    Another Poll:

    Toying with the idea of low profiling my S4. Removing the S4 badge and sticking on a 1.8.

    Or

    leaving the S4 on, soup her up. drop a few audiable dump valves in.

    If you feel the need to rub it in everyone's face then you've missed the point, go and buy an M3.

    Andy it was a turn of phrase! i don't want to rub it in anyones face. What it really says between the lines is to show it subtly.

    What i might do is just debadge it fullstop rather than sticking 1.8 on it's boot.

    i think they're pretty stealthy as they are, so saying that i've often considered taking the badges off for those times when i park in town on an evening.

    I've been looking for months! S4 where at the time too expensive for my money. 4-5K I did look at scooby's but there were so plastic inside and the exterior was poor quality. Reminds me of Hyundai's i just couldn't buy one! Then i realised that you could pick up an S4 if you looked around.

    Its funny how someone I know (who suppose to have a good knowledge of cars) - not only he's never heard of the S4, he even called it the Audi 54 because to him the S looked like a 5 on the badge. So he calls it the Audi 54.

    I've de-badged mine...........

    Anybody who knows their cars will recognise what it is, including that it's been modified, and hopefully the chav scum won't....!!
    In my personal opinion

    I allways debadge all of my cars.

    As others have said, anything to keep the Chavs and Pikeys at bay.

    Anyhow, any serious VAG-head will know an S/RS car, without needing to read the badge on the boot!

    I would be with de-baging her but sticking on a 1.8 badge is a sad move. To me as chavvy as sticking an M3 badge on the back of a 316. I would debage it including the Audi badge.

    A 1.8 badge would be ridiculous.

    Fit a 1.6 badge.
