let me know what you guys think... from the way i see things, the back needs to go a tad bit lower to match the front, obviously the lowers will be repainted soon, exhaust needs some polishin, and i need corners!!! if you have any clear corners you wanna get rid of let me know. other wise enjoy the pic's guys and give me some feedback.

thanks, and enjoy.

Looks great! I like the fogs, they look much better than the originals IMO.
You might want to loose the Audi wheel centercaps though. :thumbup:

Super Duper :thumbup: , Looks Nice, better in person. Did you Contract the three fat [email protected]*ches to lower the back? I think it looks fine the way it is now. You've seen my rake . so I would leave it the way it is. Buts thats my opinion.

What year is that?? I like the wheels, but not the caps. The tires look pretty nice too. I don't think you need to go any lower. What I really like are the fog lights. How, where, did you get them??? I would LOVE to get some fogs on my 99, but I didn't think it was possible without custom fabrication. Did you hook them up through a euroswitch??

my car is a '98 equipped with the ever so desired and potent AEB head :lol: . i like the caps so they're stayin like that...haha... and ya i plan on de-badging the rear veedub sign too :D .

as for the fog lights i told another cb5'er the situation. i have a friend up in Atlanta ( i live in miami) and he is a US rep for Hella. they sent him a few sets of these lights for fitment and that sort of thing. he asked me to try 'em out, and so i did. they turned out great! they fit perfect and work pretty well. problem is many people are thinking these are fog lights. these are not foglights, they are DTRL's (day time running lights). though i plan on changing that soon :D . i wanna see if i put a higher wattage bulb in there and run an external switch to them so i can use them as fogs. fitment was a breeze. only modifications needed were to cut ur stock grills in order for the replacement grills the kit comes with to fit and drill two holes (one on either side of the actual bumper cover for each light) goes on in about 3 hours (counting countless cans of "brisk" hahaha :lol: ). they look good and even better cause i got them free solely for fitment purposes and all that. i know a few guys on here are gettin them thru ebay and stuff. my tip is this, if you get 'em, when you install 'em take ur time. make sure you cut right and drill right, its not rocket science, but you dont wanna have to spend double and buy another bumper cover!

if you would like some pic's of the install and the cuttin i had to do for install on the lights PM me with an emial add. and ill shoop 'em ur way.

Looks great. I love the wheels! :thumbup:
Have you had any rubbing inside your wheel wells with the wider tires?
How's the ride with the H&R sport springs and Bilstein sport shocks compared to stock?

No rubbing unless you hit a serious SERIOUS pot hole. as far as the ride with the suspension set up i have, its great. its no where near as soft and smooth as stock, obviously. but i mean you cant expect to drop the car and not have a harsher ride. it is more of an aggresive feeling. but not as aggresive as coilovers or such. i have no complaits at all!

Thanks for the insite on the drop.
Do you mind if I ask where you got your replicas and how much $$$.
I'm looking to do something similar but as afraid that the RS4's are out of my reach.

Are they really an offset of 30mm and not 35mm?
What size tire do you have?
I was told that offset wouldn't work on a B5.5.
