    Evolution of a 2014 Phantom A7 Prestige

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I've always enjoyed reading build threads because it's awesome to see how cars evolve from time of purchase into personalized machines. This one in particular is not mine, but belongs to my husband who isn't on Audizine. I wanted to capture what we have done to the car so far, and then add anything new here as well.

    An Ibis White S5 coupe was traded in for this. Welcome home!






    First modifications were 3M Crystalline tint, Injen intake, and AWE quad tip exhaust with S7 valance and alu-optic trim. The sounds of the supercharger whine plus the exhaust is incredible. Also debadged all of the clutter on the rear:




    Not a big fan of the stock 19s, so stepped up to 20 inch BC Forged HB04s in brushed silver with polished lip from www.pyspeed.com and dropped down on H&R coilovers:





    Had the paint treated with Chemical Brothers SS6, Lamin-Xed the headlights, tailights, and front/rear reflectors:

    Dropdead beautiful. I have a question though. What tint of Lamin-x did you use on the tail lamps? They seem a little dark ( or it might be just me ) .

    Just "tint" level. I feel like our taillights are already kind of dark to begin with, and the lighting was low. You can see how much darker the tails look in the AWE exhaust pic compared to the welcome home pic, and there was no tint there.

    Wheels are 20x10.5 all around, +30 offset with 275/35/20. Thank you for all the kind comments!

    So all those who posted think that tinting tail lights is a good idea? Talk to your insurance adjuster and ask him about the advantages of tinting your tail lights. He will approve because it negates his involvement and the insurance company will decline your claim in the event of being rear-ended. Complete with medical bills that could be a $500K mod and a suit that takes your assets. I spoke to the adjuster yesterday having been rear ended in my 2014 A6 and he said one photo of the tails gets the insurance company off of the hook. BTW - I would never tint my tails, being seen is important to me - it may save me $$$ and/or my life.

    That's funny because a lot of OEM cars have them now from the factory.

    OP, great looking car. What are the offset on the wheels?

    When it is done OEM the manufacturer increases the luminous output of the bulbs to meet the DOT specification. If you do it aftermarket without the brightness increase you will provide the hook that the adjuster is looking for, the adjuster gets a promotion and you get screwed.

    DB22, concur with your assessment, but at the end of the day we're all adults here. I'm sure anyone tinting their lights does so knowing the overall risks.

    OP - fantastic job on the car!
