European B5's are the best...id suggest coilovers though. But im biased.

Does the euro b5 not come with those annoying ass headlight washers and caps? or did u shave them yourself? Just wondering kuz you're the only other one I've seen without them.

ummmm, only xenon headlights got them. thats a rule here.. if u drive ur car with xenon and without the washers the cops take ur car and u have to pay lots of money to get it back.
i dont got xenon so i dont need them..

I see, I ask because your center console is the half facelift style. I don't know if the german spec cars follow the same updates as the us spec a4's.

It is a very nice lookin avant [up]

Half facelift?
I herd there are differences between the US and euro B5 Facelift, the B5 got 2 drink holder? (right word?)

Its a facelift console, its just a single din one.

Not all facelift cars have double din, no such thing as a Half facelift.

torax
01-13-2011, 02:52 PM
true, i was wondereing what a half facelift is.
i've got the "final b5"

and btw: got an 15" rockford woofer installed but still with the concert I, i just love the OEM look.
someday i'll buy an RNS-E and the double din console..

Ok there isn't technically a half-facelift, but I think of the single din with the facelift fog/hazard/cupholder as not really the full facelift since 1) It does not have the double din and 2) You have to replace most of the center console to get an OEM double din to fit. Am I not allowed to make to name things now?

i think 80% of the german B5s got sold with 1DIN! 2DIN consoles are pretty rare here. Not only the facelift, .. all B5

Yes but not all of them have the facelift foglight buttons/hazard button/cupholder at the top, and the seperate shifter piece.

This is a prefacelift:

And then what I am trying to say is the type you have (which I also have) is a facelift but not a full facelift with a double din.

torax
01-13-2011, 04:02 PM
Okay whatever. My english is too bad or i just dont understand you.
IMO there are only 2 different B5's. pre facelift (the pic u posted) and my car.

and btw. i got the 2000 model with digital clock

i dont got xenon so i dont need them..

lol serious? i've got xenon bulbs in my car and it came with the caps and plumbing but no actual jets for the washers... so i shaved the holes when my bumper was demolished and couldn't find a cheap enough one that came with the caps

i wish i didn't have a double din... i can't seem to find an install kit for an aftermarket system because my cd player has failed and radio where i'm at is 2 songs and 15 minutes of commercials

Great to see the evolution of your car. [up]

I have an odd but serious question...is there such thing as "American Style" in Germany? I may be out of the loop here but the theme, or modding style if you will, looks very similar to what a lot of the guys is The States are doing (especially the VW guys) and less "Euro".
