    Thought i would try somthing a bit different today.
    took a standard set of black casings and rubbed them down a bit, gave them a few coats of Plasti Dip, they were looking sh*t hot, then i gave them another coat .
    Anyway this is how they turned out, and tbh they are growing on me with the textured look, i will stick them on at some point to see how they look. They feel like they are wrapped in laytex now with that stuff.



    Good thing about Plasti Dip is that if i decide i dont like it it just peels straight off.

    Aye, I would have though that they would work with the contrast against Silver and the blacked out grillle etc....

    Least you gave it a go. huh.

    Counting the days till your wheels go on? Mine go on Saturday but wont be quite as spectacular.

    This looks great so far, the rear diffuser effect is simple and works well.
    Im thinking about removing the rear wiper also - what size grommet did you use?

    If you want to know what your wheels look like on a Votex Avant, ill happily try them on for you

    thanks guys,

    Its actually a cavity box grommet, they only come in 2 sizes and it was the larger of the 2, i think it was the 20mm one.

    Tyres are being fitted tomorrow, so maybe the weekend to mount the wheels on the car.

    Cheers James, yeah I came across this last week - looks like im going to have to do this at some-point (will wait until I have a bulb out)
    Thing is - on the last service receipt from Audi (Jul 2011) They charged £190 to replace the plinth! Which looks like it was never done.

    Keys in well with the grille and LCR up front, I like I think, you could maybe put a front / side angle on to give more of a clue as to how it looks. I think I like em Ross it's looking really good...

    I did my rears too. There's a guide in the DIY sticky I think.

    What did you use to give the black circle around the drill holes?

    Looks fantastic mate, I bet you enjoyed bolting those wheels on after the long wait!

    Where did you order your LED sidelights from? I have Osram Nightbreaker headlight bulbs, these would complement well i reckon

    Thanks.

    The Led sidelights came from this ebay shop, they were meant for VW Tiguan Touareg Touran Golf MK5 , Yeah im running Nightbreakers too and they look fine.

    Headlights bulbs, LED bulbs for car items in Mylitco Auto Accessories Aftermarket Parts store on eBay!

    The wee black things came with the leds

    Same thing as this but it may depend on the size of your leds.
