    Hey i just got a A4 with a v6 in it. Pushes 170 hp i believe. I was just wondering if theres any things to do to make it look nice/ go faster that wont make me poor. Already has Custom exhaust. Lowered a bit, and working on getting some nice rims.

    Any pics ?? And what's engine size ??

    Have a scroll through the b5 pics thread at the top off this section for some ideas, S4 bumpers and skirts is really the best way forward but won't come cheap votex will give you a more modern look over the stock look.

    One pic, i am taking more tomorrow

    Also im having a bit of an issue, the top break light(bar one in the rear window) is staying on always, i think it may be the light switch behind the pedal or under the dash..any ideas?

    If the top brake light is on, they all should be on. They're all driven from the same switch.

    It's already been lowered a bit? Crikey, how high was it before?! :w00t:

    Post up engine code (found on sticker in spare wheel well or service manual) and people can help you out with mods etc.

    I like the Pearl White colour too. Good choice.
