    Progress on my 2007 A4 Avant

    Hi just thought share my progress on my A4. I bought the car in May last year as my old car (2002 Citroen Saxo vtr) was slowly dieing.
    It's a 2007 A4 Avant S Line, 2.0Tdi 140 with a multitronic 7 speed gearbox. It's a very smooth gearbox and the changes are bang on.
    The car was standard when I first purchased it, but I have changed a few things since.

    I first bought Rotiform BLQ 19" wheels for it, then changed to 3SDM 0.01 18" and now I have Bentley 19" wheels.

    Further mods included:

    JOM coilovers (which are actually good for budgets)
    US plate blank
    Pioneer Double Din headunit
    black front grille surround and badge
    rear is debadged


    Here's some pics il share:
    (feel free to comment your opinions)

    When I first bought the car:


    Lowered and on BLQs':


    On 3SDM 0.01 staggered wheels:


    And how it currently sits:

    Nice very tasty ....but imho I prefer the 3SDM 0.01 staggered wheels to the Bentley's.

    Good stuff though.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The 3SDM were nice wheels but need to have air ride really to make them look good.

    and as above I bought my plate blank from Audi dealers, I'll post the part number up for the S Line grille later for who ever wants it.

    I used Plastidip, it's a rubber coating which is like a spray, its sprays on and if you change your mind you can just peel it of.

    Whats it like in between washes dude? presume it stays OK? was thinking of vinyl wrapping my chrome window trims as they have been bugging me for some time (faded) if plastidip is OK might try that instead!

    Nice one! I'd previously thought about just getting them vinyl wrapped - but obviously thats not so easy done for the badge.

    How do you find the plastidip stands up to washing / polishing etc? Defo looks like its given a nice finish in the pic!

    AirLift all the way ! 30 way dampening adjustable and threaded front shocks aren't they ?

    How do you mean ? The front struts are a PITA to replace? or the fact that laying frame requires shock towers to be cut to give clearance for the control arms ?

    yup 30 different settings. The chassis will need a notch both sides too as the front dont go fully all the way down
