      funny pics ("clunker"). car is looking sweet. a bit too much stretch and poke for my taste, but super nice nonetheless. BBS RS FTW!

      hands down winner of the show i bet if the paint was complete.

      I saw the car in person at Treffen and talked to you a bit. Wheels have proper fit and the fender work is very nice. Now shave those lowers.

      haha yes we talked but i had no idea you had a wooden trunk... just saw one of your posts now.. did you piece it together inside of the car or somehow fit it through the door or trunk? mine doesnt fit hahaha and i was thinking about making some secret trap door (making it 2 pieces) to fit...

      did you also shave the bottom of the door? bc when me and aron were at the show there was a s4 with the whole door shaved and we didnt really know what to make of it .....if i liked it or not maybe some snaps of your car will change my mind too me it seems too much of gap between door and sideskirts

      yeah im pretty sure i am going to shave my lowers... the smoother the better and for the bottom i just need to make sure the side skirt is tight on there and in the beginning i was not liking the innner piece of the door showing.... but black on black will not be visible... ive seen it on a silver and nogaro colored s4 and its barely there...

      nice for an a4 with a built 2.0 and a hta 3076 on it

      i removed the door sills when i had an old body kit installed. i plan on getting some facelift sills installed. so you mat see some black. i need new sills mine are all scratched up.

      it looks awesome from that angle. and i know these wheels look sweet on STIs.

      oh and to the op, your car is looking good, after paint and being lowered down onto those wheels, itll be too hot to stop
