    Anybody know or have any experience of them?

    I was looking at the audi a4's and bmw e92 coupes. Lovely aftermarket work and the prices for the cars aren't actually too bad.

    Shame they're 200 miles from me, but just wondering if anybody knows much about them.

    Friend bought an E46 M3-esque Coupe from there.

    Nice cars but quite overpriced seeing as they basically just throw a set of copied wheels on them!

    /edit - When i say "M3-esque" i mean copied front bumper and wheels.

    was he happy with everything? service etc?

    The e92 coupe is about the same as it would cost to get an SE model direct from a bmw dealer, the body kit and wheels suit really nicely....mmm.

    Some of the stuff looks nice but I've never seen one up close so have no idea how the quality of the bodywork is compared to the BMW alternatives.

    They are also hugely expensive for what it is a standard car with some awful wheels and a nice bodykit.

    They are in my town so I check out their stock every few months. It's all about the exterior though, as most of the Audi/BMW/VW stock are just the small turbo diesels with larger wheels and the body kit. The body kits to me seem a fit flimsey (thin plastic), and they very rarely do anything to the inside so cloth interiors etc. Having said that they will customise to practically anything you want. On the pricey side though.

    When you say they "did it for me", do you mean you took your car to them and stick bits on, or you bought the car as above from them?

    If so (either or), how much did it cost, if you don't mind me asking? :)

    Hi guys I took my car to them i'll have to dig out the recipt but it was competetive with the other bodyshops. There Audi reps which i've since sold and now run r32 reps in the winter and merc s600 rims in the summer. I'm going back for some more body work this year as I've put 50k motorway miles on it since buying it and its needs freshening up.

    Probably because they are cheaper than the real deal, and come with Tyres included, such as Wanli and Ling Long ;)

    I always thought that Autovogue was pretty high end for some reason, obviously not.

    The company themselves do come across as quite "prestige", but i dare say most customers are after the "look" and are not concerned about tyres brands.
