    I have sourced some OEM door blades from a local breakers yard and he is asking £155+VAT for them. Good condition but I am going to ge then prep'd and sprayed up anyways.

    Good price or not?

    Also anything else I need to know on these before I go ahead?

    Sounds like a good price, I'm sure someone on here has said that they are over £400 new for the set of 4

    They're a £100 ish each new and will still need paint.

    That's not as much of a bargain as I've seen on here, but it's not a bad price.

    Are they S-Line or S4 blades?

    It's not that he's obsessed, more just 'wealthy' - has a parquet floor of S4/sline blades y'know...

    Not sure about price now, but last time I checked 4 yrs ago, they were £260 for the full set of S-Line blades...

    S-Line are a bit smaller and more discreet, but provide a very nice "squat" look...

    S4 blades are bigger and usually left in matt black (although it was an option to have them colour coded): they look good on a real S4, but I'm not sure about them on regular A4's... bonus is they usually don't need spraying :)

    Sorry to hijack your post mate, i tried to take one of mine off the other day out of interest as I was replacing my winder mechanism thought Id see if I could get it off, up did the screw and mind wouldnt budge well and truly stuck on anyone got any tips on prising them off?

    I know they should slide off but I presume as they have been on the car since new and are probably full of gunk its going to be one of those where a bit of elbow greace is needed eh?
