      Yeah im gonna ask him if he has any pictures of it.. im sure he does, then ill post em..
      Well i went into the shop today since it was the first day of body work on my car... he worked 2-7 and all the fenders were pulled, tomorrow i believe he will start cosmetics, smoothing and shaving.. Or maybe the doors not quite sure, but i will stop in to take some pictures of the progress..
      He even taped off my lips so that no imperfections could occur from the constant transition of removing the wheels... what a nice guy.






      Then comparison with the stock wheel



      Stock wheels deep in there lol


      and sorry to Whore around, but it was my birthday yesterday(monday) and my Porsche calipers came in... i was quite excited and liked the size of them

      yes I'm gonna keep them red .. I dunno i've always thought that with my car being black, red is the best contrast.. It matches all the s4 logos on the car and the taillights... Hahaha and since the RS' have such small spokes that will be the only way of actually seeing the caliper..

      the guy rolled the fenders out completely, but still left a very small tab rolled inside because that helps with the strength of the fender and it wont be a sharp edge to cut my tires.. The bottom edge was then sealed with a sealant... i dunnno it barely looks different in the picture but in really life the thing is pulled out... the stock wheel is sunk in there haha
