    I was bored today so put my fat fives off my old A4 on the car to see how they look.

    They only have 225/40 tyres on them so look a little skinny and stretched. But I love um

    (and don't worry I am not missing a wheel nut, that is the locking one on the back and I don't have the wheel nut covers for them)

    @ CMD - car looks very nice, get her to show you how to upload bigger pics ;)

    The S4 has it's own unique front and rear bumpers.

    Loving the new S4 dsmclark30v it looks rather nice I must say. I think you should leave the door blades as they are! They look ace! I prefer the Avus wheels as mentioned by others also.

    What car did you have before?


    And loving the blackened A4 mattyboyc, very nice indeed! I debedged my A4 on saturday, but kept the rings. I had considered blackening everything but think i'm going to keep the chrome look...it's easier and cheaper :)

    Cheers mate, I must say the door blades have grown on me and I like them unpainted. My last car was a B5 2.8quattro

    Crofty90 - it looks like a s4 bumper to me

    may well be, not trying to piss on your fire mate it's a nice motor just doesn't look like it's got a lip on the bottom of the front bump like J7USS's has.

    Ultra Sport Package, or USP is the US term for the S-Line style kit.

    just didn't want you to find out it had had a front end smash and someones just bunged a standard bump on for cheapness, seeing as it should have a lip if it's s-line

    That lip is from the S-Line style, the S4 is a totally separate model to this.

    Just got my car back on thursday last week but due to the crappy weather i couldnt take any pics!. first we had Heavy FOG and then SNOW.... England..... tut tut ...

    anyway, i had some work done, apart from the repair to my broken arch after it had an unfortunate meeting with a lamp post.

    Audi OEM S4 Bumper including matt black grilles, s4 matt black upper grille, side skirts body colour coded.

    rear bumper from a quattro sport TDI. i didnt want a dual exhaust S4 bumper because i didnt want to change my exhaust.

    what do you guys think?


    quattrojames, dont hate me.... :)

    i know the colours of the body work dont exactly match, but i know it has had a bump or two before. came out really well i think.

    before shots:

    thanks
    they are an HID Xenon Kit. i got the 6000k ones.
    new fog lights with stock bulbs because the S4 grilles are not compatible with the A4 fogs. one was misting up anyway so i think the seal had broken.

    the kits are around £70 to £80 for good ones.


    @ dannyFR+tdi --- i know it would look better but i honestly love the feel of SE suspension. plus i cant be bothered to mess with it... lol

    Nice S4 Bumper, definately transforms the car. I have been looking for front and rear but can't find any for love or money :blownose: where did you get the bumper from?

    no, totally different

    SE front - the gray part on the bottom is seperate, clips on after the bumper in blue is fitted. grilles smaller as they have vents in place in the grey part.

    [​IMG]

    S4 Front - all one piece. just grilles clip in.

    [​IMG]



    i got it from an ebay seller, but didnt get them often. i drove from sunderland to north wales to pick it up. came with the 3 bottom grilles for £300

    i think at the dealers it was £365 just for the bumper, no grilles. £20 for the fog light grilles (each) and £80 for the centre lower one.

    Haha I don't hate you :icon_thumright:

    It just proves to me that the S4 front is the best looking B6 front! This picture especially!

    The car looks great mate, have you thought about black rings to go with the graphite grille? Would finish it off nicely.

    I agree on the SE suspension, although yours doesn't look as high as mine. Ride comfort is second to none, but mine really does need a lower.

    Thanks i appreciate that.

    i kinda want to keep the chrome rings, because i took off so much, like the lower and upper centre grilles.

    could it not be because i have 19 " wheels and you have 18", maybe the difference in size makes it look different.

    my old 18" RS4s from when i first bought it.

    [​IMG]

    and my 19" S8 Reps now.

    [​IMG]

    i dont know, can you see a difference?

    Yeah maybe, but normally 19's look even worse than 18's!

    Your car seems to break that rule though....

    have you got any pics of your car? cant seem to find them.

    is there like a members garage type thing?

    You know, i was looking at those comparison pics i just posted, and i actually think that the S8 reps i have go really well with the car. im sorting out centre caps for them next. gonna mod some original audi caps to fit. need 70mm to go inside the chrome rings.
    would still love some spare wheels to swap them from time to time, like the s-line wheels.
    maybe i can trick my brother into buying them. we can all interchange the wheels, but i wouldnt use his green bbs.

    Sorry I've just seen this, I've not really got any recent ones since the splitter/blades etc was fitted. I will take some soon when the weather picks up and the show season begins :thumbsup:

    Until then, just this quick and dirty one:
