It been a while and finally found some spare time to create a thread for my 2004 50k mile A4 1.9tdi sport with GMBH kit in akoya silver and really happy to be back in an Audi as my last one was an S3 8L about 9 years ago, but been in VW's in between.

Black grills do look better.

Sweet looking car mate. You gonna drop the suspension?

Well i found some time to carbon wrap the upper and lower grills as the gloss black lower looked too hard on Akoya Silver in my opinion.

I think with the blacked out headlights with the carbon wrap works so far:

Have you painted the lower part of the rear bumper insert to all black as mine looks different as in a bit of body colour along the bottom as i was thinking of exhaust ideas other than changin the whole rear for a 1.8t looks great btw
