So I tried selling my rims for a while to get some black ones with a silver lip. The rims where all silver. I decided to get them powder coated. Paid $50 a wheel for powered coating and sandblasting. Great deal I think. I just got them installed today. Needless to say, I think they look HOT! I also have suede door cards, and piano black trim as you can see in the last pic. Enjoy.

Looks good dude, Glad you went with the black trim looks good. Any pictures of the car on some blacktop? All of the fender gaps look different in those pictures and im wondering if it was just because of where it was sitting.

Thanks everyone for your comments

The suede I did myself with another mnaudi member, I did the 4 door cards and arm rest cover.

The piano wood trim was also diy with some help from a mnaudi member.

Yup the fog lights are HID. Gotta love them.

The wheels are Flik artics, custom powder coated. They were originally all silver, like Lud2EuroA4's.

Rob, I wanted the sides real bad!

The headlights are depo headlights, honestly altough people complain about them, the light output is pretty good.

As far as more pics of the interior, well my dvd player (7in Pioneer) is still not done, once thats done, Ill throw up some pics!

Believe it or not, its a 1996!

looks great man. i can see you upgraded the tailights and put a full size passenger mirror on. i love the euro deck lid on the 96 too. are those OEM mirros caps or a knock off?

lilman05
04-11-2007, 09:49 AM
The mirrors are not oem, but good quality. The headlights came like that, can anyone photoshop my car and make it with ecodes? Please, I really want to see how it would look. I might end up doing that.

lude2euroa4
04-11-2007, 09:52 AM
i would suggest ecodes or CC'd one peices also...

How did you do the doorcards? Any writeup??

lilman05
04-11-2007, 11:49 AM
Hey DRA4, I honestly was inspired by your car. I love it! I remember your post about putting on the Asa Ar-1 back when you removed the s4 rims I believe. Thanks

Hey DRA4, I honestly was inspired by your car. I love it! I remember your post about putting on the Asa Ar-1 back when you removed the s4 rims I believe. Thanks

Thanks bro, i really like the euro trunk on your car and xenon fogs. Good job and try to make it to Waterfest.

lilman05
04-11-2007, 01:13 PM
Haha, the door cards was easy, but a pain in the a$$. If someone wants, I can email them exactly the easiest ways to do it.

The headlights are 2 peice, ya ya I know, but this was of my first mods, and I didnt really know which ones to go with. Its all good, I think they look ok. I got them online for $150 shipped. They are depo, and have pretty decent light output.

Dam $500 for the powder coating. I got mine done at a perfectional shop for $200 for all 4 rims. Sandblasting and powder coating. PLus they polished the lip for free.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I honestly really appreciate them :)

i really like the euro trunk on your car

its a 96, they all came with that trunk. there is a TINY diffrence between that trunk and a true euro trunk.

since its a 96 youll also notice no lower door moldings

I like the mirrors. I see your car is a 96, so is that passenger mirror a stubbed size mirror??

04-11-2007, 09:45 PM
Thanks guys, I lowered it with some H&R coilovers. The ride is kinda bumpy but its my first time lowering a car so im not used to it. I love the driving with the new suspension thought. Probably the best mod to do I think.

Ok so the stubby mirror came with my car when I got it. It bugged me soooo much! Every girl that sat in my car disregarded the awesome design of the audi interior, and instead always pointed out "um, why is that mirror smaller then the other one!?" Dam it bugged me enough until I got someone to trade with me. Then I got the covers. I dont think you can get the covers for the stuby mirror...

I guess since I have a 2.8, I cant really do much hp mods, (besides exhaust) so I decided to make the car look and handle better instead. Thanks again everyone for your comments!

holy shit fuck bitch. one of the sickest rides. [up]

tell us how you really feel.



didnt the 1st generation A8s have the same mirrors as the pre 99.5s? i know the first couple of years the A8 was out it had a stubby too because thats what my mom had on her A8. but did they change it to full size later on? and im pretty sure the A8 mirrors are the same and will fit on the B5 A4's. im just trying to broaden my search for a full size passenger mirror without having to buy a new one.
