      You don't seem to understand the concept of 'k'. It means thousand so its 50k and 80k not 8000k

      Glad you're still enjoying your car. I wish my ownership experience had turned out differently. The people who like these cars, and get a good one, seem to love them unconditionally.

      One of my favorite S4's...clean, simple and elegant with plenty of powah

      Fantastic car, great composition as well. The Red barn sets off that Nogaro Blue very well. Nice work.

      Looks great and that is a killer interior combo, I love that silver trim. If I sell my R32 I want to get an S4, I've always wanted a B5.

      I just noticed you are in the D, where do you live if you don't mind me asking? Where is that picture? I live in Rochester Hills and work in Farmington so I know the area and was just curious.

      Awesome B5, I am going to have one eventually and that blue interior is so awesome

      Car looks great. Don't see many B5 S4s in that type of condition anymore.

      I posted these pics in The Barn Lounge and the only feedback I got was how nice the stupid car looked.

      The turbos are great. It's been about a year and a half now, no issues.

      I was. Installed K04/K16 hybrids around the end of 2004. Upgraded to Frankenturbos late 2010.

      The Frankenturbos spool earlier and have better top end as well.
