Default A4 Categories

You might all notice that the A4 section has been modified to add the different model year categories such as the B5 to the B8 models.

When posting please post in the proper category to get the most out of your post.

Thanks, Mike

I may get this wrong but the A4 series of cars went through a number of body style changes over the years. The first being the B5 style which is from years 1994-2001. Then came the B6 body style or the well known "bubble butt" look which ran from 2002-2005. In 2006 another body style changed where they went to the large fish mouth front grille and more streamlined tail lights. The B7 body style ran from 2006-2008. We are now currently in the B8 body style which started in 2009.

Like I said I may be off on my years but hope this explains things for you.

This is if you are referring to the face lifted B5 which was introduced in 1998, not 1996


Pretty close for all of you but, a little off;

B5 - 1994 - 2001
B6 - 2001.5 - 2005
B7 - 2005.5 - 2007
B8 - 2007.5 - Present

This is for North America, however European Market overlaps a little more.

Still slightly off - my 6 Speed Manual Avant is very definitely a B7, Model Year 2008; I am located in Canada, which last I checked was still considered part of North America One of the reasons I bought the Avant then was because I had been hearing rumours of no manual B8 Avants for North America.

MY2009 was the start of the B8 for North America.

I always knew we had some experts here on the forum....LOL

I would say that 90+% of the members and new members would know what body style they have. This was the only time I have come across someone asking.

Model year 2008, however still produced in 2007 if im not mistaking. I am curious can you post the production date of it? You should find it on your B-pillar between the driver and rear passenger doors.

Phinx404 was correct... B5 started in 1996, not 1994 in north America. I had a 1996 B5, they were only available with the 2.8 v6, and it was a 12v with 170 hp, the 30v 2.8 v6 with 190 hp started in 1997.
