Here's all the work we did at Kenwavery's awesome hanger.

Took a few weeks but here is the A4 Sline Titanium Avant in Deep Sea Blue Pearl. Has black interior/headliner which is really awesome. Will be getting a tint soon. I have a side marker delete, 6000K HIDs, interior xenon look, RS4 22mm rear sway and Carbonio intake to install. I have ordered an exhaust. Plan to get a GIAC flash after 5000 mile service. I am hating the all seasons and I have had 3 offers already on the wheels. So I don't know what I am going to do about that. I may go check out a set of 19 inch BBS CH tomorrow. Considering Bilstein PSS9s. I have found them cheaper than KW V2s on Ebay.

A lot of people seem to fade away when their Passats are gone, but I guess I will stick around for awhile. The Passat isn't exactly gone yet anyway. There is still no resolution with the insurance company.









PZ installed the coilovers on Monday. Ride is fantastic. He also put in the 22mm RS4 rear sway. Stock was 18mm. I already have 2000 miles on this in less than a month. Two trips to Austin will do that. Also been driving to Ft Worth this week to help my buddy get his Shakespeare Festival ready to go.

Back to Austin tomorrow to put the Passat in a storage unit until the case is settled. It cant stay at the body shop anymore. Gene at Rebreu is getting in hot water keeping it 2 months and not doing any work on it. Totally cool guy though. Still recommend them for Austin or Central Texas residents!

On to the pictures!!!

Yep the rolling shot is from the Feb GTG/Drive. Yeah I know, profile was a long time coming.

Are the pics still showing up? I'm not seeing them at work, but I'm not seeing red x-es either.

I have v6 4mo and was thinking of an exhaust upgrade.

Where did you get the exhaust / headers?
How much for the entire exhaust system?
Do the pipes clear the rear valance ok?
No rubbing or heat problems?

TIA

PS -
Looks AWESOME!!!
