      when i got her the first mod i did was swap the chrome girlle for a black wolfsburgh, took off the jetta badges and some blue hue HIDs for the headlights

      updated, color matched markers, test

      fitted the reiger wing. im sittin on these stock mugellos (however you spell it) but i have these shined up the rs4's to put on soon. right now the rears are spaced 10mm but i didnt get to take new pix. more coming soon!

      Did you get an OEM set chromed or are those reps? I'm assuming reps since a set is so cheap. I don't dig chrome, but those are ok

      nah no close.... i respect your sillyness tho. quick update. i ordered a magnaflow catback with 2.5" piping along with a vibrant quiet flow resonator so i can get a nice tone. nothing too loud and obnoxious, my goal is sound but to keep the drone down. i still have to find some tips that sit nice on the muffler and in the valence because im not liking the ones that come on it. i mounted the wheels for the summer and even tho im poking like a fat persons belly, miraculously i get no rub! even with people in the car. it works! i have a set of fogs on the way and euro fog covers that i have to modify and get painted to fit my bumper along with a reiger rear window spoiler that i have to get painted and im debating on mounting aswell.





      i plan on getting some rear camber when i go to get the exhaust put in, just for looks and to tuck the back alittle.

      once again pardon the iphone4 shots... i promise better pix soon as i can steal my girls rebel

      Thanks ABA im doing what i can on a budget. I like the rs4s... They fit to my liking and give my car that aggressive look i wanted with that wide n low stance. Theyre just kind of heavy but it makes me drive more cautious you know

      Im on neuspeeds although most will recommend coilovers for adjustable hieght. I just wanted subtle drop just to get rid of the wheel gap. Having lowered it i have to drive a little more cautiously, certain speed bumps and driveway entrances are bigger than most. I havent noticed a change in any bouncyness but it handles courners a little better. With the wheels i can still get 4 people in with no prob but since im poking alittle i have to take it eaven more easy
