Does look like an xDrive next to Gtsussex?s car though. Mark you know what?s coming next!

I could have run it into the wall Gordon!

Seeing Guy?s car again is bad for my health, and wallet.

I definitely won?t lower mine on a different suspension setup but the splitter and spacers...

Still prefer the San Marino, even if it?s as common as EB II now.

I think they are equally lovely colours. Really suit them both. Black on blue certainly accentuates the mean and moody lines.

Mine's being detailed tomorrow - single pass rather than FULL correction as it's not a critical as the black cars...

It will be shiny then

Apparently it will take all weekend - they must reckon Audi quality takes some rectifying!

As well as car I am looking forward to some good pics of during and after as I am not big on faffing with things like that myself!

How many miles are you up to and how low is the mpg?

I?ve done about 450 Miles.

One journey I managed 37 mpg, on the way home 23!

Regular driving looks like I?ll get high 20s which is fine.

You car will take a full weekend - mine normally do for a full correct and seal; this time I?m only having a single pass touch up although not picking up until tomorrow.

Thanks, always agreed the 4 door is a nicer balance - coupe looks a bit arse heave to me.

A few of post detailing images - weather today was awful so tough getting decent shots but it looks stunning. Perhaps looks no different in the pictures but it's silky smooth with some lovely beading

Full write up and pictures will no doubt be online soon definitionsdetailing.co.uk

Just saw this old post and thought I'd update with a new (bit crap) picture.

This is the car now, on BMW M Performance Height Adjustable Springs and with carbon front splitters/Black lip with 10mm spacers.

So much for no modding this time around...
