    Ive been a member of this forum for ages and never shown any pictures of my car, Ive had it for about 4 months, and i got a lot of things in my mind what i want to do to it! things ive done so far are: i got a new cambelt , waterpump, when i first bought it because it had done 56k miles and no cambelt change so done that straight away! i got a K&N filter on it aswell straight away. then bought a personalised plate he he :D K7VST for Kivist.

    So far it looks like this:

    Looks very nice - good condition too. Treat yourself to a £20 Cupra splitter until the S-Line's ready ;)

    Send a PM to JohnboyC, he has the Audi version of them which are very similar I think, and he was looking to sell them a little while ago.

    Cupra-R splitter is great: I got mine from the lcoal SEAT dealer - much more co-operative than the Audi guys... it's a pretty easy install, I think James and I took about 2 hours to do mine, but then we were pratting about a fair bit.... you could probably slap it up in half an hour if you were better at measurign stuff up and/or not that fussed about how perfect it was.

    Nothing difficult at all - but you have to place it manually, so it's just a matter of deciding quite how far in/oat/left/right you it (and how perfectly symetrical you want it)...

    and maybe wait until the next bout of snow has cleared before you fit it though... I had to take mine off about one day later as it was getting pulled off ploughing through snow... and it was also "very" cold when we were fitting it!

    and back to the thread: nice car - completely mint! what colour is that? looks like phantom black to me.... so not that rare, but still looks mint!

    RS4's are nice (especially in Anthracite/Graphite), but seriously look at something liek those BBS's liked above... and keep your 16's for winter tyres :)

    Hi...

    Yep, still got the BBS 18" Alloys ET43 offset for sale....I would like £450 for them....they are mint...no kerbing and include the centre caps. I have never seen them on any other Audi A4 B6....but they were fitted to mine by the 1st owner when purchased new....

    ET43 = good offset... and sport = 20mm lowered than SE, so it's kinda lowered.

    There is no effects at all on the pictures it is just the light and some of the pictures a fisheye lense has been used ;)


    Lostbok.
    The colour isnt phantom black its blue :D a really dark and shiny blue! not sure what the name of it is. It might be called midnight blue?? not certain though:S

    JohnboyC

    The wheels are pretty nice, but i am not digging the centre of the wheels tho, abit too old school for me, but thanks alot for the offer and a reply :)))))


    cheers:)

    Henri - understood - was wondering why you'd said you were thinking abotu getting S-Line kit and painting it blue!

    Look out for BBS RX's and RX2's... very similar to those... but with a smaller centre section... hunt around: RS$ reps are good, but really done to death... how about some S4 AvusIII's.... (no James, I'm NOT selling mine ;) )

    Yeah, exactly rs4's just way too common but a really nice looking wheel! i probalby go for them either silver or grey.thinking about grey but not sure if it would look right with my car :S it would be a bit different aswell. But if i see some bbs reps either Ch or something similar like the GTs, then probably them:)
    edit:

    Those rx's and rx2 doo look nice, only ont thing i dont like about them is those allenkeybolts, makes them look too busy and bling bling imo , but without them they would look MINT, just searching around atm:p

    ahh just found some with out screws lol

    Lostbok, you got any pics of the splitter on your S-line front bumper?

    BTW HenriEST, the car looks very clean. Wheels first, then either colour code the bumpers & sides or new bumpers.. Also get that tailpipe cleaned..

    It involves splitting the headlight in two, and spraying the chrome (not the reflector) black - if you look at the top pic you can see it ;)

    I like it! looks good! I bought a cupra splitter today and all!! i got 10% off it cause it had a little scratch :D from a local seat garage:thumbsup:
    So you just have to cut the middle two bracket things down a bit to make it fit good?

    Yes pretty much. Just be very careful and really take your time, a second pair of hands is 'virtually' essential. You will also need to trim the ends as they will be too long for our bumpers. I used a Stanley knife and that lets you just trim it off bit by bit to get the fit right. If you do it right then you will be able to sculpt it into the shape of the bumper.

    I would suggest fixing the middle first to get it dead central, and then you can work out from either side, this will ensure you fix it evenly to the car on both sides.

    I look forward to seeing it fitted!

    I ran mine up a set of ramps, just be careful on the way down or you'll remove your hard work unceremoniously!

    I'm not sure and its too dark to go out and count them! I would guess at about ...... ignore that I've just been out and counted lol ..... I used 15 - but I'l known to over engineer stuf, but I'm sure Lostbok would agree that you wouldn't want any less to make sure it stay's put!

    As long as the screws are an appropriate length then you won't hit anything no. The same obviously applies to the drill bit for the pilot hole! Stainless? Nice :)
