Another super clean Q4
Again Switzerland produces another immaculate black
Q4. This one is Thoms, and boy does it look good.
The owner has made some nice modifications to the
car, both improving its looks and its handling.
The car now rides on 17x7" Mille Miglia rims wearing 205/40/17"
tyres. The wheels run with additional spacers to allow the correct offset.
These are located using the standard dampers and lowered (40/50mm) Apex
springs. To help tighten up the front end even further a Sparco (does
everyone have one of these?) strutbrace is fitted.
The engine is left standard with only an aftermarket dump valve and
K&N panel filter used to improve breathing. Exhaust gasses are helped
along their way by a CSC straight through middle section (Group N) and
a CSC end-part (146 x 75mm)
The exterior has been tidied up by removing some
of the badging from the rear of the car, and replacing the orange side
repeaters with clear ones. The brake calipers have been highlighted
in red for some visual impact.
Directional inputs are now taken care of by a 32cm
Momo Corse steering wheel, and the drivers feet now rest on aluminium
pedals. Visually the interior has been brightened up with sparco seat
belt pads, and door pins, and Serge's aluminium air vent covers.The
aluminium theme has been continued on the floor with checkerplate floor
mats for that authentic rally feel. A boost gauge is fitted where the
central air vent usually sits, using a very smart and standard looking
Safety hasn't been overlooked with a fire extinguisher located underneath
the front of the passenger seat, and a battery kill switch fitted.
Entertainment in the car is looked after by an
in dash Sony CD player with 10 disk autochanger in the boot, Hertz speakers
in the standard locations powered by a 300W Boss amplifier provide the
noise, whilst a MacAudio basscube in the boot provides the rumbles.
All in all a very nice looking car
