    Ok folks I am after some opinions. I as many of you already know own a 2011 Audi A4 Dynamik Quattro 2.0 TFSI. This is based on the SE model but with the Dynamik package.

    Wheels and suspension
    19-inch Black hollow-spoke wheels
    Sport suspension (lowers car by 20mm)
    Sport seats upholstered in Milano leather
    3-spoke multi-function steering wheel

    Exterior
    Metallic paint
    Black styling pack (Ibis white and Brilliant red cars only)
    Body styling kit - Side and rear lower body enhancements
    Front and rear diffuser blade in contrasting colour
    Black blade for Ibis White, Brilliant Red and Quartz Grey
    Aluminium effect blade for Phantom Black

    Audio and communication
    DVD navigation
    Audi Music Interface
    Bluetooth Interface

    Safety and security
    Acoustic Parking System Plus (front and rear)
    Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights with adaptive light

    I love my car and the way it looks (which really is all that matters). I would say 99% of people who have seen it in the flesh pass admiring comments. However on this forum specifically there are definitely a number of haters. Seems that many think its the 'Halfords' spec model however they then go on to mention mods they have done to their own cars. Hmm. I prefer mine 'pre Halforded' lol.

    Anyway i would appreciate any opinions and i am not interested in the how fast how much power etc as its a 2.0 TFSi as fitted elsewhere in the range.

    Very nice! Where was the pic taken? A 20mm drop is really suiting those 19's Sir!

    I don't think yours is a marmite car! I think it looks great and the Dynamik package gives it an aggressive look. I don't know where the 'Halfords' comments have come from unless you've stuck things on I can't see because other than that it's standard isn't it? Love the wheels and I've seen a few in the flesh too... Keep at it fella!

    I like the car and think it looks smart!

    The only thing i'd do is spray the wheels fully matt black but thats just because i love matt black wheels at the moment!

    Love the look of the Dynamiks personally, the alloys are really nice, the extras just give it something else to seperate it from the rest of the range. They'll always be lovers and haters for everything, it's really down to personal choice, for instance I can't stand all the people that put carbon fibre sticker things on the interior and exterior, but they like it.

    I had a removable towbar fitted (Witter). I get some strange looks when i arrive at a site with my caravan on tow. To be honest the car tows fantastically and the Quattro helps on slippy wet grass sites and when towing in general. When i get set up its tow mirrors off, towbar off, and blast off!!!!

    I fecking love the look of the Dynamic, especially yours. I think its different and that makes it good. I think I like the avant in white better than the saloon, estates just look cool nowadays. I almost bought one but didn't as at the time it was only done in 2.0 tfi with chrome kit but now they do the avant with black grille, window trimes and roof rails and a 170 TDI but it was just out of my price bracket.

    It don't matter what anyone else thinks anyway, as long as you feel great in it and love looking at it, thats all that matters.

    Stunning in white and has a very aggressive stance and look about it,but from a personal point of view I'm not too keen on the wheels-but you like them and that's what counts at the end of the day

    I like the way these look so aggressive have alot more presence on the road compared to normal a4s. Only thing I don't like is the wheels I think it would look even better on rotors.

    DOH! So how does the body kit differ from a sline, or is it differant? Looks great bar the wheels, and id DEFINATELY have the 30mm suspension drop.10mm makes a massive differance!

    Much better looking than the standard A4 which looks too much like a typical 'company car'. Personally I'd have had it black myself, but nothing wrong with it in white

    I've got Lava which is obviously the best colour but I am a big fan of Daytona grey. The B8 looks good in any colour so you can't go wrong really.

    Love it <3 I see what people mean about the alloys but you need black on white and there isn't better black Audi alloys, plus your alloys wouldn't look the same totally black.

    Was this the body kit that was available from audi as an after sales option? I remember seeing a black 3.0tdi in the showroom when i bought mine in 09 with the dealer fit kit.Very aggressive front end.I jizzed when i saw it.Seem to remember not being able to have a full drop and 19's on it.I reckon its the same kit.And yes it is stunning bar the wheels.Great in black or white.

    I like the look of it mate, alloys are not for me (maybe if all one colour and Matte) but the body kit suits it and the spec is impressive.

    All that matters is that you like it :)

    The front bumper/splitter, rear bumper and side skirts are all availible to buy direct from Audi. IIRC they're all around the £250+ VAT mark and then need painted too...
