    Black rings good, turbo badge not so good! Is it an escort rs turbo badge? Cars looking good mate, white definatly suits the car. Love mine to be white! I got carbon fibre rings on mine, found them on ebay. Complete rip off though! But could suit yours perfectly mate, if i can ill get some pics if you like

    I love the badge! I think it looks good, its a porsche replica, couldn't find a real one and was not going main dealer for that! Yeah post up a pic of the carbon one if you can.
    I'm loving the white too, it looks really really good i've not even put half of it back together yet and i cant stop looking at it, so pleased i deceided to change the colour.

    Hello! Quick update, the wife dropped the laptop and broke it which is why i've not been on here for a while!
    Cars nearly done, just need the rear bench in black, put the middle door mouldings on and extend the exhaust out an inch so its sits nice in the S4 bumper.
    My AP coilovers have now been replaced with FK highsports and should be here next week.
    Cant show any pics cos the laptops busted!!

    Hello everyone, My laptop still isn't fixed so i'm never online, should be geeting it back soon though. The car's back on the road and looking great, getting alot of positive feedback from it so i'm a happy man. Some bloke nearly crashed his lorry this morning from staring at it!! My coilovers are due to be here first week in september so really looking forward to that, got the car on a stand in trax at silverstone on the 5th of septamber so its gonna be tight. I'll get some pics up as soon as my laptop's back

    I saw this audi going thou wokingham town centre the other day, just a quick heads up your speed was a tad too much and very dangerous for the amount of traffic and people that were around. Not very happy!

    Honest opinions, by the way the air intake has now been sprayed black

    I love it, getting alot of looks and positive comments on it, wait till its lowered and it'll look even better!

    Agreed, not to keen on them myself but just wanted it back on the road (funds ran out!) so i sprayed them up black and fitted them (they were bright green!). Picking up some A8 monoblocks in the week. So next weekend if all goes to plan and the coilovers arrive it'll be looking amazing, ready for the westside show in slough

    :hubbahubba: looks stunning, could do with some better wheels and being lowered a little but sounds as if you're already on the case :cool:

    Normally dont like that type of front bumper, or the wheels, but it seems to look much better on yours.

    Was thinking about the air duct when i saw it but seen at the end u already sprayed it black, good choice.

    Overall, looks fan-feckin-tastic mate, bet your pleased with the outcome!

    Only 2 things wrong, first is the resize images don't do the car justice (looks like you use microsoft paint to resize) second is the wheels they just don't work with the white. The paint job looks amazing, any tips for beginner spray painters?

    What suspension is on it just now?

    I like the ride height as it is!

    I'd probably go with a gunmetal/anthracite type color on the wheels rather than black though.

    White does look pretty good!

    Whats all the black soot on the rear bumper? its not a derv is it?

    No not at all, Everyone is entitled to there own opinion.
    Thanks for all the comments, its on standard sport shocks with 30mm eibach springs. I like my cars real low so coilovers are the way forward for me, got some AP's en route, should be here tomorrow fingers crossed.

    Once the mono's are on in white and the coilovers are fitted it'll completly transform the car, again! keep tuned!...........................

    Diesel Engined Road going Vehicule or there abouts... I would like it as it is mate, most coilovers only screw-up the handling...

    Derv = diesel engined road vehicle

    Ie if the black sooty mark on the bumper is from a petrol engine, theres something wrong with it.
