    I thought they looked like 17's, but thought the reply was going to come back 16's for some reason.

    I wonder if they would fit over my Porsche calipers......a debadge and set of those would make the S4 devilishly stealthy :D

    So today, Moonah and I got up early (really about 11am) and headed outside to fit the new shiny S4 grill to Sally's face!

    Put some tunes on, courtesy of my new iPod adapter which plugs straight into the back of the OEM head unit and allows pausing, skipping and fast forwarding/rewinding through the HU controls. Sound is awesome. Really nice little gadget :D It's a Connects2 iPod adapter :) iPod sits tucked away in the glovebox now.

    So, some shots before, during and after. I wanted to retain the Quattro badge, so we had to do a bit of modification. Craft knife and some "DON'T CUT YOUR FINGER!" sentences and the Quattro badge was transferred over to the new grill :)

    Now for pikkaaashures!

    Yeah, it was worth it. That's why I did it.. on my car :) Profile of the surround, rings and grill slats are all different from pre-facelift. And the S4 grill still fits in with the slats in my bumper. RS4 would look out of place. Subtle changes are what I like.

    You need facelift headlights, or at least some pre-facelift S4 two piece projector units.

    Those headlights make the front end look very dated.

    Examples:

    If you got the S4 projector units you could keep your existing orange corners, and as a bonus you'd get an upgrade to HID...

    Hard to find those two-piece S4 projectors though isn't it?

    Oh, I got an awesome new Canon EOS 1000D :D My mate gave it to me for free! He got it through his work and doesn't use it - AMAZING :D

    Some picssssss 'cause I like picsssss :) Got a couple of lil things planned that I'll hopefully get round to soon... it involves some paint ;)

    First three pics are off my phone, the rest are from new cam :)

    Nice car, awesome pics. Looking at the last photo, some one-piece headlights and clear/smoked side repeaters would compete the look. Stance with those wheels is awesome. Thumbs up. :)

    Thanks dude :) Appreciated

    I'm actually looking for 1-piece Amber-corner headlights next. I really love the contrast of the orange on black. Thanks for the input though! :)

    Tidy mate. I just rescued some LM's from a mates lock-up. He's in a wheelchair after an "incident" in Afghanistan (private security) and has lost interest in cars........There 18's,brand new still in boxes and real, not reps. He was saving them for his S500. Flogged them to me for a grand!!! Saved over a grand!! Just need some tyres now like you. Although I have had a couple of mates banging on my door making me offers.....Who's to blame them! I am tempted. Got my eye on some Porsche seats and a B7 steering wheel.
