haha i wish, i replaced the 3 lower grilles. When i got my front end re-sprayed i think the bloke doing the job must have used a sledge hammer to smash them out! he managed to break them all, so i needed a full set. I sold my broken ones, but should probably have kept them as spares as they're rare as ****! and pricey too!
how much did u pay for em?
and how much did u sell your broken ones for? they can be zip tied in you know!!
I like that a lot. It's not OTT. Subtle, clean and classy.
@BKZ187 - Your motor looks Nice mate. Doing a good job there....
still wondering what I should do about the front grille and rims
BKZ187 I zip tied them back in but it just didn't look right as the bloke who wrecked them actually broke the mesh from the outer trim. Lesson learnt. He was a friend of a friend and did a great respray but dunno what happened with the grilles. By the time I found out it was too late to go back. I paid £180ish for the new set from memory so saved myself about £30-40. Sold my broken ones for £70 I think cos the centre had a chrome surround.
Cheers GreyT I tried to simplify things by losing some chrome. Had mixed comments but I prefer matt black to chrome
Get the Mesh Grill, keep the chrome rings but black the frame and go with some 19" OEM silver Rs6 rims or if you wanna push the boat out, get the LM's on it!!
proper upppdates soon.
Here is a quick pic update of mine
Ive started on mods
19" rims with 15mm spacers
Chrome mirror covers
S line badges
What do you think ppl
Great job i like it.
looking good bud. where did you get the mirror covers from?
They are from Chrome your car £30 and they advertise on E-bay
Thanks for coments
looking smart, spacers make a massive difference
yeah it looks good mate, not to much, dunno whats under them though.
Also has anyone got a picture of a 1.8 turbo exhaust set up?
Looks awesome Dsport.. How much is it lowered by.?
springs are Koni's and they take it down 35mm
In the pics the rears have settled as did them during the week, but did the fronts the day of the pic its droped more now
Love this, how much did you notice compared to the standard sport springs?
Do the mirrors just stick on?
The ride is a bit harder and feels more sharper, its not bone shacking.
The mirrors are a perfect fit and stick on with here is the link as a few have asked
AUDI A4 (2001-07) Chrome Wing Mirror Covers! NEW! on eBay (end time 24-Oct-10 10:40:01 BST)
cool thanks. I really want these, but not 100% sure if they will suit the look of my car. I guess for £30 its a cheap risk.
Looks great Dsport any close ups of the mirror covers? im wondering how well they sit around the actual mirror itself!
p.s did you get an s-line badge for the front grille too? been trying to find out which one i need forever!
latest of mine coils are here waiting to go on just trying to get it booked in somewhere for fitting!
if your on about the chrome door mirror covers i have a set there are a few kinds you can get one is the stick on ones so they just stick on over your old ones. two the ones i have you take off your case and put on the new chrome ones much better but do cost a bit more but well worth it i think
What coilovers have you decided to go for?
Car is very smart too!
Is there any chance you can post an updated picture of the ride height now please? Im trying to work out what to fit to my sport.
Thanks bud! Got some weitec hicon gt's
Few new ones of mine. Got my pressed plates on now. Sorry for quality. Taken on my phone
i like that mate looks good ;-)
What suspension setup have you got on this?
Not sure mate. It came like it. Thinkin of changing to coil overs. The back sits to high.
Let me know if you do, i'll take your current setup off your hands. Like the setup..
Yeah will let u know. May be a while as I am spending lots on servicing it cam belt water pump etc. Got so many ideas In my head that I want to do with it. First off is coilovers then wheels. Still deciding on wheels
i've just bought mine, that why im now trying to sort the ride height..
Are your Allosy 19's.? and any idea of what grade tint your windows are?
Yes mate they are 19" and the windows I'm not sure on. Would say the backs are limo black for sure
