Although I am not an Audi owner yet, I have been lurking to get more
info on the A4 1.8tq <manual trans> which I plan to buy when available.
I have done quite a bit of digging on aftermarket products and their
suppliers, knowing very well that I will be modifying the A4 as soon as
the motor is broken in. Last week I attended the SEMA (speciality
equipment manufacturers assoc.) show in Las Vegas and have some good
news to report to all that may be interested.
Abt, while enjoying a somewhat spotty past existence in the US, looks as
if they might be here to stay. Advanced Motorsport Solutions in Los
Angeles (I have no connection with them ,etc.) @ 310-559-7764 has become
an authorized importer of Abt. After talking with several of the guys
from AMS, I am confident that they will be able to handle the task of
representing Abt in the US. They plan to have a fairly extensive
inventory of the Abt products in Los Angeles, and will be working with
several european performance shops to set up a dealer network. Their
web address is: www.advancedmotorsport.com
Claus Ettensberger Corp. (800-776-0004), importer of AC Schnitzer,
Lorinser, Tech-Art, and other well respected tuning lines plans to be
importing an Audi-specific line soon, although they would not say which
Also, Total Audi Performance had a booth at the show, and I spoke with
them for awhile. They have quite a few interesting products available
and are taking delivery of their 1.8t A4 soon.
Anyway, this is what I have to report from the show. Since Audi is
beginning to make a comeback, we will most likely see more performance
products offered here. It also means that we will see more competent
representation of these products.
