: allroad about to get some tweeks

been a while , thought id do an update really.

ha sthe allroad 2 months now in that time had cam belt done and new window regs,new 714's and n95, new secondary water pump along with various suspension sensors ... but .. all is good now (touch wood)

the car for a big lump moves ok too, but will be having a stage 1 or 2 remap done in the not so distant future..

the mods that have been done so far are

*402 mod - 25mm front and 22mm rear
*ALL boost hoses replaced with silicon jobbies thanks to samco
*custom induction kit with HUGE cone filter

and turned up today are my Genuine AUDI S8 20" alloys and hopefully before the end of the week my full cat-back miltek exhaust shall turn up !!

so busy busy week....

i have also fount out my allroad is an ABT edition which is cool but the ABT 18" alloys it came with just didnt look big enough!!!

here are a few pics and il update as and when the others are fitted.

and here are the wheels not on yet as i need 1 tyre

hope you like :D:D

I think your ABT wheels look better on this car than A8 ones will. Glad you have spare cash to keep mods coming in, i'm spending enough just to keep mine running at present... :huh:

You think?? I'm hoping the s8's will transform her !! Spare cash Is 1 thing but dedication is the key! Need a re-map an an iPod/iPhone thing so I can play me tunes

Here take quick look before link expires, few options here, I reckon ones on blue Allroad are much nicer....

Would 245/45/19 ET 35 with 15mm spacer fit the allroad... - AudiWorld Forums (

The blue one wheel are way way to common by me ! That was the obvious choice but the s8's came up I just couldn't say no as they are timeless and also look HUGE

06-01-2010, 03:03 PM
Well yeah, if good deal comes around then why not. Will you need spacers for them or are they same fitment as you now have?
Original twin spoke is type CF6 - 7.5x17; 5x112 bolts; ET25 offset right?

06-01-2010, 03:08 PM
The fitment is the same , but offsets off , I have some spacers il put on to give it a 25et so should work perfectly

06-01-2010, 03:12 PM
Nice, snap them up when you done and post a pic... ;)

No worries rekon it will be sorted by the weekend

right rubbish pics sorry better ones to come but here is 1 shot of exhaust and couple of wheels..

well chuffed with the wheels !! totally change the car!!!

the ABT 18's i took off were 8.5J ET35 with a 20mm spacer!! these are 45mm offsett with the same 20mm spacer but sit like 2-3mm from suspension leg !!

so on look out for ideally some 30mm spacers or at least 25mm to be safe .. no rubbing issues or anything but il be happier ... none the less AWESOME!!! and the fact they are GENUINE S8 audi rims to boot!!!!

what you think ????

miltek cat back exhaust

couple wheel pics

Damn, you were right, these absolutely fit the car! Well done, look very close to the arches now. I think 20" makes them look much better than 18 or 19" i've seen. Exhaust looks the business also.
Any more mods coming up? :o

Better pics tommorrow , other mods ???? Re-map coming as I had it rolling roaded and it made 275 bhp which I assume is due to it being an AS6 ABT special jobbie ... Il get her re-mapped by ab outside co pant which should give her 300ish bhp ... Also she will get a full detail get rid if the scratches and stuff , was thinking manifolds but that's apparently an engine out jobbie !! Il pass on that !! So with an exhaust a 5 bar fuel reg and a re-map I should be looking at 330-340 bhp !! That should do !!! But proper mods il prob do some drilled discs and convert rear solid discs to vented 4.2 v8 jobbies
