    Anyone got black side blades on a silver S4? In two minds about it, but thinking of painting then gloss as per the front splitter bar, and the gloss black RS4 grill, as already got black badges on the rear. Thinking do that and then black out the chrome window trim as well....

    Just not sure...

    No pics @razza1 but sounds cool to me, I have 1/2 mind to look at getting my side blades wrapped in carbon fibre, along with wing mirrors and supercharged badges, might be a bit much on Ibis white though :blink:

    All the BE plus editions I've seen look fantastic with the gloss black mirrors and side blades :yes:

    Carbon fibre did cross my mind, but thinking the paint is cheaper lol

    I'm going to be doing this soon on my A4, but its to compliment the piano black theme already running on my car.
    When finished the following will all be painted piano black:
    - RS4 Grille & Surround
    - Side sills
    - Roof
    - Caractere boot spoiler
    - ABT style rear valance
    - chromed door frame surrounds also to be piano black

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first post so go easy on me!

    I've been doing the same sort of mods to my A4 Avant S Line. I've had the grille, front bumper lip, mirror caps, window chrome, roof rails and rear diffuser all sprayed in gloss black. I've not gone as far as doing the side blades black yet, but I have gloss black vinyl that I'm going to wrap them in to see what I think before I 'commit'.

    Photos attached below so let me know what you think!

    Cheers! I'll be wrapping the blades in the next couple of weeks so I'll post some updated photos once they're done.

    OK.. I've not seen this section of trim highlighted before. Can't imagine it in a majorly contrasting colour.

    @Matt Cunningham. I'd say you need to do your boot spoiler too.

    I'm machine polishing the car this weekend so I'll take some photos with a decent camera rather than a phone and I'll photoshop the blades black so you can see what it will look like.

    The black spoiler could be a good shout Viceroy!

    Hi folks - As promised, I took some better photos of the car after machine polishing and I've photoshopped the image below to show the side blades in black. Think I'm going to go for it! Black Side Blades (Large).jpg
