    Did all b6 Audi a4's come with the fabric type wheel arch liners? Mine get clogged up with grass and mud was wondering if earlier or later cars came with the plastic type which seem easier to pressure wash off?

    My car is a 2003 avant

    think they are all the same if they were just plastic one you would get a lot more road noise so audi use this kind. a good jet wash always sorts them out and stop driving on grass :p

    I have fabric on the front left and both rears and plastic on the front right. No idea why. Wonder if it was replaced before I owned it and material one was superceded with a plastic one?

    only takes for some one at a garage after doing some thing not to refit all the screws and they would come off going down the motorway as im sure no one would think the engine trays could fall off but they do too'. **** iv been driving down the road and seen a petrol tank fall off a car lol
