    Yes True, It was between the Otteinger and this one, This one I was able to beat Otteinger by £490 (with roof spoiler) £290 (without)

    That Reiger kit looks the business! :hubbahubba:

    The before and after shots demonstrate the ability of a good kit to transform a car. I'm going to do my 2002 avant (has the ugly grey bits) but was trying to decide on kit. I did look at the Reiger but worried that it might be a little too much. Now I've seen it I think I've decided.

    It's a shame you can't give the kit people your paint code, have them ship it out to you ready to fit.....

    Otherwise if I order the kit, I don't know anyone in my area (High Wycombe) that can be recommended to do the paint job.

    Someone here just got the s-line kit and audi to do it. How much was that?

    I wouldnt trust them painting before sending as they were a little shaken up once they arrived from Germany but I know what you are saying.

    Dont go to audi, Ive heard someone on here paying £1900 for Sline kit and another £900 for painting - Thats Robbery.

    Im sure you will be able to source a good sprayer where you are, If not come up to leicester for the day, My cousin who did mine will be happy to do them for you!!! (bit of a trek but the 4rings does that to you)

    Yea audi quoted a pal £370 + vat just to supply and fit a lower rear s-line bumper!!!!

    I payed £30 + £63 spray job, althought i think most people could sensibly get it down to £120 all in.

    and the worst thing about it is that i got mine sprayed at colbrook and burgess which is audi newcastles body shop!!

    Audi = BANDITS!!!!!

    Yes fit in without a prob at all.

    I was torn beween these 2 kits for a while too mate, I love the front Bumper on the Otteinger, I love the whole kit it looks great but it was the prices I was getting that maybe steered me to the Rieger.

    I was getting quotes of the £990 Mark, I paid £700 all in with the roof spoiler thrown in.I reckon if I pushed harder I could have got it with the Boot spoiler for another £50 but I dint like the rieger Lip spoiler, It looked an odd shape, perhaps on the large side!!

    Now the rears, I like both but it was the Rieger that did it for me (aswell as being the cheaper option) but thats only my opinion, Its what you fancy really mate.

    i think a set of 19' rs6 wheels would look better on your car but maybe im just a little biased :)

    Well I think my fit is 99.9% on the ball, Should be for 12odd hrs!!!

    Its not whether you can trust Otteinger mate, its wheather you got the patients & the time to fit it properly regardless what kit.

    Just out of interest mate, How do you know you can trust otteinger??

    Re mirror casings try going for the matt finish, they look awesome on car plus the chrome finish in my opinion looks a bit tacky. Apart from that i wouldnt add anything else on the exterior, the kit itself looks awesome and you dont want to take the emphasise away from that. Have you managed to get the mesh as yet for front and rear, a mates bought the same kit and he's struggling getting his hands on the mesh. By the way are them 19's youve got on or 18's - alloys suit the car to a T .

    Coming back to red cars - my first car many years ago was a fiat 127 sport - someone stole it first night I had it and when I eventually got it back, that same night someone drove past and scraped the side, when I got that fixed someone stole it again... so I decided never to have a red car and to date I havn't. Its not that the colour looks bad its just brings bad luck to me.

    You had any grief McGough from the Law re the tints? They look like 70% to me?
    I've had 35% added for a 'not so gansta' look, which have been fine so far...

    When I read Rieger kit I imagined a big wide arch kit like they do for the MK4 Golf. I was wrong!

    I must say it looks brill and suits the car. Once you get the rear lower mesh and exhaust sorted out your rocking and rolling in one nice looking B6.

    Well done and good choice.:respekt:
