    This is amazing! I had a 2004 6spd avant and it needed everything done and I just didn't have the time sadly. Glad to see you giving this car the love it deserves!

    Ah, good to know. I also don't like how those new seats are curved in around the shoulder area. I feel pushed/hunched forward in them.

    Regarding the Alcantara, I will look up my notes and post more details in the next couple of days. But the name is Light Silver Grey and it is the factory OEM match. Obviously, my seat bottom looks a little lighter, but I'm sure with some use, it will blend in.

    What's so special about the ultra sports? Or what features did they have that people like so much? Honest question, I'm not being a punk! You've already got me at b6 mt6 avant, which are my favorites

    Basically, it's a very nice and desirable cosmetic package on top of the Sport package equipment and it was offered as a swan song to the B6 platform.

    So, Sport package plus:
    - 18" RS4 style alloy wheels
    - quattro GmbH designed lower front bumper, side door flares, trunk lip spoiler or upper hatch spoiler on an Avant
    - euro rear bumper
    - black interior
    - 3-spoke air leather sport steering wheel with S-Line badge for 2005 MY.
    - aluminum trim (fish scale in 2004, brushed for 2004.5 - 2005)

    Unicorn Rescue! - My B6 Avant Ultrasport

    Thanks! How does this compare to the trim on the b6 S4's?

    Looks like different wheels, no silver mirrors, and no recaros - everything else looks quite similar

    Almost.
    S4 has bigger door blades, different bumpers and front grill, plus Recaro seats with power folding memory and auto-dimming mirrors, different instrument cluster with S4 logos and white needles, S4 badge on the steering wheel.
    Oh yeah, and that awesome-sounding monster V8 shoe-horned in its nose.

    I also would add that it's a perforated leather
    steering wheel.

    And, weren't the bi-xenon black housing headlights, which were offered on S4, part of the USP trim?

    The bi-xenon headlights are actually part of a Lighting Package.
    Halogen was standard. If you bought a Lighting Package in 2004, you got single xenons and in 2005 you got bi-xenons.

    You know your stuff!

    Here's another one for you,
    When we're the 3-spoke USP steering wheels w/ S-line badge offered?

    I'm coming to find out that the OG owner of my just said yes to all the options offered. More reasons why I love my car!

    2005 MY got the S-Line badge. 2004 didn't have the badge.

    I'll take B6 USP options for $500, Alex!

    Thank you!!! I will be watching your thread for inspiration and most likely picking your brain as I work through rescuing this.



    This has been my dream car for many years and as soon as I found it I jumped on buying it so fast the seller couldn't say no. Will be picking it up 2000 miles (3200 km) from home and driving it back. Overall it seems to be in great shape and obviously the modbug has already bitten as I have sourced some s4 seats to pick up on the way back home. I haven't even bought the car yet and I'm already buying stuff for it.

    I still didn't get around to finishing everything inside, but made another small step: installed a dashcam and hardwired it as well as a microphone into the factory location. I would like to run the two wires need for auto-dim side mirrors before I reinstall the glovebox, on which I fixed a broken hinge and re-inforced the other.
    Oh yeah, and my inspection sticker expires in September, so let's hope there are no unwanted surprises there.

    VFIZ and puddle lights

    Pegged her at redline. Tops out at 280kph.



    ... OK, maybe not.



    It's just the cool needle sweep feature of my newly-installed VFIZ by Qmatis after I got rid of my column-mounted boost gauge. I haven't played with it yet, but the needle sweep on startup and oil temperature readings are nice! I need to setup some screens and take full advantage of its capabilities.



    Oh, and I also installed rear LED puddle lights with "quattro" logo. Sorry for the crappy pictures.
    I have "S-Line" logo lights coming for the front doors.





    As well, I picked up a spare hood and both front doors since both my front doors are starting to bubble under the door blades and my hood has a few rock chips that are rusting and the replacement hood was cheaper than a respray. Unfortunately, I discovered later that the "new" passenger side door has tiny bubbles starting under the strip, so I'll have to address that before I put them on. Oh well, winter project I guess. Let's hope the shade of silver is not too far off from my car as metallics are always the hardest to match.

    I received the front door puddle lights as well and installed them, so now I have this cheesy setup!







    In other news, I took the car for an alignment because of a slight wobble and found a defective tie rod end. That was swapped, but they couldn't do the alignment because they found both of my front Eibach springs are broken at the last bottom coil. So, I'm hunting for replacements now. This car is always testing my patience.

    Everything is for sale for the right price, so feel free to PM, but I don't know if I could do that or whether the price would even be worthwhile.
    Plus, I would have withdrawal symptoms, especially since there isn't a manual Avant available past the B7 generation. :(
