    The S4 badge would be my starting point, then splitter & stripe, after that it looks a clean car.

    Saw it on Autotrader or eBay and wondered what bit was from an S4 then laughed and moved on.

    I dont really see a problem with it?

    The splitter is actually quite smart, it seems to fit the car properly unlike some of the tat you see stuck to cars and the only thing letting it down is the color mismatch.

    The standard SE front bumper with its plastic boat-prow "splitter" looks much worse than that.

    Ok, the black bit looks a bit random, but each to their own. I hate silver cars and think they're f-in awful things, but many folk like them and happily buy them.

    Its certainly far from an abomination, and simply removing the vinyl from the bonnet would fix the worst part of it (though then you'd have more silver... so maybe you'd actually want to vinyl wrap the whole car in black instead!)

    As for the S4 badges, well some folk seem to love doing that for whatever reason, but they're easily peeled off!

    I think it is obviously a personal taste, I'm certain there will be many members cars on this forum (mine included) that may be considered as '' I wouldn't do that to mine!! ''.

    The bonnet is only a vinyl wrap, easily removed. I was going to wrap my bonnet in an England flag! Glad I didn't after the rather woeful performance. The S4 badges can again be removed and you might get a few quid for them! I like the B8 looking front end.

    I don't think the colour should be an issue, my Audi is atlas grey and it hides dirt really well, unlike black!

    Not my thing tbh, especially the false badging, which I don't get at all! But everyone to thier own.

    However the RS Clios I used to own, it was a bit of a running forum joke to take off the door 'bullets' (underneath the wing-mirrors as part of the bump strip) that had "2.0l 16v" on them and replace them with "1.2" ones.....so it looked like you has a seriously quick 1.2 litre engined Clio as you left people standing at the lights.....confuse the enemy and all that!

    I've seen that front splitter on the bay but decided my GmbH one was much nicer. AUDI A4 B6 8E FRONT BUMPER SPOILER / SKIRT / VALANCE | eBay

    I guess on an non GmbH car it might look better than the OEM trim one.

    Like the red bits on mine, most probably wouldn't think it looks any good, but I like it. At the end of the day that's all that matters really.

    Mine is Ebony Pearl Black......perpetually dirty!! I would have loved an Atlas or Dolphin grey Avant! Mine had all the spec I wanted but not the colour......I can live with it though!

    Well thats my point!

    IMO cars should be proper colors. Black, Blue, Red, Green, Yellow etc etc. Silver to me is just sort of bland and boring, as are the "colors" you get which are silver with a tiny splash of green or blue or whatever. That said, Gunmetal type colors i make an exception for, some of those look really smart with the right touches (dechromed, no silver wheels etc etc). But its just my opinion. I dont post threads showing silver cars saying "look how ugly this dungheap is!!!"

    The mods on that car are all fairly mild and i cant see it deserving a slating, other than for the silly S4 badging.

    Something like those B7 and B8 conversion bumpers on the other hand usually look bloody awful, and are beyond personal taste because they dont actually fit the car properly and the lines and contours end up all away to fk.

    I think we're all guilty of colour fobia dude. I can think of nothing better than a mint condition black quattro but keeping it clean.....

    Wouldn't have been that bad if the splitter was on a B7 but just does not suit a B6 at all, the B6 is too round for it

    Defo not to my fancy, looks like a Halfords write-off, but everyone to the own, and like others have said, a good spent on it and you would most likely make it look really nice, depending on what they have done to the insdie, cause if thats the outside, god knows wha go on inside!!

    No, not for me. Not sure stunning would be the word I'd use plus S4 badges don't make it an S4 replica! And I think the advertiser needs to go back to school and learn to spell (referbed, rap, handeling) and it says the wheels are genuine Audi, are they?
