« on: August 25, 2006, 03:23:36 PM »
Hello Everyone, it took me a while but i have finally joined! I have been using this club as a reference for my Audi mods for a while now and thought i should try to give something back.......not sure what that is yet but i'll work it out......firstly my car..
02 Allroad, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S, Giac, some Vag-Com mods...Tinted Windows...yeah yeah i know..but my 5 month old girl loves the look.....told you i am new to this!
I also own an 05 Nissan Titan and an 81 FJ40..
Hope to come down to Denver for some GTG's / track days....have to get the wifes permission for the latter though.....
Thats about it for now.....


ps. Thanks to Randy and Todd at AutoBahn for all there advice and for helping me out with the Giac / Audi warranty switching...

I also have VAG-COM (registered copy) if anyone needs it up in this neck of the woods........to be continued

Thanks for signing up! Always great to have new members to share ideas with and drool over their cars.

 :thumbup: for the FJ as well! I have a 1977 Scout II. Rust buckets unite! Of course I have tackled most of my rust problems already.

Sweet.  I'll have to keep my eye out for another modded allroad when I am up your way.

We'll let my Audiworld sig cover what has been done:



as for what's next - probably either the Cayenne Turbo 6 piston big brake setup or new turbo back exhaust.

At some point I'd like to do the K04's (Or GT25's?) and a fueling setup along with some new intercoolers too.

And, yes, this allroad has been on the track.  kind of fun to make pigs fly!

Nice....i've looked at getting some different wheels and have been told many times..."they don't fit"...your running OEM RS4 18x8.5.......do you have spacers fitted? any problems with suspension height?....thanks for any info

no clearance problems and since they are OEM for the allroad (RS4 design but made for the allroad), no spacers are needed.

see my reply on your wheel thread for more info.

Welcome to the club.  It's good to see another VAG / FJ member.

I have an 86 FJ60 and a modded B5 Passat.  Both need more mods, haha!
