    RS6 wheels are truly the most suited for the 8P without a doubt, everytime I see them they never fail to please IMHO

    Any chance of a rough breakdown on the cost and parts involved? Thank you :)

    Looks brilliant by the way!

    I've got a red split grille and it's starting to tempt me.

    Tints are either 30% or 35% all round.

    They are BUT they got to go! I want something different

    Well hard to say really my price could be different to what you could get them for.

    Quick breakdown:
    Bonnet from Audi £200
    Front bumper from ebay £90
    Grill £80
    Skirts + brackets from Audi £320ish
    Rear bumper from ebay £170
    Spoiler from ebay £70

    Thinking of getting all the grey bits on the bumpers and roof wrapped in carbon. If i did the mirrors aswel do you think it would be to much??

    Conversion looking great mate. Would love to get round to doing mine but it always comes down to the money. As for the carbon wrap on the mirrors i think it might be a little to much, i'd look at getting the fogs before anything else. Great job.

    nice conversion mate, looks spot on :)

    after looking at ur parts list, didnt you need the front slam panel or was the bonnet the only thing you needed to change?

    Strange your on 50mm Eibachs, I am too and mine sits a lot lower on the front that yours, about the same on the back

    Your wheels are fooked up too mate, you have 3 replicas and 1 genuine. The genuine one is on the drivers side rear. I bet it looks weird from the back as the reps stick out 10mm more than the genuines!!

    Ye you needed the bonnet plus from reading on here no need for the slam pannel, just cut 20mm by about 30cm off the bottom of each side and fit like a glove!

    Seriouly dont know what to do about wheels! Dont think they will be BBS or S3's, want to be different.

    Spoiler aint OEM i bought one off eBay and was supprised the fitting, shape and quality was very good!! Springs are eiback sportlines 50mm

    Haha good spot!!! The wheels were like that when i bought them! (women driver) I HATE kerbed wheels!! And the reason for the genuine one is that girlfriend (now ex haha) hit a pot hole and damged one so lucky my mate had a spare, again KURBED but will do for now
