    Thanks a lot mate,took me a year of preparing and researching but i am really happy with it in the end.The Side skirts were probably the biggest pain in the ass tbh. I kept on looking on eBay for some to pop up and whenever they did come up they were usually for the 3 door :/ .I also considered buying some of the replica ones on eBay for £99 but one of my mates ordered some and was not happy with the build quality.In the end i decided to bite the bullet and just go down to audi to get them.I ordered 2 end caps, 2 skirts,4 door blades and some fixings which all came about £445 with a trade discount.Ignore the Carrier in the invoice,that was the price for a new slam panel :(

    I only removed one door sill by myself so couldn't exactly tell you hard it was.My mate has a garage and was going to spray my bumpers and skirts for me so i just asked him to fit the skirts for me.He said the hardest part was removing the old sills so they don't get damaged,apart from that removing the existing plastic skirt took longer that planned as it is bonded quite well to the chassis.The skirts aren't exactly going to be as easy as changing the front or back bumpers but whatever troubles you have fitting them will be well worth it in the end.

    I would love the stance of your car and RS4 buckets! Prefer the 3SDM wheels though I'm afraid.

    The wheels are dreadful and the twin exhausts aren't my cup of tea with regards to the red one.

    Blue one with the AMG alloys is stunning. I agree with Ash, needs a black grill!

    Rest assure there is a black edition grill in my bedroom waiting to go on, along with the rear diffuser being sprayed gloss black :)

    I'll be in UK in July, and my plan is to leave the car to the shop, for 13 days FOR WIDEBODY WORK!! :)

    But that is really ugly, waaay too much.. 2 cm or 1 inch at most is more than enough for both front and rears.

    We will see a nice job I hope :D

    I can't decide if I like the red one!? Wheels aren't great though! The interior looks like it could be quite nice.

    The sprint blue just made me do a sex wee!
