Greetings! As I have done with every other vehicle I have had, I am starting a timeline thread to help me keep track of progress. I am coming out of a 2015 Audi A4 Premium Quattro manual. I originally wanted an S in manual and Pure White / Marrakesh Brown but there is apparently only one left on the East Coast and the dealership in Virginia will not trade it to my dealership, forcing me to revert to Titan Black interior. Oh well; here you go!

looking forward to seeing what you do with it. You've had some nice past cars!
Thanks! I stayed pretty tame on the A4 because it was a lease. The Alltrack may be a little more extensive simply because I am losing a bunch of features that I have been used to. That, and VW stuff is cheaper than Audi stuff, haha. I will say one thing, it will not be bagged or lowered.

I'm just glad you're not getting out of the r32, I was a little worried there.
You should know better! It'll be nearly impossible to let that car go. In two days, we will have had it for 6 years...I will need to replace it as a daily someday but never get rid of it.

I bet this one will be paint corrected and opti-coated in less then 10miles #beardeddetailerftw
I have instructed my dealership to not touch it other than a Pennsylvania inspection since it will be coming from Maryland. Hopefully the Maryland dealership didn't scratch it up badly but nothing I can't take care of. My dealership has also offered to swap front bumpers with one on the lot with no bumper holes. Perks of having worked there..I didn't even ask for that. :)
