      I know it as the Votex fron' MS design. theres a thread on audisport.net that shows you where to do some slight trimming on the rear or some thing like that. thinking of smoothing it all in though when i get it painted
      Do you know what grilles for that lower?

    6. 07-18-2012 02:32 PM #41
      havnt got around to install it yet. its the GMBH rear

      Well some thing i didnt expect to do' The car is currently back on the RS4's. Sold the RH 3.6 Speedlines and now have some.................

      BBS CH's
      18"
      8.5J all around.

      Always wanted some and there one of my favourite wheels even though they quite common now due to the amount of Replica's floating around

















      Plans are' Red centre caps and BBS Valves and caps.

      Received my spoiler today' Its not fitted correctly here was just to take are few quick pics' the bolts either end was stopping the back to fit correctly as the spoiler is bolt on!

      Today fitted the BBS CH's Totaly forgot about spigot rings. So went to Revolution @ Team Valley seems they a direct part and not the same as the plastic ones you get' they ally or some thing and have retaining clips or some thing. So waiting on BBS spigot rings direct from them.

      yeah they are stock. i seriously would but looked into this before. shipping is too expensive. i also looked for the cost of a tailgate and that was silly

      shipping headlights to the UK don't cost too much. Your European lamps cost us about $1000 USD here

      Been looking to an alternative for HIDS as not really a fan' So' Received my Bulbs today. Choose these as they Highly recommended, they from T8ups over on Audi-sport from EM tunning. sent next day and are only £8 for the pair. Must say im pretty impressed. Pictures dont do them justice to be honest.



      Heres one fitted to the Passenger side compared to the standard driver' I also have LED side lights baring in mind. like i say pictures dont show the really effect. they proper white!




      And both fitted



      Also for over a year every night searched the usual Forums and ebay sites for the Votex grills for the bumper i have' with not a sniff on Saturday one popped up which was brand new in the packaging for £11.50 delivered so snapped it up' Just need 2 more now Tempted to just buy them new but been tight and £140 for the last 2 im undecided.



      Hopefully Get to go and get some paint tomorrow and paint the spoiler i have and fit Saturday.

      Looks super clean man! I always find the small stuff makes a huge difference. But like someone said in a previous post, get a cupra r lip on there, the b6 platform looks dirty with them.

      Ive got a Cupra R spoiler in the garage along with Votex front bumper. GMBH rear bumper and sides to fit its just finding the time etc

      Poor pictures i know! was in a rush.

      Painted the spoiler on Saturday, Ran out of time to fit it for the VAGCars meet Sunday but managed too today. Not too bad i dont think. minght take the threads off and bond it on at a later stage. also need a new third brake light as this one is so annoying asits chipped on the edge abit.

      Plans tomorrow fit the rear bumper






    18. 09-27-2012 01:18 PM #54
      Fitted the GMBH rear today' just quick pictures. needs a wash etc. Need to get my side bits sorted now and get some Votex grills ordered for the front.

      Also wanting to make my own exhausts' and to finish the rear off some 100mm Exhaust tips will sort that out.




    19. 10-03-2012 01:31 PM #55
      Bought a very very rare Votex Air Damn for my Votex front bumper. couldnt beleive it when i seen it' Mega rare' so my front bumper should look like this with the air damn fitted in the middle.



      Also the Votex front and side bits i have are booked in for next
      wedensday morning to be painted so should have everything done for the next VAGCars meet

    20. 10-05-2012 12:30 PM #56
      Ah missed my delivery for my Votex grills' think they may have been sent back to Audi too will find out tomorow.

      Received my new G23 Keyring' Scene and Anal i know!




    21. 10-06-2012 10:37 AM #57
      Received my Grill and clips today' So dont know what the hell is stuck at the post office undelivered ?


    22. 10-12-2012 03:53 PM #58
      Received my votex front air dam today heres a quick picture to ilistrate. Think speed humps maybe a pain now.



      Also ordered a new key as the main one is getting tatty. A RamAir filter and going to make my own heatshield.

    23. 10-18-2012 12:30 PM #59
      Got my Ram air filter today. Unsure weather to make a nice metal pipe push it towards the front of the car and make a heatshield and intake all in one. or just make a heatshield like the Jabbasport one i had on the leon with the standard air intake to match.


    24. 12-02-2012 01:55 PM #60
      Well no real update' Getting the paint and bumper fitted after winter now as makes alittle sense to me' Ordered a new 3 button flip key a while back and they sent 2 out which was alittle result. still yet to transfer over' Have no real go lately but if this week isnt busy thinking of starting to make the induction kit i have in mind using the Ram Air filter.

      Only picture what i have from today' Painted the Cam covers' Asked for VHT crackle red to be sent down and they sent smooth, Couldnt be bothered so just used it and was happy with it. The picture looks alittle odd as used an Iphone and had a flare light on so doesnt look really red like it does. Also managed to get all the new Pulley's Roller's and tensioners on along with New metal impellar water pump. Just the belt to get on now and that will be Monday


    29. 03-12-2013 02:40 PM #65

      received my new pair of wings this morning' 5am heard the letter box go. half 6 went down stairs to find a note' sorry didnt want to disturb you, your audi wings are under your car on the drive.


    31. 03-15-2013 02:52 PM #67
      didnt get much done today' Fitted All four new front upper arms with new Track rod ends' Replaced all the bolts with new ones too' Also quickly under sealed the inside of the new wings.




    32. 04-22-2013 01:50 PM #68
      Well at the weekend finally got my wings back after a month' bad experiance' favours just dont work out.

      Not that it took a month just to get those back. hasnt fetched the paint / thinners and everything needed back either yet as i need them as some one else i know is doing them. the other main problem is they have been painted and the lip has been masked off when it should have been painted so going to have to blend that in myself

      Bonnet and bumper to go now
