    I’ve touched in a few stone chips I had on the front inner arch of my B8 and looking online Audi fitted some guards on the B8.5 to prevent the damage. Has anyone with a Pre facelift B8 fitted them? If so how did you do it? I’m hoping it’s just as simple as double sided tape and no drilling is required (fingers crossed)

    Pretty sure 8.5 arches have holes to attach. I put mudflapson flaps on the front of my S4 to give some protection as it was the bottom of mine that were getting blasted

    Until now I’d never heard to it..... quick google search and it certainly sounds some impressive stuff! That could well be an option thanks

    The 8.5 guards come with tape attached,you just need to cut off the taps that go into the B8.5 wings as the B8 doesn't have the holes

    I just cut the pegs off as low as I could, ie below the level of the surrounding plastic moulding, then used some serious and thick double sided tape cut to the correct width and shape to fill the area where the original short sections of sticky tape were - maybe even overkill type of tape like the stuff used to secure interior mirrors etc!

    Thanks sounds straight forward enough, if you don’t mind me asking how much did you pay for the guards? I’m heading to my local Audi on Monday to enquire.

    Back in 2014 £23.09 for both including VAT, I'd be checking your local dealer's price before paying Crewe Audis price to get them to your door though!
