    Hi all, I have seen many older posts about fitting an splitter, now I am guessing this is what I can see on many non S Line cars pictured all over the various websites. So as it looks like a good way of finishing off the front of my "half & half" European A4 I wonder if anybody can tell me what Seat it comes off, as the Cupra seems to be a version not a model?

    Thanks, Phil

    Nathan, how many coats did you do the splitter in? Unpainted it does look a little too plasticy (sp?), but painted does look spot on!

    In the end it was 3 coats of satin black and 2 coats of satin. However, I've never painted stuff before and ended up painting it many times and gaffing it and having to peel it all again.

    I'd paint it, Rich asked several times why I bothered until he fitted it and you notice the difference. I bought a can of primer, can of satin black from Halfords and bought some clear coat spray off ebay. Took me a few attempts to get used to not over spraying.

    Yep, paint it but don't spray too much on at any time and prime it first.

    Hi wrath I have a splitter sitting in the garage waiting for me to fit I like the look of your satin black splitter did you spray it before fitting or after and did you need to use plastic primer ?

    Thanks

    I painted it before I put it on, didn't want to tape my paintwork and/or have it rain when it dried.

    Process was:

    Lightly sanded it (there were strands of plastic that needed to be cut off)
    Primer'd with Halfords plastic primer. Think I did two coats (again, don't put too much on)
    Sprayed with Halfords Satin Black paint. Did two or three coats but don't put too much on and don't have any pets in the vicinity :D
    Sprayed 2 coats of clear coat (bought a spray can off ebay).
    Leave for a couple of days and fitted it.

    Another one for your Nathan :)

    Do you get any issues with stone chips on it? Imagine it being at that height it might do...

    Also how did you get the fog surrounds to fit? Was it just a cut it up job? And where and how much did you get them for?

    Cheers
    Darren

    No problem mate :)

    I did think about what effect stone chips might have on it and I haven't actually noticed any yet. I'm sure they are there but how frequently do you look that closely to the bottom of your bumper? If it did get a hefty wack then I can always unscrew it from the bumper and respray it.

    Ah, the fog grilles :) They are the original S-Line ones but Richardesty had some spare RS4 mesh in his shed so he dremmeled the mesh to fit behind the grille. He then put on a small amount of black mastic to keep it in place. He made it look so easy.

    I'm sure if you PM'd him, he could do it for you at a small price.

    ref the ones in work with removing the centre bar etc., if you were to do these to sell (to say me :)) how much would you do it for?

    It must be that spare stuff then. Didn't need an awful lot, just to cover the non-mesh bits.
