After many months of waiting my new 2010 Audi A4 S-Line has finally arrived and I am LOVING IT! I never believed that I would like this as much, if not more than my beloved ’09 A5 that I sold a few months back in order to get 4 doors (more room, just in case). The lines on this car are amazing as are the S-Line wheels and other styling cues. I stayed with Audi Drive Select even with the high price tag, it is an amazing option to have. My only concern with the new A4 is the 2.0T engine and the lack of HP it produces. I must say that after two days I’m fairly impressed overall with the stock 2.0T engine and tip-tronic transmission. The reason why I am not so concerned is because turbocharged engines such as this can easily be tuned to truly unleash their potential, and I have a few options in mind for turning this A4 into something much more powerful. Here are some “modifications” I plan to do over the next few months:
- ECU Flash either from Stasis or APR
- Quad-Tip Exhaust w/ S4 Rear Valance
- High Flow Cat
- High Flow Intercooler Pipe
- High Performance Front Mount Intercooler
Once these upgrades are done I will likely de-badge my A4 (which I really dislike) due to the fact that those labels just won’t do the car justice. I can’t wait to get started! See below for a quick snap I took the day I got the car, more pictures to come soon!
