    If I was you I would definitely black out the trim and color code your mirror housing with the gunmetal wheels. Car looks absolutely stunning as is though but the trim needs blackening unless you had hyper silver rs4s..

    Would be nice if the only gunmetal on the car was your mirrors and wheels. Brakes look stunning against the grey. That extra .5 of an inch from 8.5 on replicas to 9" on your OEMs really makes a HUGE visual difference. Offset going from et38 on reps to et29 adds to that aggressive look in a HUGE way too.

    Any problem with rubbing running that offset and width? I like the stretch by the way. Looks really european and makes the wheels more of a feature/presents them better. How far are you lowered from stock s4 height?

    Meh, I like the silver mirrors, not too sure i would go color matching them and all. I had some rubbing but I have the front fenders rolled and the back wheels are at max negative camber so now I just rub on the BIGG dips, that's all.
    Not sure how much lower, never measured stock height to this haha, I'm assuming I'm around 23.5" fender to ground or something. I'll have to check

    Thanks, like I've mentioned before the tail-lights are from eBay. You just have to search around for B7 A4/S4 LED tail-lights and you'll see a bunch of results.

    outstanding. love seeing this car. I enjoy the OEM+ look. How have those brakes held up in the NY winters? I just installed my StaSIS/Alcon BBK and am in NH...alittle worried (i know, summer is approaching) about next winter and the salt damage.

    I clean my car often in the winter, although I don't do it in my driveway I go to a local brushless car wash I sign up for plan with. So the car is salt free. I have not had them through deep snow just the very light stuff we got a little bit over the past winter. I put them on in the summer of 2011 on my A4, then that got totaled 2 weeks after I put the brakes on, so i swapped them on the S4 a month or so later. There was no significant snow so I cant comment too much on salt damage when it comes to brakes.

    The whole car looks stellar like everyone else has said! Well done. Like you mentioned, a tad bit of rear camber and you're there.

    ....about that......i kinda lost it lol, ripped it off coming out of my work driveway when we had a thick piece of frozen ice sticking out too much and since i had no way of taking it off i dragged it all the way home, it wasn't salvageable so i tossed it. Might get one later.

    Car is at the body shop now getting looked at and fixed, i was rear ended on Friday =/

    I was injured when my A4 got totaled and this possibly made it much worse, car should be ready by next week Friday if all goes well, as for me. I have no idea when i will be better, damage is permanent =/ I can just hope I feel better

    Cool man. Thanks for the reply. Going to have to just keep up on washing salt off next winter on coil overs and brakes to keep it fresh. Sometimes thom the washes have those damn guide rails and with a lowered car....ugh

    You're welcome. I mean there might be some rust preventive product or something. I honestly don't know and have no proof if washing often will help but in my mind it does so I do it. Spring like weather is finally showing itself around here so hopefully when it's warm enough I'll be able to get some degreaser and just general cleaner and clean up the suspension components and give it a protective spray of some sort.

    It's CF. I don't have the car with me now to take some shots but here are some previous ones I took and found:

    Not sure if that helps, I'll try to snap some when I get the car back but that won't be until the end of the week.

    Yea I thought it was OEM. I feel the same way about spending that much just for a simple spoiler. Good luck with it.

    My car needs a damn good detail but I also need warmer weather

    You'll be sold as long as you actually push the pedal to get the feel of the car. I'm not talking about a test drive that barely uses 20hp
