Hey guys/gals,
I just acquired this 1999 A4 1.8T Quattro, it has 81,100 miles and it feels very solid. The wheels on it right now are going to be dedicated to winter only!!

Future plans are: (other than the usual tune-up and mechanical issues)
1- cosmetics(dings and scratches)
2- wheels + tires(17")
3- Bilsteins sports
4- headlights(newer style)
5- fog lights
6- ECU chip
And that is all!




Feel free to leave positive comments!

Re: (92JETTGL)

Hey guys,
My radio is in safe mode

Is there a way without taking it out for the serial #s to make it play again?
I don't have the owners manual and I don't have the tool to get it out,
Just checked ebay for those keys/tools and bought a set!
Thank you!

try putting the key in the ignition and leaving it in the "ON" position for about 2 hours. if that doesnt do it the dealer can do it.

Re: FV-QR (92JETTGL)

Quick question,
How do I get my information screen on the speedometer to say outside temperature or whatever. The screen only says OK when you start the car then nothing! Like I said before, I don't have manuals for this car.
Thanks.

seems like it is just turned off. on the stalk on the right of the steering wheel (windshield washer stalk) there should be a small button on the bottom, press it.

Re: FV-QR (92JETTGL)

Gentleman,
I just got my fog lights, but the PO installed a bumper from a non fog light car, my problem is, I can't find the fog light plastic trims to install them. My A4 has the fog light switches front and rear.
Where could I source those plastic trims?

Thank you.
Update: I do have fogs built in the headlamps
So now , I have a set of foglights from what I think is a v6 A4. What to do?
