    OK I have a 2004 B6 1.9 TDi Sport with the funky door blades

    I have already got the VOTEX front bumper/lower bumper so would like to match up the rest of the car

    I have ordered the infamous partsdepot side skirts part number 8EC0716859AX
    Now, I have been informed by the suppliers that these skirts will not fit my car, mainly because of the door blades. I dont see how because the blades are on the doors, and these fit to the sills???:wacko:
    They also say that they dont fit the B6 !!
    Whats this all about? Anybody with my car fitted these? Any pics?


    I also want the rear Votex lower valance like this so I can do my twin exit exhaust conversion:

    Does anyone know where to get it from? How much it costs? From trawling the net it seems they are being discontinued hence going cheap! Found some cheap websites but all in USA.
    Part Number 8E0071610U9AX

    ANY LINKS AND INFO APPRECIATED.

    I'm reading this and assuming he means the Votex GmbH sideskirts???
    I would have thought that door blades would fit ok with these sideskirts, but not 100% as i only have the skirts fitted on mine.

    I think the problem with the skirts is that the design will clash with the door blades and Audi dont like that

    I dont think there is a problem with fitment - Im sure I saw a B6 with both fitted when trawling the net (I knew I should have saved the link!)

    any help with the rear valance?

    They come up on ebay from time to time, other than that there are a few aftermarket replica suppliers.

    anyway.. my ABT rear bumper valance arrived today:jump:
    AND my Votex sideskirts!!

    [​IMG]

    It comes with the trim (not pictured) to reduce the gap size to single exhausts instead of the ABT Quad

    I am hoping it will look right and not OTT or boy racer :wacko:

    I would still love the VOTEX item (as below) instead but simply cannot find it
    :(

    I've heard of ECS, but I can't comment on them. Have you tried asking on Audizine?

    If it's a Votex you 'really' want hang out for one, they are about and you'll only regret it if you don't.

    Well it owes me £100 for the valance plus £90 for the twin exhaust infills and meshes but it will need respraying as it got scuffed when a learner driver went into the back of my car. I got it all sorted on the insurance and ensured they fitted a new replacement even though all it needed was a respray. I then made sure they saved it for me and didnt throw it in the skip, hence why I have it for sale.

    I don't have an actual price in mind but a sensible offer would secure it. I'll get round to putting it on ebay eventually but just thought I'd see if any of you guys wanted it first.

    Yeah its got a part number on it, I will check when I get home later for you.

    And Tatterz, sorry, but the only 1.8T exhaust I have is the one I fitted to my car when I did the conversion. Have a nice standard 1.9TDI one though if you want that? lol
