Just a few cosmetic touches...
Looks spot on mate :thumbsup:
Some very nicely-judged mods! Like the way the grill and mirrors match up with the opensky roof; very subtle but it works well.
Lovely, can't wait till I give mine, a proper wash and take some lovely pics
You've got a lovely car there. Not sure about black out rings though. Being silver car thought you might have left then chromed.
But yeah i like it. Black mirrors is a nice touch.
just thought. black grille/black mirrors/black roof bars would have looked amazing
That would off been near impossible to find second hand.
But yes, i agree.
Looks lovely mate, have to agree with JimmyJames on the black rings mate.
Thanks guys, i was thinking about spraying the s-line badge black too, but just left a little bit of colour there.
Either way TDI. Looking very nice, you look after your car, so I have to admire you
Did you buy the black audi rings seperately or did they come on the grill?
Looks well mate finishes the car off.
Grill looks good Did you fit it yourself?
Dont like black audi rings, looks like the chromes been stolen
Looks awesome, love your rims.
TDI- how did you get on with the exhaust tips in the end...did you change them or stick with them?...Cars looks great:icon_thumright:
very nice lad!!!
i really like that, looks spot on, oem yet different, which I think is a hard thing to do and get right!
Well done fella
Mein gott, a mod I like ( the black grill )
I removed them from the original grill, which was no mean feat! I used phantom black Audi spray and lacquer and give them about 5 coats, but as they are not baked on, they may chip.
There is no existing part for black rings.
I got the idea from Mitch.
I had a go, removed the three torque screws from the top of the grill, and then realised there was more to it.
So i booked the car into Jabba Sport and they removed the bumper, fitted the grill and also fitted the wing mirrors too, took 2 hours.
Oh yes, i forget to take pics.
Basically i had a new standard 140 back box fitted by Jabba Sport. So it looks the same as any other s-line 140 now. I didn't want to spend loads on a Milltek as there is no point if i am keeping the engine standard.
I am honoured mine liege.
Like it ...... gives a good contast and sharp look.
Just a personal opinion but would look better with the chrome rings - just looks too plain imho.
Like the black grille though.
Black grill ... Spot on!!
Thanks for the postive comments guys.
No more mods are planned for the car now.:busted_cop:
Love it! Optics grill suits it perfectly. A very mean look >)
You checking up on me.
Nice wheels, nice roof , well specified car, but would look a whole lot better without Black door mirrors and the all black grill. Sorry but the guys in the pub all agree too.
^^^^^^^Are you in the pub? have a pint of Stella for me? LOL
Just a quick update, the black rings had a few stone chips on, even after my excessive painting and varnish protection.
So have reverted back to the original chrome rings.
Looking good. A set of black alloys might finish the whole thing off nicely.
Look Good Tdi-line.
Yes, that's what i was thinking...
Yes very good idea.
I'll be the first in the queue for those 20 spokes please!
I was thinking of having mine stripped polished and the centres paintin anthracite ... or selling them.
selling them sounds like a good idea to me
I have just bought a set of folding mirrors and was thinking of changing my mirrors caps at the same time.
Cant decide if to go for black to match the optics or chrome, what do you think?
ps thanks to mdre83 for the photoshop
