Congrats on what looks to be a clean car! Except that brown thing on the hood.

Don't get coilovers off of ebay. Cheapest/most bang for the buck are Racelands. If you're super cheap get the regulars $369 USD. Rode in an S4 with them and was quite surprised of the ride quality. Don't slam it. 25" GTF MINIMUM and you should be fine.

EDIT: Also because someone will tell you "this is covered at least x times per week," Google is your friend [;)]

Welcome, Your car looks super clean!

My advice is that you recently got the car, Is to try and break it in a little bit and get completely used to it in stock form and if you need to perform any repairs to do those first.

The thing with coilovers is that if you go cheap eg: EBay, You'll end up regretting them. I'd say go with a reputable or popular brand, and make sure to look up reviews and information about the quality of them.

Raceland is always an option is you're looking to go the cheaper route. $399 for the Ultimos http://www.racelandus.com/coilovers/audi-coilover-kits/audi-a4-b5-quattro-ultimo-coilovers.html and $369 for their basics http://www.racelandus.com/coilovers/audi-coilover-kits/audi-a4-b5-quattro-coilovers.html

So you think that the rear shocks and springs are from an Avant? It probably won't make a difference either way, You may want to take the wheels off at some point and check out the situation before you make a move on coilovers.
