    New A4 2.0 Tdi 170 Special Edition owner

    Hi all,

    Having not had an Audi in a few years whilst I finished studying I'm back on the Audi bandwagon with the car mentioned above
    I've had some good history with Audis in the household with my father being a big fan, so growing up with original Audi quattros, coupes and an S2 I've come full circle and made my current purchase a few weeks ago.
    Loving the car right now, Phantom black with the Black Optics kit, Volterra leather etc.

    Just signed up to get some more info on how I can improve it.
    I've already got a few thoughts in mind, such as the RS4 grill (the car already has the 14-spoke wheels), the Cupra splitter and possibly an engine remap.
    Any help along my journey is very much appreciated

    Cheers Drmole, I noticed your car in the garage when I joined last night, it looks great
    I'm in Birmingham, so not sure where the best place to go would be. Once I've done a bit more homework, I'll contact Rhyso on your recommendation.
    I've seen the splitter on a few red A4s and the black contrasts nicely. I've yet to see one on a black one so I'm not entirely sure how it'll look.
    I don't have a centre arm-rest which is one simple thing I miss having on a car so I'll be looking to source one with fitting instructions lol

    Hi, welcome to ASN from one A4 owner to another, your A4 sounds nice,i run a 57 plate 2.0tdi s line running 210 bhp following a map, this was already done when i got the car, made contact with the owner and its 320 + lb/ft now also - much quicker than my old 1.8t and still gives 48+ mpg - i have seen splitters and they do look good - trust me black on black looks nice - looked at an advant with one on.
    Mine is also dropped 60mm with 19" A5 rims that some say will not fit - lol

    Cheers for the welcome, all

    I'm considering a drop now after seeing a few B7s on here that have had suspension tweaks. Each time I look at my car now, all I see is the gap between the wheel arch and wheels, and it's not even a significant amount! This is what ASN has done to me lol

    mine was all done when i bought it, garage didn't even realize it had been done, the ride is firm but feels more connected than my old B6 - went to so many show's and made my mind up to upgrade as my B6 was mint.
    Were i live there are not many modified B7's so it does get some looks - its the rims that you really don't see on B7's its mostly deep dish.
    19" with 8" width have given no rubbing or catching. I can just get my hand through the gap between arch and wheel - with my family in the car the wheels are well under the arch. Hope you give a DROP

    I don't think I want to drop it a huge amount, maybe just another 25mm to add a more sporty stance to the car.
    Ah, so many options, so little money...
