    I've had the grille on a while now Rob, thats the one that was your many moons ago. Very happy with it, finishes the front end off lovely.

    Don't panic Rob, not forgot about that job just yet. Actually blasted the calipers yesterday as it happens. They've cleaned up very nicely, im actually suprised at the overall condition. IMG_20200809_31167.jpg IMG_20200809_23302.jpg

    Thanks buddy, i had a go at wrapping them a while ago, the concept looked mint but wrapping just wasn't the answer for me. I plan on keeping an eye out for a complete spare set

    Spray them. It's easy and quick. 4 coats and it'll last forever

    I’m not sure they’re an easily removable part?

    As in, can be removed from an existing car without damage?

    I though it looked familiar..looks good on your avant now, the rs4 grilles really do make the front end look so much nicer.

    Any thoughts on colour, red would be good even on a red car.

    The trim that goes the full length above the windows is riveted on from the inside, so its a full interior strip down jobby

    And doors also to get the top strip off! If that's your plan I'll be the first to applaud you, you're keen!

    I had decided on the same metallic grey/silver colour of the oem Audi ceramic brakes caliper colour. Should look nice and oem+ and match well with my rears too

    Yep the door weather strips require the door frames to be removed too. Luckily i take cars apart for a living so its no major feat!

    Ha, I wish. Down to two now

    Goal was to make the best B7 I can and best way has been to buy many and make the best spec that I can in one.

    Also done my part in keeping a few on the road a little bit longer so I'm happy with my efforts but closing this chapter now, and clearing out!

    It's great in did! A part of losing some of the button commands that I already have on my current wheel! The flat design is not so different from the one I have in place... and I'm short of bugdet right now ... after so many many RS4 mods operated:whistle2:

    Very nice! Big KMs for a BLB!

    Keep the later S-Line FBSW wheel you have. Probably the best and it's full leather the whole way round.

    Interested in what rear facing camera setup you have though Mauro

    Yeap, I will keep my FBSW wheel for sure, it's very comfortable, all leather as well!
    For the rear facing camera (automatically on RNS-E when you put the reverse), you will need a multimidia interface (125€) and the rear camera with back handle support integrated (55€)...I can pm you with friend's email, and he will supply you with all stuff needed and give you full support as well.

    Yes that would be great Mauro :icon thumright:

    Need to check it won't interfere with my current audio setup and not a big fan of the rainbow lines but Rear facing camera is definitely on my list.

    Is your camera mounted underneath your boot release handle?

    That was a lucky spot, more than likely sold from the same dealer at the same time.

    The "S" is for sport mode function which is specific to the RS4 B7
    one of the nice bonus things is that the + / - and set button now control the DIS control instead of the stalk buttons, really nice feature.

    Really pleased in the improvement after fitting the B12 kit, in looks and ride quality.
    Stuttgart grey wheels next.
