Here is an Audi RS4 estate I saw in Monaco.

Wow, you have done an amazing job. And even the word amazing is an understatement! Very sexy car and very good work, I've read some replies stating it looks like it came straight from the factory. It does!!!
Only downside for me; the rims are a tad too big.
Still overall I'd want one!!! Enjoy your unique ride!

I was thinking the same thing. Good job! 63 NP.

I think it would've looked really good with 220M style wheels.

Fantastic job, but the Christmas tree air freshener is usually cause for concern on this side of the pond

[quote=63NP;8974480]

Converted from a 2007 E91 318i m-sport auto transmission.

- Donor car is an E90 M3 (and the E91 318is an mentioned)
- Fenders were custom made by combining M3 E90 wheel arch with E91 quarter panel
- Rear bumper is the M3 E90 spliced with the E91 M Sport

Just having brackets and bells made for the 6 pot BBK's for the front(yellow) and touch up paint and she's finished.!!
thx 4 lookin..



literally art. everything just works so well.
