    What could else could I do to my car ???

    I've had stage 1 remap with egr delete and panel air filter, dpf back straight through exhaust, 18" 3sdm alloy wheels, vag com dial sweeep and seatbelt warning so on so on..
    Its just had the clutch done and yellow fog tints..
    It has sline suspension and i dont want to go lower as its my daily..

    Last thing I can think of doing is a fmic and wrap the chrome trim..


    I was thinking electric seats but iv been told they are pretty expensive so I might leave them...

    Its a diesel engine to so pretty much the other thing i can do to the engine bay is to wrap the covers lol

    Any other ideas ???

    Yeah im getting pressed plates for my birthday as my girlfriend is getting me a private plate.. i might buy a number plater surrounds plate tho..

    Drilled disc - heard loads about them being **** so its left me confused.

    LEDs Would be a good upgrade and cheap :D might order some now..

    already de-badged her :D

    tbh just got back from the garage and saw the guy driving my car and I think i'm going to leave it as done now because i think its a real good looking car !

    Get some custom floor mats :D

    The problem you get with people and drilled and grooved discs is people expect too much they think they will somehow turn them in to some kind of super brakes when infact they don't, what I've found is they seem to bite a bit better but overall don't improve the braking massively they look pretty cool though lol I'm just about to order some mtec dimpled and grooved black ones as they look cool when the black wears off as the dimples and grooves are left black and the rest of the disc shiny, also no rusty hubs like the standard audi.

    Dont forget little things like the Audi R8 oil cap, straight swap and looks better in the engine bay.

    I also found my local audi dealer were half the price than the ones on ebay.

    Yeah add a front and rear dash cam, with full 24/7 operation via a battery saver device.

    Also alu mirror covers, gear knobs, steering wheels with paddle shifts (if you didn't already have them)

    RS4 style black gloss grille, match the fog grilles. Upgrade Fogs with Ice white bulbs.
    Upgrade the interior lights to LED................................. never ends lol

    Sound advice by Macdoon! Incidentally, Macdoon, have you changed your fog lights to the ice white bulbs? If so, have you got any pics? 😎

    Only problem is you can't get honeycomb fog grills for the sline if that's what you mean by match the fog grills?

    Your car is looking great mate! 😎
    I can't wait to see what your gloss black fog surrounds look like as that was what I was planning to do next.

    Where did you get your fog light bulbs from?

    Someone in the UK, over on Audizine, has made mesh ones for the S line to go with the RS4 grille and he is pricing up some to sell!

    So there are some advantages to having the SE model of my A4 b8, honeycomb fog grills fitted a couple of weeks ago, after fitting RS4 honeycomb grill. I'll post a couple of pics tomorrow, must say they do finish off the front of the car, IMO. :kissmyrings:

    Sure am mate, would be nice to get a few ASN members all camping together like some of the other Audi forums did last year, I may try to organise this nearer the time. My mate with his b7 is travelling down with me, so that should be three ASN members for a start.
