Hello!

This is the opposite to my post over on quattroworld. Picked up my 335 a couple months ago, but sent my old car away today.

I have had my B5 S4 avant for the last 7 years. At this point, she has 143k miles, but is exactly where I wanted the car to be as far as modifications go. A good bit faster than my JB4'd 335, a more damped ride, and as utilitarian as it gets. That being said, it's been nice to move on to a car that is significantly newer, with a lot of modern amenities. I sent the S4 off today to a buyer back on the east coast. Here are a couple shots of the old/new rides, and the prior-to-loading shot.

Yeah- the thing I'm struggling with is that the e90/e92 is way too common where I live (i've been driving 4 abreast in regular commute traffic with e92s on a couple occasions). Thus, I'm already modding away....

so far, just:
- JB4
- UUC shift knob
- Black kidney grills
- debadge
- body-color side markers
- black/white steeringwheel roundel
- LED angel eyes

In short order, I'll get spacers, an exhaust, intake, and switch to black/white roundels all around. I'm also thinking about wrapping the trim-- the aluminum is awesome looking but way too prone to damage.
