I was able to get the car washed so that I could take a few pics right before it rained again. I like the black wheels a lot better with the CF parts than the anthracite wheels (which are still for sale) Hope you enjoy.

Yes the car was in an accident before I purchased it and at the time the car was being repaired these were the only fenders that were available. I am going to get the carbon fiber fenders from Fiber Images which have the newer sidemarker.

You'll just have to trust me on the cf doors and the paint scheme, but it will be very nice IMO. And yes I do have the cf door pillars.

I always get motivated when I see other people changing their cars to make them look better. After seeing A4Robs car I think I need to change up the rear of my car also, so here is the question. Which rear bumper would look best with what I am running? Keep in mind that I will be switching to an RS4 front bumper and I will be keeping my side skirts as I do not see a lot of people with them, so the rear bumper has to work with these pieces. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks, and here are a few different angle shots so you can give me some suggestions. Make sure to post pics of your suggestions so I can see what they look like.

I'm loving the Euro S4 rear bumper... If I change mine, that'll definately be it. I also want my Euro plates, I'll rock my rear U.S. Plate like the dealers do, with magnets, and take it off everytime I parked so it won't get stolen, lol.

^^^ if your in NY, which you prob wont be with your car, but if you are, and you leave you car parked somewhere, they can actually ticket your car for incorrect plates or no front plate and leave it on your windshield like a parking ticket . . . . People in NY without front plates get screwed all the time

I wonder if anyone has ever got one of those tickets at an outdoor car show, lol. I doubt if I'd have a problem here in MT, they'd probably think the car was from overseas and be completely oblivious to it.

I have never run a front license plate and have never been pulled over or even hassled. I guess it depends on where you live, but it doesn't seem to be a priority here in the Bay Area where I live.

I got these off of ebay and have had them on the car for almost a year with no problems.

If you go back a few posts, I posted some before and after pics of the wheels but yes I do like the black with cf over the anthracite with cf. The black brings out the black in the cf better than the anthracite can match the cf, if that is what you were looking to do.

Thanks, but the car will be changing a lot real soon. I'm still trying to find a rear bumper that will go well with the RS4 front bumper and my current side skirts. I know a lot of people like the Euro S4 rear, but I don't think it will go well with my planned mods ................. so still I search.

What ever happened with your parts?

Definately tint the rear lights and get the roof done! ... and since I will be selling my Avant I guess I can pass on calling you a copy cat if you get the Rennen tuning rear! LOL

check out: www.tmtuning.com for the euro spec rear bumper.

cf roof will just finish off the exterior in my eyes. As far as the tails... i would leave them, i like that "pop" of red in the back end against the darker tones of the cf and body color.

I thought that's what you had but I was not a %100 sure. I like the rear end but I think it needs some lines near the bottom like the front has to compliment the rest of the kit. I actually like the whole kit and think this may be the face lift that I need. I'm still going to look into other kits and the RS4 front is still one of my top choices, but this is going to have to be considered a lot. Thanks for the heads up to everyone who helped with giving me some ideas.

I just want something that flows well together and I'm not really liking the Kerscher rear so I'll have to check all my options.

I'll find something soon, and then the change will begin.
