Yep the tips are a straight swap... about £60 for the pair I think.
You need to get a firm grip of the old ones and wiggle them off. Took me a while to do mine.
Sit on the floor behind the car and tug. The new ones slot on and there is v shape slot that the lug slides in to
Did you pull yours off? Nice to know that out is easy and only 60 quid. I might get a dark set for the winter when it comes back!

If I hadn't have seen mine on my car I would of jumped at the chance to swap. But as it is it looks good.
Thanks for the offer anyway!
You going to order a set?

No worries bud,
If I can't find anyone that wants to swap I'm going to buy some 'BMS' ones that are larger and slash cut at around the £80 mark.

Literally exactly the spec I would go for!

I would love to pit up against one of these, see if I made the right or wrong choice going with the S5...!

Who am I kidding...I wouldn't complain if I ended up with either :P

I have a friend with an 08 S5 Coupe and we are waiting till mine is run in for a little straight line accelaration comparison. Do you have the newer V6 turbo version?
Not to be awkward, but the BMW equivalent of the S5 would be a 5 series.

4 series - S4.

Nice car though, I do like the new 4 series and great engine choice also

Yea as Big Mac points out, the 4 series is the new BMW Coupe. The 5 series is a big Saloon, which rivals the A6.

3 series > A4
4 series > A5
5 series > A6

3 series - a4
340i - s4
m3 - rs4

4 series - a5

Dr.Eskimo's S5 is the the 2 door coupe version so yes a direct comparison to the 2 door coupe 4 series BMW

The S5 Sportback (the 5 door coupe) is a direct comparison to the GT 4 series BMW
