Picked this up almost 2 weeks ago, and had to do some work to it, before I could start driving it and tear down the A4. In the past week/weekend, Ive been working on getting the old steering rack out, because the previous owner had wrecked it, got everything replaced but the steering rack. Once I got it out, I noticed the steering rack housing was completely broken in half. I got the rack replaced, lowered it a bit, swapped to black mirror caps, and threw on some 17x8.5 Mandrus Millennium wheels with an et25, 235/45/17s. Im liking the final outcome pretty good.
Day 1 one I got the car.
I parked it the next day, and started working on it that following weekend. The steering rack was a complete bitch to get out, especially the bolt to the bottom of the rack, and power steering lines. There were several times I had to just pack up my tools and walk away from it.
The broken rack.
It steers/drives so much better now. Here are pics of the final outcome.
