i know its your car, but you might wanna rethink some of those purchases. your gonna turn it into a kraut mobile. the new wheels dont look terrible, just lower it some more.

not a fan of the future buys .. =/ .. it's going to rice out the car
imo your car would look better with face lift tails, rs4 grille and a drop ;-)
& change those headlights to a one piece

DrFeelGood
06-25-2009, 04:31 PM
I will avoid the rice look by all cost.. not the look i am going for. When i brought them headlights it seem like a good buy at that time. I will be replacing them. I think they must have lifted my car becasue the shit look way to high then it was.

06-25-2009, 04:39 PM
wheels are alright, but agree with above, one piece head lights a must... also since you have the adjustable konis, drop some more..

i am a hypocrit because i am still rolling on chrome heavy ass wheens from when i bought the car... so dont listen to me too much! lol

All good brother... I was diggin mine when i first got them.. Washing them bitches was a pain.. spent more time cleaning them then i did on the car inside and out.

Agreed with everyone above; drop it down, OEM one piece headlights (depos work too), OEM facelift tails as well.

hell with keeping them clean. i am hoping my wife tells me to get rid of them cuz they are dirty as well. I refuse to clean them! hahaha they are the biggest pain to clean.

Are the new wheels lighter? I see that they definitely do look nicer. I am simply trying to understand the motivation behind it..

nice mags i like the style, i like a little more rubber so would have gone smaller rims, thats just me, most people dont. I have to agree about the future buys though, its not a ricer. although i dont mind the bumper. how come you haven't tinted the front windows as well?

06-25-2009, 05:26 PM
I think you have horrible taste, you probably think the same of mine. I think it looks fucked, but if you like them, keep them. If you liked the first shitty rims you had you should have kept those too.. :)

I usually easy to please, but not with cars. I like subtle things, not flashy things that scream "HEY LOOK AT ME!" I even hate the factory LED headlights on the newer Audis, which everyone seems to love.

wheels aint my style, look alright though. I would also swap out your tail lights for the newer facelift ones. the ones you have look cheap. Headlights for 1 pieces.

I actually like those wheels. But most of the items on your list are a no go[down]. The only thing on your purchase list that I like are the devil eyes. And do a full custom exhaust from a TP or HFC back. Everything else, keep it OEM unless you need it for function purposes.

Not a fan like everyone else, it kind of looks like your making the car look like an accord. These cars look sweet with OEM parts and a little extra touch. Simple mods on these cars turn the car into a eye catching machine. Just because it's an after market piece and the price is cheap does not mean it will look good on the car. All in all it's your car though, do as you please just throwing in my thought.

Still too blingtastic for my taste but a definite upgrade.

Those altezza taillights were played out long ago. That rear bumper looks like a speed bump disaster waiting to happen.

Don't really know if they are lighter because the Chrome was not that heavy... I was just searching for a long time for some new wheels and when i seen these ..i like the way they looked.

Nah man.. I like the rubber like it is... Well I dont planned to turn my car into nothing more then it is.. AUDI. Whatever i change it wpont take away from it looking like an Audi. [up]

The reason why I dont have the front windows tinted anymore is the Military pass a new law, we can not have it like that no more. They trying to make us fit in with the Germans.

I appreciate your honesty but let me correct you on 1 thing. "HEY LOOK AT ME"........... Dude i drive an Audi... When you drive an Audi.. eyes are always on you. .. Don't need no wheels to get attention.

As far as your thoughts on my taste... To each has it own..

Yeah after reading the responds to this thread I starting to see what you all are saying about the tails... They are looking a lil cheap. As for the Headlights.. I know the i should save the 2 piece for KFC...lol I am going to change it.

Actually I wanted to do a custom exhaust...Have no clue what to buy.. so i firgue i start with a Muffler and work my way from there.

Appreciate it. Don't worry.. If i wanted a Honda I would have brought one. Just don't really feel the Stock look. It makes it look dull and plain but your right Cheap parts are not always good either. [up]

needs to be lower to make those wheels really work.

i would do that before anything else. and i agree you need new taillights.

you will find those ebay ones fade, leak and discolor after a few years.

for the muffler, i would just get new vibrant tips.

Drfeelgood. In the end it's your car. I have a lot of respect for you. Not because of your style or mods more for being positive while everyone else is in the negative. It erks me to see this much negativism. Wheels do look better a little lower to get rid of the gap and it will look worlds better. Keep up the positive attitude. We could certaily use more of it around here.

+1 too many people just bag on people for wanting differant things. I mean I can't say that I don't agree w/ the tail lights and stuff. Also the muffler I'd just get a Magnaflow but then again I did do that. You may have a way to pull it all together and really work and I just don't know it though. Good luck man.

Oh and I actually like the rims and think it will look great dropped.

width on the wheels/tires line up pretty nicely with the body of the car........do something with the stock grill in the hood and it'll bring some of the other stuff together.

I'm more of a function over fashion guy. That said, I do not like your car. It looks like fashion over function, like you're trying too hard to be cool. The wheels were an upgrade, minimally. You don't need all these taillights, body kits, mufflers, to express yourself. Save your money, buy some driving lessons or something. Respect my opinion.

The wheels look good but IMO I think less is more sometimes. Putting too much aftermarket stuff on your car cheapens the look. When I first got my A4 I saw all the aftermarket stuff and my eyes lit up, then I came to my senses and realized it's not a japanese car so why make it look like one.

The new wheels look so much better than the first set but you definately need to go lower to get them looking really good. Is the chrome trim around the windows OEM? I'm really not feeling that, the tails why not get stock and tint them?

willowtreexx
07-01-2009, 02:25 PM
love the positive attitude and not getting all defensive and bent out of shape when we tell you it doesnt look good. the one thing that i think will look the worst and i tell EVERYONE this is that rear bumper. it almost looks like two bumpers, one glued on the bottom of the other.

wheels are much better than before [up]

DrFeelGood
07-02-2009, 04:37 PM
I don't get all bent out of shape when people make comments.. I take the good with the bad. Some of the things i read from makes sence and some just venting. You can never make everyone happy (Not trying to) I do what i do for me and not for attention or too stand out. Like i said in earlier post.. I drive an Audi... I stand out regardless.

Only thing on my car not OEM is HEadlights, Taillights and wheels.

As for the tails.. it seem like a good Idea at the time but I like them better then the stocks.

i actually really like those wheels....i think the old school rs4 reps...similar to your wheels with the multi thick spokes look great on the B5 A4's....

also the color of your car is sweet too....like you said you need to drop it slightly in the back so that it is even from front to back with the wheel gap....

and like many people said, you should look into 1 piece euro headlights and get the 98.5+ backlights and your car will look sick! When i had my B5 the best upgrade i did was the headlights....

after that...i think your car will be perfect as is...no need for all those extras...
good luck....i like where you are going, and the wheels are a great addition.
