I painted the spokes of my rims black. Yeah yeah spraypaint sucks but I was pretty careful. Sanded then 2-3 coats of primer, 4-5 cloats black paint, and 1 coat clear coat.

I painted the RS4 grill trim black later and added mesh in the gaping holes of my A! bumper. I figured I'm not getting a FMIC anytime soon =[.

Thanks. I'm running Intrax ARS coilovers, 24.5" front 25" rear ground to fender. Haha it's faster for me to post pics in html so I posted on AW first. Sorry!

I'm thinking it won't chip as easily with that many coats. I used 600 grit sandpaper.

Actually the bumper is super chipped. I haven't had the time to get it resprayed yet. I'm actually waiting to get sideskirts so I can get everything painted at the same time =].

Definitely use more flex agent on the respray of the bumper. Helps minimize the damage cause by debris.

I had a shop do my lowers hehe. Here's a close up pic from the day I painted them. It was dark already so the pic is kind of bad.

Actually I wish my bumper was dirty...it's really just super duper chipped [:(] Anyways I bought the RS4 grill used and the previous owner glued the S4 emblem on there. I couldn't remove it and I didn't want to seem like a poser so I covered up the chrome S4 with electrical tape temporarily. Looks okay so far!

Damn, looks so much better. Black out your headlights! Maybe do a A4RobM style tailights w/ half blk/half red.
