I bought my first Audi from Ryan at Dubwerx too. Weird. It was a 12v V6. I have since discovered the love of the inline 5
Yea that was a lot of it for me. My buddies was a 7a with no cat and two cherry bomb staright through mufflers on a 2.5" exhaust. It sounded amazing, very throaty and not raspy or ricey at all.audis2clone said:it started 11 years ago when I just simply heard the exhaust note of stock 4000, loved I5 ever since.
My story is similar as well...In the past month month I've a done 2-6+ hour round trip in the 4KQ and 1-6 hour round trip in the 5KTQ. Even with the age, wear and tear plus lack of AC I can't think of a better car or cars for road trips. Driving both the 4KQ and the 5KTQ on a regular basis as daily drivers makes for a pretty balance driving experience matter of fact My Wife brought up the same fact before I did last week.westco4k said:My love didn't start with the I5. . . but for one reason or another I was drawn to the 4k quattro. This magnetic attraction lasted almost a decade without owning, driving or even riding along in one of these cars. Always thinking to myself i'll get one someday, constantly seeing good deals come and go, never in a position to buy, the need for one never faded. Finally I was commuting 2-4 hours a week over the continental divide in my freshly restored 280z and it just seemed like a bad idea after all that rust repair. So I began the search for the audi I always wanted. . . not having much luck I was very close to pulling the trigger on a black coupe GT when my best friend said to me "why don't you just buy my dads? it's in way better shape and it's just sitting there" This was the car I had my eye on for many years but I didn't think he would ever part with it, I responded "call him up right now and see what he would take for it." apparently we caught him on the right day. It was a little out of my price range at that time but I made the sacrifices necessary, sold what I could live without and made it happen. Over the last year and a half every other project I have has been put on the back burner for my quattro but I wouldn't have it any other way. Sometimes a certain car will just speak to you.
