    Thanks for the referral. PM's exchanged

    p.s. Mine are OEM and not replicas. If you want replicas then I've also got some RS6 style wheels

    keep an eye out on the A3 forums... I got some from a S3 driver who'd bought an OEM set in error (didn't realise that the A4 and A3 had different PCD's)...

    They were on my short-list and a set of 5 just cropped up at a good price...

    B7 RS4's are very nice, but really overdone and too many reps out there.
    New RS6's are also nice, but again - lots of reps
    BBS RX2's / similar (see Filthy Rich's) were also on the list, but I was after the OEM look...

    Looks spot on mate. Is your look complete now or do you have anything else up your sleeve?

    Thanks Marc - I'm pretty much done on the exterior now... it was always going to be a fairly discreet sporty OEM-look that I was after, only things "missing" if i'm taking my cue's from other S-Line / S / RS / R-cars are the chrome mirrors, which I'm not THAT keen on and would be a waste on a silver car and I guess the S-Line door trims, which are vaguely on the cards, but will be an opportunistic purchase rather than planned (e.g ready-painted silver ones going cheap on eBay ) - I'm not spending 300 + painting and fitting on that sort of thing...

    Interior(as per my sig): is still in progress, but now at a very leisurely pace... I'm on the look-out for a colour DIS (TDI), which is VERY rare since B7's and S4's donor cars are out of the equation and 500+fitting for the new parts is just too steep... and I'm saving up for the full Freeview and something like an iPod video line-in, next March, if not before

    I might give the clear tail-lights another spin (now that I have the S-Line kit on the car), but they just never looked like they belonged...

    Worth a try with the S-Line kit added though for sure. You said they were an easy swap, so why not take some pics of both and do another poll

    very easy swap... 5mins for both sides with my little computer electric screw-driver (electric and fast, but not torquey enough to cross-thread / damage anything) - was just gonna get the car clean first!

    James did a rather cracking guide to doing these yourself, but I agreee, they'll probably get a little lost on a silver car.

    You mean the sill protectors? They are pretty pricey TBH.

    As James said get some pics up. Personally I think your standard ones are nicer. Maybe even a very light tint would suit the silver?!

    maybe the light tint - the pics of the car - pre S-Line kit are the Hella ones with silver rather than red indicatior surrounds, but looked too silver IMO.

    RS4 RARB is on the cards too (had forgotten about that) only 75, but just need the time to fit it...

    RE the TV: just plenty of time sitting around in traffic / waiting for the missus... so something like that would be nice

    Hey guys thanks for the help and pointers!! as Scotty said we're in contact so hopefully we can strike a deal!
    Lostbok i agree, the s line's on Filthy Rich's as superb, they are top of my list.... well would be if 19"s and coilovers were not a sure fire way of ensuring my 5 month old son never sleeps in the car again!!!

    eBay... ad has ended now... could always PM him....

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Mint-Audi-Avus...0721168005r430

    600 for a set of 5, but wrong spec (S8) tyres... probably get 100-200 back on those though... more if they're in good nick: those much be 600 worth new!

    Need to see the refurb job up close to see if they're need another going over though...

    Hey thanks Lostbok, those D2 S8 wheels are so nearly the same but i don't think the thinner spokes don't look quite as good as the B6 S4's, super picky i know. As S4marsh said they have more a B5 look to them!!

    no worries... jsut figured that they did look a LOT like mine:




    I just figured it was the higher profile tyres on those that were making them look different....

    I think you're right, the design of the wheel is the same surely?

    600 for 5 with new tyres isn't a bad price tbh.

    just a shame they're the wrong size tyres.... the 4 main tyres are Hankook Ventus V12's, so about 500 (new) in S4 spec - pretty sure at LEAST the same price in S8 spec?

    they're 18" and 45 profile (plus the 245width), so too big, yep!

    245 with 40 profile would probably just about okay....

    oppps... i never actually realised that Hankook were a 'premium' tyre brand, i had thought they were more of a 'ditchfinder', i practically gave some away a while back!!!

    The D2 S8 wheels are a slightly earlier design, on the 8 from 2000-2002 i think and the main way to tell the difference is the outer part of the rim, the spokes don't go right to the edge unlike the B6 S4's. Very subtle i know!! but i think it makes the s4's look bigger?

    s3tle - I stand corrected... yep - good pic to illustrate the point... spokes are very slightly thinner on the S8 wheels and the indents at the end of each spoke are deeper on my S4 wheels than those on the eBay ad...

    Hankook are relatively unknown in the UK, but definitely not ditch-finders... I've got them on my 16's, albeit on 205 width that the previous owner cheap-skated with (should be 225mm wide)... but they're pretty reasonable, although I've not done THAT much drivign with them (only had 'em on for 3k before getting the 18's + T1-R's)...

    Lostbok - Have you thought about some spacers to bring your back wheels out a bit or is it just the photo??

    Juss - I know what you mean - the S4 wheels are already 10mm further out than the stock ones (and that can be seen), but I thought they would look further out than that...

    after a major headache with spacers last time, I'm giving them a miss unless some absolutely land on my doorstep!

    just having a look at it this morning again and the offset defintley looks a but lower (further out) in theflesh than in that particular photo.

    distance shots: driveway is a bit too narrow and it's not worth taking the car out for a photo-session when it's as filthy as it is right now..... Saturday / Sunday should be good for a clean and photo-shoot....

    needs a proper photo session still (preferably after a better clean, T-cut, etc... and something better than my 1.8MP Nokia 6300 as the camera!), but this all you're getting for now







    Offset could go 15mm wider, but that's S4 spec now:

    just not such great parking, eh?

    I was just driving back from my friends house and thought "bugger, not gonna have time to go home and get a camera and then go out to take pics, so might as well jsut grab some now when the car's been given a quick scrub".
