    Default Made a bold decision

    Once you may remember i was asking for advice about me getting an A6, and most did agree and others gave wise words regarding debt etc.

    So although i was eligable for a loan large enough to ge tthe A6, i have decided i would rather live a more comfortable student life.

    HOWEVER...

    I would like to get the Vec even better. Looking at 19'' (not snowlfakes) and the VXR boot lip

    Can anyone point me in the direction of the boot lip, and suggestions for nice Wheels?

    Thanks greatly

    Well i do like the 18'' VXR wheels. Theres a replica set for £550 which seems ok. I will take a £2k loan out, so id be looking at an Sri front bumber for about £400 sprayed? or is that not enough. The boot lid, a front splitter and the rear Sri bumper grill, although my exhaust points down so would have to consider a new exhaust (expensive or not?)

    The price for the replicas seems about right. You've just gotta keep your eyes out for cheap bits on ebay or whatever. Can probably get an SRI front bumper for £80ish maybe, same with rear. It's the painting that'll cost the most but if you do 'em all at once the price will go down as they don't have to keep mixing the paints. My exhaust also pointed down, I sawn it off though and stuck a tailpipe on, but that was a cheap option, and it has no sound to it!

    I think i can get hold of a boot lip easily enough, its just getting an Sri front bumper in silver or primed for painting. Ebay has nothing and i wouldn't know where to look

    Just keep checking it daily, i've seen loads on there in the past, price is forever varying, just keep your eye out for a cheap one!
