My new toy to work on, I miss modding since there isn't much I can do on my RS. I knew eventually I would need a new daily driver to replace my rusting 16 yo E320. Always considered an A4 because I loved the Mileage I had on my old A5 (32 mpg highway), and it wasn't too big yet can carry more than just 2 people. I initially was going to just by out my mom's 2014 Ice silver A4, but then saw the comp+ and it had pretty much everything I wanted. S-line interior with piano black trim, black headliner, alcantera, FBSW with larger Paddles, gloss black exterior trim, and a unique front bumper with front parking sensors. Not to mention it came in Daytona Grey, a color I always wanted.
I purchased the car from Audi Wilmington in Delaware. If anybody is considering purchasing a new or used car, it was definitely worth the 3 hour drive. The sales team there are excellent and they work to get you the best price, and it was the best price by far when compared to other dealers. It's no wonder Teky got his R8, Mops got his SQ5, and Nputer got his S5 all from there. Some of the notable people there are Tommy Mihok, Tom Rogers and Tyler Bye. Mihok got me connected to Rogers who discussed the pricing options, and I dealt with Tyler directly for all the smaller details. Those guys are awesome and they are very easy to work with. In fact when I drove down with my mom, she ended up getting a new A3 as well. Was nice driving 2 brand new Audis together up 95N!

Thanks to @[email protected] for sourcing all the new parts (Except wheels, used tires, AK and Cr-15, and lights) at great prices. Some of these parts like the TDI comp+ valance I don't know how he found it, because that's gotta be one of the rarest A4 parts out there. I don't even bother with other vendors anymore, he's that good!
