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:

Very nice man, looking forward to seeing this in person!

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

Awesome!

It'll be nice to finally put a face to the name :thumbup::beer:
Definitely!

Welcome to the 4.2 C6 club! :beer: :beer:
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!

:eek: stereo pics
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. :thumbup:

Awesome Jordan!

I just got back to the office after my honeymoon, seeing these photos made me smile for sure.

As always, I appreciate the kind words :heart:

See you in Georgia :p
Congrats and welcome back to the grind :thumbup:

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.

looks awesome man! need to get my wheels back on and clean the car up now lol
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)?
