    Got a little bored on Saturday so I thought I'd wrap my grill in gloss black. Was a bit of a rush so i just did it at the top of the drive outside but it looks alright :)

    (Oh an can someone tell me how I can tighten the gap between the bonnet and grill?)

    P.S make sure you watch in atleast 1080p if you can.

    I say leave the rings, gives it a bit of contrast.

    Cool Thanks!

    Yes I had a minor bump last winter and haven't got round to fixing it yet.. The bumper wasn't damaged but I have it off a few weeks ago to get access to something and I kind of made the alignment worse!

    The laquer on the bumper is also peeling :( so I'm thinking I might as well go for the DTM front bumper..

    Must admit I took my bumper off to do mine, and separated the surround and grille to make it easier

    I think if planned to do it I would have done that but I was sat bored and just decided to do it like that as it was quicker :)


    Might do the badges in carbon fibre.

    I did the rear badge in Carbon fibre, it was a pain to do but did look good (gone now tho') front rings now gloss black to match RS4 grille surround. Also changed s-line badges to black ones.
