    Yea I was the same mate, when I got my car from the dealer I asked for Mud Flaps to be ordered and was advised that becasue of the s-line kit then wont fit. Now I have found some websites that sell the rear ones, but hard to come by front ones. I think it looks better without them though! :)

    It's the same for the A3's Audi say that the mud flaps will not fit the S-line body kit but they do as myself and many other have proved it.

    Yea I was debating which ones to go for, but decided to go for the cheaper option first to see how I get on with those. The seller seems to have sold a good few so I assume they are a good replica of the genuine ones plus AjM seems happy with his purchase! :)

    I do agree with you there, I would also be one for genuine parts also. But even the rear genuine mudflaps still need some slight adjustment. Yea funny I noticed the front ones were smaller also, a well will see what they are like, and go from there. Might just stick them on for winter and take off after that, will see.

    they reason they say they wont fit is cos the computer says so

    The main reason that Audi computer says no is because most s-lines have a suspension drop over standard.
    It's not that they don't physically don't fit its that they struggle to clear speed bumps, kerbs and may cause damage.

    Fitted now and I can say they are better than the OEM ones, I know this as I bought both for previous A4 and they were identical (except the cheaper ones have the cut out for the sline trim and the oem ones don't, I had to cut it with a knife), difference is you get both sets and postage for the cost of 1 flap from Audi.
    Was also pleased to find out the wheel removal was not ness on this car, just a turn on the front and jack up the rear. Took 20 mins to fit all 4!

    PS, I am not getting any % for the selling of these flaps, should I ask? :jester:

    Well I think they look spot on, and in case you missed the point of the thread it is because they do not make ones for s lines only se that are a bit long.
    But thanks for saying my car looks cheap and tacky. Always nice to hear appreciation, but for the record as the pics above show, I disagree.

    Perhaps you can post a photo to show how much better they look than the ones on my car pic above. I cannot see they look any different on the car.

    The s-line and se are the same only reason there not listed for the s-line is cos the a-line is lower that the se

    SE and S Line bumpers are the same shape where the mudflaps fit on. Ive standard audi mudflaps on the rear and universal ones at the front, standard ones wouldnt fit on the front with the S-Line side skirts. Need to change the rear ones to universal wide ones as the audi ones are too narrow for my wheels lol

    I found it was the other way round. Genuine Audi flaps.....

    I have the same front mudflaps on my B8.5 s-line that I had on my B8 SE, but the rears wont fit.

    I bought a set "non-Audi" ones that I been advised would fit a B8.5 S-Line, they have completely the wrong curve for the rear and the fronts sort of fit but the fixing lugs & holes are in the wrong places. I gave up after that

    Ok, I have the same set of mud-flaps as AJM and I personally I agree with him. I feel they look well on the car and for me personally the genuine ones just stand out too much for my liking, and I found these aren't so much.

    At the end of the day its down to personal choice, it has been established though that the mud-flaps for the SE model A4 B8 will fit the B8 S-Line model ok.

    They look like the ones I got that don't fit my B8.5 Avant, I guess they for B8 only

    I have them sitting in the garage somewhere?

    Are these the genuine ones from Audi? I've ordered a set to collect on Saturday. They've told me 'they are boxed. If I open the box even to just look at them I must buy them'

    Ffs, what's all that about????????? All I want is some MUD FLAPS!!!!

    Surely I'd be able to look at some somewhere. Anyone in the north east with some/any on an Sline avant?
