    Looks nice mate.

    I would just get some wheel spacers and remove the sunstrip and the car will look even better.

    Bit too low for my liking. Not seen Merc wheels on an A4 before though, they look good.

    Also you could do with losing the TDi badge on the back because those quad exhausts look like they mean business!

    nice idea but what size would be best suited.

    that 1.9 TDi is for coming off anyways but gonna leave on the A4. been trying to find replacement alloy center caps but dont have a clue on what size i need untill the car comes

    Just ordered this unit for her, should be here on Monday. For 200 its a steal i think

    Feck that's looooow! Nice looking motor there matey.

    Agree with the others tho - spacers, sunstrip & debadge. I'd also consider 1 piece facelift headlights (but I'm biased).

    Is the front valance missing too?

    I'd keep the Merc centre caps, way cooler, and yeah space em out a bit, fatten her up a bit, even if you need to wind her a bit, I presume it's on coilovers!?

    Can you actually see out of that windscreen!?!? Very DTM!

    I would just get a measuring tape out and see what you think would look best. 15mm may be enough.

    What I did was bought a 15mm pair and fitted them on the back to test then decided 20mm would be better so I moved the 15s to the front and put the 20mm ones on the back.

    What offset are the wheels? et43 or something?

    not 100% sure of the offset but wil find out and post 2moro when she arrives.

    Can anyone drop me a few links for coilovers best suited for the motor which will give the same lowered look

    DieselVin - its a shame he cut them but ill be correcting the asap

    how low would you say the springs look. I wanna get them coilovers but wanna make sure shes a little higher by 10mm to alloy for the spacers to set the rims out a but plus shes rubbing the tyres on the arces on full lock

    ill have a look 2moro in the daylight to get some info off the tuning box that shes feeding on

    i think i have found the babys i need

    http://www.dpmautostyling.co.uk/cata...oducts_id=1354

    Hopefully DPM will pop in and offer his advice

    The thing is, from what i can tell shes dropped to 120mm all round but i dont want to go that low but have the option so the above coilover kit looks the ticker. Allowing me to drop to 110mm if needed and at a good price ta boot
