Yes, KW does make a coilover kit for the C70.

If you don't care about speed...do you care about 2 less usable doors? Well, there's going to be a A4 coupe soon, right? I still can't seem like agree with the new A4 styling. Old one still looks better...I think.

C70 all the way. It says class. So does the Audi.
A4's are very generic looking. Although its a nice looking car.

Check mine out. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Go with the C70. Audi's are nice, but C70 coupes are rare IMO in comparison. I've had mine for 6 months, and most people don't know what it is. I say I drive a Volvo, then they look at my car...."That's a volvo!?" http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

I always get that too. One I heard at a gas station when some guy was checking out my car. He says wow I saw one of those at the car show.
The C70's are the rarest.

2 less doors and no quattro all wheel drive system. But you said you are not about speed, so AWD traction off the line or in a twisty isnt your priority, right? You said sytle is...As far as style is concerned the A4 is a pretty clean design, very solid, but sometimes that can be boring too. And the C has a very clean design, nice lines, classic-it'll never go out of style. It just needs some 18's and the KW coilovers right Volvopower? http://********************/smile/emwink.gif But think about it: Go driving around anywhere and count how many A4's you see. Then count how many C70's you see...

C70 without a doubt

its one of the classiest, fastest, and simply sexiest car in its class.

not sure if HPT is still an option.. but get HPT if you can. http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif

definitely get the premium sound system too because there isnt another car on the road that comes with a stock system sounding as good as this. it doesnt even need upgrading (audiophile's taste)

honestly.. here in Los Angeles as a college student i dont get too many questions about the car. i just get scratches and dings... and well since i live in a more dangerous/ghetto-ish part... i get unwanted attention.

also.. besides lowering and new wheels(maybe) there isnt any way to make the C70 nicer... oh, well maybe get your hands on the 2003 C70 headlamps... http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif

But Good luck..and post pics when you make your decision.. without a doubt i would go for the c70 over an a4 unless i plan to carry more than one passenger frequently
