    Hi,


    Not been on here long, but have been looking at other A4 Avants and seeing what other people can do to them made me want to start doing similar things to mine!


    Starting this thread to keep a track/blog of all the mods and for advice/opinions on where to go next!


    The car is a 1.8T A4 avant Quattro 190 sline. Full leather, cruise, xenons as standard.


    Haven't got any photos of the car as standard, but took a few today after a good clean!


    At the moment all i have done is have the rear windows tinted, and rebadged the rear. I've started trying to tidy up the interior first, and fix the leak in the passenger footwell! although i have hopefully resolved that now!


    anyway, here are a few photos from today.

    I've got a set of H&R Lowering springs to be fitted next, and then i can decide on what spacers i want, i was thinking 10mm all round, would this be enough to bring the wheel out to the edge of the arches? I'm running the standard et43 17x7J 5 Spoke Wheels with 235/45 Tyres. If anyone has any advice on that, i would appreciate it! below is a photo of the current wheel set up.

    Also on the to fit list is the new stereo, which will get rid of the annoying standard audi one that kept making noises like it was chewing the CD!


    Other than the springs i will also be blacking the chrome surround on the front grill.


    Next on the list is a Remap, potentially some new alloys(if i can find Speedlines/reps cheap enough, anyone know of any??)


    Don't have a massive budget, but do have a list as long as my arm of things to do!


    Thanks for reading, Sorry for the essay!

    Very nice, though I would say that as I have a very similar car to you. I hope to get some pics of mine up soon and will be following this thread with interest

    Forgot to mention the pressed plates, think they really suit the car.

    Had a lot of maintenance work done before,I started anything else, pollen and air filter, fresh oil, new gearbox mount as that broke whilst driving over a cattle grid:( also new spark plugs and had to get a little plastic valve so the car didn't run rich.

    Leak has now been resolved after changing the pollen filter tray, and unblocking the condensation pipe.

    Found a set of wheels I really like so I'm hoping to grab those whilst I still can!

    been a couple of weeks since anything has happened. finally got the interior of the car back together in one piece! got rid of the leak and fitted the new stereo! which is nice and tidy!

    Getting the cam belt done soon, which is the last of the service type of things to be done, then on to remaps and upgrades!

    ordered my new wheels as well which is good, see pictures attached. gonna order some tyres tonight so they might be on the car at some point in the very near future, along with some lowering springs!

    also blacked out the chrome grill and dewipered the boot. happy days.

    Long time since an update.

    New wheels now on. Coil overs going on this weekend. Will get pictures once the coilies are on!

    Blacked out the chrome window surround as well which I think looks much better.

    Will be getting some hub spacers then I might be happy with the outside.

    This is with new wheels and lowering springs and B5 perches upfront. springs and perches will be for sale once i have the coil overs fitted.

    they are H&R 35mm drop springs.
