Dope ride. I am so stoked that you posted this! I am in the middle of deciding if I should purchase either this silver or this green one. I have been leaning toward the green but my boys have been trying to talk me into silver. There are very few green ones fixed up that I could find to help with my decision. Green it is!

Was it originally Cactus? Or did you change it up? I'm trying to think if Cactus was even available on the A4. I know I've seen Cactus S4's...

With fresh paint like that, you could certainly mistake it for a brand new car. B5 body is just timeless.

[up] Love the cactus green, if I had to repaint my b5 it would definitely be one of my choices.

Goddamn that's hot! You might have just convinced me on a new wheel set.

Good job.

Walky, Cactus was available on the B5 A4. I've seen one in person and a girl I'm pretty close to has one too. It's one of those colors that is just 100x better in person. Looks good in pictures but in person there is sooo much depth to it.

thanks guys! the car was originally Cactus. i had a silver b5 with rs4 reps and painted lowers i like the cactus a whole lot more. Theres millions of silver b5's around. The only cactus ones ive seen in person are stock and 96-99 so im glad i found this, and i got the paint job for FREE my dad owns a body shop in allentown p.a but i can get yours painted for around 1200. He sprayed six coats of clear coat on it. i think thats why it looks so good (:

That explains why I haven't seen your car around. The paint does look nice from the pictures. ~$1200 for an overall paint job is very cheap, my dad has an auto body shop and I know he wouldn't even touch it for that price.

Thanks. This isn't my thread so I don't want to post a lot of pictures of my car. If you search my name i have multiple threads of all the stages my car has been through.

We NEED an official CACTUS thread. Somebody (who has one of the cactus) should get on this. I want more pictures of the cactus...thanks.

What do you think it would cost for a color change?

I have been itching to paint my santorin orange ever since Sienna's car was picked apart. His was the only audi spec orange i have seen.

Papa stone has one actually..

Oh man oh man. Nice clean effin car. and when I layed eyes on cactus green in person , it is trully a magnificent color. I bought a cactus s4 and I would not trade it for any other color EVER.

I never liked cactus until this thread..

And 1200 is an insane low price. Alot of shops will charge 3x that.

I wish you were closer, that's a really good price, and it looks like quality work.

Love the car, it's really clean. The more I see green B5's the more i like them.
