    the conversion took the best part of 6 months including the repair, at the time i was the first person to facelift the car encountering all the fitting differences waiting on parts from germany etc, happy with it overall ran the car for a good while now approaching 2 years almost no significant issues

    They were recived from a breakers out a s4 coupe 4.2 beast not sure on what had happened to it but it wasnt in a good state, seats will clean up fine though, not my first time dabbling in this stuff

    nah im trying to keep the alu as a trim only to the interior, ie switches etc ive got a lot planned but as the car is my daily i can only sacrifice bits at a time once i lay down a deposit and move into a flat thats when the good stuff happens

    a4 trim will be attached to the mirror switch once i take the door cards off probably next weekend as this im busy with 4 wheel alignment if i can get it booked

    That was in a right state!

    Reckon its been worth doing all that over buying a mint one? financially that is.

    how on earth somebody allowed those seats to get into that condition is mental
