“I fell in love the second I test drove it and I’ve been all about the Audi life ever since.”

Meet Edward Lizotte or Eddy for short. Eddy had been out of the modified car scene for a few years when he decided it was time to jump back in. He knew exactly what he wanted, an S4. So Eddy started his search, eventually flying down to Miami for a car which didn’t pan out. Not easily discouraged, he drove up to Tampa to look at another S4, it was a 2008 DTM edition in very good condition. After the test drive Mr. Lizotte knew he had found the one. To put it in his words, “I fell in love the second I test drove it and I’ve been all about the Audi life ever since.” His original plan was to keep the car stock, but the enthusiast in him couldn’t leave it alone. Eddy began to look for more performance after driving a few RS models at a local club event. He started with a set of LED tail lights, and then turned his focus towards the braking and handling. Eddy picked up a set of KW V3s and the rest started to fall into place. He tells us that his inspiration for the car comes from his friend Peter, who not only inspired Eddy with his own car, but also spent a lot of time helping him with the his S4. Eddy credits Peter with teaching him about VAG cars as well. After joining the East Coast Audi Sport Club, he feels even more at home, citing the great group of guys that are in the club as well. Eddy would like to thank a few people for their help and contributions to his project and passion, Peter for one, as well as the guys in ECASC. Foremost, he would like to thank his wife, Jen for supporting his habit. Check out Eddy’s mod list below, as well as a few photos. Enjoy!
