    The jurys out on tints - never been keen but some of the pics ive seen on forum are slightly swaying my decision - we shall see. I agree mods for Cab are hard to come by.

    i find the front end on the cab a bit bland, personaly i would like the s-line lower valance from a saloon but as normal it doesnt fit.

    also the silver trim in the cockpit would be great but it never comes up for sale for a cab and its silly money new.

    My opinion is mine. Your car and money are yours. Agreed. What I mean is that IMHO many mods I see in the South don't work.

    Enjoy 08. Cheers

    merry Xmas All.
    I see you all have started thinking how big a hole you going to Burn in your Trousers next year already!!!.....

    well If I dont upgrade to a S4/S-line Cab then my hole is gonna be a small one - I hope..

    1.Get round to fitting my Aero Wiper Kit
    2.Re-respray my Plastic fog Covers (which for some reason looked like I thrown acid over them)
    3.Uprated Disc/Pads all round..
    ......erm... .....
    4.New air Freshener (a great Mod at that)
    5.ah yeah.....New Wheels I reckon (if I still have it in the summer)
    - Dont like to roam round in the same shoes for too long, I get bored.

    So my definition of a small hole may be bigger than we all anticipate ..Damn..

    I might be back yet,Few more brandys will get the Brain working again.

    There are many mods i see that i dont like,not many on Audi's though except for A8 alloys.
    Good job we all have different tastes or there wouldnt be cars like J7USS's A4 except for them bloody silver foglight covers.

    I sold the beemer,oh and it looked better than an A4,handled better,braked better,was faster and sounded loads better.
    I took a JEEP as a px,i was going to sell it on but i quite like it and ive already done some modding.
    Addco front and rear roll bars,20" Antera's,new clear headlights,sidelights and indicators,stainless exhaust,the CAI off the 330(sounds awesome on the 4.0)and some tints.
    Waiting for my H&R springs,bilstein's shocks,chrome grill and new brakes from over the pond,then maybe leave it like that for abit.

    Heres a picture of the big fat yank.
    When i got it.....

    And here it is a couple of weeks later....

    Not very good at first but does now ive got the Addco ARB's,it will go round corners alot faster when my new suspension arrives from America.

    It is a thirsty bugger,i'm averaging 9.8mpg
    I was shocked how far i cant get on a full tank(90) but it is fun and the noise it makes is even better than my old beemer.
    It actually works out quite well as my 330 would depreciate about 200 per month so if i spend 200 per month on fuel its free motoring.

    Mods I have planned so far...

    Entire interior swap from tan to black
    Heated power non-sport leather swapped to black S-Line heated manual fabric seats, and then getting them retrimmed in black leather.
    Brushed aluminum trim to replace the crappy wood (Oh, and I'm a Yank. Notice there's only 1 i in aluminum? :P )
    S4 front, unless I can find a good deal on a Caractere or maybe a Deval
    18" BBS CHs sitting in my spare bedroom refinished and fitted
    Coilovers, probably Koni or Stasis Streetsport
    Yellow fogs
    DTM alcantara shift knob
    RS4 Ebrake handle
    B7 S-Line multifunction steering wheel (I have the last three sitting in my house. Just waiting for a few steering wheel parts and holding off till I do the full interior swap)
    E-code Bi-Xenons to replace my US chrome housing headlights
    Eisenmann exhaust
    Cold air intake
    Some type of trunk spoiler and a splitter for the S4 front
    Tinted windows
    And hopefully a sweet whole car vinyl wrap before I take it on the Modball Rally in June!

    55c a gallon? I wish. But yeah, I'm here in England, so things aren't quite as cheap. I ship a lot of stuff in from Germany, and buy a lot from the US too, but finding the seats and a place to get them reupholstered is becoming a PITA. Well, I should say a place to get them reupholstered that doesn't want my left arm as a downpayment. Just picked up a B7 DTM shift knob too. Guess I'll sell the S-Line when the DTM get's here.

    Well I was thinking about this myself. MODS for 2008.

    So far I have had a REVO, 19inch alloys, Eibach suspension and a new DAB stereo put in my Audi A4 TDI. 2008 Mods as follows providing I can persuade the wife to let me part with more cash:

    1) Body Kit. Rieger looks great but I also like the Caractere which is around 1600 quid for the kit so quite pricey.

    2) Interior trim, maybe the carbon look or the aluminion again quite pricey

    3) A Millitek exhaust system.

    4) Air Filter possibly green.

    I have a service due in 1k miles and the car possibly needs a new clutch and flywheel the dealer said as there is a juddering (not a misfire) on idle which could be down to misalignment of the flywheel. The clutch isn't slipping but the biting point is quite high. Hopefully my years warrantly that runs out in August will cover this. So I have to part with cash for this first. LOL

    For the interior trim, I have a set of aluminum ( US spelling :P ) trim that I am getting with the seats I bought, if I can ever get ahold of the guy. I can use all the parts except the two dashboard pieces, so I might just buy another set altogether. What do the aluminum sets go for usually? Only had my Audi for about 10 months, so I'm still exploring the market for stuff. Oh, and it's brushed aluminum, not the fishscale stuff. It sucks that you guys can't get the prices we have in the states. I was looking at getting a Deval bumper and Eurogear carbon fiber hood (bonnet?) for mine, but shipping on the bumper would be 150 quid, and that's to the nearest airport. Same for the hood. Plus the new Rieger kit looks like crap to me. I like the old RS4 one.New one is too busy.

    But just to let everyone know, I can get some things shipped here rather cheaply, due to being in the US military, and having a US post office on base. Maybe once everyone get's to know me I can help some of you out on getting stuff from the states.

    I hear the Sline/S4 Door Blades are pretty Cheap over there. Would you be so kind to find out please mate?Im sure there will be a drink in it for you and Im guessing there would be a few others on here that would have sets too....

    I'll get back to you guys. I don't want to set this up like I'm a vendor or anything. I wouldn't be making any cash at all, just so the mods know. It would be just for convenience for you guys.
