I have just purchased a set of these;



To be fitted Monday morning, to eliminate the unsightly arch gap and compliment the recently replaced complete control arm kit.

The price will not change.

Thanks

Alex

As my build thread, I opted for coilover suspension and had to replace the rear turret/brackets as they were badly corroded.

I bought new turrets from Audi and coilovers - the car turned out looking like this...







Check;

For the complete write up in case its not been spotted.

Not including the wheels its cost me a further 600 in the last week - Im happy to only see half of that back.

On the standard wheels the car is still for sale at 4500! Ill even include the new spacers so that the original wheel do not disappear into the arch

As of today the car looks like this...





I have just completed a 500 mile trip to the south for holiday, took the S4 as we kinda know it will be the last holiday with the old girl.

Aside from the lack of space, the care performed fantastically.

Its back on standard wheels with 15mm spacers on the rear and 10mm spacers on the front - coilovers have been wound right back up!

Ill listen to offers as its the time to sell now. Shes bled me dry but I still love the old girl

Ok a bit of a "warts" post, the only body defects are pictured below and I have been quoted 200 to have these done.

Im taking this price into consideration and going to leave these for the new owner.









Hit me with some offers guys as failing this forum ill have to turn to eBay to sell the car - I would really like to see it end up with an SRS resident.

Thanks all!

Brought this out of hibernation today to take the family out. The new addition to the family's first time in the car too and she loved it i think 😀

One major problem however, 1x baby seat, 1x toddler seat and the Mrs do not fit comfortably it turns out!

So now me and my family have totally outgrown the car, it is as practical as an Elise as im rarely out without them. 🙄

I've struggled to push the sale as deep down I really don't want to sell, to regret and buy another - but now that's out the window.


this with the wife in the back for the baby? if so this period soon ends, then she can sit in the front. Could you live with the wife in the back with the baby and the toddler up front? (airbag off) unless you going big 4x4 or 7 seater you'll struggle to get much more room out of a 'conventional' wagon? once your talking 3rd child your struggling!

anyway good luck with the sale and with the family!

Hi all. A quick drop 4000.

I hasn't left the garage in over a month so its not getting any use at all now - probably worth bricking up the doors and going back to it in twenty years

Thanks!

Random bump. Ive had enquiries about the car, youth wanting to "test" the car and one person turn up to say "You want 4k for a T reg car?", to which I asked, "Why are you here?".

Someone else "Will it beat my mates Renault Mega...." - "Let me stop you there, Goodbye".

"How fast you had out of it"

I know its an S4 and they are fast cars but this is not the crowd I want to deal with, ill leave it on here only from now on until it sells. Again, not in a rush, i'm using it from time to time and find myself enjoying it more as, dare I say, a weekend car.

I hate selling cars with a passion, I really do.
