Audi A4 1,8 20v Pack (1998)
A refreshed B5 A4 range appeared at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show, with sales beginning in Europe in early 1998. Besides the introduction of a 2.8 L 30-valve V6 engine (replacing the 2.8 L 12-valve), the most important additions to the range were the 2.5 L V6 Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel engine with 150 PS (110 kW; 148 bhp) and standard quattro, and a six-speed manual gearbox, as well the new high-performance Audi S4, now part of the A4 lineup (the previous S4 had been an Audi 100). New rear lights, headlights, door handles, and other minor exterior/interior changes rounded out the cosmetic updates.

In mid 1998, the 1.8 20vT engine available outside Europe had its power output raised to 170 PS (125 kW; 168 bhp). The previous KKK K03 turbocharger, although fundamentally unchanged, did receive some revisions on the turbine side to prevent cracking due to heat.  The 12-valve V6 was replaced by the 30-valve unit which had been available in Europe for two years.

In 1999, Audi debuted an even higher performance RennSport model, the RS4 Avant, like its predecessor RS2, available only in the Avant bodystyle.
