    Hello

    I'm looking at buying a low mileage A3 2003-2006 3/5 door 2.0 tdi but don't really want the standard model look.

    What other models of A3 allow a direct transplant of skirts/bumpers to the TDI without changing the bonnet/lights/etc?

    Something similar to this would be perfect but open to other ideas

    That car has a votex kit on. I believe Lee a member on here got the rear valance for sale.
    Do a search on the forum for Boydie his pre-facelift had the some of the kit on looked pretty good!
    Votex rear spoiler is £150 from Audi. Have a look on ebay

    Votex front = win

    votex rear = epic fail

    I'd do a single frame grille conversion if your car doesn't have it, either S-Line or votex front and S-Line rear with a spoiler.

    It's an opinion. You're more than welcome to disagree with it. You're driving the car, and If you're happy with it m happy for you

    The best stuff for an A3, is the S3 kit

    Nothing else comes close

    Before - S-line standard part

    [​IMG]

    After - S3 front bumper and skirts

    I personally think the Votex kit still holds up well! It's aggressive looking and turns a normal pre-facelift A3 into something more upto date!

    Of course I would say that, as I have it on my A3!:)

    [​IMG]


    Agreed the rear is like Marmite! I think it looks good in Black :ninja:

    Whatever you put on, just do it like you meant it!

    Update us munchkincoupe when you do it.:icon_thumright:

    Rite here a question for you all. i like the old split grill especally the DIY conversions to make it look like a one piece. would it be possible for some one to do the slingle grill look( like sarahs was) mould the vortex splitter with filler and take the bump strips off and mould them so they look smooth ( like the sline)
