    What year is your car? By the sounds of your description you may already have the sline rear splitter :S

    The front bonds onto the front bumper along with two screw brackets under neath - I didnt get these with mine as mine was salvaged but i made makeshift ones!

    ok - so, the 2004 does not come with a standard skirt

    also, what is the part number for your votex skirt? the 5 door version will not fit a 3 door or vice versa

    i think the 3dr one is 8P007""""" from memory but could be totally wrong :S I have a couple of threads i think about it if you hit the search button

    It should be a straight fit with bonder and screws - I chose not to bother with the votex rear splitter as I did not like it :S you might be btter off sourcing a 2006/7 rear bumper which has had a facelift and splitter

    If you get your votex rear splitter from audi, it will come with the correct braketry and instructions

    Also, if you order from audi, they will ask you your chassis number so you will get the correct splitter

    can you still purchase the kit or parts of it direct from audi? as I am struggling to fine the front splitter on ebay etc.

    No the original skirt should come off, its a pian in the arse to get off too. Its possibly easier to remove the whole rear bumper clip the bottom bit off then clip the new one on and refit the bumper. As boydie says make sure you get the correct one as theres a few and they dont all fit between the two 8P shapes.
