      Well, I finally have the car together enough for some nice photos. Some of the old timers around this forum might remember me, I used to have a Black B5.5 Passat on Bagyards/EasyStreet Autopilot setup just about 5 years ago now.

      The new car is a 2006 Audi A6 4.2 S-Line, Black on Black, I bought it last June in Chicago, drove it down to GA where it sat for a while as I was figuring everything else out. Suspension was installed back in December, and then a few months were spent on the stereo (still needs some work, so no pictures of that yet).

      Before I get into it, HUGE thanks goes out to [email protected] for putting up with all my questions getting me set up with everything I need. I love this setup. Just got back from 1000 mile round trip road trip and the car felt great. I was cruising tucking tire and it drove smooth, just stiff enough to not rub over bumps, but still able to drive low. I would definitely recommend these struts

      Now for the info...current mods are:

      Suspension
      - Airlift Slam Series Struts (Front and Rear)

      Management
      - Accuair E-Level w/ Rocker Switch
      - (2) Viar 444c Compressors
      - (2) 3 Gallon Tanks

      Wheels/Tires
      - 20 x 9.5 et35 Carlsson 2/6
      - 235/30/20 Hankook V12

      Engine
      - Custom Exhaust w/ 4'' Double Walled Angle Cut tips

      Exterior
      - OEM S6 Black Optik Trim Front Grill
      - OEM Filler Plate custom painted by OEMPLUS Brilliant Black
      - Debaged A6 and 4.2 Logos (Audi rings coming off the back next)

      Interior
      - Black Suede Wrapped Headliner and Pillars
      - OEM S6 Black Overhead Lighting Consoles (Front and Rear)

      Stereo
      Arc Audio PS8 Processor
      Arc Audio KS1000.1 (2 - one for each sub)
      Arc Audio KS300.4 (2 - one bridged on midbass, other for midrange and tweet)
      Arc Audio ARC15 (2 - Subwoofers)
      Hybrid Audio L1R2 (tweeters)
      Hybrid Audio L3SE (midrange)
      Hybrid Audio L6v2 (midbass)

      I think that is it for now...all the management is hidden in the spare tire well, will get pictures of the trunk stereo and management once it get's cleaned up a little.

      I was down in Daytona this weekend for a show (Spring Break Nationals) and went out on the beach and had a buddy snap some photos, so here they are:

      Yes, currently planning on being there, hopefully with a completed stereo and a few new interior goodies in the works as well

      Thanks Mike, your car and Seans were pretty much my two main deciding factors to go with the C6, I love this body style on air!

      No pics yet, it's a pretty clean and simple install with a little bit of flare. The mids and tweets are in custom pods off the a-pillar, midbass in the OEM location in the doors (but we spent some time making the vented OEM Bose enclosre a nice sealed and deadened enclosure for better midbass response). Subs fire towards the back of the seats (which with 2 15s looks pretty menacing with the seats folded down). I think I have a few in progress pictures on my phone, I will try and get uploaded. Will probably have better shots in a few weeks once the install is done.

      See you in Georgia

      Congrats and welcome back to the grind

      Definitely looking forward to SoWo, I shot you an email about it last night actually, no rush though, whenever you get a chance, as I am sure you have some catching up to do on from being away.

      Thanks man! Your car was definitely a major inspiration for my urge to get a C6. Is yours still wrapped or changing the look up again for this year (I am guessing you didn't ever sell it)?

      Some new shots:











      ...and one preview of the stereo...when in the car with the seats down it looks a bit menacing to see 2 15s facing right at you

      Installed a couple lighting goodies

      - Ziza LED License Plate Lights
      - Ziza Pure Yellow Fogs
      - Tinted Bumper Reflectors
      - "Chrome" Turn signal bulbs (still light up orange, just to remove the orange reflection in the headlight housing)

      Then spent roughly 6 hours, washing, clay bar, polishing, and waxing her (finally, first detail on the car since owning it for exactly a year this weekend). Then went to a couple shows in Atlanta this weekend. One quick picture, saw lots of people snapping shots of it so hopefully will get some other good ones from the show:
