    Hi all,

    I was looking at buying this car but I have found a newer one with a lot less miles on it but it has the standard bumpers on it.
    I would like to source the same lower splitters and skirts if i could.

    Ok cheers. Thought it would be a standard option.
    Anything simular on the market. I like the subtle oem look.

    Thanks

    The only OEM kit i'd be fitting is the S4 stuff.

    The Votex kit looks weird, especially the side skirts which are color coded but they leave on the black rubber door trims. Looks really stupid.

    Facelift S4 rear bumper looks similar to the votex but better executed
    S4 sideskirts actually fit the car properly and come with matching color coded door blades etc etc.

    Votex looks fine on a black car or one with colour coded strips

    Aye you notice it less on a black car, but the S4 skirts are tidier!

    I fitted the S4 front to mine yeh. They're fairly pricey to get hold of though, whereas the rears and sides arent too bad.

    S4 front is horrendous to get hold of. If you do manage to find one they are pricey, only one I could track down the breaker wanted 450 for it. I bottled it and fitted a Facelift front bumper which will have the LCR splitter added in the next week or so.

    I was lucky and bought mine for 50. I needed to repair it but repaired and painted it was under 300. Whoop etc. I am slightly regretful of fitting it as I'm not driving an s4 and as such would love to have something that identifies it as a tqs like the dtm in b7

    Front bumper looks to me like an RS4 replica. Same that I am working on now.
    Unfortunately, there is no way to fit stock bumper over my IC even with cutting shedloads of it.
    Last time I've seen an S4 bumper on ebay was £300 and in different color.
    Bought a RS4 replica for £30 cracked in few places which should do well for the track car.
    Just some fiberglass and filler and should be fine.

    I'm amazed your cooler doesnt fit, theres a huge space between the bumper and the radiator on my track car.

    Top of the bumper fits no problem. It is the bottom part that doesn't. Because of the size of IC (thickness and height) I would have to pretty much cut out all the bottom part of the bumper. Even this Rs4 style one just fits after cutting out few pieces. Can't get the IC higher because the bonnet wont close

    If you're still in the market, i have a rear bumper fitted with a Votex rear spliter and a pair of Votex side skirts new in the box, drop me an pm for prices... Bumper will need painting in your own color and the skirts are in factory primer... They do look good on lowered cars though...
