You should add the rs5 style grill to your list too - best £200 I have spent so far
Welcome both....darkus, your drive is a disgrace and not worthy of an A5.
And eamonn......you just about get away with it but if you are getting into detailing it should extend to the imprinted concrete....a new topcoat of resin easily applied with a soft broom on a warm day will bring it up like new.... just don't forget the anti slip additive.
It is only one of the free services I offer......
Hope everything goes well with the move, with a bit of luck your new neighbour will share your interest in detailing.....
Hmm, she does know you use the sponge on the car and not your face right? Going to be fun having neighbours and a titchy driveway again. Where I am currently it's a lone farm with a huge yard for me to play in. Moving to a town house with a little concrete square out front barely long enough to get the car in. 😟
Is there much I can do to save my paintwork in its current state? I'm afraid the bonnet and front bumper has more chips than your local casino.
Polishing will IMO only get rid of swirls and light scratches. To stay with the casino phrasing... I'm sure you know the house always wins so I'm afraid the chips will stay unless you respray...
Oh whoops, should I be using a noodly hand thingy instead of my 99p sponge?
I pinched a pic off Google of some 'charcoal' grey on black, what do you guys think? I quite like it, never liked things like hyper silver myself. What do you guys think?
Nice build, definitely going to steal it that gear stick for my todo list. Still not keen on hyper silver on black strangely, just my taste. Don't mind it on the bright blue (sepang?). Starting to wonder if I should have gone for white body..
Bit more googling, found a tasty colour palette thingy of a very similar rim! I'm liking the one below top left the most currently.
Really love that grill too, is it standard on the newer S5s? I'm guessing black edition, but I'm no expert.
Yea its part of the Black Edition. As you can see from my other thread, I swapped the grey grill of me A5 with the RS5 style, and had plans to do it with the S5, but I agree, the gloss black standard grill is nice so never bothered.
Not sure they had a black edition on the pre-FL A5...? It's fairly easy to get the front bumper off, so could look at spraying it black yourself?
Mines already gloss black, but definitely not black edition. Similar grill but yours looks more aggressive, fewer and thicker slats I think.
