I'm pretty new to the A4 B5 forum here on Vortex, even if i have owned this car for the last 3 year - I posted 1 picture in another thread, an someone wanted to see more, so here goes!
You will probably find my written language pretty bad - but im from Denmark so bare with me

Hope you like the car - if not i will have to take on the flamesuit, but please leave a comment http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Here it is - together with my other car, an 1983 VW Golf LX


This is how it looked when i took it home - pretty boring - the mirrors are dark blue because original mirrors an some 18 inch wheels had been stolen while standing at the dealer:

The interior was original but pretty nice, only the shiftknob was really worn. Later changed that to something from a Passat 3BG that was modded to fit.

Really fast after i bought these RH ZW1 8x17" wheels - wanted that model an they came at a good price used but in good condition:

Some month later this happend - came to close to another car with a towhook on



My insurance paid the repair - I work at a VW/Audi dealership, therefore the insurance money was used on original S4 parts. Bumper, bumperbrackets, fibrefront setup, radiator, fan, headlight, frontfenders was changed with new parts. The hood was straightened an the parts where painted... Actually not that bad to smash the car

After that i have only done detail work on the car basically ...
But this is how the car looks now:



VW/Audi meeting in Schafflund Germany this summer:

One of my small mods that i really like - The turnsignal bulps are from a Volkswagen Lupo 3L. They give the "blue" mirror effect in the headlight, even if the light up orange as the stock ones:


The plastic cover in the right side of the enginebay is originally made for a Passat 3B VR5. The top of the manifold is polished but it is hard to see here:

Love these wheels. I still regret passing on a set when I first got my car. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

That Passat cover looks great, and so does the car.
Nice to see someone else from the North on the forum.

Re: The Red A4 B5 ... (VReihenmotor6)

Grass is always greener, isn't it? I almost set out to put climatronic in my corrado because I wanted it so badly, after reading about the conversion. It woulda been a pain. Luckily I bought an audi though so I didn't need to. Unlike you I abhor having to adjust dials and slides in my car now, so I'm very happy with the automatic functions.

yea, i agree on climatronic. i like just setting a temperature and calling it a day.
as for the car....very nice what youve done to it!
i actually kind of like the wheels in the second photo, for some reason.
and the passat engine cover is pretty cool! although I just took the engine cover off of the block, that is pretty neat. i will add it to the OEM+ thread.

Re: (A4_ohboy!!)

The Roskilde Festival is not just rock - They have all kinds of music! They have around 75000 guest every year, and most of them get drunk as hell!

Only problem this year was historically bad weather with really heavy rain for almost a week. This is most of the scenery seen from above - all the small dots are tents on some of the many camping areas.

And this is the result of the rain:

Rubberboots where the highest fashion this year ..


Well - that was offtopic:

The mirrors are In-Pro chrome covers, they are easy to mount and good quality. I also have a set of original covers painted red to match the car.

Re: (Enur)

Sunday i picked up a "new" interior for the car ... An almost complete RS4 2001 Recaro leather interior. Missing a doarboard, but the rest is in pretty good condition. No damage to the leather.
I'm really looking forward to having this fitted in the car. Will have to do some customizing to make it fit, but i think it will be good.

The front seat look like these, but has the RS4 text pressed in the leather.

The set also included rear seats, the front armrest with leather as well as the doarboards (- 1) with Bose speakers.
