    New Avant Project

    Pretty new on here (one previous post ) but planning to keep a build thread on my new avant so here goes.

    My current daily goes back at the end of March so i've bought this as my new daily





    Its a fairly clean A4 Avant B6 1.8t Sport, one previous owner and 84k on the clock. Oh and it came with a rather nice leather interior



    As with all my toys it doesn't take long for me to start messing. Found these wheels going for a good price as they need a refurb so got them bought and trial fitted them yesterday. They're 18x8.5" Mercedes fitment wheels made by Dezent. Need to source spigot rings and tapered bolts.







    Plans are:-
    Get the wheels refurbed
    Fit coilovers (although the sport suspension is already pretty low)
    Space out the rear wheels
    Get some of the marks on the body sorted
    Fit HID kit
    Double din dash conversion (already sourced the lower climate control)

    Pretty chuffed so far

    Thanks.

    The oakie is a bit of an ongoing project. Thought it would be nice to drop a 1.8t motor in it

    Yeah, but continuing with it until it sells. Trying to work out charge pipes at the mo.

    I'm going to use the money from the sale to fund the A4 mods.

    not my cup of tea, prefer something more simple looking

    Each to there own, be a bit boring if we all liked the same things.


    They came up at the right price with good tyres so i thought 'Why not'

    Bit of an update. Finally got the wheels refurbed.










    Sadly due to an imminent house move the mods to the car are going to have to stop before they even really started.

    Wheels are up for sale if anyone is interested.
