Just wanted to say hello everyone! Just picked up a used 99 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro in silver yesterday with 175k on the clock. So far the car shifts and drives GREAT! Taking her to my mechanic to get water pump and timing belt done to be safe this week, and have them change out all fluids, and fix a small exhaust leak.

Car had a few basic mods done:
S4 Wheels (I believe) Titanium finish, look solid
S4/RS4 Suspension, control arms, and lowering springs
CF OEM Style hood (not a fan of this, going to be searching for someone to trade hood for hood)
Audio system upgraded, sounds like shit to me (was a car audio installer for a long time)

Only issues I am facing currently are a ripped driver seat, small exhaust leak, and I noticed yesterday (of course after I got it home) a radiator fluid leak. The body overall has no rust, very little dings on the car considered it was parked on the streets of Brooklyn.

Plans overall, not many this is going to be my daily driver so I can park my 2013 Sti this winter and build her up. Simple cosmetic things will be done...

Interior LED upgrade
Rubber floor mats
Ebay front lip

I may eventually when the suspension needs to be changed do coilovers and change the wheels to cheap reps.

Nice cars, Welcome!

Wheels look like they're from a B7 A4 Titanium [up]

Just make sure you like how the Cupra lip looks! They're either a hit or miss.

Thanks man! Yeah I am not 100% sure on the wheels, all I know is they are 18s have good tread life on tires and will get me through winter!

Will probably do reps from VarrsToen like the Work Equip style they produce and call it a day aside that lip.

All my money will be going into a wide body, new lips, FMIC, cage etc for the STi this winter [emoji16]

Aren't CF hoods not supposed to be used with a hood strut like that?

BMOS only used to keep it open while I am working on the car...typically don't leave it in.... I really want to get rid of the stupid hood already though

I'd trade you for my stock silver hood, but jersey is a little far. Just check out having a body shop spray it silver.

Yeah I am thinking about that... Or I might just go to a junkyard and see if I can find one

It's a beater this car I really am not looking to blow money with body shops....hence why I am doing the bumper myself, suspension, heater cores etc.... Trying to keep costs down to a minimum
