    Final bits of funds left for the car and not sure best option, either light smoke tints from b pillar back, or an rs4 grill...

    Tints are more practical with the kids and do look good, but after having an rs4 grill on my B7 I do like them as well

    Anyone got pics of a silver S4 (or s-line) with tints or the grill with chrome surround..?

    Personally I think tints at the back are a must with kids mate.
    Plus it looks great
    I think the rs4 grill would look immense on a silver one

    I have got the same issue! But i am swaying towards the tints, i had them as standard on my black edition A3 and i am missing the stealth look!

    Also is it me or are the std windows darker than usual? They certainly seem more tinted than on my B7, quite green as well...
    Tints were my initial thought but might sleep on it...

    Prefer the more OEM look of light smoke, plus with the current glass it'll be pretty dark anyway and still want to retain good visibility in the dark and rain

    At the risk of sounding repetitive, get the tints done first. They look good, but they do a job as well. Then sort out the RS4 grille when you've a few quid again (or arrange for it to be a Christmas present)..

    Actually realised it was 35% I had on mine, which they called light smoke, but some call dark smoke...

    Sorry had to shoot out for a meeting...will clean it tomorrow and get better pics :). It'll be worth the wait ;)

    Did rears only at 35%, with these cars you can't even put the lightest one on the fronts as the factory tint is already at 70%. Wanted to still keep classy without going too dark, especially with our **** weather anyway

    Interested to see what it looks like from the side. I'm defo going to do it at some point. Finishes the look of the avant nicely I think.

    If anyone's interested in a set of Honeycomb fog surrounds, SE model only, to go with their new RS4 grille, drop me a pm.
    razza, tints look spot on mate, hope you don't mind me taking the above opportunity on your thread.
    Cheers
