If we can ever make it happen, the 3 of us should venture over to her place. I'd bring the 4kq, so we'd have a few Graphite over whorehouse cars there :)

I just wanted to comment how nice the interior is on this car and how cool this came out - Audi's red interior was rad.

The floormats did it for me. Its rare to see nice red leather but OEM Commemorative floormats? Never seen any that nice. Amazing owners and glad this is in Ben's hands!

Just realized I hadn't put up an "after" picture of the engine bay totally done:

Looks nearly new, love the attention to detail. Incredible the difference a good clean and a couple new or refurbished parts can make.

A little update on this car
Drove it to Carlisle with zero issues there and back again. AC held up in pretty intense heat on the PA turnpike at a standstill for like an hour for a wreck.

Not the fastest car but really is comfy!

I cleaned it up and took a bunch of photos yesterday after finally detailing the wheels. Also got a couple "new" stickers in the engine bay (radiator fan shroud and brake reservoir) and a metal sticker for the rear "AUDI GT" that makes the emblem look new:

And here I am with Mikey at Carlisle with our CE twins:

and on the way there:

Such a great looking car! Glad it made the Carlisle trip without issue. I’d like to make that show sometime.

Glad things are going well with this! I wish I would have gone this year, but didn't want the wife too upset with me right before we went on out camping trip haha

Also, I have a nice coolant tag around here somewhere is you would like it. It's from an early B3 so I think they still used the same coolant.
