My 97 A6Q avant
« on: December 13, 2015, 05:08:06 PM »

On October 14th I picked up a 97 A6Q avant as my new daily driver. Reason being is that my daily UrS4 needs a ton of work done to it as I couldn't keep up with it and I needed a new daily driver. This is my 1st ever Audi with a automatic transmission which I'm not to fond of but the reason why I bought one with a auto trans because this will eventually become my step-son's ride in a few more years when he gets his drivers license.

Here a couple of pics I took the day I picked up the avant.

and so the modding begins

I just can't help myself! You know I can't keep this 100% stock! So let the modding begin!


So lets start with swapping out the interior wood trim.

This look isn't for me.


The start of the swap.






Got all the carbon fiber trim swapped in 8) all thanks to from my UrS4.


This is the last trim piece that I needed to figure out. What to do, what to do.


I decided to paint it universal flat black and it didn't turn all that bad.





Next is to get rid of this lousy steering wheel! (I didn't take a pic of the actual steering wheel but it looks exactly the same as this one that was in my old 93 UrS4)


This sport wheel is sooooo much better! This steering wheel use to be in my old UrS4.





Now to fix this eye sore!!!!



This looks tons better!!!! I swapped over this euro center tail from my UrS4.




Finally to take care of this uncomfortable rear seats!



Swapped in my old UrS6 avant seats. It's nice to keep around old parts because you never know when you'll need them! I will be swapping in my old UrS6 front seats but I need to save extra money (not sure when that will be) to buy back my old front seats and exchange these stock seats for it.

I borrowed my UrS6 wheels and installed new tires since it was time to take off the stock wheels that has Blizzaks on them.


I was able to get my UrS6 front seats back. I gave them to a friend as a payment for some work he did and I swapped him the front seats from this A6 plus cash for those UrS6 seats back. Gosh how much I love these Recaro seats!!!!!

Its been awhile since I updated this. Before winter I bought a 2nd set of wheels (wine glasses) and had my blizzaks installed on them. Around early December my A6Q avant bacame my wife's new daily driver since her car became too much to keep it on the road money wise. Just wasn't worth dumping more money into it since it was on its last leg.

Now ready for the winter.



Now that winter is over I swapped over the all season tires to these wheels since I really love the looks of these wine glass wheels.

Now looking good for the spring/summer/fall. The blizzaks will go on the stock 5 spoke wheels.
