Pre-facelift can upgrade to newer clear tails/S4 tails..
Same goes for Headlights
Stubby Mirror on passenger side seems to be popular..

here is a picture of an rs4 interior:

and vagparts.com can get all 4 door handles for about $120 shipped, and the e-brake button has to be purchased with the entire e-brake assembly and that is about $60+shipping. its not listed on their site, so send them an email

Re: B5 A4 OEMplus Modifications (geoff16vII)

out of curiosity, what paint do you guys think would match CLOSEST to that rs4 interior finish on the handles. i mean, if i can save like 200 it doesnt have to be bang on, know whay i mean?

Re: B5 A4 OEMplus Modifications (geoff16vII)

well i thought about paint, and i think krylon ultra flat black would work, but my reason for wanting the real deal is that it is something you touch every time you open the door and it might chip off.
and yes it is pricey, but it isnt quite as expensive as i expected.

Re: B5 A4 OEMplus Modifications (verb.move)

i think im going to try to paint it. ill post up a DIY if i do. worst case, it gets chipped and i repaint it, or i totally **** it up and then i have to replace them with stock handles or the RS4 ones.
win, win, win
