    hi folks joined a while ago when i had my s3 but she is unfortunately long gone and i am looking at starting my next project in the next 4-6 weeks, im going to be doing a b6 convertible and wanted the votex front skirt however from what im reading it wont fit, has anybody fitted one to a convertible or know what would be involved to fit one and if its not possible then what are the options available for the soft top ??????

    im really tempted by the oettinger front but i prefer the votex, there cant be that much difference between the saloon and convertible bumpers

    the b6 saloon and avant bumper is a 2 part bumper
    the cabby has a 1 piece front bumper
    so you cant split the bumper to fit the vortex bottom

    no its a diffrent bumper altogeather
    the b6 saloon avant has the grill in the bonnet
    cab in the bumper
    you would have to change wings bonnet bumper etc
    just look at yours and look at a pic of the saloon you will see why

    the rdx s line bumper looks like it will be the best bet to be honest, i hate the big grill b7 conversions they do but the s line one looks really good

    Is this what you're after? 21062009005.jpg

    I don't know where I found this pic but it looks like the votex lip on a stock cabriolet bumper, sure I've got some more pics somewhere too.
