Default the audi upgrades.

since i get screwed with about my audi, thought i would be like a bunch of other builds and post my bolt on upgrades..(it is a 4x4)

so the air suspension took a poop.everyone said it would..so i figured why spend all the money on something that is just going to go bad again. so i bought the arnott coilover kit.this should take care of all the air ride issues they have.also new brakes, rotors and a new cv shaft. so i should be able to take it off some cool jumps now.
here is the kit,

You have an Audi? Fag.

Who messes with you about it? Audi makes a fine auto - whatcha got? Shit - you mentioned air ride. Allroad.

Those are badass. What year?

It gets touched on here. Maybe it isnt as bad as the Nissan GT-r...
Your viper required somebody with some skill and paying attention to drive fast.


That being said, there was an R8 on the floor at delta imports when I picked up my impreza. It is an impressive looking car.

well finished it up at 7am this morning. the back was actually harder then the front.had to take all the arms off and all the sensor crap.so basically you pull 80% of every part out of each corner to get these things back in place.
well worth the work and money..rides awesome!! would recommend this kit anyday. they also tell you how to disarm the compressor and change the wireing so you dont throw a code.
