    :itsme: Hello everyone! I’ve been gone for a while. I have some changes coming for the Audi

    getting rid of the bags (ordered coilovers last week, currently being built)

    Im getting rid of the 235/40 for some 245/40’s

    possibly adding more carbon fiber

    ohhh and I ordered a new 3” exhaust which will be here tomorrow :bananawhipdance:

    possibly getting a “big turbo” by the end of the year and getting rid of the recently upgraded is38 turbo

    I also want a custom tune, so I might pick up a cobb accessport

    Whoa now.. I think I’m averaging slightly more than a year nowadays.

    Custom Tune, eh? I smell an EQT Vortex coming your way.

    that WAS the idea BUT I decided to keep the IS38 for now, im still going to do the coilovers, wheels, tires and more carbon fiber. I ran into an evo 9 today and it reminded me how bad I want one. So the plan is the Audi as a daily and then build an Evo.

    Exhaust came in today!

    Well im ditching the closed box carbon fiber intake. I follow a guy with a 500hp+ golf alltrack and he made a custom 3.5” intake for his car plus 10 more, I was lucky enough to pick one up. It should be here next week. I’m starting to have a car part collection in the garage again lol

    Why the open intake vs the closed box?

    Ding ding ding, this intake is stupid loud.

    so the wheels are getting powdercoated next Wednesday. I really need to figure out this tire thing, stick with 235/40/18 or 245/40/18.

    @stilletto you think I would clear 245/40? I want a good drop once the coilovers come in

    You’ll clear if you’re high enough. Haha.

    I’m honestly not the guy to ask about tire sizes. Never been good with that stuff. Usually just run stock sizing whenever I can.

    Yeah that’s what I don’t want lol

    yeah im the same way, the look im going for is the one on this rs3 which has the same spec wheels but the tires are 245/40 but idk those look like they rub :/

    I have a stretch on my current tire 235/40 but yet again their nexen so that’s probably why because when I had the same wheels/specs on my ST I had less of a stretch but I had goodyears then. Im might just stick with the same 235/40 but the same Goodyear tires I had on the ST.
