whoa whoa whoa

Is this what I think it is? A light sensor that auto enables headlights on a 850?!

Yes.

I have it installed currently in my 850R and have found it to be far too sensitive to light across the entire range of the sensitivity setting.  Sometimes when the sensor ends up having modern headlights shine onto it (like lifted trucks that are oncoming, or vehicles turning into the oncoming lane from sloping side streets) it will completely shut off the headlights momentarily.  I need to either modify the electronics or tint the window that the sensor is behind to make it useful.  If it actually worked well it would be cool.

I had no idea what it was until I saw the back of it. The shape of the grille eluded to it being an Audi, but other than that, it's pretty homogenous.

Congrats though! lol

My pics suck and it does look pretty homogenous from that angle. I think part of the reason is because the car came with a black optics package, which blacks out all of the badges, trim, etc. It looks more like an Audi without the package. Also, the front end definitely needs a lip (which is on order), and I'm not a huge fan of the wheels, so those will need to be replaced. But it's AWD, has a turbo v6 with 356hp and 369tq, and a red diamond-stitched leather interior. It hauls ass. Interior pic below, plus some better pics from google, including without the black optics stuff.

Dang; I've been researching the B8.5 S4 (MY 2013 to 2016) used market and you go out snag a brand new B9?!!  Let us know how you like it.  Going to leave it stock for awhile I assume?

Maybe you could hook us up with a VAG sub-forum on VS?  Seems to be plenty of interest..?  :a-farmboy:

Ah yeah, the contrasting bits help a little bit. I mean it still looks good. I've always been drawn to Audi because they don't over-design their cars. They're one of the few that have kept the lines of the car simple and without a bunch of doodads. 

My B6 Avant is probably the one I miss the most. Such a fantastic car. Too small for a family of 3 with a dog, and now much too small for a family of 5. 🤷‍♂️

I love it. It's the perfect combo of sporty and luxury. I'm gonna make some basic changes like wheels, front lip, and possibly springs. A tune is definitely planned - stage 1 tune bumps the power to 428hp and 567tq 😮.

Changed the audi grille emblem to chrome and added a CF front lip. The front bumper sucks without a lip, and the front grille just looks like a black void without the chrome emblem. Perfect now IMO.
