    I removed my towbar last weekend and where it was fitted left a cut out in the spoiler.

    Apart from the standard bumper spoiler for a PFL avant, is there any other options out there?
    Had a quick search and just found loads of gaudy rubbish.

    Most common mod is probably a facelift S4 bumper.

    Did think about that but got other things to do at the moment.
    Just after something quick and cheaper for the interim.

    LOL.

    It will play on my mind, I will get sleepless nights and get pissed off and cover it in tape but then i'll get paranoid that the tape is falling off and i still wont get any sleep. lol

    Do you have any pics of it? I removed mine and it just left a bit of the underside of the bumper(black plastic) with a hole, not visible from behind unless you bend down to look. If its this then it unclips from the bumper, source one from a breaker and clip it back on if thats it.

    No pics yet, I will try and get one today.

    The hole they cut out is almost the complete height of the spoiler and about 2-3inches across.

    I have the Votex one on mine, and there was also a hole in it above where the towbar used to be. I squared it away with some fibregalss, then resprayed it. It's an easy process that just requires patience and a steady hand. You can buy fibre glass kits from all good hardware stores (and Halfrauds-lol) for around 10-20 bucks. However I completely agree (and laugh) with Aragorns comment on ignoring it being the cheap quick fix option. DO NOT UNDER BUY ANY ****** OFF EBAY!!!!LOL.

    Far as I know it came from the factory as an option. Mine certainly did, I have the original Audi factory options print out for mine, and it includes "sports bodykit" which is obviously the votex. If you check out NWlarge black avant in the pics thread then you can see it.
