Soo, I sold my allroad, short lived as they tend to be. Realizing the amount of work to maintain and bring it to where I wanted it to be was out of reach for me currently. So with the money I picked up a smaller, more manageable version.

2001 Audi A4 avant. 5 speed transmission , 1.8t and maintained very well, thankfully seeing it has 190k miles.

Anyway, onto pictures.

The rear bumper was pretty scuffed up from normal wear and tear I'm guessing. So I fixed that.

Then got wheels on , and got a real camera.

Then a little time went by

Stock B5 seats are not the best, and the drivers side always split. So I picked up some mk2 recaros and had a friend fab them to fit. He had to move the center guide rail over about 2 inches, and bring the rear legs down about the same amount.

The car will be headed to the upholstery shop in the next two weeks to get them and the rears re done to match.

Im going for a grey tweed like finish.

Also, picked up some wheels from Trevor (harlerocco).
18x9 square Lm's, 5x114 unfortunately. I'll just run wobble bolts though.

Yeah, I'll second that. Same seats I had in my 8V MKII (swapped). I miss that car.

Nothing exciting, but reverse mounted lm's are always a good sight.

Wheels are about done. Tried a different finish at first with some hammered paint. didn't end up liking it. So we're doing color matched Audi silver.

Also, finally doing some much needed audio upgrades. Sound Qubed "pro audio" 6.5 woofers paired with their "super Tweeters" for each door. Will be running everything active from a Zapco 650, 6 channel amp
