    OEM+ 2012 Phantom Black Avant Build Thread

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Joined last summer of 2015 after getting back into an Audi again and have been surfing around soaking up some inspiration from so many of the other B8 owners around here. I never thought I would start my own thread but the parts list has started to add up—and thought it would be fun to share my progress with some other avant owners out there. Although the car didn’t come with the black optics package, I have been slowly trying to build a unique version of it.

    Thank you A4 Centaur, Dropshadow, Stubek, Gunnark100, redavant and Kdaffy for the avant inspiration and help with questions along the way. And a big thanks to my friend Cory who’s been helping me with some of the wrenching.

    Sooo…..here’s my B8 Avant!

    Very clean!

    Hey, I'm thinking of using almost your exact suspension setup (although I was planning to go with eurocode sways and endlinks, but close enough). Would you recommend it? The stance is perfect!

    Any plans to add a TTRS wheel to finish off the interior? Really nice OEM+ looking avant you've put together. I would black out the window trim too. But really nice package!

    Thanks! Yes the sway bars make a big difference in the handling. I went with those first and just dropped the car last week. The handling went from tight (on the OEM sport suspension w/sways and AK) to REALLY tight and noticeably stiffer but not harsh. You feel everything in the road, but it's not jarring. I think the B12 ride height is perfect for a daily driver and couldn't justify the extra cash for a set of coils. The only thing I didn't do were the end links. I have heard they will tighten things up just a tad more. Hope this helps!

    Thank you! Yes, the plan is to find a S-line flat bottom wheel and piano black instrument surround for the cabin finishing touches. I have also looked into blacking out the window trim. I had originally wanted to use OEM parts, but the cost would be stupid expensive and hard to find. I think i might have them wrapped in matte black vinyl this summer and maybe leave the roof rack bright to match the front splitter and fog rings.

    While you're taking suggestions I'd paint the mirrors (or wrap them) to match the splitter and strip the badges. It is amazing how the shifter update really makes the interior look that much newer. <3 avants

    Picked up a set of B&O speaker covers from another member parting out an S4 last week. It's a simple little upgrade but I think it complements the black/aluminum accents in the interior really nicely.

    Pleased to hear mine was an inspiration as others have also inspired me. Really Love what you've done with yours. I was impressed enough to post pics of how similar mine looked, glad you did not mind me sorta 'jacking' your tread :-) I'll surely keep following your build.

    Thanks man! Seeing how clean yours looked gave me the motivation to strip them off. And the LED tails really update the rear end of the car.

    Found a deal too good to pass up today. I've taken the leap and plan on converting the headliner and upper interior to black. It's going to take some time to assemble all of the parts, but this is a big chunk! More to come.

    That is a hell of a score. How did you find all that in one place? Only question I have is, did you make sure to get the right D-pillars? There are different part numbers for cars with or without B&O stereo because there's a speaker in the D-pillar.

    Also, what is the piece in the bottom center, and the two curved pieces in the top right?

    I couldn't believe it myself. Found on German eBay for 269 Euro. My car came with the non B&O D-pillars, so once again a lucky score. It even includes the 2 little sun visor clips!

    I'm trying to figure out what those extra parts are. I've never seen them before. I think one might be a rear view mirror cover for a different style mirror, maybe one with lane assist if that exists? I have no idea what those little curved pieces go to.

    All the parts seem to be in excellent shape. He had a bunch of photos of the individual parts in the listing. I've got the rear view mirror and front and rear light covers already in the car. Just need to find a sunshade!

    This one was on eBay recently. I'd contact the seller to see if it actually sold.

    Ok, think I figured out what those curved pieces go to. I believe they cover the rear hatch hinges. I never even thought about needing those parts so I'm glad you pointed 'em out!

    Ha, you're right! I don't think I've ever seen those pieces in anything but black, but at least you've got them now. Do you have all the grab handles you need or are you still needing two more? I know a guy with a few he might be willing to sell.

    I am currently looking for two rears, if @avantagg doesn't need them.
