B6/B7 S4 owners - what have you done with your door blades??

Gents

Looking to do something with the black door blades. From what I can gather, my options are:

1. Paint them.
2. Wrap them.
3. Plasti-dip them.
3. Replace them with carbon fibre ones

Are there any other options and if possible, could you please post pictures of what you've done for some inspiration?

Any help, advice and company recommendations would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

They defo are one of my bugbears.

I picked up the wheels for the Noggy S4 at the weekend and the guy had a B6 Goodwood Green S4 with colour coded door blades and it looked fantastic tbh.

I posted on Audizine and the guys were saying that their S4's came with the door blades colour coordinated!! Someone penny pinching on the UK/Euro S4's.

Think I'm either going to get them painted or wrapped. Edging towards a carbon fibre wrap. Would also get the unpainted section of the rear bumper done as well. Mine is the dark blue colour and think the carbon fibre wrap would go well against it.

Any pics of carbon wrapped ones?
James777

Not looked for any yet. I could be the first if I go down that route. I did find some real carbon fibre door blades though:

Nice but expensive!!

Work good on black car, not sure without pics if they would suit others.

I posted the same question on Audizine and someone posted up a picture of their B7 S4 with carbon wrapped door blades:

Hi James,

I painted mine, it was easy enough and noticed that there was a bit of rust behind one of them, so good chance to clean it up and do some repair if needed. All the crap sits behind them.

If you go the paint route get some made up at a local paint place as they will sort out decent paint and colour match. Then use a 2k laquer for the best results.

Hi Al

Thanks for the information. Going to get prices for getting them painted and wrapped. Think I'm more inclined to get them painted.
