Hey guys,
Just thought I'd give a quick hello to some of the old timers still lurking in the B5 A4 forums......Sold my GT3071r 01.5 Avant about 2 years ago, with delusions that a C4 S4 would be a better fit........Boy was I wrong....I regretted selling my Avant within DAYS of owning the C4.......Anyway, thanks to LouB5 (quite possibly the best AZer I've ever had the pleasure of dealer with...GREAT seller and person), I'm finally back where I belong. Just bought his freshly built 2000 2.0 GT30R A4 on Meth.......couldn't be happier

(more pics later)

Very VERY strong car. I've got a few little things to fix before I can do some WOT pulls (anyone know a good welder in Boston?), but it's a beast [drive]

Not many mods left to do......but the "mod bug" always finds a way.....

Anyway, happy to be back

welcome back!!! I seriously miss your old Avant but this new one is sexy as well. Such a nice find and setup real nice too. If you dont mind me asking, how much did you get it for?

Welcome back! Your avant was one of the Audi that convinced me to get one (sadly I didn't get an avant, kinda wish i had), I loved it.
Also what rims are those on your new Audi? They look just like the ones I have.

Thanks guys! It feels good to be back

The wheels are one of the few parts of this package that I truly don't like.......I'm looking to replace them ASAP. They'll be FS hopefully within the week

Lots of things....it was a maintenance whore, heavy as HELL, handled like a pig, and was just a little too old for my tastes.....was still a fun car tho. I'm just more suited for a B5 or B6

As for the wheels.....no idea what they are


nice car, how come you did not go for the b6 s4 you wanted since you got rid of the avant?

Lots of reasons........but mostly because I couldn't justify spending that much money on a car at this point in my life.......this car is faster, and a little less gaudy than a B6 S4.....don't need that kind've attention...


Welcome back. Hope you drive this one more than wrench on it :)
Haha....mmmeeeeee toooooo......I think this one will see the road QUITE a bit more

Ah sweet... I saw this ad on there and wished i was in the position to buy it. read the build and all that stuff.

I remember your avant too, i thought you still had it when i joined though. It was a real beauty [up] Good deal on the new purchase. Looks like a fun car.

Edit: Just realized i have been on here since late 08, which makes almost 2 years.... Man 2009 was a quick year
