Ok thanks guys, I'll have a look! Any specific measurements I should be looking for or do they need to be A4 B8 specific?

Edit: Would these be the right ones for my car?

E20-15-011-01-22 , Mine is an avant if that makes a difference too.

Agree with above.

Mine were ebay.de about £130 delivered I think and came really quickly from memory.

Wow thanks guys! I will definitely have to look into this, lowering it would make a massive difference.

Having my rear diffuser resprayed tomorrow then hopefully be fitting the grill on the weekend! Also need to get round to painting the calipers but that's not as fun haha

I voted for alloys. A new set of rims makes a big difference in my opinion, and it's relatively easy to change, like fixing a puncture...just four times!

Looks great mate! Well done!

Get those fog rings blacked out too! Looks awesome on dark coloured cars and is really easy to do!

I'm going to get the honeycomb fog surrounds soon. Finish it off nicely I think.

Looks so different from a standard car. Prefer the no chrome look for sure

Did you just paint them yourself I suppose? Does look good.

I actually don't mind the chrome, chose the chrome logo on the grill as it think it stands out more, look meaner! Just my opinion! Plus don't wanna pay £150 just to have the door trims wrapped!

I painted mine. Left door trims and roof rails silver. Still looks decent and makes the main grille the centre of focus even more so!

Sorry to jump in but can I ask where you found the Honeycomb Fog Surrounds?? I have been searching for ages but all the ones I find are not suitable for the S-Line model.

Thanks in advance

Mine is only SE, not S-Line. There are 2 styles on eBay, one has chrome ring around the fog, the other is open like the grill with no chrome. Not as many listings of the open ones.

Lucky you. Cannot find for the life of me, versions for the S-Line model. Don't understand why.

Anyone found any Honeycomb S-Line Fog Grilles????

They all seem to say, not for S-Line. Don't know why they don't make them

There must be some logical reason why they don't make them for the S-Line version but can't figure it out.

They are only slightly different but that not different. (ignore the he fact the bottom image is an S4, same grilles as the S-Line.)

Ah yeah, never noticed that before. Will stand out on every car I see now!
Must be to with the shape of the S-Line ones. Can't get them to look right maybe with the little bit that goes onto the bumper.

There's none just now for the s line or S4 @TechNick is working on some with his company driving passions, a few people have cut out the inside panels of the grills and fitted mesh behind that way you can still have the raised parts that fit into the recess in the bumper at the sides

I've got the Maxton design splitter in Gloss black an the fitment is good. The Maxton logo is just a stick on badge that peals off Make sure you get S4 specific splitter and not the SLine one as the fitment is better. Not sure how good their carbon finish is though.

So the S4 splitter would fit an S-Line bumper?

I modded my front fog grills on my s sline a4 avant. Dead easy, just carefully cut out the back of the offside grill leaving the horizontal slats. Purchased black mesh from eBay cut and glued using Autoglue (great stuff). Nearside was easier as it has a removable back plate that just clips off. Then repeated with mesh and glue. Not modded the S4 ones yet as they different on the b8. 5.

I like it mac but that's a pic of your rear diffuser :sunglasses:

Quite sure Mac will be posting plenty of pics of the front of his car from AITP9 at the weekend. :yahoo:
