Did you bake the headlights, or use a heat gun? I used a heat gun with my extra set of lights i had (was getting nowhere with the oven since the glue on the b5 housing is different) and it was just so time consuming to slowly pry that plastic up bit by bit. It was a real b!tch

word dude. i have such an itch to mod. you B5 is as is though

but ifyou had a stance like that black one up there with stretched tires on those ch's. DAMN!


btw for anyone that didnt know, i bought the car from a friends friend and it had a blown motor (piston shot through the block) so right now the motor is pulled out of the car.

the reason im not in a rush to get it back together is i want to do preventative maintenance + some mods while the engine is out.

Thanks man. I still gotta put on my spacers though that I picked up a couple weeks back. I'm just waiting to pick up a stud kit for it. That black one is a little too much for me... but if I were to go that aggressive, you'd see me doing an oem rs4 widebody conversion

DUDE I've been wondering how you got a B5 for less than $8k, that makes a lot more sense. Haha
Mad props for taking something that was not getting used and making it into something that I'm sure will be epic.

word b6.


i think im gonan take the whole car to a different level. im tired of fukin around with this 1.8t motor.

im thinking more along the lines of b5 S4 motor + WB. might start on that project monday. bring the car back to my house, do my own welding + prep work+ motor work.

im assuming itll take 8 months- a year, but itll be worth it in the end.

Nah, I got that pic off a UK based forum, don't remember the guy's username, but you might to check this dudes thread out....

http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...ighlight=built

Also, here's a link to the recent record breaking 227 mph b7 a4. In the article it says it's a twin turboed 3.0L V6, but it actually started out as 2.7TT bored out from B5 RS4
