    April 2012 Featured AZ'er: JOS4AUDI's 2011 Q5 3.2 V6
    April 6, 2012 - Written by Richard Melick, Photos by Jeremy Serra



    User Name: JOS4AUDI
    Real Name: Jeremy Serra
    Location: Charlotte, North Carolina, USA
    Year of Vehicle: 2011
    Model of Vehicle: Q5
    Engine of Vehicle: 3.2 V6
    Color of Vehicle: Ibis White

    Jeremy Serra (AKA: JOS4AUDI) is no stranger to the four rings. With a strong history in ownership, he knew exactly what he was looking for when it came to his latest creation. We might say it's a bug that never lets go, but when Jeremy decided upon the 2011 Audi Q5, it was the challenge of building it to be unique that really excited him the most. With five previous Audis under his belt, he knew exactly what he was getting into.

    Most people wait a few months after the initial purchase to modify a vehicle, but that didn't happen for Jeremy. He was making plans even as he was signing the paperwork. As he is not new to the scene or the brand, modding came as a natural step. Taking the Q5 straight from stock to lowered 1.5 inches all around on H&R sport springs, and rolling on brand new 20 inch V708 VMR Wheels, was more than natural.

    In a little over a year, this Q5 has gone from being a stock, common, midsize SUV, to something hard to look away from. From the gloss black wrapped front grille, to the black wheels, and on through to the miscellaneous other blacked-out or carbon fiber-look trim pieces. The cosmetic changes bring an almost 'Storm Trooper' look with its sharp lines and bold contrast. One thing not forgotten was to make a statement through the exhaust note thanks to a custom Magnaflow catback and Stratmosphere hyperflow intake - making sure that you will hear the ride before you see it...

    Thanks D Frost. I just ordered some parts for my car they arrived in the mail today. Exhaust parts I'm building a custom exhaust,and a K&amp;N typhoon intake. It should be done Monday. I'll post pics on both my build threads. Even though it's an A4. Then I'll be back to work on the Q5.

    Also, curious what you think of the refreshed Q5 that was just announced.

    Lol ya Anthony just a few badges and stuff. I really have a couple ideas I want to do, but I'm saving some money first.

    As far as the new Q5 I love it!!! They did a great job with updating minor things, and not changing the whole look of the car. The interior updates are top notch, and the front end looks great!!! The 3.0 supercharched engine should be awesome of course. I love my 3.2, but the 3.0 has great modding potential.

    What I'm really loving is the new A6. I honestly thought I was set in getting another S4 ,but I don't know now. I'm loving the A6, and your car doesnt help make my decision easier lol. What a beauty!!!!
