Rallye Red B7 A4 DTM on Air


This month’s featured ride is courtesy of photographer Brandon Bailey¬†(@brandonbaileydp) and is a super clean 2008 Audi A4 modified to have OEM DTM bumpers, 3SDM006 Wheels, APR goodies and Airlift Air Suspension owned by Izzy who goes by @rallyered_b7 on Instagram. The car was originally silver, but repainted to be Rallye Red as part of his extensive list of modifications.


What I like most about this car is a nice mix of OEM parts, performance parts, and “show” parts, giving it the full package – it also has great attention to detail, such as the custom matching RS4 foglight covers and grille. Performance wise the owner upgraded to APR Stage 2+ which consists of a tune, test pipe, intake and high pressure fuel pump. To round out the performance upgrades he added an AWE Quad Tip exhaust, RS4 Sway Bars, and S4 front brakes.


While the car certainly has plenty of go, it has some nice exterior upgrades too – most notably the 18×9.5 3SDM wheels that were powdercoated vintage gold that have just the right amount of poke thanks to 15mm spacers and an air-ride setup with Airlift V2 autopilot management.


Inside, the car has more modest upgrades including a boost gauge and carbon fiber trim, but the trunk was finished beautifully showcasing the polished air tanks yet retaining some functionality/storage in the rear.

  1. new to your site. great place for ideas. owned a 2003 A4 avant 3.0, 2004 passat wagon and currently 2008 A4 sedan. that red was color i always thought of getting, just awesome color!
    i thought you had to upgrade your engine to use a high flow fuel pump. true?

  2. @Andre – I can answer that for him…no need to upgrade your engine, but you’ll want a new tune when you upgrade the fuel pump so it can take advantage of the capabilities, which APR calls Stage 2+ and GIAC calls something else but has a similar program.
