    Diamond geezer Craigcull has sourced me a set of OEM S4 door blades, and will be painting them Quartz Grey before sending them to me. Pics to follow in a week or so.

    You can always ask him.

    Actually, it was a typo on my part. Craig has sourced some OEM S4 blades for himself, and is painting and then sending me his OEM S-Line blades.

    Ah you got my hopes up! I didn't realise the S-Line and SE and different door blades? Can't believe I didn't know that lol
    Craig, how about it, got any more S4 blades up your sleeves? :)

    not the cheapest mod but does make a nice difference depending on what you got. I have to sort of drivers door blade as sits out a bit, two screws hold it so piss easy to remove and install unlike other mods.

    S line or s4 is the nicest as flat just looks boring.

    How are these fitted, does it involve drilling holes ? I have searched on eBay but the same ones in Poland keep coming up. i could see a uk seller shifting quite a few of these ;)

    No drilling necessary. OEM blades (all styles) have a series of lugs that corresponds with a slot on the outside of the lower door. You engage the lugs in the slots, slide into place, and then secure the blade with two screws - one at each end - from the inside of the lower door. The Polish copies I have seen on eBay appear to have the holes for the scecuring screws in them, but not the locating lugs. So I'm guessing the are simply screwed into place.

    Yeh, I've had a read up on them on the US forums, they're about $400 dollars over there! I'll leave it in your capable hands!

    Yes. All OEM blades have the same fitting and are fully inter-changeable.

    Just watch out for cheap fiber glass replica's as they are cheap for a reason. You will find they don't sit flush with the door bottom and don't have any slots for the locating pins on the rear of the blade.

    Actually, just thinking about the description I gave of the fitment in my post a few up, I think actually the lugs are on the doors and the slots are on the blades.

    Here ya go Jeff, 4 S Line door blades in your specified colour as promised. I'll give them a flat and polish tomorrow (not that they need it but just to be sure) then let them harden off before packaging them up ready for postage on Saturday. Just wana make sure they don't have any marks on them due to the lacquer being a little soft. Hope your happy and please feel free to give me a shout in the future. :)
    For anyone reading this, please feel free to msg me if you require paint. Also feel free to see my paint work and detailing work on my own car and my dads on my many threads :) detailing/painting/wheel refurbs/specialist paint or general repairs (Audi approved) :)

    They look great, Craig. Really looking forward to getting them on the car.

    To any one else out there thinking of contacting Craig about a paint job, I say go for it. He's done me proud. I won't disclose the price I'm paying, because these matters must always remain confidential between the parties. All I need say is that Craig has done me a thoroughly fair deal, the terms of which I am very happy with.

    Now, about those Eibachs?! :lmfao:

    I'm still hopeful one day of picking up am OEM SE boot spoiler for sensible money. I found the part number by chance in a B7 accessory cataloge pdf (it's 8EC 071 640 9AX), googled it, and found I'd just missed one on eBay. It had sold for £31. This is the item.

    Cheers, bud. It's my fourth A4, and the first one that wasn't silver metallic, so it took me a while to get used to it. These days, I love it.
