Default To get ready for next months probable return of the A4...



I'm starting to compile a to-do list of mods... for newer folks, it's a 99.5 Silver A4 1.8TQM, already modded with K04, Stage 3 Clutch/Flywheel, S4/RS4 front bumper.

This won't be something I'll be finished with for sometime, but my 5 years on AW have given me a lot of knowledge on do's and dont's of modding. I'll also hopefully be using the various wholesale and internal connections I have to get better prices on the parts/labor. Just wanted to get this down on paper so I don't have to keep going over them in my head... I'll keep adding and modding this list as time goes on and I learn more about which direction I want to head in with this car. If you think of something I'm leaving out, let me know...

R.

P.S. Preliminary plans call for me to keep the Audi 90 as a daily commuter car, but if need be I can always sell if for some extra mod money.
