    Well, I figured I would start a build thread for my new car; for myself as well as the next owner years down the road - yes, no photobucket.

    Along with my ride, I figured I would do a little background of my Audi history

    1.) 1988 Audi 5000 I think it's a 5000? been so long...

    2.) 1990 Audi 90

    3.) 2000 Audi

    4.) 2005.5 Audi

    • APR Carbonio
    • RAI Downpipe

    • ECS LED Taillights

    • RS4 Shift Knob
    • Flat Bottom Steering Wheel

    • R8 Coil Packs
    • Silicone Intake Hoses
    • S-line Bumper
    • Vinyl Wrapped Trim Pieces
    • %30 Tint All Around
    • %50 Tint Windshield










    5.) 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet



    6.) 2011 Audi




    7.) 2014 Audi









    I don't have photos of some cars, but I will for sure look for some as it's always cool to look back at them.


    Did my first mod!

    Something I picked up in the B7 world: replaced the shift knob clamp. Makes the knob feel so much more to the car.. Anyways, more to come! I'm sure it will be a long journey!

    Well, not sure if this 'mod' did anything, or even know if I understand it, probably should have done some research

    I disabled the DSR - via http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...er-DSR-Disable

    Since it was the 'best mod ever'.

    After 20 or miles, I'm not sure I notice a thing? I have my car in Dynamic, so maybe that's it. Anyways thought I would document what I do.


    CR-15 brace ordered today as well :)

    Looks good. After seeing your pics, i would stock pile some money for tires. Those tires go super fast. I had my factory ones last for 10k and they were done.

    Yup, that I plan to. As soon as they are done, going to Pilot Port Pros, had them on the B7 and loved how they handled.

    Also, have a set of winter tires I will upload later for "documentation"

    Put black 3m 1080 vinyl around all the door trim. $25 and a couple hours later, much better I think.

    Coming together nicely! Digging the little vinyl touches you added. Especially liking the black on the S4 on the back. Nice that you kept the chrome which doesn't give it a fully blacked-out look, but still adds a nice aftermarket touch.

    What's next on the list?
    Shoot me a PM for a wheel or wheel & tire quote!

    I would love to say tint! But, the way we have budgeted and with Winter Coming (GOT for the nerds...) I think auto start. I saw some threads on a couple view points, but I've always had my buddy install compustar. Probably 6 Audis in my family he has done, not a single problem - so probably go that route. The -30/50 days get a hair cold!

    Also, thanks! That's kind of what I was after, and why I'm debating the tint; it looks clean enough but not %100 blacked out :)

    Well! I had TSB done for the tensioners. A whole list of parts! I'll try to update that later when I have more time, but after 50+ miles, and many startup's I've noticed that there is no more start up rattle, which is a huge piece off my mind.

    The bad part.. I've sensed a lot more vibration in the drivers seat, actually the whole car. I can put my arm on the window and watch my jacket wave from the vibrations, along with the shift knob vibrating as well.

    Maybe I'm just filling my head with things, possible it's been there the whole time and my mind is playing tricks on me. Buddy has an identical S4, even within 5000 miles on the odometer, and his vibrates as well.

    Overall, couldn't be happier with the service from Valley Imports in Fargo, had a new Q7 and that was pretty nice ride, but %100 happier in the 6 Speed!

    Funny that you mention increased vibration. I had mine done, and while the rattle didn't fully go away, my car had a lot rougher idle. It has since become a bit smoother, but nothing like what it was before this fix.
