That's a really smart looking car mate. Nice choice in touches, especially the wheels and carbon [whistle]. Did you wrap the mirrors and spoiler? Really fancy doing this but heard it's a proper mission.


And there was me thinking I was the first to go for a bonkers colour on RS4's!


Awesome stuff dude [Y]

Nah, Just exhaust and filter.


Remap gets 10bhp


You can get a high lift camshaft for about 12bhp.


Maybe 140 bhp if you are lucky.


Not worth bothering lol

Covered it in 3m vinyl, heated it up a little, then used a graphics scalpel to cut the gaps out.

Not too hard.
