Greetings all. Figured I needed a place to track the progress of my real first project car. I am excited for the progress that will be made over the next 2-3 months through to the next x amount of years. So for now a little intro on me. I have been a visitor to these here forums since 2007 when I purchased my first and certainly not my last Audi.
Enter my 2007 Audi A4 2.0T. We went to our local dealership to get a maintenance on my wife parents car and stepped into the Audi realm for the first time. We were talked into taking a test drive in the A4 on a winding road behind the dealership. Once we started the sales guy looks over and says to me if you don't push the car to over 100 on this road I'm going to call you a bitch. Being a man it was now my duty to abuse this car as I was never going to buy in the first place. So after I take my turn he asks that my wife drive it. After my wife opens it up she has a smile from ear to ear just nagging me to get rid of my 97 Honda Civic that was a hand me down. So we decided to sign to agree to buy but weren't liking the numbers. So my wife being Chinese and always wanting a deal asks if they have something similar which they did, one of their loaner car A4's with much less features than the one we test drove with 7k miles on it. Not knowing anything about Audi's or cars for that matter I didn't even question it. Seven years go by and I never got around to doing much with that car due to just starting my family. After my first 3 years with the car I had only added a paint matched filler plate to the front and lowered it with a set of Stasis Coilovers. My wife and I then had 3 sons within the span of 4 years.

After owning the vehicle for 7 years my wife decided to surprise me for my birthday with an A5. After some discussion I then talked her into getting the RS5. We had been busting our asses building our company up and finally got a huge order in hand which lead to the purchase of this car.

After owning a black on black A4 for 7 years in the Florida heat it was time to move to a cooler car. I have always liked the Ibis white color so that was my first choice. I made sure this time I got everything I wanted on my car and am looking forward to modding it. We just got a second large order for our company that we worked on for over two years. So some of you may remember my previous post of what would you do with 20k to spend on this car. Which in all actuality doesn't get a bunch.
More images to come over the next several weeks.
