    I'm surprised the price hasn't gone up more with the amount they must sell. I was going to fit one on mine, but I think it's too low now so will just leave it. Now it's lowered I think the front end looks nicer than it did anyway. I can't be bothered with the hassle of scraping every kerb (or rather the complaints from the wife when she rips it off)

    My mate just got one for his cab from tps £48.

    As for mine also, it's gone, nose dived to many times at local cattle grid. :(

    Nevermind, I just fitted HIDs!! :D

    How bizarre, mine are black! They look the same though so I'm sure they're fine. Just imagined they'd be all black.

    Get a pic up when you've done them!

    Ah, well that makes sense then :) good luck fitting them. You had the pinch bolts out recently, or removing the full strut?

    Garage doing them for me. for a good price so they say?! I'll get back to you on how much it actually was later.

    I spoke to them at 11 o'clock and they said the suspension was off! Not bad considering I dropped the car off to them at 9:20 this morning.

    All done!!

    Dropped off at 9:20am, just picked up at 1 o'clock.
    3 hrs & 40 mins from drop off to collection, so I'm assuming it took them just over 1hr & 3/4 a side.
    All good, looks 10 times better and still drives smooooth.
    Cost - £90
    Quite happy with that!!

    Pics a bit later after wash :salute:

    Looking good! I like that a lot. It's a lively colour of car too.

    Think I preferred the rs4's though. :(

    I did also, but they were reps and I'm not a fan of reps.
    The Ronals are temperamental till I find something I really like.

    What's the difference with the s4 grill to the standard one?
    I can't really tell on my mobile view.

    Looks great with the new grille, I think they toughen up the front no end.

    Beefier construction, especially the verticals.

    Looks more beefy now I think :)
    S4 grilles also grey in colour instead of black.

    Etka shows them coming in black and graphite, you don't see many black ones though.
