2001 Audi RS4 – Jeroen Jacobs


You should know some things before you meet Jeroen Jacobs. For starters, if you’re in a rush, never ask him if he’s built any VW or Audi project cars before. Before dinner, the chances are slim that you’ll be home!

The man behind J-Wheels in Belgium is a VAG fanatic, with his big list of former projects culminating in thisby way of a 3B Passat with polished Lorinser wheels. And then came a 3BG Passat embellished with Rial Daytona wheels and his first foray into air-ride.

Next, listed was a B4 Audi A6 with polished BBS A6 wheels. Before he returned into a Mk2 GTI with 17 BBS RS and a rollcage, it would make way for a 3C Passat on polished Benz rims, however. The genuine classics weren’t avoided either. At some point, Jeroen piloted a 1964 split-window VW Bus, soon followed by a 4F Audi A6 on RS4 wheels.

The RS4 rims enjoyed a special attraction for Jeroen, not given that they were special but because they were stolen during the 2012 Worthersee Tour!

The RS4 die was cast and the culmination of this extended list was the 2001 RS4 the thing is here, however. It currently shares garage space by using aAs the RS4 was in such a great condition, Jeroen chose to leave it as stock as you possibly can. But because he’s a genuine wheel whore, Jacobs couldn’t resist changing things up.

He tried several sets, but none captured his heart until he met Shiv from Diegn4Automotive in England. This meeting led to some Rotiform IND three-piece Monolook SuperConcave wheels. While he wanted something completely different as to what other people had fitted, these folks were perfect for his B5 RS4.chosen to polish the rims as well as spray the centers by having an anthracite lacquer to make them more unique.

Ensured people would hear him coming by fitting a Supersprint exhaust, but otherwise the 380hp V6 biturbo remains untouched, for now.., although since Jeroen planned to return to Worthersee 2013 with two other RS4s, he was confident the Avant would stand out.To obtain the perfect stance, Jeroen dedicated to KW Variant 3 coilovers that provided a compliant but controlled ride. However, the 19 wheels had made the stock brakes look rather puny, so a set of brakes were obtained from the later B7 RS4 and fitted to the older model. The eight-piston calipers were painted Lamborghini yellow to stand out up against the wheel centers. One more modification would come before his visit to Worthersee – bored in the long winter, Jeroen and friend Krick decided to wrap the body in Frozen Grey vinyl from Hexis. It has a pearl effect that changes color in sunlight, giving the car another eyecatching highlight to separate it from your other RS4 they might see. Not that these cars are a common sight anywhere, with his well chosen upgrades, this one can getsound system
