Any of the old members still around?

I somehow accidentally ended up purchasing another B5 A4 today. Yes you can sometimes buy a car on accident. Bought it specifically because it was a no sunroof version and I need another winter / autox car to enjoy. Planning on just freshening it up and running a K04 setup to enjoy.

But as of now:
- ECS RA4 Clutch Setup
- S4 Front bumper w/ FMIC
- K04 w. appropriate addons
- Timing Belt/Waterpump Setup
- Vacuum/PCV setup etc.

hi

b5 still works alive and well. due for a new turbo soon

I really want one of those oversized K04 turbos from eBay because y not lol. Will probably stick to a regular k04 since I am unsure how to connect the turbo inlet to the turbo inlet pipe. Still love the B5 platform and probably always will.

civic hatchback 1.5t has all my attention currently

Since you aren't in the nicest area, weather wise that is, do you ride often? I down in sunny Florida, I rack up them miles!

Right on! I have a tornado red 06 Daytona, which was my first sport bike. But bikes have pretty much taken over as my main hobby now too. I also have a 2014 Aprilia dorsoduro 750, and a 2014 Aprilia RSV4. We only get probably five months of good riding a year here. But I almost solely commute on my bikes during that time. I also started doing track days a few years ago. So I try to fit in as many of those I can every year to get my speed fix in.

Heh, i just had twins. I feel bad for my car. I still crank it up and sits on a trickle, so theres that. I will get it our for a drive sometime.

Congrats on the baby, first month sucks, then you sorta figure out how to keep them calm. We got a night nanny a couple days a week to help with sanity.

Nice. Ya we just hired a nanny for the whole first month. She is going to be at our place 24/7 at our place. This forum can provide some daddy advice too i guess haha.

All the audis i went thru since my 99.5 volvano black:
99.5 1.8tqm, disco potato (current)
98 1.8tqm, gt28 elim kit, dedicated track car. But ended up flipping it twice.
2001 s4 stage 3, money pit
2003 1.8tqm, avant with some apr goodies
2005 3.0 quattro avant, automatic
2006 3.2 quattro avant, automatic (current)
Thinking of getting a B8 avant now to replace the B7

I went C5 Allroad 2.7t 6spd and did a full build and that burned me off the Audi platform for a bit. went Porsche then blew my engine at the track and picked up a B5 S4 Avant imola yellow. Then sold that and got into a BMW, MB, etc. and now I have two Porsche 911's, the MB, the race car, and the B5 I just picked up. Thinking about selling both the 911's to get into an R8 V8 Manual here in the next few months though.

I'm not really an OG, by any means (although 2013 was 6 years ago, time flies). But I "accidentally" bought a B5 for the same reason^. lol

Joined in '13 when I bought my first Audi, a B5 Avant. Sold that and picked up a B6 as a daily/project.

It's crazy to see all these old names. Where this forum used to be a daily visit, now I pop in every once in awhile, sometimes months apart.. Most of the questions have been already asked a million times so I barely comment anymore, just looking for anything interesting.

My car is on jacks, sans engine, with the rebuilt one 10 feet away, waiting to be put in. I pulled the original engine on Labor day.

Still here with the same B5 Avant I bought back in '04. She's officially a classic and I'm reviving her but it's been a long road with big breaks away from the 'zine.

I'm here. Engine is collecting rust on the cylinder walls in the garage just waiting to be cleaned and reassembled. Had high hopes of completing the car this winter but probably not. Only goal now is to get the cylinder head back on to protect the block surfaces.

Wait so you did not ditch the B5? but you have an ST too? Nice! My B5 is gone, I think a truck will replace it.

Gah b5 deal fell through. Decided to do one last check before delivery and knock sensors, cam position sensors were all throwing faults and the cct plug was completely missing. I think the PO accidentally cut it while doing the 2.0t coil pack upgrade. Don't want to deal with doing a whole replacement engine harness.
