    B7 A4 --> S4 Replica with pics!

    So I decided that my A4 was boring (as far as stock A4's go). Having looked at a few S4's on the B7 chassis it really didnt appear much different on the exterior so I thought I'd pretty much replicate it as I am in the poor club and can't afford a real one <br><br>It's pretty much spot on although the exhaust system I had fabricated along with slightly bigger tailpipes than the miltek setup as the miltek S4 system was freaking extorntionate,&nbsp; and there was naff all point in spending out on miltek running on a diesel engine! so the tailpipes are a little different but alas...here she is....

    Love the look, Dolphin Grey best colour but I am biased lol. Wheels look really good, but maybe the S4 badges need to come off IMHO.

    Looks good, dolphin grey is the best colour. I think the S4 badges need to go too, but then people wouldn't realise that it is an "S4". Could do with OEM xenons or projector lights too. That would finish the car off nicely.

    Which it isn't to be fair...... Personally I think the badges look good, and you'll 'get away' with them as long as you don't start the engine!
    However, on principle they shouldn't be on there. It's a bit like fitting 'quattro' badges to a fwd model

    I could just imagine you pulling up along side a fast car, you reving your car and going to set off and plodding away

    It does look good but...

    S4 badges don't belong there IMO and the rear one looks like its in the wrong place.
    Not a fan of the wind deflectors - they make it look a bit 'caravan club' to me.
    Your front bumper alignment looks out making the gap between the leading edge of the bonnet and the grill too large.
    The chrome strips on the air intakes look naff and remind me of foreign cab drivers who try to tart up their mini cabs by adding chrome bling round every line of their (normally Japanese) sh1t heap.
    Lastly, the wheels look like they sit too far into the arches and would benefit from spacers.

    Lol... On reflection my I feel my post above was slightly harsh. It does look good and you should be really chuffed with it. It's your car at the end of the day and if youre happy with it then who can tell you different!

    Looking good! Think it needs the door blades to finish it off, and either the removal of the S4 badges, or at least reposition the tailgate one so it sits where it should.

    Just say what you really feel! lol

    Personally i think it looks great, but will be embarrassing when any show of real power is required!

    With the amount of money you have probably spent, you could have bought a real S4 B7!

    I only spent £700!! Only things i put on are the exhaust, valence, grille and badges, everything else was as it is when I bought it so really wasnt too bad lol.

    Cars a nightmare anyway im gonna sell it, its back in the garage with an electrical fault or something i don't trust it. so its gonna have to goooo

    As fo the rear badge... it was placed whilst sat beside my friends B7 S4 which is real lmao and its exactly the same. So i dunno.

    looks really nice, well done. i too agree though that the s4 badges should come off. just leave it debadged i think it will suit it better. then people might think it's just a debadged s4 and you don't want to shout about it - more respect! lol

    There's a drawing on ETKA and ELSA for the correct badge positioning, if your friends badge is in the same position then it wasn't fitted there by the factory...

    I happen to agree tbh, badges, rain deflectors & wheels need going & slightly better ofset RS4 wheels would look allot better.

    The spoiler from those angles looks hideous, thats not stock is it, if is then apologies just angle looks awful to view.

    The front carrier probably needs lifting to allow bumper to lift along with grill, would improve front end enormously as allot of B7's suffer from this gap issue I've seen.

    Spoiler is stock, or was on there when i bought it, as were the deflectors so could have been added i guess. I really didnt add much to it lol, some of it does look shabby I know..like the grille/bonnet gap it looks rank huh! but if I lovewer the bonnet to tighten the gap, it doesnt line up with the sides . but imo, before the badges went on, it looked more like an S4 to me than it did an A4 with the wheels esp as they were also on it already.. but I drive it like an a4 lol, slow as fk, i dont thrash it its just for looks not racing off the lights. As a newbie to cars and modding, all comments taken aboard :D

    lmfao thats funny, those cars were rapid, I recall the company I worked for many moons ago had iirc an estate & it flew absolutely flew, I have a memory of going along the A2 more coastal side & just couldnt believe how fast it was, then again we also had an astra 1.4 estate that was ridiculous, it was so damn rapid, you could get it way up the speed in low gears, we were just dumbstruck why that car was so quick.

    All this talk about badges...blah de blah. Looks good Av4nt, however the only thing missing in my opinion is the door blades and the Xenons. I think it looks ace and KEEP the badges. After all you are trying to make it look like an S4 without the running costs.

    Just a quickie for you pal, to get rid of the bumper gap you don't lower the bonnet, you raise your bumper, there are adjusters in your bumper, open your bonnet and there are 2 holes either side near your headlights, get an extension bar and Torx bit and screw away, you'll see your bumper either rise or lower, if it goes down screw the other way and hay presto your bumper sits right, when your bumper doesn't fit right you know someone has had it off in the past, about 90%+ of owners bumpers don't sit right and it's so annoying lol

    as great as they are.. they're also a massive PITA as the ballast units fail alot, which means the lights flicker and then go out!!

    this is a really nice looking wagon.. for me, I would add the door blades, de-tango the lights, maybe smoke the rear windows, loose the badges, and space the rear wheels slightly - then sit back, open a cold one, and admire all your efforts.

    Out of interestAv4nt, which mirror caps did you buy, and what is the fit & quality like???

    I think my S4 is the only one I've ever seen that has the no-cost option delete, of body coloured mirror caps.

    Cheers,

    Very strange as I havnt had to change any & I only ever read this once in a bluemoon tbh, usually its the bulbs that need replacing, but hardly often a module, although not cheap to replace so you'd want them to last lol.

    Badges don't belong there... Due to the OP's reluctance to reply to the numerous posts about them though I imagine they are there to stay lol

    at least I assumed that's what it was as all my symptoms matched the other failures on B7 S4's & RS4's on RS246, but tbh i'm not sure.. all i have to do is switch them off and on again, and they work.

    but bloody annoying, and dangerous at night !!
