Carbon fiber as aesthetic improvement is a common theme at the highest level of the Audi brand. There are whole styling packages for cars like the R8, RS 6 and RS 7. So why not cars like the A3 and S3 sedan? Turns out Audi Accessories (Audi Original Zubehor to those of you in Europe) has the answer to that question. More…

It is officially the holiday gift-giving season and as such it’s about that time for our annual Holidayg Gift Guide for Audi Enthusiasts. Each year this website endeavors to piece together a perfect gift list for those with a passion for Audi. Items on this list may range from a couple of dollars to several thousand, from easily purchased locally to complex hoop-jumping involved. Some may be obvious Audi-branded goods, while others simply follow a similar philosophy like Audi ultra lightweight design, the latest technology, impressive engineering or tailored customization akin to Audi Exclusive. Whatever the case, we think most any enthusiast would be happy to have any item from this list. We do hope you agree and further, would like to wish you a happy holiday season no matter your spiritual engine. More…

Driven: 2016 Audi S6 Sedan (Europe)

by on 25 November 2014 in Reviews & Road Tests

When it comes to performance Audis, we consider the S6 and its lineage to remain the brand’s “true north”. Over the years, things like consumer tastes change. Badges move to new nomenclature, supercars get launched and are subsequentally driven by super heroes, Avants become passé to some, while 4-door coupés prove lower slung and more sultry. Even through all of this, the S6 sedan remains, steadfast in its mission of bringing supercar challenging pace to the ever present form of a four door executive sedan. It is the model by which audi can measure its direction as readily as that little engraved “N” on your compass will help you find your way in a dense forest. More…

This week, Audi is pulling the wraps off of its updated A6 and A7 range at the Los Angeles Auto Show. While these cars may appear to be benefitting solely from a mild cosmetic mid-lifecycle freshening, we recently went to Germany in order to take a look. What we learned there, and while driving this Audi A6 2.0 TFSI, is that the updates are more than just skin deep. More…

SEMA Show week is finally here and as such we’re publishing the finale (for now) on our Project S7 as it received a complete makeover for this iconic show.

Here is where we this amps up, teaming carbon fiber components from no less than four companies in order to make for one cohesive look. More…

Project S7: Wrap & Vinyl Work, Round 2

by on 29 October 2014 in Project S7

The exterior appearance of a vehicle is a very personal thing. When our Project S7 went to SEMA last year, the car went with a Charcoal Matte Metallic wrap from Avery Denison. The beauty of a wrap is that it can be removed and replaced with relative ease, allowing us to completely change the look drastically for SEMA 2014 with minimal wear and tear on the car.

Project OE A3: Suspension, Wheels & Tires

by on 28 October 2014 in Project OE A3

The thing about starting with a somewhat basic car like our silver Audi A3 is that visual changes have so much more of an effect. Upgrading wheels and suspension on an Audi S or RS model and you’ll make a change. Make the same upgrades to a run-of-the-mill A-car and, well, you trigger a revolution. […] More…
