    ...newly aquired A4 2.5TDI

    Currently standard spec, except for a car phone. Contemplating de-badging the rear ( for look and for cleanliness; I don't think it's been washed by hand in about two years, judging by the parts that you can't reach without opening doors, bonnet, boot etc.)
    Would also consider a chip for exonomy (lots of motorway miles!)

    Anybody got an opinion they think I ought to consider...?:)

    Chris20,

    What kit, side skirtsto you have on your car?
    I'm new to all this... And have just brought a 2001 A4 Sport with nasty grey plastic lower bumpers and I really like the look you have.. What are the parts that come out from the lower half of the doors? Are the whole side skirts different too, or are they just colour coded?

    Cheers!

    you can do front and back.... of course you just buy the bottom halves (audi is the cheapest for them) and the swap over, front and back are bout £67 each at audi + i payed £55 to get each painted from audi work shop i droped them off and they painted them and i collected 2 days later!

    The lower parts of the doors and bumpers can definitely be colour coded. It was standard on the B6 after 2002 I think. If you decide to have it done, make sure that the parts are removed from the car first (sounds stupid, but has been known to happen.....!) I was quoted about £150 for this work from the dealership where I got my A4 - it's near Nottingham, pm if you want details.

    Last November on my old B6 avant i payed £60 for the rear bumper, it cost £50 to get sprayed at a local body shop and i fitted it, this time i was quoted £67.50 + vat for each bumper part(from audi parts dept)! but there was one on tyresmoke for £30

    And saying as my car was in coolbrook and burgess under warrenty getting some work done i asked them to removed the old bit of rear and put the new bit on and they re-painted it for £67.50 + vat (stange the price is same as the part)

    so cost me £110 all in for the rear s-line to get done


    As said above make sure it is removed and off the car for spraying, make sure the top edge is definatly painted and keyed properly as the top half of the bumper expands at a dif rate than the bottom and there is quite a bit of movement between the 2, if not done properly it will flake off after a few months.

    hi there
    one thing you have to be carefull with when fitting the s line front bumper spoiler is that the se front bumper and the sport front bumper are different ,
    you will need a sport front bumper to beable to fit the s line lower valance
    so if you have an se you will need a new bumper .
    i hope this helps

    I'm also interested in getting the s-line front and rear lower bumper parts for my tdi avant.

    If I call up Audi won't they start by asking for a Chassis # or reg?

    it would be good to have the part numbers so I can just call up and order.
    If I give them my part code, can the parts be sprayed before I drop in to pick them up?

    Spolier seems the right one mate, so as long as the other bits match you will be ok.



    as for painting depends on colour of car. if flat brilliant red like mine it can be painted of the car and no clour match required, if its black then probs not.
