Black & White B7 S4s – Double Double Featured Rides

John & Matt B7 S4My good friends John & Matt had an impromptu photoshoot last weekend, and they were kind enough to share the pics with us. They’re both pretty modest guys, so you probably haven’t seen many pictures of their cars before – but you should. Both cars are modded to the T with exquisitely chosen parts to bring out the best of the B7 S4 platform. Both have hit the nail on the head when it comes to mixing “show” and “go”, and both of these guys track their cars on a regular basis (and both on a seperate set of wheels & competition duty tires), and they both enjoy a good show or leisurely drive as well.

While the cars have much in common – matching 4.2L V8s and carbon fiber Vorsteiner hoods, to start – both Matt & John have taken their cars in different directions, and executed them brilliantly.

John is a self-admitted “wheel whore,” and while I’ve seen many sets of wheels he’s owned, from SSRs to Sportec to Enkei and many more, his latest and greatest are custom built CCW Classics in 18″ that push the limits of stance. The polished wheels are perfectly complimented by an otherwise understanded Ibis White exterior, which makes for a breathtaking combo. He’s on a static drop riding on KW V3 coilovers, and has a few other subtle exterior mods you might notice such as a Cupra R lip, light smoke Lamin-X headlights, and painted black grille & rear valence.

John & Matt B7 S4Matt on the otherhand takes pride in his “sleeper” status. While nothing by itself draws your attention that this car might be heavily modified under the hood (it is, with a custom LSD to boot), any Audi enthusiast can tell that his car isn’t stock, either. Matt has taken the approach that form follows function, and everything from the vented hood to the heavy camber he runs demonstrates this – so do his massive brakes and super lightweight Champion Motorsports/STaSIS wheels. I wish I had sound clips of either Matt or John’s cars, as they’re both running aftermarket downpipe & exhausts that make the V8 sing gloriously.

John & Matt B7 S4The difference between these cars illustrates why enthusiasts like Matt & John (and myself) enjoy modding our cars so much – you can start with the same car, and the same platform, and find multiple ways to achieve your idea of perfection. There is no one “right” way to mod a car, and as Matt & John illustrate – baby it don’t matter if you’re black or white!

John & Matt B7 S4Thanks guys again for sharing your pics. I had some fun editing the rest of em, I hope you enjoy!

  1. I enjoyed reading your write up. In simple text it captured the different philosophy of both owners. Also, pointing out that everyone has their own tastes and at the end of the day beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Although heavy and not the fastest thing around the B7 platform still remains my favorite.


  2. The white S4 was running the follow specs on his CCW Classics:

    Front 18×9.5 – 35 offset 225/40/18 Dunlop Direzza

    Rear 18×10 – 25 offset 225/40/18 Dunlop Direzza

  3. Beautiful cars, love them both

    Just curious, what rear bumper does Matt have? I’m looking to do the body of my B7 and that’s the rear I plan to get

  4. It’s the DTM bumper, it was an OEM option. I really want one too. You can get it from your dealer or ECS carries them for around $500: http://www.ecstuning.com/Audi-B7_S4–V8/Search/Free_Shipping/ES2539192/. You need to be careful ordering as there are several options available: with or without parking sensors, and made for dual or quad exhausts – the part number varies based on which options you select, so be sure you are ordering the right part first as return shipping is very expensive if you get the wrong one…

  5. Thanks Nick, appreciate it man

    Great blog btw, found it earlier and haven’t stopped looking
