    My proposed mods - what do you think?

    I had thought about bodykits etc, but its just too much money so here are the planned mods

    S4 Avus wheels - Ł525
    S4 upper & lower grill - Ł80
    Colour coding - Ł250
    sell old 162 wheels - -Ł200

    Total cost Ł655 ish

    I know I will have to cut the lower S4 grill to fit but should be OK.. I think it changes the car and looks good for the money...maybe even a couple of s-line badges too.

    Before



    After (Hopefully)

    why thank you, don't want to spend the guts of Ł1600 on a car than I will have for about 2 years, I think the lower S4 grill looks good and matches the top well, - close up pic



    It will take a bit of dremeling but I thknk will work well..

    I think the lower grill looks wierd, Id go for the Black S4 grill instead of the chrome. Someone has posted theirs up on here, Same as yours but with the darker grill.Looks spot on
    Its a shame you didnt have the chrome window surrounds then I reckon the grill would have looked more in place...but hey, Ive got my Grill coming too so maybe it will look the same on mine.hmmm. The other mods you have planned are a Yes from me though.

    It does match the top one but looks odd with the fog light grills.

    Maybe its just me.

    Grills

    I had black upper and lower grills on my previous A4, but thought they might look a bit weird on the avant due to the chrome roof bars..

    I did like the blackout front, as I didn't have chrome windows aswell.

    S4 Avus wheels - Ł525


    Looking good, I have seen both S4 grills on a Silver Avant and they looked very well so I would go for it, where did you get the weels for that price and did they include tyres?
    P.S. I fiited a S4 badge as well but I removed the 4 so its just an S badge as the S-line does not fit the S4 grill.

    All you need to do next is fit a 4.2 V8, sports suspension. chrome mirrors, a rear badge and you virtually have the real thing.

    I've got some original Audi (S-line) lower Door Blades if you/anyone is interested. Not really sure what they are worth?

    Currently in Phantom Black with a few little marks. Can be painted any colour to match your car though.

    Sensible offers guys!
