      I think if you keep it black it's going to look a lot like Jess' S4

      I disagree buddy...
      Less dish, different wheel faces, not as widebody, different bumpers, not as smoothed.... That is like saying that your IY looks alot like Mike Londons cuz its got stretch n poke
      I dont think Ari is going as crazy. More of a factory look than Jesster.

      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

      i could back this up ....i was with him at the last visit to the shop theres definite difference in person

      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. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Now shave those lowers.

      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...
