      Didn't you have a Nogaro Blue that would see ice racing? Or am I confusing the user?

      Sweet deal, that's a steal for sure!

      Thanks now that i actually see the username it dawned to me. What ever happened to him? His S4 was beautiful, and last i remember of him was his adventures with that Dakota R/T... he is the reason why i love that damn S4 so much, so clean OEM+ knowledgable. A1 and his White S4 also, two of the most simple yet elegant versions of the car.

      I am FB friends with him, he seems to have gone all-in on MTB racing. Think he lost a bunch of weight and is pretty competitive in his class too.

      That's awesome. Good for him.

      Does this mean quitting TCL has improved yet another life? What are we all doing here...



      I mean Brandon, I've got a set of K04s with 25K on them in my garage, if you ever want to really go fast on the ice.

      Congrats on the B5S4, always loved driving these with K04's and RS4 parts....These and Viggens have been my unicorn of never working out every time I try to buy one.

      If you're serious, I have pretty much everything to go stage 3-. All I'm missing is fueling.

      Was planning to drop them into the Allroad, but never got around to it.

      I read K-04 and my mind went to K02 and I thought that was an aggressive choice for an S4....

      FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD FOR TCL, please toss those KO4s in your S4.

      Since it seems my wheels will fit. Might as well get these here so we can throw them on right away.

      Total now up to $2084.99

      Supposedly someone is sending me a completed spreadsheet to keep track of this, since I am a moran.

      Welcome to the B5 S4 club Looks like a pretty clean example for the mileage. A coworker of mine just got rid of a hibiscus red one that had just turned over 300k and was still going strong. The mileage on this really wouldn't scare me.

      Only odd thing I noticed is that the cluster in that car doesn't seem to match the badges. Is it an early 2001 build? Either way, look forward to seeing what you do with it.
