    Not an easy swap, fit a B8.5 wheel instead.

    S4 b8 grill

    Ebay has plenty of aftermarket ones to choose from. Fitment took me a few hours in total but it wasn't difficult if you follow a YouTube guide. The most fiddly bit for me was getting my park sensors to fit properly in the mounts they supplied. Don't forget to spray the crash bar black too.

    Audi S4 B8 Avant Brilliant Red

    The base pn is 8k2857185 but then the end letters vary depending on MMI size, panel colour and year it was made. The only differences are silver or black which you can see, and Low or High MMI which is stated on a white sticker fitted to each panel. Low being a 6.5inch MMI and high being a 7inch...

    Audi S4 B8 Avant Brilliant Red

    I heard TPS sell them new for around £300 or there's ebay. Black ones are pretty rare and usually pricey otherwise you can always spray a silver one black yourself.

    Audi S4 B8 Avant Brilliant Red

    Next I decided to update the awful steering wheel and shifter. Didn't have the balls to mod the selector to a front facing one yet but maybe in the future. The RS4 wheels looks and feels amazing and the perforated leather gear selector match up quite nicely. Other interior mods I'll be doing...

    2013 audi A6 alloy dilemma

    Stick to silver or grey, anything else looks crap IMO. Or just man up and swap over to some 20" rotors

    Black edition TDI vs TFSI, B8 vs B8.5 recommendations?

    Yeah the price concerns me slightly as it's around 3k difference. However I'm a sucker for the flat bottom steering wheel plus I prefer the facelift. The way I look at it is if it's 3years younger then it's worth the 3k. Is there any other benefits on the B8.5? From what I've read the TFSI had...

    Black edition TDI vs TFSI, B8 vs B8.5 recommendations?

    Currently looking into upgrading my b6 190 Avant for a newer model. Started looking for a b7 special edition but now I'm thinking just go all out and get a b8 as I plan to keep the car a long time. Been looking at the black edition and id like the petrol but I can't seem to find many. So now...
