My name is Tom.I've been a B7 owner for almost 3 months now after selling my little old pocket rocket A3.
This is going to be kind of build thread.Rather than creating one every time I make some changes I decided to make this one and brag about them mods every now and then.
So after nearly 3 months of B7 ownership I'm still chuffed with my a4 S-Line Quattro .Yet the time to get em first mods already came.
I'd like to do things systematically so first thing to improve in this already solid nice car is the safety and handling.
Brakes and suspension:
In my opinion first thing to do when modding the car is to improve its safety,reliability.So the brakes come first.
Originally i was thinking of doing the S4 brake upgrade,but after coming across issues with sourcing and fitting S4 carriers i decided to go for a plan B which also ended up being more wallet friendly.The plan B consists MTEC drilled and grooved discs all around ,Mintex pads,Hel braided hoses and some good brake fluid.This money saving option also allowed me to get some lowering springs at the same time. I went for H&R 45mm all round as I have a quattro and Eibach doesn't do a sportline kit for quattros.
this Way I also wanna say thank You to Damian at DPM for the quick delivery and spot on product
I hope to get them all fitted trough this week/end so an update will be coming soon.for here's som pics.
all the stuff as it came in its beauty notice the curious spectator in the upright corner
Hel Steel braided hoses (with lifetime warranty!) and some well known/recommended motul brake fluid
