    i think im gonna save me cash for now,just put some bigger a6 tips on mine and looks great, as far as i can tell its still the original exhaust so might be needing to replace it in the near future anyhway, so will decide closer to the time,
    might use the money on getting it lowered instead, you seen my badges? lol

    That looks top. I love the perforated door cards. It must be a headache having to change the plastics to black so that it looks just right.

    How much you get the DTM/RS4 style pedals? Im digging that!

    Here are a few shots from today after spending about 5 hours washing, polishing and waxing. Used one of the old aircraft hardened shelters to stay out of the showers. A couple of friends joined in, Tomo with his lovely A6 3.0 Tdi and Paddy with his imacculate E60 520d.

    Cheers Mark. Paddies E60 is lovely, great drive really smooth. The 2 ltr BMW diesel is a stonking motor 180bhp, it feels a bit more lively than the 1.9 130 pd motor even after the remap.

    Cheers SL11 CKK they were a right pain to fit had to pull most of the car apart to fit them but worth it in the end they look so much better black. The pedals and footrest are from an RS4 I got them off eBay for the bargain price of £60 definitely a good mod to do if you can get hold of some

    I have been thinking of getting spacers, but was thinking I should wait till I lower it before I get some to work out how wide to go, or will 20mm be ok when lowered?? Do people just do the rears?? What about the fronts?

    Depends on what ET your wheels are and how wide they are. A good benchmark is about Et35

    What's the ride like? Any problems with speed bumps or such? Your car sits just right tempted toget the same springs and b5 perchs for mine.
