    that is standard for 170 models, mine is the 140 and has the twin at one side so you do have the quicker model, plus with that chip on it probably goes like **** off a shovel

    you could get yourself a RS4 front grill, they look mint and really set the car off, unless like you say the wife will be driving most the time so just want standard s-line kit on it?

    are they different then? do they fit into a s line bumper? or are the bumpers the same its just the big grill that is the differences? i did consider buying some of the wider rs4 wings but then id have to start welding the rear ones and cant really be arsed lol

    Here mate spottied this
    AUDI A4 B7 S LINE 2005 2006 2007 GENUINE FRONT BUMPER + GRILLE FOR SALE | eBay

    As for my grill would really like £70 posted and paypalled as ive got to recover some of the cost of my Rs4 one. Its in good nick with the bages, plate mount and trim etc....

    As for the Rs4 grills they are straight swap and have a honey comb style (plenty of pics on here). Although theyre not cheap, really depends how much you wanna spend on the car. Although seems you got a great deal. Will teach people to drink drive. His loss youre gain

    Yeah seems to be a shortage on ebay at the moment. You can get grills with gloss black trim but they dont turn up very much. Most just vinyl wrap them

    absolute bargain you can't go wrong with that.
    The lower intercooler joining pipe is different to the 140 aswell and are not easy to find neither is the o/s intercooler if that's smashed.

    when your fixing it check all the air con like compressor as i hit fox at 60 and mine went, u should be able to tell if its a special edition as the front light wont have any orange indicator covers on them and the seat are 2 tone, plus special editions are 30mm lower then standard and 10mm lower then normal slines

    will do but the imact was mainly absorbed by the engine hence sump and all mounts even the gearbox mount broke, result really as all chassis legs flitches wing rails etc untouched, almost a bolt on repair

    I had them for awhile, they were ok, used them with osram night breaker plus bulbs. The beam pattern wasn't as good as oem, but some have added hids which have made a massive difference.

    Hi Lee

    I have just ordered one of the tuning boxes that you found in your new car. I cant work out exactly where it connects to. Do you know where it connects up to ? Pictures would be brilliant if you have any, cheers
