    Well, where to start.

    Ordered my Eibachs and got my mate to help me fit them.....turned into a bit of a nightmare.

    Got it on the ramp and removed the wheels....First bolt we tried was the pinch bolt on the passenger side...SEIZED IN SOLID......

    After trying everything for a few HOURS!!!!!....YES HOURS....we ended up removing the whole suspention set up and taking it to get drilled out.
    While i was getting that done my mate fitted all the others as NOTHING else was stuck...Always the way.

    Once back we got it all sorted in the end....But 1 bolt cuased a right headache.

    Anyway, all done and im chuffed to bits. It drives SO SO SO much nicer on these then the OEM S-Line setup.....Definatly a mod to do.....

    Heres the pics.....

    I helped replace my mates audi a4 cab suspension last week, and after asking the question on here, we replaced the fronts by just undoing the top strut bolt and dropping the unit out as one. To put the new spring and old strut back in, we put the spring compressors on, put a cable tie around the base of the actual strut to prevent is dropping down and jacked the base of the strut up, the threaded end comes through the top mount in the engine bay and voila :) no need to remove the pinch bolt.

    Don't want it to go too black, will look a bit chavvy. Going to get silver RS4 mirror covers I think.

    also it was rebadged from the factory....

    personally, i think murdered-out cars are done to death... i agree with the mirrors, get some contrast in there ;-)
