    Oh, ok, didn't realize you knew :)

    BTW: what's the benefit of fitting B5 spring perches?

    Tint vinyl was utter s**t! Tried my indicators and it wouldn't bend round the corners then done my rear light below. Looks good in the picture but wasn't so great in person so I whipped it back off! No loss for £1.97 haha!

    EDIT: I think it looks great in the picture, a little dark though! Maybe try out some tinting spray next!

    Ah I see :) the front being higher than the back is OK, this shifts some of the weight to the back and is good IMO for nose-heavy, understeering FWD A4s such as ours :)

    Anyway, glad you have good roads to ride low :arco:

    The roads still aren't great haha. So I'm only lowering the rear 10mm and the front ~20mm and keeping comfortable 235/40 tyres on 18's :D

    No crazy lows or massive wheels. I must be getting old haha!

    I've noticed the links for the pictures from a few posts ago have broke, so I've re-uploaded some of them! Should receive my new front 312mm set-up and rear disc and pads this week :D!

    Looks good mate, I picked some s4 rims up sat from up near Perth, nice drive up from edinburgh.

    Quick question, how are you going to lower it that way, b5 perches on standard sport suspension for the front and springs on the rear?

    Cheers man. I quite like the S4 wheels! Eibach Pro springs all round with the B5 perches on the front mate! Front will lower approximately 20mm dependant on how my car take to the eibachs and b5 perches as it can vary a little bit.
