So after a bit of an accident, I accelerated the installation of my new stuff. What's new?

Kerscher Front
Kerscher CF Splitter
Painted wheel spokes gloss black
Euro Trunk (Europlates to come)
Deck lid painted black

Tell me what you guys think! (Besides the directions of two of my tires, I just saw that and cringed that the shop made that mistake; or my missing lower door trim which I took off because it was ready to fall off)

And Alan if you see this, I know you want to buy my old bumper and you can have it, I just keep losing your number and forgetting your username. I'm not ignoring you, seriously. PM/call me and we'll figure it all out.

Not into that rear bumper, but I like the trunk idea.

I'm digging the backwards front tires. Every time I watch CARS I want to improve my backwards driving skills to match Mater's. [:D] [:D] [:D]

The car looks great. For some reason the whole black top thing looks better on your car than most.

Thanks for all the comments guys!

Hey Lude, I feel ya on my old front... I actually had the kerscher sitting in the backyard for a while but never put it on because of how much I loved my Seidl front. I finally installed the Kerscher when I got into an accident and damaged the Seidl. A 'forced' upgrade if you will, haha but I personally like it alot now that its on.[:D]

Onemoremile; yeah I can't believe the shop would do something like that with my tires and sadly I didn't even notice it until I started uploading the pics. I'm going to fix it all today.

I was being an idiot in an unfamiliar city, exiting an unfamiliar exit, going an all too familiar speed. The exit had a sharp right turn at 25mph, and let's just say I didn't make it. [:(]

where did you find the euro trunk?

chadwix00
11-21-2006, 10:53 AM
Sides and rear you have to buy from estrictlyforeign.com as they are the only US distributor of Seidl. The front can be purchased from alot of places, DTM autohaus carries it for example.

Yoog, yah man I'll tell you all about it tomorrow. Are you flying or driving?

Beejohn, The euro trunk I got really lucky and picked it up from a local B6er who was planning to hack it up but decided against it.

Looks sharp, I bet alot of the dudes that have recieved abit of Audi carnage these days are wishing their cars turn out as nice as yours has after an accident.

chadwix00
11-21-2006, 12:09 PM
Thanks guys.

The fog lights are Hella Micro de's and the grill/mesh is from home depot cut to shape.

i really dont like body kits that much, but it looks pretty good on your car. the only part i dont really like is the side skirts....i think some s4 skirts would look better. but [up] for the black roof/hood/trunk

Shops and tech will never appreciate a car as much as it's owner. How could they? Why would they? [:(]


Shops usually just throw the wheels on so the car can be rolled around. They are too preoccupied to worry about details. Some are different but most are not. Sad but true.

looks very nice. only think i dislike is the rear bumper. Nothing against your car, I just dont like that bumper. It looks too bulky. not really OEM+.

Lazer Viking
11-21-2006, 02:37 PM
looks good, and i actually like that rear as opposed to the ugly ass rieger bolt on one... you need a euro plate on the back now..i didnt notice it was a euro trunk till i looked again, clean job though

4ringAR
11-21-2006, 02:42 PM
yea, it looks better than the rear lip replacement. but euro s4 and rs4 replica(for avants) look much better

when i work on other people's car i treat it like it's mine.



oh and CHAD!!!!!!
i think you should get rid of the door blades and mold it, it would make it look so clean homie! *i think i told you that before*[:D]

i see in your sig that you have a dtm roof spoiler... i've been looking into those a little bit, just wondering where you got yours? car is looking awsome man. i like how you painted the deck lid only so far and not the whole thing... inovative. props [UP]

11-21-2006, 07:32 PM

Missing the RS4 front but the new one looks good too! very nice changes!

chadwix00
11-21-2006, 10:11 PM
Thanks fellas!

Smoothie, the DTM Roof spoiler I bought used from another member but he said he bought it from DTM autohaus.

A4_2.8Tuner, the fogs are Hella Micro DE's and the mesh is from home depot. It comes in 2x2 feet I think.

smoothie
11-22-2006, 09:40 PM
hey thanks cahdwix, i've tried looking on their site but i dont' think it has been updated yet since they redid it. none of their products are on there....?

for boosted, i've heard a few say they don't like you front bumper but i do. if you don't mind me asking how did you do that with the audi logo? ya cut holes in ur bumper but i see you acctualy got the rings on there? just painted them or what?

and for one more mile, hopefuly i can be one of those "good" techs some day... it's what i'm going to school for anyway:)
