By the time you sell your coils, it should run you another 1,000 or so. Depending on your coils

What coils do you have?

http://www.ecstuning.com/Audi-B5_A4-Quattro-1.8T/Suspension/Air_Ride/ES2222282/ for a basic kit, i am sure you could put it together cheaper.

$3,000. Unless you A) custom fab a set or B) want to run a shitty management system.

PS: Don't buy an air ride kit from an uneducated company like ECS, order from BagrRiders or like companies that deal with this stuff on a daily basis.

It's totally up to you, but I'd run a digital management system. They are easier to install and much better at controlling what goes on. Analog is just a pressure gauge with a needle and you need to adjust accordingly when you drive. Digital will allow you to program different heights which you can control from preset buttons.

Analog is cheaper, but the upgrade is worth the extra money.

Just giving him an idea of how much a low end system would cost, where a base price is an let him go from there.

You are right though... Do you want to be on eBay coilovers, or buy quality ones from sponsors on this site..

Dump her so you can dump your car... Seems logical to me.. Glad my girlfriend does not check out Audizine when she is on my computer...

lol wow. whipped.

That sucks man. If you want to do it, do it. did you say your mom or your gf, they seem one in the same.

If you are going to post on your bf's account, you might as well post a picture of yourself to prove it wasnt him...

You said girlfriend, not wife. She shouldn't have anything to do with your finances.

Agree one hundred percent. I would do bags and am actually thinking about it, buutttt......as previously have stated wtf is with your gf she has no say until you are married even then it is questionable. You can piece together your own kit it would be way cheaper that's the route I would go. By the management used and the tank used.....with that being said what size tank and what kind of system management are you looking for? It could be done for 2k

The logical decision for a relationship is to get bags. Comfy and high when you need it, then slammed with the touch of a button.

It's your car. Do whatever the hell you want with it. Don't let your girlfriend decide what you can and cannot do.

my girl loves my bags [:D]
if you really wanna bag your car, do it. you could pretty easily piece together a cheap kit with used stuff for under 1500. and fuck the girlfriend especially if you think you spent all that extra money fixing your car because you couldn't air up. she'll come back after being jealous of all the other bitches your car picks up anyway [cool]
