I'm sorry, but I really don't get what you mean. There's really nothing you can do that will give you any meaninful change in the performance of your car unless you change it mechanically. These cars are not for ideal for drag racing unless they're heavily modified.

Get an S4 motor with tip and you won't have to use any tricks.[:D]

agreed, if you are just looking for fun things to do, wait till it snows and do AWD doughnuts. Or take your car offroading

can you get tip installed on a automatic, or do you have to get a totally new tranny? how much would it be?

I would say your best bet is to sell your car and look for a new one in the same price range that has what you want.

Also, what do you mean by S4 taillights (in your sig)? Both A4s and S4s use the same tails.

Yes, as do the 98.5, 99.0, and 99.5+ A4 models (but the pre-99.5 have the stripe in a different spot). I'm not trying to say you're wrong, I'm just saying the same tails come on the A4s and the S4s. I was just wondering why you listed that they were S4 tails in your sig, I thought maybe they were something different than you may have been told. No big deal.

Set up a ramp at about a 76 degree angle, and drive over it w/ just one side of the car and try to ride on two wheels ; )

If you turn your lights off at night, you can drive much faster. It adds power to the spark plugs. Get up to about 100mph, and turn off the lights. You'll really feel it in the seat of your pants.

You can also try jumping out the sunroof while doing it. The weight reduction will really increase the speed of the car. Just make sure you have a brick on the gas pedal before you make the leap.

Chill bro. We're all here to help. Don't take any of that personally, it just got off topic and everyone started cracking jokes, but none of them were meant to be an attack on you.

Honestly, just keep being open an honest and ask questions, no matter how dumb they may seem. You can also find tons of info in the archives by searching.

Sorry for the rough thread, but don't ever take it personally. It's all in good fun. I can see how that all seemed out of line, but stick around and you'll see everyone here is good people and will be contructive.

"S4 sound cooler, and i have the crappy A4's"


thanks asshole, i bought this car with my own money, and i am happy with it. i dont car that your car is better than mine. your mom probably bought your car for you. and you didnt have to pay a dime. Dont ****ing put me down cuz my "car is not as good as an S4"! no shit it is not an S4. and if you think a4's are crappy why the **** do you have an audi. audi makes a4's. so if you think a4's are crappy i guess you think audi is crappy. **** YOU YOU IMMATURE LOOSER! what the **** did i do to deserve that statement saying my car is crappy! all you do in your spare time is ****ing put people down on how bad there car is to make you feel better....on the ****in internet....on a forum...wow you are pathetic. go get a life. go get laid. go get drunk. i would rather have a shit car and have a life, then have a great car and be a complete pathetic looser!

DDQ
06-28-2004, 11:54 PM
I hear ya bro. I've had plenty of bad days that were taken out on the forum. Like I was saying, just don't take it personally, when you're online people just type quick comments and sometime it comes across the wrong way. Just like life, there's idiots everywhere. Just brush it off and move on. If you really want to vent, go over to www.audiworld.com and join the fun.

First of all i bought my car with my own money too, so whats the deal. And i have an A4 not an S4, i wish mommy and daddy paid for my car but they didn't. I work 2 jobs to pay for this car and i also have to pay for my own insurance. I was joking about A4's and the tail lights. You are taking this way too far. I pretty much have the same car as you. I think before you start making this comments, think about how i am meaning it. If i hated A4's soooo much why would i buy one? I will let you think what you want about me and the way i think, cause your rude comments are not needed. i not once said YOUR car was crappy i said I have the crappy A4's, not YOU. If "ALL" i do is spend time putting people down to make my car better you much be the only one cause i not once said my car was better. I know my car isn't better than anyones. Like i said before, i not once said it was better than ANYONES!! If i were to try and put you down, why would i do it on this forum. I first talked to you on AUDILIFE and was straight with you bro. I even tried to get you some fogs for your car and sh*t like that. I don't know where you come accross and thnk i'm some immature loser just trying to put you down. I can't believe you can't take a joke, that i even said about myself(me owning an A4 just the same) Jesus. I'm not going to try or even start anything cause this is dumb. All i'm saying is that i was joking sorry for making you think that i was being serious. Thats all i have to say.

Pureaudi, dont go ****ing bitching at people if u dont get much help. You are lucky you didnt get flame right after your posts and here it started 1/2 way. Try AW.

An Audi is an Audi, just do what u think is the best. I mean, it is your car and u are the one driving it.

Mine is chipped and has a Tip chip, I still use a little "trick".

pump the brake and hold it, push gas down, watch boost gauge, boost will begin to rise, release brake, keep holding the go pedal down[:D]

06-29-2004, 12:27 PM
older a4s didn't come with tiptronic. 96-97 and maybe some 98 models had regular automatic transmission. and he might be confused about the taillights because his originals were red with amber and when he updated them with new ones he thought that they were s4 tails.
