got a roof rack smile.gif

A4 with a sport package and a manual. I know I was talking about getting a Golf R but my wife is due any day now and I needed something a little bit more family oriented. On a plus side, my wife is letting me keep the GTI DS_Naughty2.gif I know it's not that exciting but I always really liked the look of the B8 A4. It will probably going to get chipped smile.gif

Nice.

But you forgot to post the thread telling us your budget and desires. Including a list of cars you've already driven and short listed plus others you've had your eye on. Of course we would all comment on other cars to consider giving our own preferences, perhaps a few of us would agree with something on your list. Then you deliberate and go with something completely different or forgo the new acquisition entirely. Then we would berate you for your decision either way. Welcoming you to the internet. It's even better if the scenario is for a friend's car who we've never 'talked' to and know absolutely nothing about other than, "not a car person" or "just wants to get from here to there and likes imported cars".

Nice nice, even basic A4s are very nice. Sport package 2.0T quattro with a 6-speed sounds slick thumbs_up.gif

installed this today:


found out that the car is boosting around 16PSI eek.gif while the old car did around 12 PSI stock. Interesting.

Well the torque output is significantly higher with the A4's motor than the GTI's, so really not too surprised by that...
b0mb3r
well that did not last long:

Installed some intercooler pipes. smile.gif
waiting for my exhaust.

the dumbass (me) had the phone set on night mode; not that galaxy nexus camera is exceptional tongue.gif

Anyway, I got an AWE single outlet exhaust, since they are built to order at their facility in willow grove; I should be getting mine soon.

yesterdays project:


old vs new


As my friend put it: "it just sounds healthier." The exhaust turned out to be fairly subdued but butt dyno reports better response.
