My New Ride :) (Non BMW Content)

Haven't posted here in a bit, but still always drop by to browse regularly. Picked up a new car and figured I'd share it with everyone.

its so weird how some come factory with the v6t and other come with the supercharged. A buddy just got one and it has the supercharged. sweet sweet cars! id look into protecting that intercooler though. check out the diy for it on AZ.

This is personally my second one. After my E46 I picked up a 2010 A4 Quattro. The car was rock solid until I traded it in last week. Meanwhile the E46 is still in the family and constantly acting up. Don't get me wrong...I still love it and believe the E46 was one of the best designs of all time.

We also have a B5 A4 in the family and it's been a little more of an adventure. It's been reliable overall, but doing the timing belt and water pump was a pretty epic adventure, lol.

Can't! 2013 ECU is yet to be cracked. When that happens it will be seeing a pulley/tune.

The supercharged badges are part of an optional package. Much more cost effective to DIY them which is on the to do list.

Thanks. The seats and steering wheel alone were worth the cost of upgrading. The loads of extra power are just a bonus, lol.

Gosh I miss my Audi. Enjoy it!

I still haven't warmed up to the looks of the B8 but it is wonderful nonetheless.

Tint and spacers in the next week or so. After that suspension mods will start.

No track time yet, only had it a couple weeks. I definitely do see some track time in her future though
