RS6 wheels are truly the most suited for the 8P without a doubt, everytime I see them they never fail to please IMHO

Any chance of a rough breakdown on the cost and parts involved? Thank you :)

Looks brilliant by the way!

I've got a red split grille and it's starting to tempt me.

Tints are either 30% or 35% all round.

They are BUT they got to go! I want something different

Well hard to say really my price could be different to what you could get them for.

Quick breakdown:
Bonnet from Audi £200
Front bumper from ebay £90
Grill £80
Skirts + brackets from Audi £320ish
Rear bumper from ebay £170
Spoiler from ebay £70

Thinking of getting all the grey bits on the bumpers and roof wrapped in carbon. If i did the mirrors aswel do you think it would be to much??

Conversion looking great mate. Would love to get round to doing mine but it always comes down to the money. As for the carbon wrap on the mirrors i think it might be a little to much, i'd look at getting the fogs before anything else. Great job.

I know the felling mate its taken me months to collect everything! The fogs are on a long list i need to do, im use to the car without them at the mo so they can wait. Wheels and carbon are on top!

Another on my list! Do you know if the Audi ones are worth buying? I was going to pay a visit to the local custom exhaust guy and get a qoute off him done properly then

where can i buy them from? what kind of price are they? are they genuine rs6s or reps?

Not to sure if my wheels are reps or not! Think they are, prices range have a look on ebay. Also the springs i got off ebay for around £120 but they go for about £150

Strange your on 50mm Eibachs, I am too and mine sits a lot lower on the front that yours, about the same on the back

Your wheels are ****** up too mate, you have 3 replicas and 1 genuine. The genuine one is on the drivers side rear. I bet it looks weird from the back as the reps stick out 10mm more than the genuines!!

Ye you needed the bonnet plus from reading on here no need for the slam pannel, just cut 20mm by about 30cm off the bottom of each side and fit like a glove!

Seriouly dont know what to do about wheels! Dont think they will be BBS or S3's, want to be different.

Spoiler aint OEM i bought one off eBay and was supprised the fitting, shape and quality was very good!! Springs are eiback sportlines 50mm

Haha good spot!!! The wheels were like that when i bought them! (women driver) I HATE kerbed wheels!! And the reason for the genuine one is that girlfriend (now ex haha) hit a pot hole and damged one so lucky my mate had a spare, again KURBED but will do for now
 

Blueie

fair enough mate you have plenty to chose from after all i still cant decide on what wheels im getting lol

To much to choose from which does my nut in!!:scared2:
Might just bite the bullet and go BBS or S3:blink:

Blueie

He who dears' wins!!
im in the same situation mate dont worry i dont know what wheels to go for bbs reps of rs6 reps im on a buget so cant get real bbs rims unfortunatly but there we go cant have everything lol

SNAP! Its taken me so long to do this and save. Wheels will have to be reps to, I am tempted to go for Phat 5's. Just waiting on some pics

Thanks!
