    It been a while and finally found some spare time to create a thread for my 2004 50k mile A4 1.9tdi sport with GMBH kit in akoya silver and really happy to be back in an Audi as my last one was an S3 8L about 9 years ago, but been in VW's in between.

    Cheers

    Well i found some time to carbon wrap the upper and lower grills as the gloss black lower looked too hard on Akoya Silver in my opinion.

    I think with the blacked out headlights with the carbon wrap works so far:
