Does anyone know this car?

I quite like the look of this (not sure on the tints, but could remove those)
Just wondered if anyone knew the car or can see any glaringly obvious issues?

not my cup of tea (no offense ) but nicely modified if you like that sort of thing - certainly a lot better then most of the other modded e90s ive seen (again, my opinion)

The thing is, its not really that modified if you took off the tints and changed the wheel colour back to silver. I love the rear bumper and spoiler!

I do have my eye on another standard blue saloon, but got ring in the morning to see if its still available.
Ive got my fingers crossed because it looks very tidy and is local

I rang the bloke with the one I first posted in this thread and he said it was as good as sold to someone. He said it had broken down this evening though with a suspected alternator, needed 2 front tyres and ideally the front bumper sprayed due to stone chips.

However, I also spotted the red one the other day and have been chatting to the owner and will probably be putting a deposit on it with viewing at the weekend

To get 500-520 out of a B5 RS4 its a case of:

Injectors
Fuel pump
Upgraded oil cooler
3" downpipes
Decent stainless exhaust
Remap

I was posting on there earlier this year, and reading a lot about the B5 as I'd love one and was going to buy one this year around this time (misano BTW if there was one about) but I got a conservatory instead, it's great being married !

The new motor looks nice, gotta love red . Hope you enjoy it from Sunday onwards. I'll bet you'll miss that B5 though.

I will miss the B5 but also I'm happy to move on.
5 Audi's in a row and its time for a total change of scenery!
In my 24 years of driving I've never owned a BMW, and always wanted one, so I'm REALLY looking forward to it

I will be doing some mods, nothing too extreme, anyone who knows me will know I'm more into subtle finishing touches. To me, that is what makes all the difference.

I will get a build/owners thread started and get some photos up as soon as I can.
Sunday cannot come soon enough!!
