    Loving her mate, shes a stunner. Think the wheels strangely suit the car quite nicely. Lows and some blacking will look pretty sweet.I have that exact interior. I think the grey/black looks cool.

    Like it mate, All you need now is the Cupra front Splitter........

    Im going for a set of 19" Merc rims on my car soon, Just trying to work out which ones......
    What needed to be done to fit the Porker rims?

    Mines lowered on Eibach 50/40's (So on the S-Line it works out to 30mm drop at the front and 20mm drop at the rear) and its superb, Stance is good and drives lovely.......

    Heres a side on of mine......

    NO rubbing at all....AND its a nicer ride than the standard "Crashy" S-Line springs.

    Mines the SE Black Edition so has the black roof rails, door trims, grill, RS4 Le Man 18's, Black headlining, same seats as yours and alcintra steering wheel, hand brake and gear knob ect...

    I love mine, I know it's newer but it's light years ahead of the mk4 for build quality.

    I put H&R 45mm springs on mine, with B5 front spring seats. Dropped nicely and rides better than standard S-line stuff so no complaints here :happy:

    Its only a 30mm/20mm drop if you have OEM S-Line Suspension as thats all ready 20mm lower........

    The back might rub judging by how far the rears stick out!!!!, i assume thats throm the adapter plates for the Porsche rims?

    Yea i alreadi have s line suspension, the back needs very little to be honest as im sure it will rub unless i go to 15mm adaptors on rear but i dont think it will have enough poke then, 50 front would b ok as it would only be 30, back wants about 10mm drop, might have be coils but idealy wanted just springs

    Just fitted FK coils on mine - only have the fronts in so far but the ride is very similar to the s-line set up IMHO and mine is pretty low up front. (Can only just turn full lock with standard 235 40's) I was expecting it to be super harsh as they are only cheap coilovers but I was pleasantly surprised. food for thought !

    Well been slow updateing this build, been really busy with work ect.
    Last update i had painted my own grill but after 3 days i could see the paint chipping and showing the chrome underneith which i wasnt happy with so i ordered a genuine black grill from audi and plate holder (wasnt cheap lmfao), pic's below,
    Whilst doing the grill i managed to source some black roof rails from a member on here and have also fitted them along with some black s-line badges on the doors and front grill and a black audi badge on the front aswell. Next mod is to get the chrome window trim wrapped and to get the car lowerd and sitting how i would like, will be needing info on that soon. also possibly a lcr front spliter

    Black Grill and rails

    it wasnt too bad of a job to be honest pal, just time consuming and fiddley.
    Main reason i took my time was that i kept washing my hands so as to not get grease monkey prints on my roof lol.
    I wouldnt be in a rush to do it again tho lol

    Next up chrome window trim

    Quick pic as i havent updated in a little while. Basicly i have been skint and the build has ground to a hault, a egr cooler breaking didnt help, so sometime in the near future i will be doing a complete egr delete and cooler delete and another re-map. All being well i should be lowering the car in the next few week and having the wheels refurbed (not sure on what colour yet black or dark grey with red barrels) :) All suggestions on wheels are appreciated

    Gave it another good polish at the weekend

    Yea pal I got a multimedia adaptor of eBay which I'll be selling soon as I've just purchased one with twin video input, I then bought a digital tv tuner of eBay but a half decent one with twin Ariels. I then hid all that under the dash and put the remote control eye in the corner of the dash and the ariels in the windows and jobs a good un, I can lend a hand if you like as your local
