    Thanks for that Michael:icon_thumright:

    Thanks for that :) I know i cant wait to get her lowered, will look soo much better.

    Sorry to hear that, but could of been worse. Well at least you can drive it in a straight line again :) For refurb try yell.com or just type it in on google. Quite a few place down by me came up (which i never knew about).

    I see you have s-line badges on the rear quarter trim, is this just badges on the trim or proper s-line trim?

    Ahh good :) not bad quite close then.
    Well when i went to get some from my dealer the guy i deal with jamie said £120 and some thing. Thought ok not bad. Then some other guy (gareth) said the same but when i came in to order them. Jamie wasnt in and i was stuck with this other guy gareth (kn*b) he said they were £160 and then the price was £140. So i never ended up ordering them from my dealer. But i think there only about £120.

    Ahh good you can actually get them off German ebay for £120.
    If there going in i would get them painted satin matt black. When i had my rs6 alloys i was going to have them GunMental Grey. Well still am as from september i will have those on my car till spring :) But new car in 2010 yay :)

    EDIT: Just looked your car red go with the black alloys :)

    With the RS6 alloys was £220 all together. Full refurb and any colour of my choice. Also included taking them off my car and putting them back on. If i choice to bring them up on my car. (would have to leave the car there for two days) But now just drop the alloys off. how bad is it? Or just few marks nothing too bad?

    if its gonna cost too much i might just get a new set of alloys was already playin with the idea of something different, but means parting with more cash

    me? im happy with it, took off my tuning box though, so im back to stock

    got votex kit on it (front, rear, sideskirts, roofspoiler), aftermarket pioneer headunit with amp n subs in the back, tinted my windows recently.

    i was tempted to get the rns-e but its gonna cost a fair wad due to me havin a single din setup, plus if i did id want the bluetooth phone kit because my current headunit can, then if i got this id probably want a mfsw... the list goes on lol

    i was thinking RS4s in 18s but saw some R8 replicas which looked good but wasnt sure about the quality (being reps)

    Edit: oh and them facelift rearlights, xenons, maybe sum lamin-x for my headlights, electric folding wing mirrors.... man this is gonna be pricey

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    got a quote today for refurbing 2 of my alloys and having them all painted gloss black, (after close examination gloss black looked better than satin black)

    £335 quid! so im not sure what to do now... add more cash to it and get sum 18"s? or refurb and paint black...

    Kit looks really good mate :D

    £335 to refurb? Thats a bit steep. Max i would say £60 a wheel but if thats the case, you can get some Rs4 in the diamond cut finish (which i think would look awesome on your car) for £500ish :D - 18s

    thanks man, was thinkin of changing front to s3 but not sure

    335 is for refurbing 2 and then painting all 4 black but yeah its still quite a bit to fork out

    i just found these for 500

    [​IMG]

    R8 replicas

    the price for them rs4s is that for replicas too?
