Side skirt and spoiler thoughts...
 
Been looking for a good side skirt and rear spoiler combo for my B8 A4. Don't really want to go for a full on body kit for 2 reasons.. 1.) think the factory look is pretty good as is 2.) expensive. Any thoughts on what side skirt would integrate well and look good with the factory non-s front and rear?. Really like the Caractere side, but am afraid it might look out of place without the rest of the kit. Been thinking S-line side skirt with ABT 3-piece rear spoiler. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Sideskirts
 
I am thinking about using the audi accessory side skirts part number 8K0071685. Has anybody installed these if so any pictures?

IMHO, only the S-line stone guards look good w/out matching fronts and rears. I remember seeing pics of the Audi accessory side skirts w/out the fronts and rears to match, and it just looked awkward because the side skirted section looked much lower than the rest of the car. This tends to be the case w/ side skirts from kits that aren't so subtle.

You don't need an S-line front fascia and S-line rear bumper/valance to make the S-line stone guards look like they belong IMHO; they look great on non S-lines. Here's mine:

I have an B8 S-Line but I have the other OEM side skirts installed, looks a little bit better in my opinion. Here are some pics.

I did the sideblade, similar to ItsDubc; purchased from ECS. Very happy with them over non s-line.

Vaporize: nice ride! Looks great and I'm sure the stasis mods are quite enjoyable.

That is a good side skirt, unlike the Audi S-line blade, stone guard or whatever crap it's called. If a side skirt looks like an add-on, that's a Toyota/Mazda look in my book.

The S-line side skirt and the gray plastic around the instrument cluster are the only things I think suck in the A4 design.

I was thinking of doing the sideblades from ecs as well... how much was it to paint them?

These don't follow the lines of the front and rear bumper.
I prefer the OEM sline gaurds.
