      Not for the first 80 miles. But the last 20 were rough, a mk1 cabby and myself were the only cars that you could call low. Everyone else was at stock ride hight or a little low and flexing over bumps, so us trying to keep up and not having any indicators were just nailing them.

      After three days the car is back in action. Tomorrow the BLQs are coming off and the stock boys are going on.

      The deal is, im trading the wheels and tires for a mk1 Rabbit 8v. Runs strong, has a clean title, and less miles on it than my A4. It has coils, full exhaust, short shift kit, front and rear sway bars. New breaks, clutch, radiator, alternator, and timing belt and water pump were just done. It does have some rust but what 84 rabbit doesn't. As for the BLQ`s, i wasn't in love with them and they were gonna get taken off for the year next week any way. When tax time comes around and im out of college in May ill get a new set. I feel like this is a deal I couldn't resist, im driving to Wilmington NC tomorrow to get it. I dont think ill be able to sleep tonight

      So the wheels are gone and the Rabbit is home. The A4 doesn't look too bad almost tucking stock wheels and flush as crap.

      Nice picture/ build thread. From the stock wheels to the blq's it was an amazing change it looked soo nice when i first looked at it. That cabby was a nice trade for a set of wheels.

      Yeah i was about to take the wheels off for winter anyway. And when i took them off i was gonna try and sell them to get something different for next year. So i thought the trade was a good deal/idea.

      In my opinion I liked the stock wheels more then the blq's, especially in the first photo were your slammed on the stock wheels, so I feel it was a good move. Its just to bad it isn't a GTI , whats the plans for it?

      The first plan is too fix a few rust spots. Then wheels and tires so i can go low. Im thinking some wide 13s . Im having mixed feeling about paint. I kinda like the beat up look as long as the car runs strong (it does). I wanna get a duck bill for the front and a big roof basket. But right now my goals are to clean it up more and get a headliner (it doesnt have one). the coils are all the way down, it just wont go any lower on those wheels and tires.

      I like how the BLQ's looked on this car when i saw the pic. Black wheels can pull it off I dont kno how they would look hyper silver on a black car but im sure i can search for a pic. to lazy tho

      With that wood grain steering wheel do you not have an airbag now?

      Yes no more air bag, but IMO air bags kill people so i dont mind.

      tasteful rat rod ftmfw!!! I too like the rust look (not necessarily rusted out just that rust color look). I almost bought a harliquin that was all beat to hell to do a rat rod version...I should have done it

      In your first post you said it was a 5 speed. I was under the impression that all 2004 and 2005 models were 6 speeds? Or did it only change in late 2004?

    19. 11-10-2011 08:55 AM #69
      I believe his is a fwd....maybe that has something to do with it

      Ah! I've seen this car rolling around Delaware (too small not to). I loved the Roti's on there but the stocks look tough too. Awesome car.
      Of course I'm female - Which lady doesn't love four rings?
