Hey guys i just bought a 1998 Hibiscus red avant
2.8l v6 auto quattro for a daily driver

Looking for some good ideas for interior swapping.
Ive done some looking on here but cant find alot.
I fount the facelift headlights mod which i'll be doing when my depos get here.
but i'd like to convert the interior to black. I have the dark drown interior and hate it.

Are their any write ups for center dash/console swapping

You'll need to be searching for the s4 interior stuff ( a/b/c pillars grab handles sun visors) Vwvortex has lots of b5 audis that get parted out. Should be able to find lots of stuff that you're looking for there. (vortex actually is good for something! haha)

You could find a swapper really easy. Black headliner though would be S4 or just get your existing one recovered, same goes with handles and crap. Most came in either gray or light tan or balls flesh color....

i would keep the interior and paint the pillars black and roof top black

Definitely do what he said ^^^^^ [:)]

That is a nice color and it kind of looks like the beautiful leather color in the higher end Audi's (A8 & A5/S5)

just paint the exterior white and keep the interior :) that would be my perfect color combo

if it get a color swap its going to be satin black and that will only come if i get a diff motor for it and strip the int, the paint is damn near perfect and the body is almost perfect.

Seriously man, that hibiscus red is beautiful with that terra cotta interior. I believe Katt Williams would say: "keep it luxurious" haha seriously bro, its clean and rare and worth holding onto

The rear seats in the avant are different, if I am not mistaken. I could be wrong though. I can check when I get home tonight. My neighbor has a B5 sedan, I've got the avant. :)

they are different in how they latch

11-17-2009, 11:53 AM
so could you make it work? or it is a no go because of the back seat?

AudiTechS4
11-17-2009, 01:34 PM
the latches are different. i would need avant seats.

AudiTechS4
11-17-2009, 01:34 PM
i wonder if b6 sedan rears would fit because the latches are the same

Badass wheel choice! IMO, maybe a smoked side blinker may look better. just my .02

Thanks.I wanna delete them but i will smoke them soon. i need to get coilovers because the springs just don't drop it enough to my liking.

Paint the exterior white and call it a day. Wheels are tight and the white would just set it off. The interior of your car is amazing BUT it is your car so I'm sure you can find someone interested in doing a swap.

That car looks gorgeous with the drop and the wheels. Not a fan of that pinstripe down the side though.

AudiTechS4
12-27-2009, 08:30 PM
yeah i wanna remove the pinstripe but im afraid after 12 years of no sun there might be a difference in the paint colors
