In regards to this Oettinger front lip:

(credit to audiworld's body kit thread for the pic)
Is this still availabe anywhere? It's not on oettinger's page at all. Can't seem to find it or a knockoff on any of the common sites, via the seach (yes, clowns, I live by my own words.. use the search), or on google.
Anybody have any input?

Some places to purchase the lip:

That'd be cool if you could check with him. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Yeah, i'd guess a place that deals Techart and Novitec Rosso would be kinda pricey..

Re: Oettinger front lip (hoveraudi)

Excellent.
AND... a little late night rant:
I see a lot of pictures of b5 a4s with side skirts put on over the stock skirts. Does anyone else besides take pause everytime you see that to thing "gee, whoever did that must have ridden the short bus to design school, becuase that's about as aestehetically pleasing as a girl with a rediculous cellulite problem?". I've seen ghetto civic owners create a more attractive presentation using home-depot garden edge. Seriously.
If you don't think the same way, then you should have your head examined.
And if you did that to your a4, well, let's not go there. Let's just say you have a lot to learn, and maybe a car that Mugen and Buddy Club makes parts for would better suit you.
Leave the audis to the guys with a clue.
Ooooo kay then. End of rant. Seacrest out.

Re: Oettinger front lip (pagermancarlover)

Thats exactly what I was on about. I hate that! It looks sooooo stupid. I've seen a car driving around like that, and a ton of the places that sell kits have shots like that.
I don't get it!!!

It doesn't even "flow" with the rear valence. I agree, somebody needs to police that kind of ****. I'm going to start a reality TV show about issues like that. It will be called:
Queer Eye for the Bodykit Guy
I will go around from city to city and find aesthetically hideous cars with body kits and re-work them into clean, flowifull (if thats even a word) pieces of driving beauty.
I'm calling FOX...... its a done deal.

Re: Oettinger front lip (Convallo)

You can start with people who put excessively large front bumpers that look like they hit a tree on ther vehicle. Heh heh.

Re: Oettinger front lip (robbyb413)

For the record, I got an email back on the lip. They're asking about $600 plus shipping.
Sucha shame. It's a nice lip, but it's not worth that much for somethign thats gonna last me 2 years if I'm lucky in Boston. I dont get why nobody has a knockoff. It looks hot on the car on PES's page.

Re: Oettinger front lip (hoveraudi)

Bump because a lot of Oettinger questions are coming up, and this answers them all. Please use the search!
If the regualrs could please request from the mods (I specifically mentioned it to Peter) that we get it into the FAQ it would go a long way towards helping people with questions on it and getting all the info centralized.

Re: Oettinger front lip (robbyb413)

Thats actually the nicest front lip for the b5 IMO. It flows perfectly with the front bumpers lines. Somebody should make a decent replica of it cause asking $600 is

Re: :)Stever-Strike:)

anytime i paint emblems, I sand the hell out of them (really gotta have at it or else it fish-eyes) then use matte black paint, so its like a flat finish with that soft semi-gloss look. That would give you the look that set of rings has. They make a spray paint for pastic to that supposedly bonds better than normal spray paint too.
If you want your black shiny you could also use a gloss paint or hit it with some clear coat.
