Hey guys, my names is Scott from northeast Ohio and I just got rid of my e36 BMW about three months ago for my new dd and toy. I picked up a 99 b5 1.8t with some tasteful mods. I am a member of audiforums, but was refereed here and figured id check in and post some pics. Lemme know what you guys think!
kkk k04-15, forge hybrid diverter, Rs4 18inch on 205/35/18s, S tech lowering springs, dark blue (fake) leather fully loaded, upgraded headlights with HID 6k heads and fogs with ballasts, boost gauge (terrible location), typical ABS right rear sensor fail, all maint. done with 148k on the clock, and although around 500 lbs lighter, its FWD. 5speed and dialed in at 15psi since I drive a lot. Future mods are: all new silicone turbo piping, new computer software, S4 front bumper cover and side skirts, and MOAR LOW!

BTW the hideous low functioning cone was taken off for the stock airbox with a better snorkel and heat shield

love it... only thing i see is that it looks as though the tires are little small...if it was on coils and you could lower it i think that would help that issue a lot... other than that... LOVE IT

Yeah I actually really dislike the tires, debating on finding a set of 215/40/18 all seasons but it would probably be expensive. That or throw some stockers on it with some good tires for the snow thats coming, and thank you !

Nice clean car. Those are RS4 replica's, yes? Either way, I would recommend not running them in the snow and salt. That stuff loves to eat aluminum rims, especially aftermarket ones with a lower quality finish. Save 'em for summer. Also, 18's are horrible for winter traction anyway. You want a skinny tire with lots of sidewall for snow. A 195/60/15 would be the ideal size for a winter tire. Although, it certain.y doesn't look as nice.

Dark blue pleather? is it my monitor or what? looks like a black on black interior to me.

Yes its dark blue, I thought it was black the first week I owned it. The picture was taken in the shade somewhat with my cell phone making it hard to see its blue. Also walky_talky20: thanks, im in the process of finding a lug tool to fit these weird lugs. They are almost like a tuner lug but the previous owner never stashed the adapter anywhere and all 20 lugs are the same before I can pull em' off and change to some stock wheels

I'd have to agree with the tires being a bit small though...

Wow. I wouldn't drive it much then. If you get a flat, you'll be kinda screwed.

Hey man, I'm from Mansfield and I go to OSU Mansfield. I have a lot of friends up at AU so maybe I'll see you up there sometime! With the snow we got today and that's continuing tomorrow you might want to go to the all seasons and winter rims asap!

I just when through the same thing bought car with those on it. Seams tire shops put these kind of lugs on when you get wheels from them. They are called spline lugs. I went to advanced auto and had to buy a kit with lugs to get the tool was like 25 I think. I now have set of lugs I cant use but do have the tool. If those are reps you might have tapered seat lug studs. if so and you get oem wheels you will need to pickup some ball seat lug studs for them.

Thanks dude, and yeah, ive been so busy messing with my tune (because the previous owner leaned it way out) and worrying about my tires that i havent thought about moving them, I will get to that this weekend


i think your color blind haha interior looks to be black... i will continue to think its black till you prove otherwise :) Haha you know what ill go take a better pic and show ya. I do see what you mean though


Looks great just put the OEM grill back on! Thanks, I thought about repainting it because the grill paint faded and finding some audi rings and adding them to it so it doesnt look so, well look the way it does
