42160 Audi RS Q e-tron - Mods and Improvements

Recommended Posts

Stock 42160 Audi RS Q e-tron looked very unfinished to me. So I made some improvements.

- Detachable Interior

The most glaring omission of the original set. Some seats and a steering wheel make the model so much better.

- Detailed Front End

When the stickers don't cut it. More detailed front end made of bricks.

It's great improvement!

To be fair, I am starting to get into Studio. Just for clarity about legal / illegal techniques and their application in Studio. Is it OK to connect system parts like 3794b with technic holes?

No worries, it was easy to check :sweet: Studio allows it.

It works fine. Parts won't be damaged overtime. But it is considered as an illegal technique for Lego.

More legal solution. But it looks much worse due to a gap caused by the studs at the edge.

It's both perplexing and distressing that TLG is OK with releasing a car without a steering wheel and at least 1 seat. :pir-bawling:

I'm glad you created this model so I made instructions for it. You can download them from https://bricksafe.com/files/mla2/other/42160 - Detachable Interior.pdf. Please feel free to share them on Rebrickable if you want.

I don't actually own 42160 nor did I build your model but I think the steps should work well.

@Romanista Connecting one stud in a Technic hole is NOT considered illegal building technique. Only putting a plate with multiple studs in a row of Technic holes is illegal. Check out the pdf on what is acceptable by LEGO's standards:
