Ghost's "build" thread.
Hello everyone. Here is my first shot at a "build" thread.
I bought the S4 after looking at used cars for several months out of Chandler Arizona. I was able to find a pretty sweet deal on a car that was owned by a few "snow birds" in Phoenix. The cars was babied and only had 18k miles when I purchased. The cars was also decked out with a few extra options that I had been looking for.
So here she was the day I bought her. My Monsoon Grey 2013 B8.5 S4 DSG with sports diff, B&O sound system, carbon fiber interior, and fine Napa leather.
The next set of slight modifications were cosmetic and consisted of wrapping the chrome trim, adding some carbon fiber supercharged badges, and a black optics grill.
After some cosmetic goodies I decided it was time to make this care sound proper, this brought me to the guys at PartsScore in Scottsdale, Arizona. They had a used AWE Exhaust and offered to install it as well. I initially went with the AWE track edition with Non-res DPs. After about 800 miles of driving with this obnoxiously loud exhaust I converted to the Touring system with the same DPs and achieved the exhaust tone I was seeking.
At this point I caught the mod bug and began to save up for bags. I was able to find a member off the forum who had an entire Airlift 3P kit that had never been installed. I had the tank powder coated to as close to Monsoon Grey as I could get, here is my kit prior to install.
Again, I went through Partscore for the install and also picked up some Rotiform wheels from them. They absolutely killed the install. Wheels are LAS-R 19x10 +35. Wrapped in 255/35 tires.
Here is how she sits now.
