Car looks good man. What exhaust are you running? Pictures make them look like 3" tips. Race spring, correct?

Very clean! I love it - I need to paint my grill surround black also. Have you thought about painting your lowers/s4 lowers?

I hate painted lowers more than I hate genocide. I am going to get S4 sides but they are going to be painted black :)

Exhaust is a Remus muffler and yes I think the tips are 3", car is on ST coils.

Such a great stance... What are the specs on your FMIC and how much trimming went on behind the bumper?

.Mad Hatter.
10-26-2010, 03:28 PM
Racetec core and piping, custom bracket. All I needed to trim was the uprights between the center grille and the outer grilles...and even then I trimmed more than needed. You will need to trim some of the rad support for the piping, but that cant be seen anyway.

thanks guys, wheels are 17x8.5 and were bought as temp wheels. they are in desperate need of a re-finish...which they will get this winter ;)

While those CH's look so good on your car I really miss the RF's... those wheels were something else man

10-27-2010, 07:27 AM
With any luck they will be traded next week :)

To be honest, I didn't even really like them on the car all that much :(

Yes! Someone who feels the same as me, at least on the b5

Details on sidemarker shaving? Looks sweet!

.Mad Hatter.
10-27-2010, 11:35 AM
just plain jane fenders with the signal and audi logo filled and painted (the bumper is also shaved ;)

car is on ST coils @ 23.25" GTF in the front and around 23.75" in the rear.

i dont know why so many people hate on painted lowers so much... IMO it makes the car look lower to the ground. And also, all the s4's come with the same color lowers and look fucking clean! lol. Also, so does that mean you guys that dont like painted lowers, dont like black a4's with the lowers already matching?

Anyways, clean car man im loving the wheels on there and u picked a great scenary. I also just noticed that fenders were shaved, looks clean... A little low in the front for my taste... And wtf, what spring company makes a set that gives a negative rake!?

All cup kits have reverse rake, and so they should...the car will perform optimally with the rear end 1/4" or so lower than the front...

With regard to painted lowers; it's just not my taste. I have not seen one example that I think looks clean, especially not on a silver car.

s4 is an s4. If your want painted lowers buy s4 bumper, sides, and rear valence. IMO of coarse.

I resent that.....[>_<]

Looks perfect man. Truly. Great stance, wheels, paint, and minimalism.....a look to be emulated by the new guys.....How do you like the new-found power?

Loving it, sort of wanting more...lol

...and once again I much appreciate all your help with the IC, the bracket on there now is a little makeshift but I will re-do it before next season.

Minimal is sort of what I'm going for. I don't think most people even notice the sidemarkers are gone. HAH.

PS- I didn't even notice you had painted lowers...maybe I can retract my statement.

Haha. No worries.

Happy I could help out in some way. Adding power is a slippery slope.....When you start to get that thirst for speed, it'll only get harder and harder to quench over time. It's an unfortunate (yet VERY fun) reality of modding cars, haha

Quickly tho, what setup are you running? Been a while since I've checked out any of the current builds

Just a run of the mill 034 "Stage II":

2871R elim
high flow cast mani.
415cc Genesis
TAPP file (technically a 440cc file I think)

Very mild, very (in my mind) daily reliable.

Since this thread is about fall:

These wheels get shipped out tomorrow and I pick up the RS IIs
