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…
