Hello chaps. Just a few pictures of my car, bought in November 08 (Former car was a MkIV TDI 'Bolf' over on MkIVs.net)

So far I've done...

- Remap (And new clutch - damn!)

- 3.5" Exhaust tips from a MkI TT

- Body coloured valances

- 18" (new style) RS4 reps - painted black apart from the front bits 18" S-Line ronals now, genuine too.

- Boot lip spoiler - Genuine ABT one (dealer-fit option, a little more aggressive than the S Line one, but not over the top)

- RS4 rear ARB

- Replaced the climate panel due to wear (were they buying bits from BMW?!)

- Retrimmed interior pillars & headlining in black

- Added an A3 8P gearstick as I like the look of it

- Dension Gateway 100

- Ambient lighting

- Cruise control

- Aero wipers

What I'd like to do...

- S Line front bumper

- Auto headlight with coming home function

- Rain sensitive wipers

- Maybe lower it a little.

I agree. Looks great Ben.

FWIW, I like the boot spoiler. What results did you achieve with the remap? 170 ish?

I know Damian, I'm very conscious of turning it into a very slow S4 - I don't want that, but like the mirrors!

Dave - I like the lip spoiler, just not the one I have. I will get the S4 one eventually. Remap was set at 160 as it's quattro so more stress on the clutch to start with and I wanted a mix of performance and longevity. I know some have 175 with no probs. I had thought about a hybrid turbo etc, but I think the clutch for it will be mega expensive!

Looks really well. My buttons are starting to fade on my climate control. Can you buy just the buttons and panel?

Thanks Dave.

Stevee - sadly not I'm afraid, I'm almost sure. but keep your eyes open on ebay they're the same panel used from 2001-2008 so there are planty, I got the whole thing for £42 delivered. Be aware that if yours comes from a Nov 04-on A4, you will need to do some additional (fairly easy) wiring as they removed an internal relay for some reason!

Hmmm... despite what I said about what I plan to do next, I'm actually going to do the Joey Mod this weekend (as I still have all the stuff left over from doing it on my Bora headlights!) and maybe a CCV catch can (if it arrives!)

Remove the headlight lenses, pop off the silver reflective bits, spray them black, refit

Really easy, only hard bit is sanding down, primering, painting and doing it carefully - it takes a whole day to do it right!

That's ok, each to their own. If we all liked the same, forums like this would be boring!

Exhausts - because it's a quattro, the exhausts are on either side, so I got some tips and had them welded on (old tips that point down were chopped off) If you don't have a quattro, the exhaust just goes to the left with double tips like the Golf - you need to get a B6 1.8T or B7 2.0T non quattro exhaust and add some heat shielding for the fuel tank on the right.

Dave - joey mod - looks really good, but bugger me it was a nightmare compared to the bora lights, they were sealed in a lot more thoroughly! It took 2 hours per lens to get off & multiple trips to the oven. Because it was so much harder, I had to bend the plastic around where the lens goes in a lot more than with the Bora. The A4 headlight is a lot snugger fit compared to the Bora, so guess what happened when I went to put them back? Wouldn't go in! By this time it was dark and I had silicone sealant all over my hands, I was raging. So I get them in eventually, but next weekend (when I don't need the car for a day, I will pop it back in the oven, straighten out the bent plastic, add some more silicone sealant to be safe, then they can go back on the car.

I would never do it again, but as I said it looks good. Will get some shots when it's daylight.

So do you want to edit this or shall I? [:D]

Oh well, at least it's done Ben. Looking forward to the pics.

Oh shut up you!

It was the obsessive German over-glueing that ruined the whole thing! The rest was ok!
