    Door Blades - anyone bought from these guys?

    Has anyone bought from the guys listed below?

    They are somewhat cheaper than from Audi - do they actually fit / take paint okay?

    They're fibreglass copies hence the price. Bear in mind shipping & good old import tax i wouldnt bother personally, save up a little more & get a proper set!

    Mmmm, good point, thanks!

    So, see link below - but how come A4 S-line door blades at 219 are cheaper than S4 door blades at 166? What is the difference - can they both be fitted to my 2001 A4 and painted?

    Yep they both fit and I like the S4 ones better, look more meatier!
    Can be painted with the right prep etc.
    I might even grab some..Didnt realise they were at that price!

    If you google for a pic of an s-line and then for a pic of an s4 u can see that the s4 ones stick out a fair bit all along their length where the s-line ones taper in and are more subtle. Strange that they r cheaper though!

    you could still paint them but they will need plastisizer mixed with the paint so it can flex

    no chris 2 x screws at each end of the blades inside the door then they just slide of, backwards towards the rear of the car, thats original door blades anyway. i dont like the s4, ones either they are a bit pointy for me

    Did you colour-code them first, or just put them straight on?

    my A4 with S4 door blades

    I have just had the S4 door blades, ABT front bumper S-line rear bumper and ABT rear spoiler fitted.
    I like the bigger door blades, they really highlight the car.

    It will be worth every penny and you get more blade for your cash compared to S-line ones.

    Prefer the subtlety of the s-line ones personally, the S4 ones do stick out a lot & possibly could cause injury to wildlife and/or pedestrians as you drive past!! I wonder if they give aerodynamic downforce at all??!!
