      Ok, so I'm pretty bored and I finally have a few parts pilling up so I might as well make a time line.
      I used to have an '03 Subaru WRX, which I loved and had from brand new. I've wanted an Audi for years, my brother has had VW's, and so when I found out a little nugget was on the way I sold my WRX and got my Audi. I basically gave away my WRX with only 45k miles on it in May and picked up my Audi within the week.
      I got my '01 1.8T Quattro Manual from a 67 year old guy in Minnesota, who had all the paper work for the car, was a car guy himself, and just did the timing belt and supporting maintenance, which is a plus.
      Here are two pictures of my '03 WRX... I still have a Sparco harness bar and JDM v7 STi door cards for sale.


      This picture below was taken by Keith (Tifun).

      Here is a picture of the car when I first got it:


      I wasn't a fan of the Kamei grille the previous owner had on the car, only "mod" on the car as well. So I replaced it with an RS4 grille I got off someone on audizine.
      (sorry for the phone pic)

      I then took the 1.8T emblem and A4 emblem off the trunk, we all know what that looks like and I probably didn't even need to put that in here.
      So it had been a few months and I couldn't handle knowing that I didn't have parts for the car yet. So in August I picked up some BBS RS's, having a baby has made my rebuild project take way too long.

      Pic of the RS's being test fitted on my car in August. Once again some bad pics.

      Moving on...after my RS purchase in August, I decided to wait a while before dropping more cash on my car. Biilllsss are a killer.
      Anyways, I was feeling in the holiday spirit this year and decided I deserved a gift, so I picked up some KW V1 coilovers. I plan on putting them on in the next week or so.

      Also, thanks to family member's appreciating my hobby of cars, I got some DDM HIDs to throw in my headlights.
      (only pic I have so far, this is where we put the ballasts).

      I forgot to mention that I am rebuilding the RS's and they are taken apart right now. I've stripped them and am getting ready to have them powder coated a different color. I'm polishing the lips, getting black bolts, and then the face will be a color of my choice.
      Here is a pic of a lip I am getting closer to finishing.

      A sort of before and after on the lips, even though they're two different lips and the picture is really bad.

      Like I said though I have more work to do on the lips.
      Also, here is my daughter's first mod., it goes in the car in about a month when she is ready to rock it out!!!


      Like other timeline thread's, I'll post up pictures and more info when I get more parts on the car. I'll also keep updated pictures of my RS build in here as well.

      looks like a nice platform! Im excited to see someone pull these off on a black car! I did for about 2 days on my old A4 2 years ago, I didn't like them after all the work i did and this was the only picture i got of it, but better luck to you!

      I remember seeing this pic of your car with them on, I think they looked great!! I actually sent you a PM about something regarding the RS's in the spring or something, I don't remember haha. I'm hoping they turnout well after doing all this polishing and paying for powder coating.

      Colin as you know I can't wait to see it setup. Your WRX was by far the cleanest I've seen. I'm excited to see the wheels finished. I think it's a "region" thing that me you, drew and Brad all seem to have very similar tastes in mods haha. Here's an old firends RS's from a few years ago. I actually liked them a lot and almost got them but I already had black wheels and wanted to go a different route.

      Thanks Keith!! Hopefully I can have an update soon on some stuff and yes we all four seem to have some similar taste's. There normally are no secret plans, because one secret plan is the same as one of the other 3 people's plan haha. Us midwest folk.

      dont worry guys with RS's, they are every where you turn when it comes to VWs. Hopefully we can make some progress on the wheels really soon since the weather seems to be taking a turn for the better.

      they are a classic wheel that will never go out of style in my opinion.

      RS's aren't "unique"..there badass. Like someone said, its a timeless wheel.

      I agree the RS is a classic wheel. I've wanted a set for years, I wanted a mkII real bad. So, when I decided on a B5 I knew this was the wheel I was putting on it. I'm excited to see how everyone else redoes their RS's. It was only a matter of time before the RS made it's way to Audi.
