Not overly keen on the fronts either to be honest, but look different to the originals so they've stayed on and I actually like the darkened look of the lights all round so not really had any burning desire to change them at the moment.



    As for the kit, yes you're quite right, it's a votex kit but not sure what pipe arrangements/styles were available for these cars back in the day. I know it had the kit fitted somewhere between new and when the first owner sold the car when it was approx. 4 months old as I have the sale receipt from when the second owner bought the car back in 2003.
    See what ya mean in the dark, a very different light, and very nice indeed.

    Always liked a dark tint to a light, i would never get away with it though with me car been black, may do Alexgsi's trick though and just blackout the reverse light i think it is, the clear bit on standard rears ahahahah

    Cheers mate, yeah possibly a black tint on a black motor would look a little bit too gangster but smoking out the clear lens I reckon would look pretty decent. I've got a picture in my mind of the half smoked Mk2 Golf Gti 16v rear lights. The looked nice and subtle in the grey and red format. Have you got link/pics anywhere for this mod?

    You might as well spend a little bit more time on it and totally flush the coolant system while your changing the stat, it's only about £14 a bottle of which you will need two. Maybe I should have stated that's what I did when it took an hour.

    Yeah mate there is a drain tap next to the intercooler to empty the system. You have to loosen off the front part of the undertray in that corner to get to it, but that's no biggie.

    I prefer the top ones mate,they look so much bigger than the new ones!Maybe the spokes that go right to the edge of the wheel make themlook bigger.
    not keen on the new ones mate sorry..........Still the best A4 avant though by far.

    I actually prefer the second ones to the first. Although they look smaller due to the black lip, they just generally look better.

    @ Deano - personally I think some different wheels would do the car more justice, but if it's down to those two the second set is better, but you'd have to either paint the wheel lip, or (ideally) polish it up to match the spokes. I think that would look nice.

    Second set definitely a nicer looking wheel than the first. But you're right, the black lip does give the illusion that they're smaller.

    FOR SALE: Eibach Sportline Springs from B5 A4. £50 - PM for details.

    I can't wait! I think the difference will be mind blowing. At 175,000 I'm still running on the original se suspension, well I assume it's original as it makes me feel ill sometimes with all the pitching and rolling.
