Again, correct about the fun factor of beemers (being RWD). I myself will prefer BMW over any Audi but I may pull off a great deal with this particular 3.2. Also, it was an CBU import fully loaded and my prefered color combo! So...
F355 guess the A4 3.2 should be a quattro. But still, for A4 quattro, power normally goes to front wheels and IF NECESSARY, power is sent to the back. Thats more like the cars nose stuck in a ditch/mud in the countryside.

The car will be huge fun to drive on roads! Also it will be fast on any road, snow/gravel for being quattro.
But if you are thinking of sliding sideways in to a drift, wont be great fun.[/quote]

Hey bro. Thank you for your kind words.

I asked the question about exhaust but got flamed on this forum. Lol.

My my, Taran. The car has completely changed since the last time I came here. I wish I had the dough and the permission to do all these things good to see you're enjoying the car to the fullest! Will keep an eye on this thread now.

Wow ! You have already covered 50,000 kms ! Thats really quick ! Congrats

Our 2007 320D is just nearing the 49K mark and its been one memorable experience. I just returned from Davangare to Blore (300 kms ~) after a drive today & she never fails to put me at ease with her sharp handling during lane changes and bursts of acceleration while overtaking ! Not a hint of fatigue at all !

Can this angel light thingy be installed on a 2007 model with normal halogen lights ? There are currently no angel light rings at all.

Yes you can upgrade to lci halogen headlights. They are fully compatible and will refresh the look of pre-lci.

Added 5 mm HR spacers to front wheels. Much aggressive now. Spacers were as light as paper came With extra long bolts.

Did two trips to kalka shimla byepass, opened yesterday. Excellent tarmac and twisty roads with 0 traffic and the bmw didnt surprise me at all. Did high speed turns, braking and acceleration at twisty roads. The car handled as it was supposed to handle. No drama, no tire screeching or any scary moment. It was fun.

265 rubber at the back with lowered suspension with a stiff setting did the job. There was no body roll very prcise hard steering and couple of g forces acting on my body. Im a happy man.

Spent the whole day with Arush. What a guy. He just loves cars. The workshop was awesome. 2xMitsubishi Gto, hummer h2, lancers, jeeps, civics, bimmers. Hey set me up with a nice exhaust. Sounds just like in this video. Dual black 4.0" tips at the end.
