    Haha...this time I had a legitimate reason for going there (getting a train from the station next door), unlike when you and I went there to shoot pics/vid for the diffuser.

    Since I was going there, I figured I'd take the camera and grab a few pics...

    I decided to give the RS some TLC. The front was suffering from stonechips, a small patch of corrosion on the edge of the bonnet, and a small split in the bumper by one of the vents.

    New headlight lenses (VX tuning replacements), and a full front end respray. In a couple of weeks, I'm getting the front end protected with Xpel film.

    A few pics.

    Nope - not needed. The colour match is perfect and the "old" paint is actually very fresh - had a multi-stage correction a few months ago

    How were the VX Tuning replacement lenses to install? Satisfied with the results?

    I have a pair that I haven't gotten around to getting installed. Having some condensation issues on the passenger headlight, but concerned i might make the issue worse if they're not sealed up properly.

    I didn't install them myself - had someone far more experienced do it for me! Trups, at EM Tuning - Auto lighting specialist here in the U.K. He used new sealant when he installed them.

    He says they're as good as OEM and actually the only way he can tell them apart is the VX tuning ones have different markings. He's fitted them to a number of B7's with no issues.

    Up close they look great, and to keep them looking that way I'll be getting them covered in the same film that'll be protecting the paint.

    Now with Xpel self healing film over the front end. Pleased to report you can't tell it's there! Just as glossy as the rest of the car, which is coated in gtechniq.

    I've been running the same xpell for the past 3 years. Still as new and from 10" away, you can't tell it's there.

    Wow, with all these immaculate looking examples I'm now feeling very guilty about not even washing any of ours for several weeks!

    Don't be! They're only clean until the first good sprint or hard braking.

    Couple of updates

    The RS4 had a wheel refurb in titanium L8AU:







    And it’s now got a younger sibling at home:

    Correct! Thule wingbar edge in black, and a Thule bike carrier. Can see it slightly better in this pic:

    Looks like the ECS/EBAY ones but I hang on for the answer. Love the car, and a beautiful Avant. I personally preferred a full LED conversion within original lenses over the tail lights currently available. I took that route and very happy with result although lots more work and $ but retains the look while looking modern functionality wise.

    The rear lights were sourced from a company called BM Town here in the UK, and arrived in unbranded packaging but look a lot like one of the units manufactured by Dectane
