    RS6 wheels are truly the most suited for the 8P without a doubt, everytime I see them they never fail to please IMHO

    Any chance of a rough breakdown on the cost and parts involved? Thank you

    Looks brilliant by the way!

    I've got a red split grille and it's starting to tempt me.

    Conversion looking great mate. Would love to get round to doing mine but it always comes down to the money. As for the carbon wrap on the mirrors i think it might be a little to much, i'd look at getting the fogs before anything else. Great job.

    Not to sure if my wheels are reps or not! Think they are, prices range have a look on ebay. Also the springs i got off ebay for around 120 but they go for about 150

    Strange your on 50mm Eibachs, I am too and mine sits a lot lower on the front that yours, about the same on the back

    Your wheels are fooked up too mate, you have 3 replicas and 1 genuine. The genuine one is on the drivers side rear. I bet it looks weird from the back as the reps stick out 10mm more than the genuines!!

    Ye you needed the bonnet plus from reading on here no need for the slam pannel, just cut 20mm by about 30cm off the bottom of each side and fit like a glove!

    Haha good spot!!! The wheels were like that when i bought them! (women driver) I HATE kerbed wheels!! And the reason for the genuine one is that girlfriend (now ex haha) hit a pot hole and damged one so lucky my mate had a spare, again KURBED but will do for now
