As some of you may have seen, I just picked up my 200 and have already come up with a pretty awesome brake upgrade to the UFO rotors. Anyways, the car was bone stock with ~220k miles and was in decent shape when I picked it up (except the brakes).

As far as the body goes, its pretty mint. Couple dings here and there and the paint is also pretty decent. It was a bit faded but a little tlc (claybar and a cleaner wax) made it look a lot better. I used some black shoe polish on the black moldings which brought them back like new. Applied some tint to the tail lights and that's where it sits.

Also borrowed my BBS CH's from my S4.

A few pics:

looks like they've been painted/tinted. I sprayed some of that nightshade or whatever the spray tint stuff is on mine. Has held up for a couple years how

cool beans. I'm thinking that I'm going to end up keeping mine and fixing a few things rather than robbing it's engine and it doesn't seem like enough people try and work with these. Interested to see what else you'll come up with.

Wow, so its been some time since I've updated this thread. Recently I have fixed quite a few things that needed to be taken care of.

The brakes all around on the car when I got it were shot. As you guys know, I retrofitted B5 S4 HP2 front brakes (calipers and rotors) on to my UFO strut housings. These were hand-me-downs from my S4 which had just received a full big brake kit. A few pics:



That took care of the front.

Recently I have replaced the entire rear brake system. New (reman) calipers, OEM vented rear disks and mintex red box pads. I just picked up the set up brand new OEM parking brake cables as well because mine were sticky. Should be installing them very soon.

Today the car is going for a 4 wheel alignment which IMO it needs real bad!

Other then that a nice new set of Nokian Hakka RSi's were mounted on my S4 avus wheels.

Updates to follow.

The S4 wheels look great on your car too!!! They will look especially nice when its lower like I said in the other thread. From the looks of that list, you will have that covered soon though :)

Its so nice to see others doing insane things to these cars. You are I are going to have very similar cars when I get mine together.

Rear control arms installed and alignment has been completed. It so nice to have a car that goes straight down the road :)

Unfortunately the window regulator died, so that's on the list before anything else.

It's been quite some time since the last update! I have done quite a bit with the 200 lately getting it ready for H2O international. Replaced the suspension with some H&R sports and bilstein sport struts. Also replaced the rear control arm bushings when the suspension was installed. Also picked up a nice set of BBS RK's and some new General Exclaim UHP's. Yesterday I replaced the factory turbo with just another stocker because mine had defiantly seen better days and was smoking. Wow, what a pain! Replaced the VC gasket as well. Also picked up an EFI Express 3" downpipe and am having a full 3" stainless mandrel bent exhaust built this week and using a vibrant stainless dual tip muffler. I'm super excited to get it all done. I'll prob throw a chip in it between now and then as well.

I think we've met.

A few yrs ago at a Shift518 gtg in central park. I was the guy w/ the green Ur S4, and I think you had your silver stg3 B5s4 that day.
I'm a friend of Justin McGrath's.

Anyways. nice type44 project ! who's doing your exhaust ? I need a dual exhaust made for my S6 Avant.

Thanks.

Mike

Yes we have! How's it going man? I'm having Inline Performance on Altamont Ave in Rotterdam build the exhaust. They or Synapse do great work! It's not going to be cheap though. Stainless and mandrel bent really rack the price up quick.

Haven't decided yet actually. The 200 probably but maybe I'll get someone to bring the s4 down too, lol. The S4 is staying home for H2O though.
