Mar '08 Featured AZ'er: 1sicknickel's '07 A4 2.0T Avant
March 4, 2008 - By Audizine Staff
The word this month is 'unique'. There are hundreds of thousands of automotive enthusiasts out there, thousands within this community alone, and yet only a handful of us are brave enough to venture or even think very far outside the box. In my opinion Audi enthusiasts are some of the most unique out there. We're not interested in the day-to-day American or Asian cars or even the more common European makes such as BMW. There are some of us out there that like to go even further. Hell, even some of you wouldn't be caught dead in a "wagon", whether it's called an Avant or not. So therefore owning and modifying an Audi Avant is as unique as you can get. Or is it?
I present to you this month's Featured AZ'er, Peter Chaney and his 2007 A4 Avant. A quick look at Peter's immaculate Ibis White A4 and one thing definitely stands out, the wheels. Odds are you haven't seen a set of wheels like this before. Peter had all four of his 20 inch wheels custom painted, semi-gloss black centers with gloss white lips to match the vehicle. Behind them sits a beefy set of yellow 6-piston 14 inch Brembo brakes, like a cherry on the top of one crazy banana split sundae. A few other unusual bits around the car are the yellow-filmed headlight lenses, just underneath a custom painted vented carbon fiber hood from Vorsteiner. Below that you'll see more carbon fiber in the way of an Audi DTM splitter below the DTM front bumper.
Luckily Peter didn't spend all of his time simply thinking of how to make his A4 look different, he stopped and paid attention to the engine and to making it go fast too. Going with GIAC for engine tuning, a Racetech FMIC to keep temps down, and a custom La Bree exhaust to help it breath (not to mention sound and look good while doing so). All of these mods, along with several other more subtle ones listed in the following article, all add up to one truly unique vehicle. Modding on this level really shows a blending of art and passion. Peter lets his artistic side show through, and it shines for all of us to enjoy for the month of March. The best part is that we know he isn't done, and we're looking forward to what unique ideas Peter conjures up next! Full Story
