today i came across some pics of my car back in sept. when i bought it and it was bone stock except for the AMAZINGLY AWESOME chrome Momo wheels haha (total sarcasm). its even shocking to me how different it looks and how its coming along for a poor college student haha.


VS. NOW...

a million times better looking!

great improvement[up]

is that an rs4 grill and bumper? I really like that, and the chrome trim around the windows. My '99 Avant does not have the chrome around the windows, where can I find it?

i was looking back at some of my old b5 pics from 98-99... i had wheels and non-sport suspension on mine and thought it looked fine... up until i looked at some before and after shots. Then i realized how noobish i was back then .. hehe

but it's hard to believe how far you've come until you do some digging for old pics... looks muuuuuch better now. [:)]

Good work straightening that A4 out. I've had my A4 for under a month and i'm itching to get some mods done. I just got it tinted, bronze on melange and now i want to switch out the rims and put a mesh grill in front. the rims you have on very similar to the set that i'm looking at purchasing from a friend that he has on a jetta, so i now have a good idea how it will look.

thanks for getting that gold package off the street.

Wheels on a Jetta won't fit your A4.

The chrome trim around the windows comes on the 2.8s, 1.8Ts got the black surrounds.

The Jetta bolt pattern is 5x100, A4 is 5x112 - you'll need adapters.

yeah it came with gold emblems on it...those were the FIRST things to go haha. couldnt stand em. i have an RS4 grille on the front with an S4 bumper W/RS4 style mesh. i have a CF hood on it currently as well. the side and rear lowers are painted to even out the lines with the s4 bumper.

oh, and about those chrome wheels...when i put my new wheels on i left the chromie's over at my buddies house on the side of his garage, he kept telling me to get em outta there and i kept spacing it off, well last week he called and asked if i came and picked them up and i said no...apparently they had been stolen. who the hell would steal those ugly SOB's?! haha so now i get to find something else for next winter...

God, were those wheel hideous! LOL!

04-20-2005, 01:37 PM
Yeah...the before wheels weren't to hot. But now it's sweeeet!
