Sebastien Kirch, Instagram @whitecarswithsomeblack
2018 Audi S4 | Quebec City, Quebec – CANADA
Sebastien is a talented photographer from Quebec City in Canada. Not surprisingly given the quality of his work, he was selected to be “Mr. January” in the 2020 Audizine Calendar. We’re hoping to get him as a more active contributor to quattro Magazine as well and looking to feature this S4 in the upcoming issues. 

Parts on the car as of today include: EMD RS grille, EMD carbon fiber front lip, EMD carbon fiber trunk lid, ECS carbon fiber mirror covers, ECS carbon fiber rear diffusor, ABT height adjustable suspension and HREW FF01 wheels in tarmac black. 

Stephen Florio
2001 Audi S3 | Bayside, NY
Since this S3 was never sold in the USA, this is a Mexican car. It is a Salmon Silver respray with 3.2 VR6 swap with a Vortech V9 supercharger, with full custom header and exhaust, Kinesis K58 wheels, Tarox 6-piston front brakes, A8 rear rotor upgrade, Recaro A8 seats wrapped to match, suede headliner, and much, much more.

Richard Hess
2014 Audi S6 | Lancaster, PA
Richard’s S6 has its share of upgrades, including APR Stage 3 tune with RS 7 turbos, APR down pipes, AWE exhaust, black optic RS 6-look grille and more.

Holly Rush
2018 Audi S3 | Kansas City, KS
This is my Audi S3, with black optics and an APR Stage 2. I race offroad and also work in the automotive industry. This is my first foreign vehicle aside from my BMW motorcycle.

Dylan Morley
2018 Audi S3 | Montreal, Quebec – CANADA
This is my Ara Blue Metallic S3 sedan. I’ve added H&R lowering springs and Rotiform WGR wheels. As you can see, it handles winter weather just fine.

Kyle Walker
Audi A4 and Audi Q5 | Denver, CO
I’m involved with Audi Club Rocky Mountain and have been hoping to find a place for these pictures. This is from our Ice Driving Event in January 2019.

Joan Mariea
2019 Audi A4 quattro S-line | East Concord, NY
This is my first Audi. I have been watching them go down the thruway for 14 years in complete awe, just dreaming. I still cannot believe there is one in my driveway now. Every day when I get up, the first thing I do is look out the window to make sure it wasn’t all just a dream. I am already in love, more than I could have even imagined. I am still wondering though, what part of Turbo and quattro my husband doesn’t understand. He always says “take it easy out there” and I always have to reply “too late”! Haha. I can’t wait to experience a Buffalo winter with my new A4 quattro!

I’m Ashley and I’m a business owner. I was born and raised in Florida. I like my cars like I like my men, classy and simple.

2019 Audi RS 5 Coupé | San Francisco, CA
I work as a technical salesperson at a publicly traded cyber security company and drove around in my college car for over 10 years. It was time to treat myself so I bought the RS 5, but little did I know that this car would come with so many new friends. Let me explain.

I joined an Audi Car club called AGSV and made a ton of new friends with whom I chat every day and go on drives and to car meets almost every week. I was able to make many performance and aesthetic modifications to the car thanks to the help of AGSV (Audi Gruppe Silicon Valley). I can’t wait to continuing to find the limits of the platform and sharing what was learned.

Brian Hall
1983 Audi quattro and 1991 Coupe quattro | Chicago, IL
I’m a huge Audi fan/car fan. I’m also in the car business. I love fast turbocharged all-wheel drive cars. The ‘83 is basically stock, or what has been changed I have all stock original parts. It runs and looks great. I love driving it, but I don’t very often.

The ’91 started life as a Coupe quattro, but it’s been converted to European market S2 coupe specification… including 20-valve turbocharged I-5.

Shae Gillings
2010 Audi A5 3.2 quattro | Sarnia, Ontario – CANADA
I have been in love with the bodylines on this coupe since I first laid eyes on them. I finally had the opportunity to pull the trigger on the only Aruba Blue coupe available in Ontario at the time. There’s definitely an S5 or RS 5 in my future!
