View Full Version : European Trunk Lid??

So rumor has it that '96 A4's have a European trunk lid, much like that of Das Eighty's. Audi obviously can't bring in an older trunk lid, they all have to be US Spec. Short of searching junk yards for an older one that actually has this part, and shy of contacting an overseas company, anyone have suggestions?

TIA!!

be sure you want it, looks awkward w/ us plates. 96 do have em, keep looking. remeber 96s were all 12v 2.8s so that should help your junkyard search

Das Eighty is a ghey.

No idea where to get one other then a junk yard or maybe try trading someone with a car of the same color?

Junk yard is your only hope.

Strong words from someone who doesnt post that often. I'd use caution

I think it's kinda cool.

I agree with bitterchild, though. The Euro trunklid just looks strange with US plates.

Yeah... the plate over a plate thing... not too sure how I feel about that! No... no wait... I am quite sure how I feel about it... I just won't bother saying. :)

The rest of the car looks nice, though... [:D]

yeah.. dont get me wrong that is a hot car! but the two plates are just horrible.. is it just me or is your roof black?

two plates on top of eachother is THE GAAAY. a lot of mercedes do that for their front plate around here....please stop such nonsense, for the sake of audis everywhere.

bitterchild
12-07-2005, 08:30 PM
that's the new fad... black roof that is

so 4500 post mod and you've got a 12v? just wondering, not hating

Redgoat
12-07-2005, 08:31 PM
yup.. love the 12v.. damn reliable..

wtf? who cares about plates? he could rub shit on the trunk and that car would still be thousands times hotter than anything else in this post.

i think it looks like he put a us plate on it to make it legal.

nobody is saying the car looks ugly.. just the two plate thing.. seriously why not just take the Europlate off except for photoshoots or something.. its just tacky as all hell

dude, all you haters

look at your own car

then look at his

then realize that even with two plates on top of each other, das's car looks better than all of yours combined.

das eighty has one of the CLEANEST b5's ever. so quit talking shit.

Alot of people do it, its not uncommon. If he likes it, then what is the huge problem?

his 4500 posts must be from dealing with brilliance like this here:

ack...

i don't see how posting only a few times as oppose to posting 4500 is any different... if you're proficient in the workings of your car, that's enough to validate you. you don't need to whore post a few hundred posts to be 'respected'... lol.. redgoat is a respected member..

i personally don't like the double plating, but then again, no one gives a shit..haha..

fyi, bitter and redgoat are both respected at their own respective forums where they are mods.. (audigeek & audiforum).....

and i hope nobody took my first comment to heart.. it was merely sarcasm..

Post count has nothing to do with intelligence.. as you can see with the first link provided by DVS18T..

sadly all of the forums are going downhill in a hurry.... people just want easy answers to stupid questions and dont wanna do anything to learn themselves. few people seek to better the community with new knowledge and those who have are sick of answering the same shit over and over again.

well, there's alot of knowledge in the 1.8t forum on the tex, you just have to sift throught the sarcasm and attitudes over there. I'm used to it though, I came from the MKIII forum on the vortex.

I have to agree with DVS, fortitude is pretty bad. All everyone talks about over there is bashing people who refer to DV's as BOV's and which turbo inlet hose to get for their k03's, the samco or the neuspeed.

They have to understand that in some part of the world, DV means dump valve, and not Diverter valve. So DV = BOV in some places. A diverter valve is known as a recirc valve in some places...

Yea i agree with you dvs. And as for the trunk lid, i wanted one too, if you search youll find my post when i was asking if anyone wanted to trade me. THe only problem is if you find a trunk lid its most likely not gona match the color you have and it will need a respray so its kinda not worth it even tho i want it. I feel it matches the car much better than the us plate. I wish our plates were more euro looking but then again i wish we didnt have to use plates at all.

I GUESS ONE THING WE CAN DO TO KEEP FORUMS PROFICIENT IS TO STICK TO THE ORIGINAL SUBJECT....

Such hate, hahahaha. Typical though, my car, my taste, simple as that. Doesn't suit you? Buy an S4 and mod it to your liking then. I have different views on the modding world than you do. I'm big on OEM+, if I could drive around daily with europlates only, I would. This is 2nd best, and its only because I have my windows tinted. The NJ plate comes off for full photoshoots and car shows. Stop having a shit fit.

And yes, the roof is painted a Maserati Nuovo Black. My headlights are yellow too!! OMGNO!!! THE HATER PATROL IS COMING TO GET ME!!! OH NOESSSS!! O RLY?!

i wish i had that rear bumper and trunk. nice setup and like you said its your car fix it as you please, people like to talk shit when your not running the same stuff. People also like to think the stuff they run is the best. A lot of times neither are true. For instance when i first posted i wanted to buy the evo knock off wheels (think they are called evos) of the bbs lm2s people were hating on me, now its one of the most popular wheels. why waste your time making others happy.
