      Hey guys, I have a 2006 Lux 3.6 in Granite Green and I just bought the Votex side skirts and was wondering what you all thought on throwing a R-Line front clip on or just staying with the Votex? I'm looking for the best bang for my buck on the front clip and that would probably be the deciding factor.

      I eventually also would like to move over to dual exhaust on the rear and would want something that would match the rear clip pretty well.

      Any thoughts?

      If you want the best bang for ur buck I would return or cancel the order on the the votex sides (if that is still an option). The next step would be to purchase some hi def sides@~$200 and an rline front lip@~200

      Personally I don't really care for the votex sides. Also I prefer the votex front over rline

      Just My 2 pennies

      Track5tar is running that setup i suggested and it looks great!

      Imo:

      Your color car the Votex lip would look awesome. Or the ebay one.

      I've noticed the three VW kits (R/Votex/Hi-Def) all work together fairly well.

      Bang for Buck:

      R Line Front Valance $250
      High Def Side Skirts $200
      High Def Rear Bumper 4 Motion $250 (Clearance)

      My Personal Choice for my black car:

      R Line Front $250
      R Line Side Skirts $800
      R Line Rear Valance $540

      Prices like that it's not happening anytime soon.
      I'll do the front and dream about the rest.


      (thanks for posting some pics of that lip SD.)

      Thanks for the pictures and input, guys! I got the Votex sides for $250 shipped not yet painted. We have a body shop at my dealership and they do great work which I'll get the hook up on big time. I got 20" wheels from a guy that traded his CC lease in. The wheels wouldn't have been my first choice by any means, but for $600 for all four with about 10k miles left on the tread of the tires, it was kind of a no brainer. Can I get some links for inexpensive front clips? I like the look of all of them but I think I may just go with the Votex front as well.
