Pulled the trigger on a '92 RS2'd S4, drove it back from Colorado, first impressions it's awesome. RS2 turbo/EM/injectors, 7a cams, stromung gen 4 exhaust/downpipe. Porsche boxter (silver) brakes, bilstein/H&R suspension (sway bar because it's a 92 MY), a few sets of wheels and tires, 9x17 ronals w/ Pzeros on it currently. Component system with 4/3/2 channel amp and 8" custom sub sounds damn good.
Certainly will need some TLC, mainly in the exterior cosmetic department, but mechanically and cosmetically inside it is pretty much damn near perfect (or I hope..) I am strongly considering a matte wrap, in either black, red, blue (looks kind of nogaro-esque to me), dark grey, or white. (pics of those at the bottom).
The other problem I just encountered the other day, the tune does not seem to appreciate the rain very much. I experience a rougher idle and feel on acceleration. The car was originally tuned for altitude, but in contacting the tuner he assured me many run the tune at lower elevation without issue. So I'm not too sure about that one..
A few pics of the car:
Sanding/repainting the pieces under the headlights will occur asap.
Badge on the rear will be replaced - when depends on if I go ahead with the wrap idea.
Why I want to move to Colorado:
Almost ran out of gas in one of the fly-over states because stations only carried 87 - wtf?
Her first taste of the good shit - 93 octane here on out.
How she sits now - rack will likely be swapped over to white car. Until I decide to sell it, which could be sooner than later.
The matte options: (excluding black and white as you know what they look like)
I think I like grey white or black for daily use. But the blue or red could be cooler/unique... or... just hideous.
