Does it cover the stock lip, or do you have to modify the bumper. I was looking at mine the other day and it looks like it's molded into the stock bumper. The reason I ask is because ttstuff.com says there is no modification the the stock bumper; I don't see how that's possible.
Sorry if this is NOOB question, I've only had my car a couple of weeks.

Re: Quick question about the votex front lip..... (80020vr6)

It covers the lower part of the stock front fascia.
There is no modification necessary, but you do need to remove 2 screws on each side of the inner wheel well, and snap the chin spoiler over the existing egde.
also, the egdes that meet the bottom of the lower bumper need a good bead of some nasty glue that is supplied in the kit.
it's not an easy add-on, and once you have the glue on all the edges, it needs 2 people to lift it in place, and snap it over the edge.
then you will need to tape in in place to let it dry.Takes 24 hrs to glue and cure.
then in a year, it will release, and droop because the glue dried and came off.

Re: Quick question about the votex front lip..... (Jeff Bipes)

Thanks for the response. I guess I need some opinions on whether it is worth the purchase or not. Does not sound like you had a good experience. If you had to do it all over again, would you?
I'm assuming that the 3.2L lip is the entire bumper?

What I did was to completly integrate it to the OEM front fasica.
I bought a used, beat up front, and used some urethane 2-component glue to completely seal the whole contact point area.









completed the integration of the Audi Chin spoiler, sometimes called the 'Votex' spoiler.
This work started last fall, after getting a used, broken front fascia.
A lot of detail work to integrate this and not have it crack.
A lot of urethane-glue was used to fill the grooves around the grill opening and the license plate cover, as well as the chin spoiler.








The 3.2 front is the whole front, and costs about $1K

Re: Quick question about the votex front lip..... (Jeff Bipes)

That's definetly the way to go, but I don't have the patience or talent to pull it off. If I wanted to have a body shop do, I think I might as well get the 3.2.
Nice Job.
Anyone have experience with this?

I'm assuming it fits just like the votex front.

the 3.2 bumper is the whole front fascia, not a cover job. The cost is near $1K

That is a replica of the 3.2 front which goes on just like the votex.
