    Sexy Brunette

    Hey People

    I'm just about to buy an Audi A4 1.8T Auto Convertible for the summer but before i do i need some information on some parts i want to buy for it.

    1. I'm going to buy 19" RS6 replica Alloy Wheels but i don't want them to rub so what offset and tires do i get?

    2. Where can i buy some chrome S4 wing mirrors from?

    3. If my car doesn't come with Xenon's can i just buy some and pop them in?

    Thanks in advance

    P.S: ive added some pics below of how i want my Audi to look.

    nice motor, i just got 1, in blue,
    i went for 18" r8 rep wheels, (from the good old ebay) they look cool and dont rub at all, theres a pic on the pix of your motor bit on here.
    my xenons where just a bulb replacment from the abov mentiond, and there cool as well.

    ok now then, the off ste for your motor is 38-45, but theres allways spacers, and the pdc is 112, well thats whats on my motor anyhow

    19" RS6 with an offset of 42 will cause no rubbing, thats what i'm running on mine. Some people put spacers on so it sits nearer to the arch, if you want that look try an offset of 35-38
    Tyre size you want is 235 35 19 or 225 35 19 if you want the stretched look of the tyre on the rim, i run 235 35 19 on mine.
    The S4 Chrome Mirrors i got some replica ones off ebay for 29, look good and just stick over your originals.
    The Xenon/HID lights, is a different matter, i bought 2, 8K hid kits for mine, the headlight set from HID'd direct cost about 60, and a cheap set from singapore for 30 delivered for my lower fog lights, i didn't like the yellow halogeon glow. You might want to replace your sidelights with led ones as well, it makes the front look miles better at night, if you want to see a pic let me know. Hope this helps

    8K HID Lights? Wow you may as well not bother as you hardly get any light on the road they are so blue? By comparison OEM is 4300 Kelvin.

    For 19" I would go with ET35 8J to avoid any problems and no need for spacers.

    Oh and none came with sLine badges on the front grille nor the rear of the car ;-)

    S-Line cabs are different to the saloon/avants, take a look at the bumpers for a start: hence the differing badge specs.

    HID's are pretty much a must have on this forum lol! Whilst they're still legal I've got 6000k but will go to 4300k soon with a view to getting more light output.

    I sprayed my mirrors Avus silver to match my (then) wheels. Cheap and effective. I was put off oem caps by people having theirs mirrors ripped off

    What are HID's are they aftermarket Xenons or are they OEM?

    Car looks nice Pabs! First S-Line I've seen on a 53 plate.

    HID's are High Intensity Discharge (gas) bulbs which come in an H7 fitment to fit in A4 headlights. Aftermarket xenon's if you like.

    Got this set off ebay, it was a lucky find as i got 5 wheels with brand new tyres for 550, i always like to have a full size spare, these are replica 19's with genuine centre caps. There are normally plenty on ebay some brand new with tyres, some without and some in need off tlc but could be worth it if you know a good refurb company

    When you say my side lights do you mean my indicators or the side of my headlights?

    your sidelights, if your putting xenons or getting a hid kit then definately change your sidelights for led, mine are only 4 led but will be changing them to either 9 or 15 led sidelights, i think quattrojames might have them, heres a pic of some 4 led sidelights, these are cheap ones of ebay i got 10 for 99p delivered.

    I've seen LED rears for the B7, but never the B6. Worth a look on Audizine, or TMTuning.com.

    For the LED front sidelights I'd recommend Ultraleds.co.uk from personal experience, search for "501 Tower".

    Pabs, that's a really nice car!!!! Shows how well the B6 has aged, doesn't look old at all. Excellent styling choices too, it just works very well.
