Oh trust me, I grew up with the highest respect for Volkswagens, I grew up driving in them, I am not about to do that to an Audi, I am getting ready to post a thread about my future plans for the car.

Welcome man! Your first projects should be clear corner mod and debage. My opinion, but you dont have to listen to me.

Actually I will just do it here instead of cluttering up the forum with useless threads.

Color matched lowers
Cup or chrome mirrors
Vogtland Coilovers
18x8.5 BBS CHs (but until then, if I even get wheels, I will try to find relatively cheap 17x8 OZ Superleggeras or 17x8 ASA AR1s)
M3 Trunk Spoiler
Clear Corner mod, looking to do that soon
Shave the A4 and 2.8 Quattro badges
Not a big deal but the quattro grille badge has been taken off
Slightly tinted windows
I may be putting on a roof rack soon
Black roof
And hopefully plaid headliner and a custom engine cover for kicks.

Now keep in mind that I am only 17, so this will all take quite some time.

looks good. Hopefully you like the 2.8

I do, it is fast enough for me, even if it isn't the fastest engine in the world. And if I want a exciting amount of torque, well, look at the green car next to mine. [:D]

Thank you very much!

Welcome, and nice ride. i was about to say the you should`ve gone with a 1.8T better, but you said you like the V6 and is fast enough for you, its fine with me. and if you wanna go fast there is always the rado, thats true. those things can hawl ass.

Yeah the rado is pretty quick, and come spring I will be able to drive around in something that can pull small wheelies, so that should be pretty fun.

If you are wondering what it is, well, it is a surprise.

hey i'm looking at a 2.8 right now(b5 A4s in general) how you liking it?

Love four rings

I love it, not an incredible amount of power or speed but enough to make it fun. But I also have the largest engine in my little crew, so that could be part of it. My dad has a 1.8TM in his Passat, yeah they are different cars, but still, I like the feel of my car much more.

10-25-2007, 09:47 AM

And is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of people are buying 2.8's recently?

Welcome, Sell It And Buy A 1.8t.
Also Dont Ask If They Make Turo Kits For The 2.8. They Don't

They don't make turbo kits for the 2.8, but PES makes a really sweet Supercharger kit for them. (http://www.superchargersonline.com/product_detail.asp?PartNumber=PES-2830VSC) It's 5 grand new but you could probly find a used one for 2.5k+ Other than that there isn't much for power except for the standard exhaust, intake, chip, etc. (but that won't do much for a non-turbo)

Check out this thread for B5 A4 info: http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113728
And this has some useful info on 2.8s: http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=110257

anyways, welcome! [drive]

Did I not say I was happy with my 2.8? I don't need to drive that fast, not saying I don't, but I live in a small town, there are cops everywhere and it takes like two seconds to get everywhere I want to go driving the speed limit anyway, so why do I need the faster engine?

And I am 17 and my parents pay for my insurance, so a supercharger will not happen until after college, aka when my parents don't pay for my insurance anymore.

Oh and I got what is in my opinion a really good deal on my car, and I wasn't about to wait for a 1.8t when I am quite satisfied with the 2.8, besides once I get a job out of college, start a family, and get settled I plan on getting a B6 S4 avant anyway, but that is just a dream for now. [:D]
