    I'm just looking for something to make the car a bit more aggressive. Nothing wild. Perhaps just a lip spoiler?

    They probably don't make anything ricer-like for the A4 anyway.

    Trust me...they DO make ricer kits for the A4. Anyway, I think a lip spoiler looks very classy on the new A4. Rieger also makes some good kits. Not ricey IMO.

    Where can I find them?

    And it's not the new A4...it's the B5 chassis.

    You can check out quite a few kits at http://www.autobahnx.com/home

    I'd go for the Reiger, or obviously the Oettinger. All depends on what area you live in, and how original you want to be.


    PS - I'd go with suspension & brake mods first

    Definitely.

    A nice kit would look :ugh: with my stock 15 inchers and stock ride height. Gonna hook it up with some nice 17s, good susp. setup, and a chip before I go for the kit. :)

    Good man :bigthumb:

    www.audiworld.com if you haven't already been there.

    As for wheels, its all your choice but when it comes to suspension there are two choices which the majority pick between - Eibach Pro-Kit System or H&R Sport Springs w/ Bilstein Sport Shocks. Read up and self-educate, glad to see you doing good things to the A4.

    Glad you approve. After knowing people in the rice scene, I don't want to have anything to do with it.

    I've been to Audiworld a few times, as well as VWVortex. I could certainly use a well-written FAQ about mods, however.

    A lot of A4/S4 owners buy the BMW E46 M3 trunk lip for the trunk, it fits perfectly and looks great. Let me see if I can find a picture for you...
