    You can get them from Ebay mate, around £120 IIRC, you will have to trim the lip off on the inside of the wing though to make them fit, otherwise straight swap AFAIK

    Personally I wouldnt have done the rear spoiler.

    plus the tints on the front door windows are illegal.

    Honestly, I think the front and sides are good. Like me, you need to upgrade the wheels. But the spolier on the back doesnt really suit the car and the back bumper makes the car look like it weighs a ton. Thats just my opinion - a lot of people go for those style back bumpers but I don't think they work.

    Looks good but personally i would have gone for a more subtle rear valence and boot spoiler. You definately need some bigger wheels with that kit on as it makes your current wheels look tiny. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    Sorry to spoil all the back slapping but having just sold my TQS I have to say that don't like it at all.

    I think the front is smart, i would have smoothed the vents just below the head lights though.

    The rear bumper, spoiler and side skirts are not really my cup of tea but so long as your happy with it!

    Cheers.

    I hadnt noticed the vents at the first look but i agree would look better with them smoothed out. I think it would look alot like an RS4 front bumper then. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Those vents are only on the very latest Rieger RS4 bumper. I opted for the older version which doesnt have them.
    Personally the rear spoiler and valance arent my cup of tea but like Soupie said each to their own.

    As mentioned in General Chat forum... Some VERY quickly done photo-chops...

    RS6:

    Old RS4 (/RSTT):

    New RS4:

    Just some thoughts /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Hope that helps - I can have another bash with some other wheels (or do higher-quality versions of above (sort out exact sizes, angles and details like brake discs etc)) if you want, but it takes me a loooong time to get them considerably better than the ones above (as described)... There are some photoshop heros on the boards who'll no doubt be able to help though...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    I have to say they are my least favourite... don't really like them at all if I'm totally honest. I think they're more suited to a BMW or similar.

    The RS6's look good... but I think I've been swayed there by the huge discs that accompanied them in that 'shop... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'd have to agree with Tim - the RS6 ones look the mutts nuts. But then again, it's all down to personal taste...

    By the way agree with the RS6's. Those new RS4's look way to complicated for the styling of the B5. I think simple designs work much better and are more in keeping with the look of the car.

    Visually not too much I would have thought (Car aside that is) It’s an old spec S4 with updated lights £200,
    Wheels & Tyres £800
    Exhaust_ System £500
    Springs £130 or coilovers £750

    The car was Black
