Default D3 PF - under tray, wheel liner and bits

Hi There,

On Sunday i went to the MK Ikea. Parked up, shopped, got back, pulled out and found the kerb that i'd parked the front end over was just a bit too tall. Guessing the suspension had settled and it being such a long beast i'd tucked it in!

Heading home after a bit I noticed some odd wind noise so pulled over and the drivers side under tray was hanging down. I lipped it back up and it was ok going home.

Yesterday I had to drive up to Yorkshire, was a funeral and i left a fair bit of spare time in the plans. About 50 miles out I noticed noise and pulled over. Threw a coat on the ground and found the passenger side had come down. I did the best i could in a smart suit, but after a mile or two i noticed the noise and pulled off at Lincoln and into a chain garage and quickly begged for help!

They put it on ramps and cut the front under tray off. It was off at the front anyway. Due to previous damage and that it didn't fit in the boot, it was a wet and grotty morning and I just wanted to get off I left the tray there to be scrapped!

Looking at the car today. The passenger wheel liner is also pretty damaged from flapping and I lost one of the fog light grills too.

So i need :

2005 FL D3 4.2 sport -
Front under tray
Passenger wheel liner
Passenger fog light grill

I could have been tempted in a front lower bumper, but it looks like that is all in one and despite something like a stone damage (cracked paint) it'll probably all clip back with a bit of TLC.

Any advice, part no's etc?


Ta,
Lee

The main undertray from Audi is hellishly expensive, around 300 (for the S8 anyway), but the wheel arch liners are surprisingly cheap - 17 when I got one of the fronts recently so it's worth phoning them just to get a starting price, or going in to the parts department so you can point it out on their screen.

When I've browsed through our forum sponsors' eBay listing, there are always a few undertrays and wheel arch liners available, so you know they will be genuine and get good service.

But there's always a few undertrays on eBay anyway, and plenty of new foglight grills.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for that.

I just popped the drivers side fog light thing off, with rather too much ease - 4E0 807 682 C

Doing an ebay search

Pair for 28 - Slight difference in the external rib around the light but if I replace both....and given there's a clip snapped on the drivers side it may be prudent. Now How bad are Chinese versions???

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pair-Fron...DPv:rk:17:pf:0


Also found

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-AUDI-...xwRv:rk:1:pf:0

49 for "an" under tray. It's aftermarket rather than genuine , but cheaper than damaged/repaired second hand ones

Wheel liners seem a little harder to find. Petrol so no intercooler vents (though one wonders if that would matter.

However Germany
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RADHAUSSC...Jm~J:rk:2:pf:0

for about 30 all in?

Which is why those of us with D2s tend to secure our fog-light grilles a bit more securely, considering how much they cost.

As for the Chinese versions, can't comment on the grilles, but the comments I've heard about stuff originating from there tends to run along the lines of 'not a perfect fit', 'plastics being a big hard' and 'plastics very cheap looking'.

In all honestly, anything that I've bought that has come out of China has never been 'cheap looking' or 'ill fitting'. I think it boils down to whether you want to risk the 30, and if they're cheap and nasty, you can at least let everyone here know to avoid them.

I had a D2 and yeah those fog light grills were a nightmare! The D3 ones are far more secure in normal day to day running and I recall despite cable ties my D2 ones going in a car park

I'm tempted to give the Chinese ones a go. The car has 175k and isn't a show model, but more of a work horse. It's hardly a pristine example to start with, they're low down and more conspicuous by the absence. Swapping the pair will balance out any slight style differences!
