Guys how about we get one of the vendors to pick up on getting some great door blades for Audi A6 (1999-2004 models) the big door blades that came off the 4.2 model.
I would really like to see a group buy for this it would be great to be able to fit these big blades on my 2.8!

lets get a vendor on this and see what they offer I am super interested in getting 4.2 door blades on my car. (Not the S6 ones those are made out of plastic if im not mistaken the ones from the 4.2 are actually painted if i am correct)

[up] for this, I've been thinking about doing this for a while now.

A6 4.2, S6, or RS6 blades, whichever.

Let's hear a price!

i was under the impression both are the same, being made out of a hardened resin

I don't think we can get Rs6 blades without putting the RS6 side skirts on the car. (I can't say I'm 100% sure on this but I called a place this morning and the guy told me that blades that come from a 4.2 are always painted the color of the car, the ones from the S6 are always not painted and made out of like that gray plastic, and RS6 ones are significantly larger than the ones from the 4.2 and need the side skirts from the RS6 to look properly)
I also initially said if I'm going to get the blades i will get the RS6 ones but after what the guy told me I don't know.


I say lets get some 4.2 blades going on!

well it doesnt really make sense cuz we have different colored cars, and most vendors order them...and to save money they do not have them painted because of how many different color cars there are and not everyones gonna want the same color obv.

anthony911

no what i meant was the one on the S6 always come the same color (plastic color)
the ones from the 4.2 can be painted to match the color of your car (obviously if we get in on a group buy they will be primed)

(This is what the guy told me)
However doing a few google searches all the S6 images that come up the door blades always seem to be the same color as the car


Lets get some door blades going on! (and if a vendor can just give a quick clarification on the difference between the s6 and 4.2 blades ((which i personally don't think there is any)) ) it would be appreciated!



Group Buys FTW!

I'd be interested pending price......either 4.2 or Allroad doorblades for me.

I would be down for the All Road door blades also. Those are aggressive looking blades.

s6 door blades i know for a fact dont come only in plastic-color because you see s6's with painted door blades as the 4.2s have...allroads have an aluminum finish and 4.2 and s6 door blades are the same, i hope that cleared something

anthony911
07-06-2009, 01:28 PM
yes that did....that being said....what is the best group buy for us

the S6 door blades?
I found a place that sells S6 door blades however they will only receive their stock in 1 month from today.
That's a lengthy wait hehe

Anyone know of a place where we can do a group buy and get them a little quicker?

RaudiA6

oemplus has them "primed" for painting and they are s6 blades..

http://oemplus.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=60_72&products_id=839


i would love it if a vendor could offer us a lower price possibly

anthony911
07-06-2009, 01:30 PM
thats exactly the place where I was referring too
however they will not receive stock on this for another month.

anyone whos tried to organize a group buy before, can you chime in and tell us how to get a vendor interested or is it just a matter of talking to them

still nada? this is kinda ironic, i think we have more than enough interest for a vendor to pop their head in!! hint-hint

I'm interested in this. I missed the last GB with oemplus and would love to get some 4.2 blade action.

i hate to be a party pooper but i went and got some door blades because no one (vendor) seems to be interested in starting a group buy.
im always up for good group buys though

Someone needs to take the intitive and call around to certain vendors and ask them personally if they would be interested in offering a group buy.

I am down for the buy. If the price is right.

07-25-2009, 02:49 PM

Looks like Oempl.us is the cheapest @ $265 for the S6 blades... I can't believe nobody else went after this.

Wofman told me at WF that last year's group buy for blades was something like $250 shipped (to the lower 48).

Im working to get the price on these. If the price will be good i will make it happen.
Looking to get 10 people minimum.

Guys, it is not realistic to get the price down any cheaper right now, the dollar/euro is not there/US Customs is actually charging duty now and Audi has raised the price on everything.

I am happy to do $300 shipped each, for a set of four no minimum quantity required...

http://www.shop.dthaus.com/images/A6DB.png (http://www.shop.dthaus.com/product.sc?productId=210&categoryId=62)

There is a painter (Audi enthusiastand AZ member) that goes by the s/n "onlyaudis" that could paint these for you.

This would have to be negotiated between you and him, I can drop them off with him with your shipping box and shipping label, however the quality and match would be between you guys.

FWIW is you want a set of B6 blades right now, be prepared to pony up $439

Seems like a decent price. The best I found was 278 sans shipping... For now [evilsmile]
