    S4 sideskirts

    Im going to order s4 sideskirts when i get paid. Was wondering if i can get away with just getting the skirts and not worrying about the other fitting. Rivet them maybe?

    they need a fair bit of work to fit onto an a4. im gonna get just the skirts and take it from there. go on audiworld - 'resorces' at the top of page, then - 'tech articles' - 'exterior' - 'fitting s4 lower sections'

    it tells you how to do it there.

    velcro sounds a bit crude to me, there are loads of bits needed to fit them properly, vagparts quoted me £275 for the stuff. you need new sill kick strips too. the a4 ones get in the way. these are the parts you need!!

    Jim, use the velcro.. Sounds great, well for me as i may be forced to "borrow" them then??? lmao

    The RAC screens black"stuff" will do it IMO, just need the clips for the ends IIRC
