Dion I. "02' Audi A4 1.8"


On the righteous path! Dion's swift family sedan! We just Love it! Reiterating, Loving the quality and diversity here at GRIPSET, we were happy to see Dion's car willing to take part in what we all do. What a brilliant A4 we look at today. A German auto, well done, backed by a turbocharged engine potent enough to guide the lead footers into serious trouble on the open road. Audi is known for quality, and their newer platforms have made it a win-win. Just take a look at this gem with the proper supporting mods making it "double-duty" machine. Visualize, the best of both worlds in one, now register that with Dion's Audi, all business Monday to Friday and fit for any show over the weekend.  What a fresh, fitted and functional whip!


My motivation
It all started when my wife, Angeline, and I started to expand our family. We had our second child on the way and realized that our BMW M3 in a Daytona violet color was going to provide challenges with all the necessities needed for the little one.  We then began our search for the right car to fit our lifestyle. After many years in the JDM scene, I felt all the cars were beginning to look similar. Therefore I decided to explore opportunities in the European market. At the time, the common make of choice in the DTM scene were BMW’s and the Mercedes Benz.  Once I saw the Audi, I knew it was my next challenge.  My guidance for my continued work is to “innovate and never imitate, build a car for yourself and not for everyone else. Individualize yourself from others.

  
Future Plans
After much time spent on the Audi, I believe I have touched everything. Some considerations that I am currently focusing on are a full re-spray which could possibly bring back a candy color or select a classic matte gray or white. As for the bodylines,  I would like to go wide on the body like me. Not just by arching the flares but implementing the DTM Fenders that are seen on touring cars. (How sick would that be?) An ideal theme for the interior would probably be a double-stitch diamond theme that touches the seats, door cards and dash.
