It's the red one....

From what I can see - the side skirts are the same as the non-Gti votex kit - maybe too the rear valence.......the front is waaaay different however.

Anyone got any more info on this?

(the wheels are what I used to have - the 18" Votex Karthoums)

I prefer the white GTi by a mile to be fair.

That's exactly how I'd like a MkV GTi to look like on th exterior: white, 3 door and 18" wheels.

I do like the red but I'd have to see it in a 3dr and with GTI 18s. MKV GTIs without original wheels just look wrong IMO.

I know what you're saying Dog and it is afterall, your car.. just with my last GTI even, I put Santas on it and it did look well compared to the 16s Montreal IIs but I just think they look better OEM. Maybe if you had the VW 18s you would see what I mean - but I can see why you thought the 17s were too small for the car.

Its strange that they hav'nt been able to locate the part according to the part no I provided. The part no is 100% correct. As for the looks of the Votex valence,it's way more aggressive and much lower than the original GTI valence.I'm still waiting for feedback on the rear valence, so far all I have is this pic and a part no.

Check out this pic of the new Jetta with the Votex kit. The front valence is exactly the same as the Votex GTI valence.

The part no 1KM0716099AX according to the Votex site.

A bit like the BBS kit for the Mk II back in the '80's, I had one (GTi engineering Re 2000 16V) with the full kit and Ronal 15" wheels, thought it looked the business back then.

Now....a few years older and wiser, I prefer the un-modded look

Edit - just saw Foxy's groupbuy which includes the Votex kit...

http://www.uk-mkivs.net/forums/182989/ShowPost.aspx

I think I'll get the Votex kit and paint it black, I don't like the
laser blue GTI with blue bumpers... the black provides a nice contrast.

A quick opinion poll: any thoughts on whether it'll look good or not if
I get the Votex fron and rear valences and the Caractere sideskirts,
all in black? I think that'll look pretty cool... any thoughts?

Hold your horses right there. The Votex kit Foxy has got will NOT fit a
GTI. This is the problem and essentially what this thread is about!!!!

I can supply the 1KM.... Gti front Votex lip (Jetta), and the Gti / 4-motion Votex rear apron.

The combined price including delivery to me in the Uk is ?670.

The front lip alone - is around ?285, delivered to me.

Anyone interested - let me know.
