With a new car, there’s often a baseline of modifications you really try to do right out of the gate. Window tints certainly qualify. Just getting this project up and running, adding tint to this new S3 sedan wasn’t just an aesthetic improvement but also a functional one. More…

When Audi launched the B8-based A4 allroad, it made a fundamental change to the allroad game plan. Not surprisingly, most allroad owners with sporting intentions wish to lower their cars. More…

Every time another new Audi gets launched without manual transmission or station wagon gets dropped from the lineup here in North America, we hear the same thing. There’s a question of enthusiast bona fides for those who choose Audi’s product mix. Those who plan these cars are also tasked with selling more and more and […] More…

We’ll admit it. We’re fans of the sleeper concept. Take an unsuspecting car that intimidates no one and upgrade the car’s performance in order to transform it into the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing. Such is the plight of this rather ordinary looking A4 allroad. More…

Now in its fifth year of existence, Early Edition is a place where trends are set. Organized by the same group behind Edition 38, Early Edition brings many of England’s most extremely modified Audi and Volkswagen models to Northhampton, and as usual, the Brits do not disappoint. Much of what is on display here will be making the trek to Austria for Worthersee in just a few week’s time. More…

One of our favorite events of the year to report on must of course be the RS Treffen. It seems bizarre that a show we’ve never attended and that Audi doesn’t officially display at would rank near the top, but you can’t really argue with the premise. In short, Germany’s biggest performance Audi groups Audi RS-Club and RS-quattro converge on the Audi Forum Ingolstadt with a truly impressive mix of the coolest Audi cars. All sorts of fun ensues.

We’re on our way to the Audi sportscar experience […] More…

Much like Essen, Germany’s other big show focused on the aftermarket, trying to find a direct equivalent elsewhere in the world is a bit difficult. Sure, there are “auto jumbles” that cater to vintage cars like Hershey or Carlisle, and there are trade shows like the SEMA Show where company’s display their parts in a trade […] More…

While in Geneva, Switzerland at the Geneva Motor Show, Fourtitude editors had the chance to join a group interview with Audi’s new head of design Marc Lichte.

Fourword: Making the Case for a Volkswagen Group Restoration Facility in the U.S.

by on 15 April 2015 in Columns

Given the relatively small number of Audis exported to America during the 1970s and early 1980s, and also the fact that there really weren’t any Audis to speak of during the 50s and 60s, the following for vintage Audi models in America is markedly thin. Parts for early cars, even those from the more popular […] More…
