ARI's Build thread 2001 Audi S4
haha some previous wheels and Future converted RS'
Lemme start off by saying, No this is not my first post on VWvortex haha i just decided that with some new additions of cars in my garage i couldn't be so discriminatory, so i wanted to make a new name.
Well here it goes, this car has been with me for a long time, since about 2004. Only minor modifications have been done, but nothing to such great expense and extent. Well I am getting older and finances come and go so I wanted to step up my game.
Mechanical ehh ill leave it how it is for right now, but lets focus on exterior and appearance from the beginning, since we have a show (H2o) coming up in a few months that im sure everyone is excited for, and since its gonna be my first time i kind of wanna make a good impression for myself. So appearance will come first as of now, and then over winter the engine will be pulled for some bigger stuff
I have been looking over the thread and noticing that b5's are getting some new spunk in there lives, breaking the rules and pulling out new ideas and tricks. Props to Jesster and DasEighty.
I like Jessters quote " It gets old to see RS4 reps, coils, and ecodes (nothing wrong at all with that... just want to do something different"
Well im gonna agree with him about that and gonna try to change some things up not tooo much though. Lets start off with wheels, I know everyone on Vortex hates on RS' and that everyone has them, but the truth is that in the Audi world NObody runs them...well maybe i've seen one or two of them, but I don't even know if they are real.
Lets change that... not only am i gonna run RS' but im gonna rub them the right way and throw on some 18" BBS RS'
Ordered them along time ago.. supposedly the first person in the US to order them from JustMatz weird...
18x8.5 in the front
18x10 in the rear
Some pics from the get go to make everyone happy.
Please don't look at the centers.. they are still waiting for me to decide what to do with them... painting a light silver or chroming... Im thinking the light silver, since too much chrome on a black car might look to blingin...
-New chrome bolts, Chrome BBS caps have come in..
-Ordering tires this week, then once everything is built, gonna have to play with my fenders to make em fit nice.
