    Do you know if these are dear to buy from Audi? Excuse my ignorance but is vortex a different manufacture than Audi? or is it just the name of the style??

    Cheers
    Tom

    My mistake, that's the s-line front end you have alright.

    Votex are owned by Audi, so technically they're OEM...

    Nice wheels BTW!

    The votex rear splitter wont fit your s line mate, (being an 07 yours does not have the rub strip round the middle of the bumper or the ridge at the bottom) best mod you could do its buy an S3 one from Audi, they are similar money at look the best out of all of them

    Would you have a Photo of yours? Will this fit on my 06 rear bumper or is it a new bumper? If I like the look I may take yours off your hands!

    They work out about 220 (Nath will confirm) as you have to buy the valance (the lower bit of your bumper) and the S3 insert and towing eye cover.

    Because your S line is the 06 facelift, it has the same rear bumper as the S3 so it will be a straight swap. Nath is doing the same mod but he has a sportback so the bumper is different. but the principle is the same.

    I believe the you can buy the outer bit and the valance, and it should fit yours. Top half is the same.

    Excuse my ignorance Lee, so all I need purchase is the rear valance S3 insert? (not sure what this is) and towing eye cover which is about £220. Don't suppose you know if they come painted or need to be sprayed?

    Cheers though...

    No you will need the lower valance (Comes primed), the valance insert (comes finished in graphite grey)and the towing eye which matches the insert.

    bviously you will need the lower valnce painted before you can fit the insert to it. You can see all 3 bits in this pic
