Hello to all.

I want to introduce myself and my car. I´m Sebastian, 28, from Lichtenstein/Saxony in Germany. Currently i study automotive engineering in the 7th semester and i work at http://www.thielert.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; in the flight test department.

My car is an Audi 4000 S quattro... "My Little White Beauty" ...it has left the assembly line at the 5th january in 1984. He spent the first years of his life in Bremerton/WA until 1986...(as written in the service certificate).It was originally JT-equipped, but i changed the engine in 2006 because of a coolant leakage into the cylinder...because of the low compression ratio of...8:1 i didn´t want to put more work than necessary into this engine. i looked for a NG engine because of the better comp ratio and the possibility of getting a better tax...in germany called Euro 2...

i got one of the first NG in a good condition.it has a KV camshaft originally built in and in combination with the three-pipe-exhaust-manifold, the car is a better cruiser.... no race car ;)

the 17inch ZENDER rims are now...the 5th or 6th sort of rims i drove on my 4Kq. for these rims i had to set the suspension new....in front there are bonrath bearings (adjustable camber), koni golf mk 1 shock absorbers and fichtel&sachs 35mm springs (for front axle) mounted.in the back there are original bearings,kayaba gaspressure shock absorbers and G&M 60mm springs (for front axle) mounted.

the dimensions of the Zender rims: 7,5x17inch ET35 with 205/40R17 Nankang ... at the rear axle there are additionally distances mounted...15mm on every side.

my special interest are exhaust systems...i always built them on my own...urquattro mufflers etc...BUT...this year my friends built a new exhaust system for me...76mm...3inch...the engine won´t need this diameter, but i love the deep sound...just gorgeous!!!

so the whole exhaust system has a diameter of 76mm / 3inch...even the catalyst (an original metal catalyst from a BMW E30 - fits perfect like the original Audi catalysts...same dimensions!!!).
The exhaust needs to be polished...completely polished because of rust protection...i´ll do it the next weeks.

AND its a good base for installing a turbo-charged engine soon.

So i hope my english is not too bad and you guys understand me as good as possible :)

some pics of the car (the pics with the flat hubs at the rims are the newest ones):





the front muffler...

the rear muffler...

the whole system...i´ll change the pipe to the tailpipes as soon as possible into 3inch...we haven´t had time for long welding sessions :)


some nice documents...

Man, I'm digging those Zender wheels. Very old-school. Look great on your 4kq!

Beautiful car. Is there any other US 4kq in Europe that you know of?

What's with the hump in the trunk (driver side)?
Whas that a modification to get a full size spare in?
Just wondering.

@ rallyquattro

i hope i understood u right...yes...its for the spare wheel...but its just a small one...15inch and...about 4,5inch wide.

don´t your 4kq´s have this hump??

there are a few 4k in europe, which i know...also a 4kq...a 86 i believe...but absolutely no '84 4kq...

in my opinion, my '84 4Kq is the only one...in good drivable conditions...but i would be lucky if i´m wrong. ;)

Yes, all have bunps, but yours looks way different than any I've seen before.. in fact it's in the way of the exhaust.
Here is an example.. obviously this one is the facelift car so it has the "trench" behind the bumper, but look at the spare whell bump.

its a '84 quattro...so we might ask other '84 owners, if they have the hump in the trunk like my 4kq.
I have exact same car as yours:



I looked at it again and I think it's just the way it looks in the pic.
So I think it's just an illusion.

Like fine wine, the older they get the better the body... I am on my second 1984 4000kq, both were Tornado Red, my second 84 car is now done a full KH swap, 034 just called me today they finished up what I started, I'll post pictures when I get the car cleaned up some more. I have always liked the early cars, for some reason they have a different feel, anyone??
