Not too long ago, Ralph picked up this A4 built by his good friend David. The car is fitted with a BagRiders air-ride kit with adjustable AirLift struts along with some Hardlines by Swoops. There is some work under the hood as well. A Garrett GT2871R turbo feeds the 1.8t along with a Racetec front mount intercooler. A 3 inch ATP test pipe to a 2 and 3/4 inch Milltek catback handles the exhaust out the back.
Ralph is slowly, but surely, making the car his own. The front end was cleaned up by some fender work and a new bumper cover. The new paint makes for a fresh but subtle addition. The most noticeable change has been to the wheels. A set of staggered AutoStrada Modenas were purchased only to be immediately torn apart. Originally a face-mounted set of wheels, they were reassembled as a sandwich mount along with moving the rear barrels to the front and front barrels to the rear. Thus, making the previously 17×8 & 17×9 setup a square 17×9 all around. All while still maintaining the staggered look by having 1 inch lips up front and 1.5 inch lips out back. The fully polished finish on the wheels really brings out the details as well.
I recently met up with Ralph to get some photos of the new setup but due to time constraints and lack of daylight we were confined to the driveway. Either way, I still was able to get a few in before the sun went down. Check it out.

Next Sunday, April 7th, we will be hosting a gathering in junction with Hardparked.com. So if you’re in the area come grab a smoothie, check out some cool rides, and hang out. FRENCH will be in attendance selling HardParked T-shirts, ILE beanies, and stickers.
Fender rolling was never intended to be a service Matt and I provided for the community, only to close friends, but as word of our abilities spread it has become more than a trade but an opportunity to contribute to the low and slow community and build relationships.
