cost me anything)

    old broken audi item:

    working passat one:

    almost ready to try and re-fit the ruddy boot trim just want to leave it another week and keep trying the window wiper and wash system to make sure it works with no leaks
