Default Front chin spoiler

Is there any front lip spoiler available for the D3's like Votex had for the A6's? I had one installed on my A6 (see below) and loved the subtle difference it made.

Nothing subtle about that difference.

I spoke to Fiercespeed and they are asking $755 for it! Before i go ahead and order this thing do you guys recommend any other mods that would be considered more worthwhile for that kind of money? keeping in mind I would still need to have it painted and installed.

I can think of hundreds of things to do with $1,000 besides that.

But if it's what you want and you have cash on hand go for it.

The spoiler does make that A6 look better, but you would have to be very careful not to gouge or crack it over dips, speed bumps, and parking stops.

Go for it and post pictures!

It may fall under the, "If you have to ask, you can't afford it," category.

I never contacted them because I preferred the look of several others better (one of them posted by mishar). And, after looking at it a very long time, and comparing it to others, I thought the PPI version looked a little too much like fiberglass that hasn't quite been finished off very well.

I like the whole idea of a chin spoiler revamp though. It really adds a lot to the overall look of the car. Someday I want to pull the trigger on this mod. I'm also looking at deck lid spoilers and rear window spoilers. I just can't find the exact look on those either. I really want (it's just me) any of these to be "understated" like the overall look of these beauties.

I really appreciate that so many members have posted images and links to these items (here and other threads). I'm a visual kind of critter, and they help me a lot.

Default you can convert the 2005.5 and later to the S8 bumper

or the A8 W12 version, this a whole different catagory of undertaking and cost, so it's not an direct answer to your inquiry... just offered as information

Currently on sale at OEMplus
