    My New S4 Pics

    Hi Guys,

    Finally got some pics sorted this afternoon, see what you think.

    One thing that spoils it is the slightly corroded caliper (see last pic), any ideas, I was thinking rubbing it back to see it thats enough, or should it be painted?

    Eh ! Hang on, how'd you attach pics ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
    Insert Pic prompts me for a url address?

    Ha ha ha, I was contemplating silver but i guess unless it was exactly the same as the wheels it would look odd, blacks probably safer. Can't help but think wheels seem very small for the arch space though? Was there an oe upgrade to 18" ? If so what did these look like?

    No OE upgrade, plus larger wheels means smaller tyre, so the arch gaps remain the same anyway.

    You just need to lower it a little

    Thats craigs car with 18" BBS CH's and a set of Eibach ProKit lowering springs and Bilstein dampers.

    It does look awesome in black, i would be going for a full on black on black theme, with black wheels, dechromed grille, badge and headlights etc.

    Doh..what was I thinking, of course the tyres get smaller....ok well lowering is an option, don't like to deter too far away from oe though...
    I really didn't want a black car, but love it now. If your into black on black think you'll hate my xmas present (to myself) then, yep alum brushed mirrors !

    I'll repost pics when they are fitted, see what you think..

    Our cars not black, its some crappy shade of blue, but i've removed every trace of chrome and silver and done it all anthracite grey.

    Would love a proper black motor though!

    I'm half tempted to get a big pot of black paint and a roller, and go mental on the discovery!

    Lol, i was needing a replacement wing, and someone on here was selling a wing that looked about right. I got him to check the color code and his was LZ5L Ming Blue. I thaught mine was the same and a quick look in the service book "confirmed" it, so i got the wing and fitted it. Turns out the wing is a metallic color very similar to mine, and mine is a flat blue.

    After lots of headscratching i realised i'd missread it and mine was color code LY5L hence the sig

    I had a bit of a guilt trip and struggled to justify as we have our 3rd little one on the way, but then I thought why not, I deserve it, but have had to promise the wife a seven seater...
