    January '10 Featured AZ'er: PESAPC's 2007 RS 4 Sedan
    January 30, 2010 - By Audizine Staff



    User Name: PESAPC
    Real Name: Paul Stansen
    Location: Southern California, USA
    Year of Vehicle: 2007
    Model of Vehicle: RS 4 quattro sedan
    Engine of Vehicle: 4.2 V8
    Color of Vehicle: Daytona Gray

    It's pretty incredible that even after more than two years of doing these articles we're still hitting firsts. It certainly speaks to the range and depth of the Audizine Community. And while this month's article does come a bit late (sorry about that) we weren't about to let it be the first time we skipped a month. No, this just happens to be the very first time we've had a repeat Featured AZ'er. Back in September of last year we spotlighted the other Audi in the stable of a one Paul Stansen (AKA: PESAPC), a B8 A4 2.0T Avant. At that time the plan was to feature Paul and his two cars in one article, but after seeing all of the work he'd done to them it became clear that they each deserved their own spotlight.

    So to kick off the new year we have the slightly older, much stouter, and definitely bad-asser, big brother; Paul's 2007 Daytona Gray RS 4. Just as he did with his A4, this car too is modded to the hilt with the very best-of-the-best aftermarket parts. To help get all of the engine's ponies to the ground, there's a number of items from JHM such as a Stage 4 Kevlar clutch, lightweight flywheel, and downpipes, with the spine tingling V8 gurgle emanating from a Milltek exhaust. The tuning has also been tweaked by Singh Tuning, and the suspension has been vastly improved courtesy of STaSIS Ohlins Coilovers and an H&R rear sway. The power meets the road via a set of matte black HRE M40 Monoblocks, and the whole thing comes to a very abrupt stop thanks to the big bright red Brembo brakes which are visible at all four corners.

    Those who've driven an RS 4 know how versatile yet beastly the car is, even in stock form. With the car now as dialed in as Paul's, it fills a few key roles like very few vehicles can. Not only is it a perfect therapist, capable of managing one's stress level from 0-60 is just mere seconds, but it's the ultimate weekend getaway car. It doesn't matter the weather - rain, snow, or shine - and it doesn't matter the number of companions - from 0 to 4. From a short drive up the California coast, to a road trip through either the snowy hills or dusty deserts of Nevada, it's the sport sedan for all occasions. For this reason alone the RS 4 proves its worth on the short list of any die-hard car enthusiast. Although, with the degree of Paul's addiction to the best that Audi has to offer, he just might be the one help us achieve another milestone here at Audizine; our very first three-peat Featured AZ'er!

    Congrats PESAPC! Not only are you a neighbor but you inspired me to go with a full Brembo bbk on my ride. Your recognition is well deserved.

    Hi folks:
    I just joined the Audizine forums. Looks like a nice place to be. Any way I just picked me up an 03 Daytona gray RS6. I didn't know what color or type of Rims to put on it. WELL NOW I DO. This PESAPC Car is absolutely awesome. Congratulations on what I consider to be one of best looking cars I have ever come across. Everything just seems to match perfectly. Well done....

    As Anthony says, CONGRATS on the RS6 ... awesome car!!! My friend has an RS6 and it is such a great car, just like the RS4. Thanks for the compliments on my car ... I love it!! I worked hard to install mods that not only let's the car perform to the max yet look together and cosmetically / visually pleasing to the eye.

    I don't think so ... he was asking me whether Brembo dialed in one and the answer is no ... liability etc.

    Honestly, it has been months for me without the eBrake and its no big at all.

    yeah brembo made it clear they won't do the ebrake.. it's possible and i think they just didn't want to invest in time or resources to do it, but that's my opinion.. anything is possible and i don't think it's a reliability issue, an ebrake is better than no ebrake in my opinion (if there was an emergency where it was needed).

    i will eventually get a machine shop to make a bracket, but would be cool if there was already a source for it.. obviously there is interest because people keep asking for one :)

    I hear ya ... do you have rear BBK Brembos mounted? If you do the bracket for the eBrake, post comments and information about who did the work and at what cost.

    thanks!
