    i think your best bet other than dealers is ebay, although to be honest, do you really need one? Im yet to come across an audi more than 5 years old that still has the full under tray!

    Mine came off just after I bought it, those stupid single speed ramps in the middle of the road caught and cracked it, considering getting the council to pay for it...

    Is there any real point to having the underside tray? Does it quieten the sound of the car due to aerodynamics? Or does it protect the electrics whilst driving through puddles etc? Mines got a crack in it and just flaps around. MAkes me wonder if I should just bin it...?

    cheers!

    my main one has been gone for ages, but the arch liners are still in place. one of my arch liners took such a bashing when i bottomed out (sump removal!) that it broke off its mount, so is now zip tied up in place, it still hangs down a tad though, and catches on just about everything.

    Cheers guys, the only reason i need to replace it, is to stop the oil drips on the drive since it came off. otherwise i'm not bothered about it. I might have to bite the bullet and buy one from stealers as it can't find one secondhand.

    Thanks

    Wish i could i think the lump is getting on a bit ( done a fair few miles) so not sure where the oil is leaking from and it's not that bad the odd drip here and there, just means i have to keep cleaning the driveway. does anyone know if the VW undertray would fit?

    cheers

    I think its for aerodynamics for the purposes of fuel consumption and possibly to protect the sump maybe. (Quoted the wrong person! Was meant to be the person above, Long day...)
