    Don't debadge the grill - just paint the surround. Leave the Audi badge chrome IMO. I would debadge the rear too - just the 1.8 badge. Makes it look much cleaner. :)

    Will be getting lowered when funds allow.
    Will do the surround first and see what I think about the rings, with the rear I will be taking the 1.6 off and the A4 aswell I think but not sure weather to leave the rings chrome, spray them black or just take them off all together.
    Anyway did some de walnuting today.
    The walnut was stuck on hard

    Deffo think the head unit should be black.

    Jeez, your quite young to own an Audi mate, or any car for that matter........! :)

    Stereo does look right out of place, needs black to match.

    As already stated black out the grill, remove the A4 and 1.6 badge. I would black gloss the surround and mirror's. The door handles and lower's sprayed LY3Z (OR).. I like the colour alot. :thumbsup:
