they would be the 17" ronals found on the facelift 1.8TQS
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
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 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!
looks cool, now for the S4 bumper? think yo'd get away with it on a black car ...sweeet
Worth it ?
Original looks more than OK ....
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.
Yep, I'm currently sourcing some US (amber corner) 1-piece headlights
An RR Phantom makes Sally look like a lil German midget...
Byzan A4 (mark) whats your car doin there?
i have some
Cars coming along well.
Ohh, nice! You manage to source some for a good price? Got them fitted, or are they going spare... ?
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 My mate gave it to me for free! He got it through his work and doesn't use it - AMAZING
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
Mark, I am liking the clean ness of the car. Wish mine was that clean.
Aw thanks dude I tend to try and only show her when she's clean, haha. Otherwise it's manky just now with the weather + commuting + going to Moonah's
Looking good mate :icon_thumright: very tidy car!
Not that great at all, but I'll keep practicing. Was over at Moonah's work so had to use a chair outside as my tripod, haha...
very nice, is it metallic black?
Yep, it's Volcano Metallic Black
I wish mine was metalic
Cars looking mint mate, and some nice shots there!
Took some snowy, sunset shots last night with Moonah
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!
Time for some new shoes... teaser pic
Hmm BBS LM replica???
They definitely look BBS LM-ish...!
Is that a genuine VAG hammer?
Sunny Wednesday afternoon
Rubbish... no BBS content!
Hahaha... should get them this weekend. Then some tyres and make sure the bad weather is really gone before I put them on!
Will look mint with them mate, are they the real deal or reps? Think the reps look really good, considering difference in coinage!!!
Reps I can't justify the pennies for the real ones, haha
Got some shiny new wheels now Tyres next!
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.
Sally's face met the ass of a Civic this morning, poor girl All is good though. Time for new plates anyway!
