Kurt Kajioka: 1999 Audi A4

Kurt Kajioka has always been a fan of the European auto scene, which is made evident by his first build.

“My first car was a VW Rabbit and I modded the hell out of it before selling it,” Kajioka recalls. “Really regretted it after it was gone.”

That’s when he decided to not only go back to his “roots” but also upgrade to something more luxurious. Enter the 1999 Audi A4. Sitting on Imperial Gold Work Zeast ST1 wheels wrapped in Federal Tyres 595, the A4 is also decked with loads of carbon fiber and a custom air suspension.

“This makes getting around here in Hawaii so much easier,” says Kajioka of the suspension parts. “I don't know why I didn't do this sooner.”

Additional plans for the A4 include a complete redo of its sound system and the installation of even more carbon parts.
