Thank you

The car is equipped with Audi's drive select (ADS) which allows you to adjust the dampers on the go, from soft & comfortable to sporty stiff. This option lowers the car 30mm from factory.

I've also installed 5mm spacers in the front & 10 mm in the rear with squarer tires (Yokohama AD08) so the wheels rest at the edge of the fender for a more low & tucked look.


Apart from upgraded consumables, its got a cold air intake (CAI) by Volant. It doesn't bump the horsepower but helps the engine breathe better & develops a nice roar at higher rpm.

That is indeed a nice looking A4 fre2bpowerless. Kudos. *thumbs up* And you're brave for choosing that red on an Audi. Many would be happy with blacks and greys, whites and silvers. Especially considering resale, if it ever comes up.

I have a few questions.

- What is the setting of the adjustable dampers at the moment when these pictures were clicked?

- The wheels look 18" to me. Or are they larger? Could you give us the wheel-tyre's spec / size?

- How well do the Advans hold up in the wet?

- Is there any tyre noise? Does it get intrusive once you pick up speed?

- With respect to the CAI, do you feel any difference is the real-world, apart from the roar? Has throttle response improved?

- What does the future hold?

Thanks Suhaas . I had no option other than the Red (hated it initially), I'd have preferred a Black or any dark color. My garage has 3 blacks currently.

- The drive select isn't height adjustable, car will be 30mm lower than an A4 with standard suspension.

- Those are the optional 18"x8 wheels with 245/40 tires.

- Even the stock Yokohama did well in the wet, even with STM/TCS off these grip even better. Quattro has something to do here.

- The tire noise compared to stock hasn't increased or reduced but its not intrusive. No problem.

- Volant claims a hp/tq bump but I haven't felt any difference from stock. Throttle response is the same. Switching the ADS to dynamic wakes up the car.

- The car has been sold, I actually got a better price & a quicker sale than another 3.2 in the market right now. Concentrating on doing up the Z for now, hopefully I can get around to starting a thread for her.

As I have said many times before, your Civic looks hot! But if I remember correctly, your car had those white Type-R alloy wheels before, right? When did you change them?

Pink is just one colour seen here. There are 8-9 different colours to choose from. The plasma lights are operated using a remote control and you can set the speed, brightness and mode.

Brilliant execution! The back looks much better now with those Mercedes E-Class like tail lights. The spoiler should've been given a miss though.
