I dont like the sides at all, to each his own tho.

Sides are ok. V1/2s would have looked better but the line flow just gets blown outa wack when it reaches the rear ... needs something deeper if its to look good in the rear other then that the car looks good

don't like the side skirts, and just so you know that isn't a borla muffler that comes with the exhaust or he just got some really ugly tips put on.

I really like this pictures. Not a fan of the skirts but to each his own.

I just wish those wheels were an option for the US spec A4s.

It looks awesome from the front [up] . I agree I'm not a huge fan of the skirts but props for doing it all yourself. I wish I knew how to paint!

If he wanted something with the top painted a different color he should have bought a mini cooper, but that's my opinion.

Looks nice. I had to get rid of my DTM tips, too much noise to the cabin. And left crap up on my rear deck lid too.

if he had one pieces or ecodes the car will be a little more put together overall the car dsnt look bad... except for the oversized swing wheels... [:p]

Tell your friend he has a nice car. Atleast he doesn't have allroad suspension on 19"s like me...

I like the black top-- but I think I would have made the pillars black too-- and with black tint

I will have to say overall it don't work the rear just looks lost with those sides which I have to say don't work at all.

The roof ok but as stated it would look better with the pillars done.

The front looks good and will look even better with ecodes.

Just a quick play with the roof.

yep, those are boleros! They were available for the European S4 (urS4 -> C4 -chassis). I know somebody who might be willing to part with a set...PM me if you are interested.
World-Impex once sold those for $800 a set...until they ran out of stock. Audi can sell them to you for $400+ each, though. [eek]

i like the roof idea alot but i think it would look better if you just painted the top and left the sides silver....just my opinion

I think that the roof looks really nice, the skirts are a little rice imo. If I had a silver car, I would for sure do the black top too.

i like the rear valence painted, and the front bumper is nice too, not a fan of anything else. Car looks odd over all i think. But like evil said, atleast he's modding his car.
