    Just got mine today for my a4,not had a proper look at the car yet but i take it there is nothing funny when it comes to fitting them? I think they pulled the door trims off before they realised that they slide off when you take the screw out so they are a bit bent. Anybody know if you can but the bit that clips to the door on its own? All the cover bits that you see when fitter are fine. I never realised each trim was in two bits like that,i thought it would be the same as the a4 ones.

    The S4 door trim plate fits onto the same pins as the A4 ones. Then the outer coloured bits clip onto the door trim bit

    Yeah. Can you buy the plate part on its own? I should be able to get them all to go on ok but would be handy to know if i can get them.

    Its just strong velcro that holds the skirts at the sides then a bracket at the rear and it bolts to the front wing and a couple of small brackets go onto the seam where you jack the car up so support the skirts a bit. Should be pretty easy. The brackets for holding the small trim to the front wing and back arch are a bit goosed so i think i will just stick them on with tiger seal. I think i will just fit the skirts then sort out the sill trims. I have one but its not the best but i should be able to do something with it. Cant wait to get them on with the front bumper too.

    They're just normal pre-facelift A4 brackets.

    If you have a prefacelift car you wont need to change them.

    The facelifted s4 has the mounting holes drilled in a different position as the prefacelift a4. Still fits right even with 2 screws !

    Got the skirts on now and my new wings. Just need to put the door trims on after i tidy up the bottoms of the doors. Looks much better already and the votex rear bumper extension seems to fit in nicely with everything else. Ill get some pics up when i get the door trims on and the car is clean. I should have some s4 wheels in anthracite to replace my silver ones soon too so its getting there now.

    Just left it off for now. It was a pain to try and get it off without damaging it.

    Ill try and get a couple of pics tonight of whats done so far. I thought i was getting some s4 wheels in anthracite soon but the guy sold them after agreeing price etc with me and just waiting on him getting back about a courier. Ill just have to get mine refurbed in that colour then when the better weather is here.

    Some pics so far. The front wings look worse in the light of the camera flash than they doe for real. They are a slightly different shade still but not that bad.
