    Congratulations to cpop98ws6 for winning the February COTM spot!


    First I want to thank everyone for all the votes!
    The car is a 1998 WS6 Convertible A4, I bought this car in January of 2006 off a dealer lot in Allentown Pa. The car was bone stock with 52,000 miles on it. I am the second owner and I couldn't be happier with this car. Within a month of having the car I put a Magnaflow catback on and a SLP air lid, I wasn't planning on doing anything major to the car until I spun a main bearing in the summer of 09 (68,000 Miles). Since then I have been slowly upgrading every inch of this car. The car now has 72,300 miles on it and it see the drag strip about once a month, I put about 2,000 miles on it over the summer months. The car has went 11.51 @118 with a 1.57 60 ft and has 430 RWHP and 426 RWTQ.
