    Shiny is over rated :D It's my daily workdrive car so I don't have time or motivation clean it every night after work.

    I had light problems with fiting it on because I didn't have proper rs4 bumper holder at that time.
    So i did measuring on air and it wasn't that precise. It's still a bit in wrong size but with some 'stretching' it sits pretty good after all.
    Next time I know how it's done better. ;)

    About 3 feet from standard for a TDi!

    TBH I just built up the FKs so that the springs were under tension and then installed on the car - the rears have stayed as they were, and I raised the front by 25 threads(!) as it was scraping on lock. It now only scrapes if it's compressed under lock (ie hammering around a lumpy mini roundabout).

    I'll probably raise it a little more when I refresh the front arms as it's still a little too low for my taste, but the C arms are so fecked it may raise a few mm anyway when they are replaced!

    @diffas - it's very rare that mine looks as clean as it appears in the photos, a healthy covering of muck hides the scratches and corrosion pimples! :blush:

    Thanks, Glade it has given you the solution to your door card problem,

    The wheels are not TT Comps, same design just et35 and 5x112 instead of 5x100 so not as common as TT, they came off Audi A6 4.2 C5

    That is a seriously hot car mate! I am seriously considering a B5 when my B6 dies, which is inevitable with my wife driving it more than I do now. I am loving them wheels!!

    Here's mine:

    SE 2.4 V6 in Santorin Blue Pearl. 154k on the clock and the interior smells of Vanillaroma Magic Tree's!

    [​IMG]

    Engine and gear box are sweet, sounds quite nice although maybe a bit too quiet but I'm happy for now.

    Had new discs, pads, bearings and ABS sensors all round less than 2000 miles ago.

    So far I have:

    * Fixed the glove box light. Thought the bulb was blown, but it just wasn't connected to the loom. Also sort out the badly fitted glove box at the same time.
    * Fitted Bosch AeroTwin flat wiper blades
    * Fitted a carbon coated pollen filter as the air flow was ****, so expected the old one to be past it, perfect now.
    * Fitted a new fuel filter.
    * Replaced the power steering fluid.
    * Bought 5w40 oil, a gen. oil filter, sump plugs, spark plugs, HT leads and coolant temp sensor all ready to go in/on.

    What I need to do:

    * Remove both front seats in the hope of sorting out the air bag light. Also f' knows what's living under there so a hoovering is required.
    * Sort out the instrument display as it has 'cluster pox'
    * Replace both registration plates as they look as old as the car and let it down cosmetically.
    * Check the plenum chamber drainage holes
    * Paint the aerial as it's currently a chavvy silver. Going satin black.
    * Get the original stereo recoded
    * Buy 3 litres of Motul Gear 300 oil for a gearbox oil change.
    * Possibly debadge it.
    * Possibly put coilovers on it.

    It's got a mostly full service history and nearly all the old MOT's, even the old'ns that used to be on A5's pieces of paper! Nostalgia.

    I found an invoice from the Audi dealer dated 2002 for £1800 that included a new clutch kit, flywheel rear brake calipers, discs and pads. Shocking tbh.

    Dry joint under the seats.

    The vag-com will reset the light, but without fixing the problem it's highly likely to just come back on again.

    They look the dogs ******** mate ! Had a set of rial daytona race split rims (sold them a few weeks ago) and i regret it ever since. I have just bought a set of a8 parabols (aka fat fives !) and i will just keep them as summer wheels for the b5 quattro. For the allroad i have the stock 17" Ronal split rims for the winter and 18" ABT sportysline for the summer...just bought another set as i could not been bothered to refurbish the set i allready had !

    Tidy Avant mate. If I were you I would get rid of those headlight "brows". Make it look much better! So is this your run-around as I'm taking it you have a scooby too?

    No s4 kit there. Looks kind of like the votex kit but deeper at the front anyway.

    Finally got round to getting a pic of the car after fitting new 17" wheels and some FK springs :photo:

    Looks a whole lot better than before, both in lack of corrosion on wheels and the car sitting level (and a bit lower) :arco:

    Before;

    [​IMG]

    After;

    [​IMG]

    If you're wondering what the white stuff below the rear door is, it's soap suds from the jet wash that I didn't rinse off properly :keule:

    Got plans for it, just need to sell my Escort (in signature) so I can fund them :banghead:

    I will be after decent black head lights and black led (maybe) tail lights and a lovely set of chrome tipped deep dish alloys. 18 or 19" depends on what I can afford. oh and a set of coil overs.
    Then maybe an ECU check up :ninja: lol

    Bored in work so thought i'd pop out and take some pics of the car.
    its a bit dirty from the past week commuting, so will have to clean it again and take some better pics.
    Nothing great but worth sharing.
