    Hi, I've got a 53 plate A6 saloon(C5). From looking at the current and past audi models the front bumper looks quite plain and boring, not very sporty in the slightest. Without buying a expensive horrible looking bodykit from europe what are my options?

    I'm not looking for a chavvy look, far from it but a sporty 'look'. I've seen on the U.S forum that people have fitted a flexible rubber strip to the bottom of the bumper. Some A3/A4 owners add the LCR splitter.

    Has anybody tried anything or got any ideas?

    Yes, I had the LCR splitter fitted and for only £20 ish, it was worth it, just needs trimming and the ends when fitting.
    took it off when we shipped the car to Oz and not got round to refitting it yet.

    cheers Watty! I've got a better idea on how the splitter looks now.

    That is a funky looking A6 you got!

    I fitted a LCR splitter to my RS6 bumper:

    Then during a bit of work smoothed it in:
