    Bonded some black mesh into the grill surround, tbh I did this a few weeks ago. Current to do list includes lowered suspension and fix the air con which has never worked. Might be uneconomic to fix though.

    Thanks Jake, will be doing the lowers but the fog grilles are a bit tricky. Haven't got my head round it yet.

    Very well stripped on the plus side, bet a fair bit of cash was recovered from it, nicely done.

    Shame they don't fit! I need the ones with a threaded end as fitted to b7's as I have a '54 plate that has a lot of b7 parts.
    These are supposed to fit 2001-2004 but not a '54. Tut.

    Agreed, that's an A4 grille not an S4 one, I hope we're not bearers of bad news...

    Nice, any pictures of the alloys.

    Oh and today I fitted spacers, may post pictures later but it's hard to tell the difference really.

    Hopefully will be on Monday evening. They are just standard 17" 5 spoke Sport alloys. Can't remember the name but painted matt black. Hopefully they will go well against the green like the front grille does.

    That's what I've got but in silver, thinking of spacers but unsure what size.
