My S4 Widebody (Warning long post and lots of pics inside!!!)
Been a member here for awhile and thought i would finally introduce myself as i have been lurking around here as well as some other audi-centric forums for a bit. Mainly been on s246 and now on audisrs.com, but thought i might put some pics up on here of my S4.
Well where do i start? Had my '99 S4 for about 5 yrs or so, totally standard at first, and then i put a few bits on it like a milltek single exhaust, gutted precats, remap at MRC and it was basically runing around 320ish bhp for awhile and i was LOVING it! Alsohad some H&R coilovers put on and the car was lowered on the RS6 reps i had. After the remap, the car was transformed and ran beautifully! i knew i had a special car that i would probably keep for awhile.
Then the time came when it was reaching 100,000 miles and i said to myself shall i sell it on and go for the car i also love...an RS4 (B5)........hmmmm well i thought long and hard about it and wondered if i should keep mine and modify it further or call it quits and go for the RS4. Well the main decision was that i love my saloon, and didn't really want to go for an avant at this time...maybe later on in life maybe.....and there was always the rs6 at similar prices to an RS4 which is a whole different kettle of fish really.....so i decided to keep my S4 which i truly cherished and do a few little things to her.
A few 'before' pics for you.
As you might be able to see, the wing mirror was taped on with some tape as some scrote had ridden into it with a pushbike and ripped it off while denting and scratching the drivers door and wing as well as the wingmirror.
Well that was in November last year and since then i decided to go the whole hog and ugrade a few bits and go WIDEBODY! i just couldn't resist the look of the RS4 and after seeing this done by a few,mainly on this forum, i knew it could be done.
Thanks to Siena and Docurley for their builds and the inspiration to do this to my own car!
After a lot of searching around i went to UNIT 20 on the wirral where i found them to be top blokes who definetely knew what they were doing with their audis....i would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone on here to trust your car with them!
So i dropped the car off to them with a few bits from ebay.de to help with the build (you can find quite a lot of good stuff on there if you are willing to use google translate!). The bodyshop paint express next door did the main bodywork and paint while grizz and lee at unit 20 did all the engine work.
While the car was undergoing the body transformation it also had a few power upgrades......to be continued!
