    Hi glossy, can't quite make out which model A4 you have in your avatar, B5 is it? You might want to make the same post in the B5 A4 section, or I could move this one for a better response.

    Mate its your car, your decision.....If it were mine I would de-badge her and get a Milltek on it (judging from the pics its a standard exhaust).

    Hi mate and welcome, depends really on wot route you wanna go and cost you can incur??? Keep it standard looking, but clean it right up with lots of small detailed changes.....or some nice body mods with an unusual set of wheels. Have a look at wot other people are doing with theirs, give u some ideas. Oh, and get some pics up, love Kingfisher blue, wot i was originally looking for myself!;)

    Wouldn't bother with a Milltek for a TDi.

    RS4 grille does look much better than stock. Is yours facelift?

    Lip spoilers suit the B5 saloon very well.

    Agreed, and don't go throwing half of Halfords at it for the sake of it.

    Less is more.

    Know when to stop.

    Your post is too vague,

    What do you want? (power?handling?looks?show standard?) and in what order and what is your budget/long term aim/how long planning to keep the car etc

    If you have lowered with springs only then good shocks would be first move, if done them then brakes.

    Most fun is gained from the handling.

    Bodywise, looks like your cars a facelift so lights are sorted, definately s4 or rs4 grill, s4 rear and sides and then however much your willing to spend on rest.

    You will need a very big sledge hammer to shoehorn one of them twin turbo v8 tdi engines in the bay of an b5 a4 ! Its pretty tight in the a8 bay from the factory...and the auto gearbox will make it a formula one style 1 middle mounted front seater ! Even the 3.0Tdi its a strugle to fit snugly ... but all that torque...

    thanks for all the posts... was thinkin rs4 grille, colour coding bumpers and hid lights. Wondering too could i get hid lights for my fogs?
    i plan on keeping the car for a long time. I'm undecided too on the exhaust too as i don't want it sounding like a tractor. will it?
    also at this moment and time a new engine would be too expensive but woould keep it in mind for future.
    s4 rear and sides too anyone have any pictures? please.

    RS4 grill, lip spoiler on the boot lid.
    S4 mirror shells?
    Custom exhaust (not PowerFlow)
    Remap

    The options are pretty endless.

    Nice choice on rims, not that I'm biased or anything :racer:

    Its not particularly easy to get the required extra fuel into the engine on a derv though. You'd probably end up injecting nitrous and LPG or something similar.
