    Hi there peeps :)

    As title says really. Should be picking up an A4 2.6 auto between Christmas and new year. Got it for a good price (well I thought it was) and I need to sell my other car to maybe fund some mods for it :w00t:

    Any advice on owning an Audi would greatly appreciated.

    Thank you :anbet:

    The car is a 4Dr Saloon 2.6 SE Auto. What could I do with it at a reasonable price? ie looks and performance.

    And what's all this B5 and B6 bits? I really haven't got a clue as to what's what with Audi's :( What would my car be/have?

    Cheers :respekt:

    So would parts from other B series Audi's fit the B5 that I have or are the cars limited to to its own B number?

    If other B parts can be fitted what areas can be done?
    eg: B6/7 head lights on a B5.

    Cheers.

    Also is there anyone around the area I am in (March, Cambs)?

    So basically B5 parts will fit B5 cars and nothing else will fit it?
