    cheers. I just wish I could have found the OEM black honeycomb grill to match back then. Stafford Audi have loads on em on ebay now for cheap as chips. I didnt even know they existed when I had the beast

    I saw alot of other votex'd A4's when I had mine and not a single one carried it off like mine.

    IMO its because mine was
    - lowered & 19x8.5 RS4 reps (accentuated arches)
    - Milltek pipes (filled the exhaust holes)
    - S4 door blades (wider look)
    - Tinted windows (black on silver look)

    I got lots, i mean lots, of comments, many people thought it was an actual RS4, it was just before the B7 RS4 came out.

    You seriously dont want to know how much I let it go for, only had 78k on the clock - was a 1.8T

    I've got more pics. Will post up. I had a set of rear LED lights on it at one stage, they're the OEM style on ebay. They looked fecking awesome.

    That does look pretty nice. The Alloys and S4 blades do make it look more aggressive. Can't decide whether I like the lights - any pictures of them switched on?

    £5,600 :sob:

    I had a nightmare trying to sell it. Stupidly I had purchased my TT QS and so had two cars. Tried to sell it for 3 months on Auto trader, Ebay and Pistonheads.

    The wheels are the Velocity Motoring RS4 reps in gunmetal - I got these imported over from USA when it was $2:£1 so got em at a good price. They were ace an couldnt find any better in the UK.

    To be fair thou, it was due an 80k service, it wasnt running right and the clutch was on its way out - so prob saved aload of dosh than if i'd kept it

    I thought they were imported wheels due to the better design, they seem to sit in at the centers more whereas the reps over here are to flat looking!!
    When did you sell it??
    My red one was a Y plate too.

    yeah, thats was the key reason i got the ones from USA.

    The reps in UK were just too flat and didnt replicate the curvature of the original RS4's which imo is the key design element

    I sold it last summer, bout July

    It does look very well, I agree that the wheels and door flares give it an agressive look. Get some pics up of the S4 david..

    had a couple of pm's re the wheels

    the wheels are from Modbargains.com

    shipped from US

    so will cost a bomb in the current exchange rate

    luckily I bought when it was £1:$2 !!!

    tbh, IMO they're still the best reps out there and worth the extra

    :thumbsup: haha, yeah picking up S4 cabriolet on Saturday from Cheshire Oak Audi.

    Had put a £100 deposit on the 3.0l V6 cabriolet. . . .but prior to that had my eye on a couple of S4 cabs that had turned up at Audi at a good price, but they went like hot cakes

    Then I saw one come up one night at the right price, so called them up first thing and put a deposit down straight away, havent even seen a pic !

    Spec is; June 2005, 24k miles, Azure blue, silver nappa leather, RNSE, cruise control, heated electric memory seats, BOSE

    Price = little over £15k thats with 1 owner, 12months MOT & 12 Months Audi warranty & Roadside

    At that price from Audi that is seriously good value. . . at any other indy dealer this would be up at £17k going by whats on Autotrader

    Sods law its gonna rain on Saturday !
