The other day Kyle K brought in his B8 Audi S5 to get a major visual overhaul. The oem Audi S5 wheels aren’t exciting by any stretch of the imagination, which is why Sr Mod Expert Alan Wei was just the man to make a difference. Sr Mod Expert Alan recommended Kyle go with a set of Forgestar Wheels to give the car a more exciting profile, and an exhaust system from AWE Tuning to spice up the rear end and liven up the exhaust note.
An AWE Tuning Touring Cat-Back for B8 Audi S5 with polished tips was just what the doctor ordered. The AWE Tuning cat-back fills the exhaust openings beautifully and delivers a smooth, refined exhaust note with no unpleasant drone to speak of.
The tips are arranged with a staggered fitment so that the tips follow the contour of the car for a refined, tailored look.
The AWE Tuning logo embossed on each exhaust tip lets everyone know just who is responsible for the great sound coming from your tailpipes.
It looks great even from below, as every AWE system is a beautifully polished work of automotive art.
To give the S5 the look we were after, Alan recommended a 20in fitment for the Forgestar F14 Wheels. The larger diameter fills out the wheel arches nicely, and the super deep concavity really “makes” the look.
Check out how the Forgestar F14 wheels look from the side profile.
Check out how the concavity looks on the car from a few angles.
Needless to say, we’re huge fans of the end result here, and both Sr Mod Expert Alan Wei and Kyle seem just as pleased as we are. We hope you enjoyed the photos – thanks for joining us once again.
