    Looking good! I am thinking of getting mine powder coated in black, then getting the S4 rattle clips, spray/lacquer them in black and then get a quattro sticker off eBay to put on the rattle clips.

    Lovely job! I've just done my fronts with Foliatec but didn't take the calipers off, is it easy concerning the fluid etc?

    Hi steve to honest I did not replace the piston o ring - didnt know about it untill now ive just googled caliper seal kit it seems an easy task providing you have a compressor or hydraulic tool

    Not sure what the seal kit costs, you caught me out with this one ha ha :sign_ot:

    Cheers

    Looking good, I recently did mine, tempted to do S4 anti rattle clips, but mines only the 3.0TDI sline. I have tried to keep my car looking subtle. I like the look of the new S cars, black with the nice anti rattle clips.
