    Finally got round to fitting the RS4 front bumper to the A4. Fabricated our own mounts which work VERY well, and was a fairly straight foward job to do. The car is going to the bodyshop on Saturday so they can start on it early next week.
    Also having the sides and rear lower painted. Should look good when done....can't wait to get it back!!!

    Will post all of the pics when finished.....

    /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif Thats the next thing when the when I come round to it....having the current sides and rear painted was just a temporary measure until I put proper sides and rear on it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    I may be jealous though once you get your beast on the road! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    She looks sweet, colour really suits her too.

    Has she got side skirts on?

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Cheers......no skirts, just had the lowers painted!

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Jay,

    Car looks great, I really like the colour. What paint did you used for the lowers? Was there a need to do any special prep work for the plastic mud guards? Also what the hell did you do for the sills inside the door? Did you have to paint them also? If you havent guessed I am looking at doing mine also.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Thanks! I'm not sure what paint was used. I only did prep work for the RS4 bumper which I just used plenty of wet & dry and got everything silky smooth, then handed it over to a bodyshop to do the work. I did no prep work to the sides. They did a great job for me!! They painted the sides and partial door sill leaving the main inside black (which is what i wanted due to getting scuffed with shoes). Here is a picture....

    Looks great Jase.

    I'd wondered about the inside of the sills myself actually because mine has the nice chrome badge which l obviously don't want to lose... What happens to that when sideskirts are fitted? Do the skirts bond on underneath that part of the sill?

    Looks good though, they did a great job.

    Cheers

    You can cut a thin strip off the edge of the black bit that surrpounds that chrome audi bits. To fit the skirts there are some pics on audi world.

    Cool, cheers Markey. It would be good to see exactly how they fit.

    Do you have standard skirts or S4's?

    Cheers

    before my rs4 one I had a the rieger splitter which looked similar to that with the vents at side . Quite liked it; looks very agressive and rare as didn`t see anyone else with it.

    The rs4 looks better though.

    Those pics just look like a standard front bumper with a lower splitter fitted, not really a 'Touring Car' bumper per-say.

    It may actually be that the lower black trim has been removed and REPLACED with the splitter rather than just grafting the splitter on as an extra.
