A mate had one of these and my favourite mod that he did was to add a lower boot 'spoiler'

Like this one...

Unfortunately not, the stud pattern is different and I dont want to run adaptors on this car if avoidable.

The wheels are for sale, think the guy who has the passat now may be taking them.

Thanks man I would love a B5 S4 I'm tempted to just go a nice bold silver to be honest. I always sem to have a sligh regret when refurbishing wheels a different colour.

Same delima when having my MK1 Leon FR+ wheels done. Noone knows the paint code. Tried to find something similar and not too dark. Ended up drawing inspiration from Volvo V60 Polestar. Matt Light Grey the colour is. Its a nice balance between silver and typical anthracite.

Nice car. I have a 4Motion V6 4dr and a GT TDI 3dr both in indigo blue. Would like to see what mine would look like with a good polish

Lovely car chum. The interior mods sound like a good plan.

As regards the wheels, I'd personally go for a nice oem looking silver. Silver wheels on a dark car really lift the whole appearance of it.

Anyhoo - subscribed for your updates chum.

I hope it helps the paintwork but it's got some scratches etc so many look for replacement panels.

Nice golf bud plus it's got the good engine the AGU is the one to have due to the big valves head and stronger internals! Get a k04 on it of a 225 TT or Cupra R and it will fly
Here's my old one





Oh and I like black wheels so my votes for refurbing them black

Yeah I have read up that the AGU is the better block to have.

Will look at a K04 once stage 1 is complete for sure.

At the moment I want to sort out some vacuum issues and simplify that lot and service the car. Can't wait to get stuck in.
