    S Line bumper on sport! Edited for better pics

    Finally after owning the s line bumper for 18 months I've got round to getting it painted and put on! I got a grill painted gloss black too. Here's some before and after pics. The wheels got sprayed anthracite colour. Can't remember the actual name if colour but it's similar.

    Pics uploaded straight from iPhone so not the best quality but you get the idea. Maybe gloss black mirrors next? Or leave it at that.

    Looks much better mate!
    Was you able to use your old fogs or did you have to purchase specific s-line ones?

    I bought some A4 foglights as they are the same as a3 s line fogs just cheaper. Although I forgot the a4 fogs use H11 bulbs and the old sport dogs are H7 so I'm going to have to cut the wires and make up some sort of connector.

    Thanks I think it looks nice and subtle.

    Coilovers are JOM's £180 new from DPM performance off Damian. Too bloke and the ride is perfectly usable. I've done about 3k miles on the so far not a single problem.

    The colour was anthracite. Wheels were curbed so had them acid dipped to remove all paint and other contaminants. Curbing took out and filled to smooth finish then powder coated.

    No problem at all I paid £200 but that did include removing curbing marks on all 4 alloys and re balancing.

    I'm going to be totally honest I can't remember what I paid for the bumper as it was over 18 months ago on eBay. I had to buy the fog light surrounds from Audi directly and then bought the fog lights off eBay (non genuine) for an A4. Then I needed to buy H11 bulbs and some H11 plugs that I'll use to match up to my sport fogs wiring loom.

    The front s line bumpers are the same for hatchback and sportback but the rears are totally different.

    Grill was from eBay. It's a non genuine aftermarket part and I had it painted gloss black. It came in a Matt black colour but didn't like that. Try searching a3 a line grill or s3 grill. Think I paid £50 delivered

    Love that colour, works really well with dark grill, wheels, etc.

    Looks like it could go a bit lower though

    Nice although personally think the black grill cheapens the car. If it was black chrome outer edge to keep it toned down from chrome would work but not sure they exist.

    The rears are as low as they can go although the adjuster is still in situ. I could remove that to go a further 10-15mm I reckon but I often have people in the back so doubt it'll be practical :-)

    I think you can get chrome outer edge with a gloss black grill itself although in general the whole plastic chrome effect I think looks a bit tacky with darker wheels. Just doesn't look right. I think it's down to too many colours on a car with dark wheels, chrome outer on grill, black grill then colour of a car. I was going to have a lack Audi badge on but decided against it to break the grill up a bit.

    Thanks for all your input. I'm wondering whether to go gloss black on the mirrors but not to sure.

    Yea definitely keep the AUDI rings on the grill, breaks up the front end nicely.
