Hi guys!! I swapped my Volvo 850 to a Audi A4 -96 that was in pretty bad shape (Atleast the looks of the car), And i have started to fix it. The engine and gearbox works great and i drive it daily. Here are some pics of the condition of the car when i first picked it up, i have started to fix it, and i got new front quarters that i have painted and mounted but i havent taken any new pics yet, they will come soon. All parts that i will paint will be done professionally and i have found the exact color for the car.

Here are the plans i got for it:

* 18" rims ,Maybe RS4 rims, or some other nice rims.

* Coilovers or lowering springs, probebly coils, since i already have it, but havent mounted them yet.

* Facelift front and rear lights (came after -97)

* Painting front, rear and side lips in the same colour as the car.

* Painting the mirror plastic parts same colour as the car.

* New grill without logo.

* white sidemarkers instead of those ugly orange ones.

* Probebly some more stuff.






May God have mercy upon my enemies, because i wont.

So, small update. The new front quarters are installed and i have fixed all the rust etc. And the front lip / Side skirts are now painted, New 17" rims witch i got from my boss for free, who says no to that? :) Also removed those ugly lights. Its dirty in the pic, im getting it washed and polished next week. But yea, as u can see, its looking better and better.

Nice! My grandfather has avant version of this car, so im quite familiar with it. He has default 1.8. Sad that the rim caps are missing. If these rims had lip, they'd be perfect. I like square'ish rims, not with round spokes. Color looks totally diffrent comparing the last picture with the ones in the first post.
Could you perhaps post some pictures of the interior?

# robban_9000 : Yeah, its winter right now, but i bought em anyways, will save them until next summer.

Why not have 2 sets of four wheel with two types of tyres: one that has winter tyres and a another one with summer tyres on. Then you can enjoy driving with the same model of rims on both times of the years, except that it is with just different tyres on.

Problem solved!
In need of fixing small things on mods? You´re welcome!
