2006 A4 DTM 2.0T Phantom Black

DTM specs:

- Engine modified to produce 220HP/300NM (standard 200/280): not just an ECU remap - apparently modified pistons, turbocharger and ECU.
- 6sp manual
- Crossdrilled brake rotors
- quattro GMbH special suspension settings
- 18inch 15 spoke deep dish alloys
- unique front and rear bumper: front - prominent brake ducts (cosmetic only), rear diffuser, red towhook, 100mm dual rear tailpipes
- grille and mirrors finished in Phantom Black
- carbon fibre front lip spoiler and rear boot lid spoiler
- DTM logo on side strips and brushed alu sill plates
- full electric Recaros in leather/Nardia microfibre combo with silver stitching
- carbon fibre trim as in RS4
- Nardia cover for gear shift and handbrake
- multi-function steering wheel finshed in combination leather/Nardia

Total package is unique and not just a simple dress-up. Released in 2005 to commemorate Audi's dominance in the German DTM series in the 2004 season. Only 260 RHD models produced.

And the best bit: despite being close to $10,000NZD more than the standard edition in the UK, in NZ it was the same price.

Go here for photos:

And I love it!

Cheers

As good a time as any, since i've just put it's new shoes on...

2000 S4 2.7 V6 BiTurbo
only mods are MTM stage 1 chip (225kw), 710N DV's, Oettinger RE rims
Bel RX75 remote radar detector and M2O blinder  :police:

keep talking myself out of getting a milltek dual middle and rear system and straight thru downpipes.  ::)

also want to put in some tighter springs, shocks and swaybar. but that will mean lowering which i can't really do at the moment due to garage access.(even though it looks like it's on stilts - more noticeable with the RE's to my eye - should've gone 18"  :-\ )

here's some pics with the new rims:






edit: Put in some Bilstein sport shocks, Vogtland springs, H&R swaybars front and back. EBC red stuff brake pads. Formula 1 Tints.
(Also have Goodyear F1 asymmetrics on now. Michelin Pilot Precedas wore down after a year and one track day. good none-the-less.)
edit: Redstuffs were a bit cooked after hampton, now have Pagid RS29 yellows.
edit: Pagids too noisy, now have Yellowstuffs

The stilts look is not a function of the rim size as long as you have the right size tyre. It's due to the ride height.

Fix that and you've got an even hornier looking S4 :)

I the its because the REs have lips on the rims, standard S4 rims have flat faces which always make rims look they are bigger than what they are.

yeah, but the OEM rim almost had an optical illusion of being bigger due to the flat face and spokes going right to the lip, made the gap between rim and arch appear smaller.
totally, right height would awesome to lower, but not a possibility right now.

edit:

you just beat me to the 'flat 'face' comment golfboy :-[

That's looking fantastic! The wheels, mirrors and silver paint go together nicely...

Are those the same wheels you got off trademe? :o

1999 S4 Avant dark green 90k bought 2 years ago so don't know of any mods.

No photo as car is dirty all the time hacking between Nelson - Blenheim.

No mods that I know of but I'm very happy with it. Brilliant for what I need.

Wouldn't mind a little less understeer though, and the MTM chip sounds interesting.

Need new tyres this year. Lots of tight corners and icy bits.

Any thoughts on best choice welcomed

Cheers

if losing a wee bit of clearance isn't too much of an issue for you then a set of new springs and suspension coupled with a stronger sway bar could correct quite a bit of the understeer. an eibach spring and bilstein combo worked really well for my A4. coilovers would probably be overkill if you're just using it for cruising. i've recently just set my front wheels close to zero toe-in, haven't had the chance to push hard yet, but does seem a bit more responsive. feels like it's understeering less but could all be wishful thinking. :-\

not sure what your tuning options are down there in regards to chips or remapping. do you ever take the car north? revo is in mt maunganui, they can remap the chip in the car while you wait:

a few other folks seem to be singing the praises of www.chiptuning.co.nz but they're in auckland.

I have a 2001 1.8TQ Avant Le Mans. No mods but it is a great package as is. The photo below was taken a couple of days ago on Waikare Rd driving between Auckland and Tauranga.

Looks like a Regular A4 1.8t Quattro Avant to me? I thought Le Mans A4s came with Body Kit Chip Exhaust and BBS RC Wheels

Nope, no std BBS or body kit on lemans.

Lemans gets 1/2 Leather (option for full), 17", Quattro GmbH suspension, white dials, different steering, MTM stage 1, CD Stacker, Spoiler (sedan), S4 seats (prior to recaro), Alu dash trim, stainless trim on exhaust and a few others i cant remember.

The Lemans was and still is rated real well by all the Audi dealers. Its a sportier drive than the B6. In tight twisties, its got more natural balance than by B5 RS4, but obviously lacks the RS'4 extra HP.

Here is my Lemans (random shots), after then adding BBS and Body Kit, Miltek rear exhaust.
