Anyone try the Cupra lip with the kerscher? or any other recommendations? ive seen the lltek carbon fiber lip, but its pricey.

Also, what does it mean to shave the vents. I got my kerscher replica, and the vents were not cut out. is this normal or does my body shop need to actually cut through and open the vents? apologies if this is a noob question.

Shaved vents means deleting them. (Filling plastic/fiberglass over the fish gills)

Cupra R will fit with some slight modifications.

could this work too? considering its just bolt on, i feel like it would make a good fit. the bumper has a center indent that looks like it would match up perfectly with this one from lltek

Kerscher is already a fiberglass bumper vs polyurethane. With that being known, I would have gone the ebay route also. But as A4Rob mentioned, the Seat Cupra R lip modded to fit would look nice. Many Audi owners do that (B5, B6, B7, B8, A4, S4, A3, etc).

there was a picture of the cupra r lip under a kerscher bumper in the for sale sections.... i literally have too many pictures and cant find it right now, maybe a mod can bring it up, it looks pretty good, but myself at sport ride height it would be low

i am on my way out of town for the weekend, but when i get back, i will try and find that seller in my ebay sellers list. he sells a lot of fiberglass and polyurethane bumpers for euro and japanese cars, he also carried an rs4 rep front bumper for our b5s, but i am in love with the kerscher look. i think i got it for around 200, with 75 additional for grey hound shipping. my only dissappointment was that grey hound dropped the bumper, and now there is a 3in. crack in the middle that needs to be repaired, and grey hound hasnt sent me any info on my damage claim. but besides that, a pretty good transaction with the ebay seller, got it in a little over a week.

That would be great. Thanks I've been been trying to find a kerscher rep for some time now so I can shave the gills

so for those that did not shave the vents, did you leave them as is, or did you cut them out for function?
