Yes, the rear is different, but the sides are the same. I'll put up some pics in a bit.

Unless that recessed area is deep enough for that lower diffuser. I might be looking at the picture wrong. What IS interesting is I came across the diffusors, which are still available. The description says "from Votex" but the part is stamped "MS-Design". So maybe it is a W8 Votex rear (brb, putting foot in mouth)

Here are the actual pictures the seller sent me before I bought the item. My store room isn't this messy but I'm working on it!

The part number looks like 3B0-071-810B but if it is 3B0-071-610B then that is the same part number as the Votex rear skirt.

Yeah, I took a look and it is a 6. This is the only W8 rear that I've ever seen, all others only have one cut-out for the exhaust.

Not much really, just the body line on the side to match the side skirts. You can look at cars with the rear Votex kit, it's basically the same.

I'm still wondering if anyone has seen a rear bumper cover like this one before.

Well now, as of Oct 3 I will have my car for one year.

Today was the first day it has failed me. Not sure what's going on but it will not go into gear. It's in neutral and with the engine running it will not go into gear. Sometimes but not always, I can get it in 1-6 (not R) with the engine off.

Just more time and money. The only thing on this car I'm scared of is the engine.
