obvisouly theres the cut out, and the towing eye does not line up. that was the only problem i had. when removing the old one, remember theres some small black screws in the rear wheel archs, remove them and gently pull the old one off.

I know I may have to mod it a bit but is it the same skirt to look at or different in any way to the one I have,The reason I ask is I was going to paint mine but if the 4 motion one is different(sportier) I would get one and paint that

Nobody seem s to have mentioned that the 4motion rear valance is different not just by way of exhaust cut out, but also the depth and shape!!  look at the photo... all 'normal' valances are more rounded and shallow. I smoothed and painted mine too... link in my signature to pictures.

just phone my dealer and the 4 motion one retail at ?79.99 including vat!
Total rubbish fella, they are trying to rob you, or they have quoted you for front AND rear together.

I bought one from stealers only a month or so ago and with trade discount of about 15% was around ?35.

I am confused now!

I thought the 4motion one was colour coded, is it not?

Or is it in primer and you need to have it painted?

Just to confirm 4motion valance, comes UN painted only. I believe it is the same unit for Golf and bora at the back, and know for a fact that the front 4motion valances are identical for bora/golf, and again only UNpainted. Trust me if I had been able to get away without all the effort of smoothing prepping and painting I would have!![:S]

Erm, no, i have to put you right there mate.

It just so happens i bought a Golf 4motion rear valance for my Bora and it was a tad too short (about 6") [:D]

hence the uncertainty about the fitment on the rear, but the certainty with the front one. im right about the painting though...[;)]
