I have just bought a front valence. It is a genuine VW item and looks very, very similar to the Anni one.

It says Autotest and has a VW part number - 1J0 071 609 underneath.

Anyone know what type it is - Votex ??? Sorry no pics yet.

Paid ?70 which I thought was a decent price.

It looks almost identical, except that the Anni one has an indented section acrooss the centre of the base and this is just straight across.  Anni ones are now getting very difficult to source at a reasonable price and second hand are virtually non existant !!!  So I am well chuffed TBH.

I think it looks more suttle as it doesn't have those bars in the centre hole if you get what i mean.. also i prefer the vortex sideskirts to the anni ones aswell as there more flatter...

Definately liking that one. How much are they from dealers - if you can still get them. I'll keep my eyes open for one of them now!

dubswitch, where did you source the valence?
I got it second hand mate.
Nice one Dubs, can't wait to see it on.

My new front end should be on in the next week or so.

Perhaps I should keep hold of my Anni valance for now if they are getting rarer (and of higher value!)

What front end you fitting then mate ?? I should have shut up about the Anni valence then I might have pursuaded you to sell it to me !!![;)]

If you change your mind, you know where to come. Although I like the one I have, I still prefer the Anni one. You have a PM mate.

Hi mate, it came as a factory fitted option when the car was new. I'm not sure if a VW parts dept would still be able to obtain these though? I reckon if they could they would be expensive.
