Whats good everybody, long time "lurker" / long time vortex member in general... Picked up my first A4 maybe about 2 years ago, it was my second car, it was a beat to crap 1998 Black 5 speed 1.8t Quattro, I instantly fell in love with the car... funny thing is the only reason i bought it was because there aren't very many other options for a small little awd turbo sedan for less then 5 grand... After purchasing i realized it was far from a sports car (stock atleast) but came to love just how the car drove, it was amazing, since that car had a laundry list of issues including all 4 windows and sun roof not working, beat to crap body, interior, and salvage title, with no stereo, i was quick to sell it, i wanted another 1.8t but with only 2500 cant exactly be all picky, so i settled on a pretty clean 96 12v 5 speed quattro, it was black and actually in amazing condition for having 185k on the odom when i bought it... it was just a temp daily till i graduated school. No motor mods or anything except i did a TON of maintenance, mainly preventative maintenance, ended up picking up a cheap set of 18x8.5 RS4 and a pair of 99 face-lift tails, other than that she stayed stock and just was driven to and from school, 10 hours of driving minimum a week and that car didnt give me 1 single issue, truly proved audis build quality and earned my trust... and it was sooooo god damn smoooooth EVEN on 225/45Rs with blown shocks lol (dont worry that pic v was first day i got it lol, those hideous square fogs were ripped off that same day...)
After i graduated from school i got some money from family and used it along with money i had saved to pick up the car i have been wanting for way too long, an 01 avant! (sorry for ****ty iPhone/ night time pic, just got it yesterday night!)
She is an 01 Avant, Hibiscus, sport-line, 5 speed quattro, 118k on the odom and i am ecstatic i found it!
Since owning it i have installed an OEM S4 grill, OEM S4 shift knob (had a god damn egg on it when i bought it) and ordered a fully Electric Stepper Motor Podi boost gauge kit, some floor matts, along with an ebay SS...
Once i am all caught up on maintenance i plan on doing a k04 build.. nothing crazy, it is only temporary while i peace together a t3 2.0 build.. but hear are my plans so far, let me know if you have any insight on some of the parts i am using, i love any information i can get!
