    Some very nicely-judged mods! Like the way the grill and mirrors match up with the opensky roof; very subtle but it works well.

    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.

    Did you buy the black audi rings seperately or did they come on the grill?

    Looks well mate finishes the car off.

    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.:rockwoot:

    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.

    Just a personal opinion but would look better with the chrome rings - just looks too plain imho.

    Like the black grille though.

    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.

    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.

    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
