    Anymore profile pics to show box placement? I picked up some used Whispbars I'm going to paint black before putting up my Inno box. I want his current HREs off the guy you bought those from too.

    No box pix but I wrapped my Whispbars with Shadowline vinyl instead of painting. I only mount a bike rack on mine but it's held up great. This was in my Jetta Sportwagen.

    There are folks in this ad who were part of Camp allroad last summer. Or, at least their vehicles were in there :)

    Received the the text today the car will be at Baltimore Port on the 27th. As for my order they pretty much denied the fun stuff like Manual Trans & Nogaro Inserts, as for the body they never gave me an answer if they are doing full paint or not but based off my conversation through the months I am getting the impression it's not full paint.
    Go sedan yourself!

    Ah, Damn. I figured the trans and seats wouldn't fly. When I looked into Exclusive I found interior stuff wasn't an option to have custom order bits.

    Look forward to seeing how it looks!

    I'm sure your stoked no matter what!

    Edit:

    It may been the same boat as mine! Mine is supposed to arrive in Houston on May 4th. Production date was 04/04/17

    Allroads look better when the owner paints the fenders to match the body, than when they come from the factory painted...for some reason the factory painted fenders are a little less shiny than the rest of the car and don't match...

    B8 I've seen this it isn't the same for the B9? The ones I've seen full paint seem good.

    Well now I'm going to be second guessing myself. Ugh. Going to need to take another look at a dealership (they're not easy to find around NYC though). Should have taken more pix when I had the chance a few months ago.

    I took a pic of this M Gray Full Paint. Looks ok to me. Dunno.

    It's not an issue, it's by design. The paint-matched fenders on the B8.5 are satin finish.

    That is correct.

    The B9 has full paint that is the same texture and finish as the rest of the car. Gloss.

    It is a change from the B8.5 Allroad.

    The standard cladding has a slight metallic luster to it in the B9, which I believe was not the case in the B8.

    Wow Audi f'd up... please someone tell me that it wouldn't look better without the rocker panels all together...
    Maybe this is one of many things that differentiate the allroad from the euro avant...

    Allroad's have always had brushed aluminum rocker panels (B8.5) or brushed aluminum lower door trims (C5).

    So... yes, it is something that differentiate the allroad from normal avants, like the flares.

    Just like the RS cars have flared fenders and flared rocker panels.
