I picked this up at the end of November but due to weather and work I havent been able to clean it and take some pics to post up.
It took me a while to find one with the grey and red combination, but it was definately worth the wait as the condition is absolutely amazing.
The pictures are a little poor as they were taken with an old point and snap camera and the light was starting to go - but you get the idea.

I picked up the wind deflector from Audi the other day, also have an ipod connector to fit and run to the arm rest. Plain black mats are also on order.

18' 5 spoke RS6's soon when I find a set of OEM ones. B7 rear lights also.
After that I think a B7 front end swap with black grill and plate infill.

The ipod adaptor is an Audi one which I used to run in my Golf. I think they are about £80 to £100 new. I will post the part number up once I have it fitted and am sure it actually works.

In regard to the red roof, I think its a bit of a marmite thing. Personally I started out wanting a black roof, but having seen the red roof thought it was a bit different and quite distinctive - I love it now.
The fact it was a brand new acoustic roof also helped the decision process!

Hey Drewbee,

I'm currently looking to buy an A4 cab and I've decided I'm going to try and get a 3.0L Auto. Can you tell me about owning such a car - fuel / auto box etc etc.. I've always driven 1.8T manual variants! eeek!

I got to be honest - I really like the whole colour combo. I do like the red roof, the fact that you have the red leather to match is all good for me :)
I looked at one with red a red roof, red bodywork and red leather and that was a bit too much red!

Hi mate,

If you are stilooking to sell your new front bumper, it looks silver in photo or is it the light grey? Where are you located and how much would you like for it?

I look forward to hearing from you.

I have the RS6's on and loving them. I was worried that the bigger whee might make it look a little high. I think the arch gap is pretty perfect bearing in mind no suspension modifications. I gave the roof a clean and waterproof with The Autoglym Cabriolet stuff and think it came up excellent.

Hi mate the roof looks good, was it easy to do with the Autoglym kit, was one kit enough for the job?

It's pretty easy. The cleaner is straight forward just spray on and scrub with the sponge provided. The water proof sealer is a bit difficult to work with. It's best to do it on a dry roof so you can see where you've applied. Also do a section at a time. The issue is it running on windows or paint as it drys and goes wax'y. It's very hard to clean off. I masked the windows but if you have a big cloth to hand to soak up drips or runs you will be fine. It's excellent once done and water just beads on the surface.

Just done my roof, my hand is aching now from squeezing the trigger. Just waiting for it to dry now. The colour seemed to look better as it was cleaned, just gotta wait now to see what it looks like when its dried.
