      WOW, that looks amazing! Did you do it yourself? I've been thinking about wrapping my Avant, but to have it done is quite expensive where I live (Canada) and I'm not sure if it's something I could do myslef.

      Also, would you mind telling me more details about the Mazerna polished and 3M pads you used. Which polishes and pads exactly did you use?

      I used Menzernas PO100S and PO85RD 3.02. Yellow and Blue 3M foam pads. On toughtest places I used also Menzernas white pad.

      Yes I wrapped it myself, it was tough job, but finally turned out good. I have played with wraps before so it was not new for me.

      Thanks for the info on the polishing.

      I'm assuming there was dis-assembly required? Did you take off the bumper, and things like the trim around the windows in the process?

      Where the adaptor and iPod is recessed in the glove box was that stock or did u do that yourself... If DIY man. Ingenious...good work. What kind of prep work was needed to prior to painting the fog light surrounds? What offset r u running?

      Adapter (AMI) was bought @ http://www.naviservice.com.pl/?lang=en it steals the MOST signal from the cd-changer in the glove compartment, adapter box was stucked behind the changer.

      Fog light surrounds were softly sanded with 400 grit paper. Offset is 32 on each wheel.

      Looks so clean! Love the subtle mods, the LMs look great. Gives me inspiration for my dads car, he just bought a black on black 3.2L S-line 2 days ago. Love the way the car handles and performs. The Haldex bites the road far better than the 4mo I'm used to. Even the exhaust note is perfect. Tame under normal driving conditions with a snarl when you get on it.

      A6 has torsen, not haldex. Haldex sucks if you ask me, I've had TT earlier.

      WOW....looks HAWt with the new summer shoes.
      What spec are those 20x10"...offset? Any rubbing. Did you have to roll the fenders?

    26. 05-14-2012 11:40 PM #26
      You inspire me man. I have a modified B6 Passat now and am wondering what to get in the next couple of years and your A6 leaves me speechless.

      Based upon the size,MIT may just do me to opt for an A6 as opposed to a A4. I'm 6"2 245lbs, do you think this car will accommodate a family of four?

      Offset is 42 on every wheel. Rear fenders rolled and painted, but that wasn't really necessary yet, airride is comig later, thats why. No rubbing at this point.

      A6 is much bigger than A4. Suits perfectly for four people, legroom at the backseat is very good.

      This is a really nice car.

      I'm looking at an 05 3.2L A6 right now in the US, going to PM you to see what you think about the cars. I'm new to Audis but these look too good for me to say no, I think.

      Hey duke.

      I was thinking about purchasing some 20s for my A6. Do you think I should play it safe with a 20x8 wheel or can I get away with a 20X9 and stretch the tire a little. I am currently running h@r springs that drop it only 1.6" around. Let me know your thoughts

      jMkV: 10x20 goes on every corner without mods if the offset is more than 40. Only 8" would look stupid.

      I'll take your word for it. Your car is looking great and from the look of your former projects you know what you are doing. I'll post pics of my new project on here soon.

      Finally got time and inspiration to change the front speakers. Also all new wiring was made.


      Damped encolosures with Dynamat Extreme and put some wool inside.



      OEM speakers are little... err poor?
