    Hi "Stevie-g",

    Just taken my rear lower valance off to fit an S-line one - Do you want my old one, if you can arrange collection?
    Was going to post it on Ebay at the weekend.

    There are some scuffs on the n/s just behind the rear wheel - but you can't see them as underneath.

    @ Woorlord, is that valance from a saloon?

    Ok here are the measurements, I hope they make sense, let me know if you need anything else.

    Yep - Saloon.

    Thought Saloon & Avant were the same for the valance - only the upper bumper is model dependent?

    How sure are you about that? The part numbers are different.

    Not sure enough! Your right lower valance is model dependent too.
    The standard valance is preceded 8E5 for Saloon, 8E9 for Avant.
    The valance I have shown is marked 8E5 807 512 A and I should have 7DL added for "grey colour"

    Thanks for clarifying that small detail :banghead:

    No problem Stevie. Personally I think that if you cut you will weaken the structure of it and it may lose it's shape and stuff. The standard grey lowers seem cheap enough on ebay (for saloons anyway lol).

    No worries, I am quite knowledgable in this from my extensive searching lol!
