    Yeah, but it's not the arches they rub on, it's the plastic liner they touch, so rolling the arches is not necessary.

    Kev. love the front valance. I've got an SE too and hate the rounded front, like the way that yours is more angular.

    Where did you get that valance from?

    Tried looking on the net for autovogue, but can't find much. Also, if you don't mind me asking, how much was it to spray and fit it?

    I am unsure how much the front valance was as i got them to buy it and fit it and spray it unless i would not purchase it...

    i think you can buy it from a styling place like a body kit place try ebay or something..

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Genuine-Audi-...ameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting

    There you go matey foudn one for you that is what you wanting and i would have thought nothign more then £60-£100 to get it sprayed..

    might just have to get 19's now.

    damn you for influencing my decision to spend more money.

    got any pics from further away?

    also i do not understand the front valance comment.
    Originally is there a difference between the sport and the se valance.

    oh yeah i knew you'd fitted a splitter.

    from a previous post a gathered there was a difference between se and sport.

    yeah, take some more distant pictures.

    yours is lava grey? and the same car as mine except mines a sport so be interested to see how the 19s look.

    There's no return on the arch so there's nothing to roll! - it can only be pulled by a few mm's

    I like the look of your car

    But reckon it look better if it had four rings on the front.
    But like the red cars looks good :)
