Clear bra

July 6th, 2006 Comments off

I got a clear bra installed onto my S4 last week. My Oettinger bumper looked like swiss cheese after the last six months of driving. I had to get the bumper repainted and then got the plastic film installed afterwards by Daniel Cook from Transparent Bra. Daniel did a fantastic job and was extremely patient in getting the job done right.

Some new shots of the car:

LCD picture frame

May 18th, 2006 Comments off

I’ve really wanted to have some sort of LCD picture frame, including an aborted attempt to build one of my own. From a cost perspective, it sure seems cheaper to buy one. Here’s my preferred vendor right now:

19″ RS4 Replicas

January 27th, 2006 Comments off

I decided I had to have 19″ rims. I really like my 18″ Oettinger RZs, but because of the rivets it just makes the rims look really small. I saw that a number of manufacturers were making OEM-style RS4 rims, so I bought a set from Hartmann Wheels. I ended up using Falken tires, so far so good.

I bought 19″ RS4 replicas from Hartmann Wheels. I had to buy OEM center caps from Audi (Part No. 4B0-601-170-A-7ZJ, Wheel Cap, $17.73 ea).

2nd try at coilover settings

September 27th, 2005 Comments off

Had the car raised a bit, made a big difference. Got about 1″ clearance all the way around. Much smoother at highway speeds and not as much worry about scraping the front.

Tein Basic Coilovers & Oettinger front griile installed

September 23rd, 2005 Comments off

Roko over at Topline installed the Tein Basic Coilovers and Oettinger front grille that I ordered. I got the Tein’s from Eurocode Tuning. Topline ordered the grille from CEC Wheels and then painted the slats to match my color. I also got the Neuspeed rear sway installed.

So far I really like the ride though the Tein’s are a little lower than I’d like. I’m going to go back in a week to get the ride height increased a bit, which will require another alignment.

At this height, the ride feels a little harsher than stock though a lot tighter in turns. The rear sway definitely makes a difference as I don’t feel like the front end is plowing through turns anymore (then again could just be the COs).
