    I've got a pair of black roof rails for a 1997 A4 Avant. Would anyone like to swap them for a silver pair?

    :) DITTO!

    Thought of asking this, but dismissed it as a looooooong shot!

    Also, any Santorin Blue RS4 / S4 owners want to swop their tacky brushed alloy mirror covers for some gorgeous & subtle colour coded ones? :tumble:

    Only the RS4 had brushed ally mirrors. The S4 had colour coded or polished ally mirrors.

    I have a spare set of black roof rails if anyone wants to try painting them silver as genuine ones don't come up often and are fairly expensive when they do.

    I didnt realise they were so hard to get hold of. And to think i moaned at paying £40 for mine !!! If the black ones are alloy i dont see why they cant be stripped and polished ?? I might have a go at my old black ones when i have time !!

    This is what I'm toying with doing, taking the old ones off and doing them as I'm sure I've seen it done to them else where.
