Just thought I'd introduce myself since I'm new to this site and new to Audi's. I just picked up this B6 A4 avant a few weeks ago after searching for a few months (6 speed, quattro, 1.8t), this is my first Audi but I've had a couple VW's before this so I'm not totally clueless. I've been lurking here for a while but haven't introduced myself just yet, I just had my Koni coilovers installed this weekend and gave it a quick wash before I snapped a few shots so I figured now was the perfect time.
04 A4 avant with 50k, it had 2 owners before me and was leased/financed by them, I picked it up at a local dealer when the last owner traded it in. As far as I can tell it seems like a base model. Moro Blue Metallic with black leather interior. The paint isn't bad but definitely needs some TLC (a handful of scuffs, esp on the rear bumper, and a ton of swirl marks... I'll be taking care of that in the next few weeks). So far I have installed smoked markers, Hoen Endurance fog light bulbs, yellow lamin-x, yellow high beam bulbs, LED license plate bulbs, Koni coilovers, shaved rear model badges, and swapped the shift boot for an alcantera one from redline goods. I'll be blacking out the grill surround up front (keeping the silver rings though, they're too classy to black out), will hopefully be doing the clear corner mod, will be getting a USP rear spoiler, am looking for a USP front bumper and S4 door blades, and would love to find some sort of new rear bumper or at least an oem replacement to get rid of the scuffed up one, other than that I may be tinting the windows (not b/c I like tint but b/c I have a new baby and the protection from the sun is worth losing the clean untinted windows). As far as performance mods go, I'm mostly interested in mpg since I commute with this car so I'll be adding an intake and maybe a chip down the road (since this engine is so weak compared to the 2.0T in the GTI). My wheel will be going on this week if all goes right, they're BBS CH's that I painted gold, I had them on my mkV GTI and am waiting on spacers to get them to sit right on the avant, also I'm looking into a different wheel set up this year but am completely undecided on what I want, leaning heavily towards an 18x8.5 non staggered set of Super RS's but only time will tell if I go through with it or not. I think that about wraps it up so here are a few shots from yesterday...
p.s. these Koni's are low... I have them all the way up in the rear and they still tuck, will be interesting trying to get my other wheels flush.
