    New dilemma

    Hi everyone,

    Ive fitted my rs4 wheels today and my 50/40 eibach springs and I must say I love the new look of the car but I'm still pondering over the grille and mirrors.

    Were going to get the s4 mirrors next month and I'm torn between the s4 grille or the rs4 grille, I feel the rs4 has become quite common lately and I'm kind of swaying towards the s4 instead.

    What are your opinions? Thanks for your help

    Is is the only pic I've got at them min as I had to rush from the garage to pick my lad up from school, will get some better ones tomorrow.

    Im just going to get the copy mirrors off eBay as I can't really justify spending the amount of money on mirrors that the oem cost and they hardly ver come up second hand.

    The ones I'm going for are £125 on eBay they're the most expensive reps so I'd like to think they have some sort of quality about them, I'm also thinking about clear wrapping them as I've heard a few stories of people's paint reacting after 6 months ish, so hopefully clear vinyl should prevent that.

    They're only a few screws behind and under the mirror glass theyre quite simple by the looks of it, just take your time and you'll be fine mate.

    Rs4 grill would be my choice its popular for a reason it looks great ! Go for the black optics one and wrap your window trims to match will transform your car.

    I know what your saying about the rs4 grille I'll prob end up going for that one but I'm liking the chrome at the minute and if I wrap everything in black then I'll end up having to do the roof bars too and the new mirrors wouldn't look right.

    Yours looks good with the bars silver though because your cars silver, mine would look out of place everything being black except the roof bars I think.

    I've got a friend who works in a sign writers who is going to do a matt black wrap to the chrome on my avant. The rails and mirrors I think can be chrome but the window trim looks rubbish in chrome. I've got a dark met grey avant.

    Couple of questions

    Are those wheels 19s

    How do the Eibachs feel on Sline dampers? I want to lower mine but would rather get new springs/dampers than just springs.

    With the springs and the 19s how much harder is the ride?

    Ta!

    Hi mate, yeah the wheels are 19's and to be honest the ride hasn't really changed since I've fitted the springs but bearing in mind they've only been on a day so may settle a bit, but I am so pleased with the way it sits now and I'm happy that the ride feels just that little bit tighter in the bends without sacrificing comfort.
