    Hi All, Im Dan (new member) from Sheffield...

    Just picked up a very tidy a4 1.8t:

    1998 - S
    70K
    FSH
    Insurance Cat D - needed 2 doors on drivers side, now fixed, after I picked up 2 in same colour from manchester. :icon_thumright: .
    Paid £915 for the car, £80 for the doors.. sold a front electric window motor for £40, so the car owes me £955 for now, heres a couple of pics..

    Anyways, after driving it I loved it so much I decided to look for a group to join, and it's nice to see a bunch of members like this, using tasteful mods on the a4, not max power type rubbish!

    The cars standard for now, Im hoping for a remap, bigger turbo, decat full stainless, 18or19s rs8 style wheels.

    It drives very well at present, has just flown through the mot.. And the interior is like new! Thanks for looking
    :)

    Hi Kev. Believe it or not I was torn between BMW VW and Audi, I did nearlly buy a 328, definately wanted a german build either way..
    I knew absolutuley nothing about Audi before reading this forum, and when I was waiting for delivery of my a4, I had my fingers crossed it might be quattro, but it wasn't meant to be!
    Ill probably keep this for a year then get the S4, insurance would be a little too much now, being 23.

    Ive always had Vauxhalls in the past, I had a 190bhp Corsa GSI 2.016v before I nearlly killed myself in it!
    I break vauxhalls for spare parts by the way.. And have loads of spares for the astra mk4 incase anyone knows someone who needs anything.

    hi mate,

    Used to have a e30 m3 myself, stripped out and caged for track days, also a m44 engined supercharged e36.

    Got almost identicle a4 as yours, mine bought off sister for 500 notes with snapped cambelt last year as a cheap run around. That was over £6k ago! Got the bug now.

    Sounds like a top motor you have there, what bhp is the a4 pushing out now?

    :icon_thumright: Yeah Im chuffed with it, because I only bought it from pictures without viewing, and when it turnedup it was much better than I thought it would be for 10 year old! + when I took it for the MOT and it went up on the ramps, I had chance to check the underside out, and its had all new links and ball joints on front suspension, a common problem apparantly... As you will know! and its been under sealed from new.

    Love the front mount on yours, and the new brakes..
    Im toying with the Idea of having Black Multispoke wheels now, with big callipers and discs.. Im going for something different with the calipper paint, just to be origional.. either Illuminus yellow, or illuminus green,or between sky and royal blue, with matching intercooler hoses either way... what do you think? :eyebrows:

    The yellow may be cool like the porsche calipers. Will get grubby very fast though.

    Cheers for the comment on my car also mate.

    Great buy, welcome aboard.

    @ ABOO: I'd hold out for a quattro model.
