Many of you may know Jeremy as JOS4AUDI on Audizine or Instagram, but I’ve had the privilege of meeting Jeremy a few times in-person at Southern California car events like the Big SoCal Euro, TAG Motorsports open house, Targa Trophy, and HRE Open House. Every time I met Jeremy, he told me how much he missed his B7 S4 – he had a monster of a B8 S4 that was pushing 500 HP at the time, so I thought he was crazy for missing a slower, older car, or maybe just being nice and making small talk with a B7 owner like myself…but he wasn’t kidding, and several months later he acquired a 2008 RS4, getting the best of both worlds – the body styling of the B7 (but enhanced with a factory widebody) he missed, but with better performance and handling courtesy of the 4.2L FSI engine that is shared with the base model R8 and packing 420 HP stock.
As a previous owner of a B7 and well connected car enthusiast that has built an allroad, Q5, several S4s, and other cars I’m probably forgetting, Jeremy wasted no time getting his RS4 dialed-in, including several sets of wheels from his friends at AG Wheels to tide him over before his custom, forged three piece 20×10 ET10 F520 steplip brushed copper wheels with polished lips were built. The finish came out incredible, and Jeremy had the wrapped in 255/30/20 Sumitomo tires and then dialed in the stance courtesy of H&R Coilovers, rolled fenders, and some custom painted Porsche Maritime Blue calipers to make everything pop.
The rest of his mod list is very OEM-plus, just how I like it:
- OEM R8 oil cap
- OEM Euro RS4 flat bottom steering wheel
- OEM E-code Headlights with 6000k bulbs
- OEM Porsche 991 coolant cap
- Black front and rear emblems
- Matte black window trim
- Gloss black grille trim
- Color matched rear trim
- ECS Tuning Lamin-X fog covers
- ECS Tuning LED tails and red Lamin-X
- Kenwood head unit
- All upgraded bulbs
- Custom cat back exhaust with matte black tips
- AFE air filter
- 30% tint all windows
Jeremy paired up with Southern California photographer Randy Goco to have these professional pics taken, so thanks to Randy for sharing these pics – you can follow him on IG as @itsgoco or check out his website here: http://www.gocophoto.com/.
Jeremy would like to thank the following people for helping out with his build: TAG Motorsports, AG Wheels, getyourwheels.com, and most importantly his wife for putting up with everything, lol.
