Car was dropped off at [email protected] in Norwood NJ for New car prep, Opti Pro and full front Xpel, rockers and blade. Will add pics once Phil sends them.

AWE valved exhaust is almost complete for me to pick up, looking to have it installed within a week or 2.

Suspension is up in the air at the moment ;)

Wheels are set waiting for them to arrive from a very far east somewhere will take a bit.

Not sure about tint yet gonna play by ear but I had tint on every single car I owned that was a coupe.

What kind of wheels? I sense a build thread with lots of photos coming over the next few months. Did you have another audi before?

Beauty, the red interior makes the interior carbon bits stand out.

How much did Audi Exclusive ding you for the wheel? Can you get it with paddles?
I don't think Audi offers a wheel like that? guessing he had it waiting for car? Is a great looking wheel and car. And yea congrats for picking up an MT!! I would throw one of these shifters on to match all that cf.

That's a great looking shifter for sure. But I actually like the stock SS shifter. Maybe I'd get a CF cap for it, but that's about it.

Sorry for not being specific, the steering wheel is from DCT Motorsports speak to Ivan very nice to work with.

I previously had a 2010 S5 6MT, DPE SC-SP16 wheels with AWE track exhaust/DP lowered on HR coils.

That CF shift knob is nice but not top priority

Even though it is raining here today, I can't wait to get mine. See you ordered the black optics package and titanium wheels, like I have. I didn't spec the red calipers, thought it would be too much, but after I see yours, hmmm, wish I had ordered that as well.
