    The wheels are 19" Kahn RSV's.
    The grill is from an Audi RS6
    The tail lamps are from a US seller eBay - same as the recent group buy

    Yeah, you spend lots of money on an oem RS6 grill, you cut it up, and stick it to an A4 surround

    I know pal, you just remind me and iv ordered the carbon vinyl now to do it and re do my diffuser. Need to tighten my heat shield also.

    Does anyone know how to remove the boot chrome? It's a pain to get at to wrap when on the car.

    Ah yeah, I did know it was the rear Daz had thinking about it. I think I'm just gonna go for 4" rolled in tips now, can't be bothered buying a new diffuser or carbon wrapping it.

    Bit of advice for anyone considering wrapping your exhaust diffuser....DONT!!!
