    @Quattro GmbH 63 I managed to get a side on picture of the car today, I think it sits a bit low at the back and a bit high at the front

    I'm pretty sure it was meant to be -45 but I don't think it dropped the front by much at all, it looks like yours was sitting lower than mines as standard

    Heres how it used to sit

    maybe they were 30mm drop mate, as you say the front hasnt dropped much over s-line springs which are 25mm drop, 5mm isnt much more drop on the front .

    It's really nice (I have grill envy) but guessing it's £££££? Only OEM RS4 grill i've seen was about £480

    You may well be right there, I'm thinking about getting rid of the lot as I think my shocks are getting a bit tired, I'll be going down the coilover route when I do.

    Cheers mate, unfortunately, for what it is, it is very expensive, but for us SLine guys it's one of the only options we have.

    yep thats about right, sometimes come up cheaper but not often, some can be more.

    i picked my new one up for silly money just before xmas £290 on ebay new and boxed with the brushed ally finish surround, but used my gloss black surround in the end and sold the silver one , so a win win situation.

    you are so right mate, s-line owners do get hammered for a lot of parts it seems.

    I'll keep checking eBay but it looks like doing the rs6 mod is the most reasonable way of going about it. High pressure job though, don't want to be needing two takes!

    Fitted a new recirc valve tonight, been putting it off for a while... Completely different car, sooo much quicker!

    Think the seal on the old one was slightly past its best!

    Not today (Sunday actually)...

    Swapped front springs.

    Replaced front lower arm shock bush because I was convinced the SuperPro polyurethane one was squeaking. It still squeaks so I'm suspecting spring seats or top mounts.

    To do today - find a new 501 bulb in my garage and replace driver's footwell light.

    looking very nice, i have to agree sometimes tailgate badges look wonky in pics but in reality they are fine, i think its an optical illusion . You just need to sort out those exhaust tips now chap for some nice straight ones, downer are ok but never really look quite a snice as straight tips , just my input.
