^^lol im sure he knows what he needs to do to his car, but he was talking about his first mod not what he needs to fix

i think it looks not too bad, did you do the rear too?

Would look sick if you had the emblems, wheels, roof, and side mirrors painted black.

nice! i remember starting on my car. my car is also a 98 with the stubby mirror. Ditch those headlights and upgrade to projectors quick. Light output is WAYYYYYYYYY better, especially if you get HIDS at the same time. It may not sound like the best mod, but it changes the look a ton and improves the lighting a lot. When i did it i was pissed i didnt do it sooner.

car is actually a 96,

i havent done the rear yet but i already debadged it but i do plan on painting the rings black like the front, i found a set of 99 spec depo headlights for a really good deal im not to fond of the projector celus ring style those belong on a bimmer,

i also plan on painting the botton trim red blacking out the roof and getting rs4 bumper and sides, the list goes on this was the cheapest easiest mod to do an it only took me about an hour

it just depends what you like. a 96 though...holy moly. DEPO also makes black housing projectors without halos or the LEDS. It's what i use and have had no issues at all.

Cleans up the car. Makes it look like it should have been. Painting the rest like i stated would then step yourself out of the norm and make your car more unique.


Would look sick if you had the emblems, wheels, roof, and side mirrors painted black.

Just throwing ideas. What type of wheels do you have? Stock rims, aftermarket? 15,16,17, ect?

Honestly it looked better stock. I know people love painting things, especially if it's quick and cheap. But sometimes it just doesn't equate to a good idea.

the only thing that will be painted to match is the black portion of the lower trim and the roof blacked out an maybe the ugly chrome around the windows

im still on stock wheels, i was looking at vmr vb3 v710's but i just talked to peter at vmr and the prices went up, just out of my budget so im still looking for the wheels i want any suggestions?

I'd either refinish your lower grills to match the black or try treating them with Mother's Back-To-Black. The new grill only makes your lowers look that more worn and old. Good step in the right direction though, I think it would look pretty nice with a wash and wax and retreated lowers. Of course, the washer cap and ecodes would do wonders to complete your oem+ front.

im looking for b6 s4 seats...

FYI except for a few wiring differences and colors, the seats are pretty much the same for the B6 and B7 S4. You can get Alcantera inserts or colored leather like mine:

my roomate bought those headlights, all black housing. He decided to be fancy and put higher watt bulbs in.. aaaand after an 8min drive he has now melted a hole through them. Great purchase! haha
