    2. Rendered: Stanced C1 Audi Coupe S



      Remember Rusty Slammington? Owner Mike Burroughs was an early adopter of in the stance scene with his chopped BMW 5 series that looked more WW2 P2 Mustang fighter than Munich family sedan. Rusty earned a life of his own on facebook though met at least a temporary demise in a garage fire. To replace Rusty, Mike picked up a clean 1971 BMW 2800 CS coupe and went for more of an elegant and tailored look. That car has been wowing ...
    3. Essen 2011 Photo Galleries and Wrap-Up



      Often compared to America's SEMA Show, the tuner-focused Essen Motor Show is really something more unto itself. Whereas the SEMA Show is really an industry only affair and with no day for a media push, Essen is there for the public, the car enthusiast and also there as a platform of PR for tuners... so yes, a day reserved for the media. Where you'd need to be a distributor to place an order ...

    5. Video: Choice Sights and Sounds of H20i 2011



      This past weekend we attended the enthusiast show H20 International in Ocean City, MD and filed a photo gallery of what we saw HERE. In addition to those photos, we also captured some video of two very cool cars (below). First up is a twin turbo R8 that seemed to like to cruise around the field with no rear bumper... all the better for viewing and hearing what it had to offer. The second ...
    6. H20i Closes Out the East Coast Show Season for Audi Enthusiasts



      If it's H20 International weekend then Autumn approaches. The last major show on the east coast enthusiast show calendar, H20i is always a great endcap for the season. The event is unique in its vacation locale within spitting distance of Ocean City, MD though this year saw a last minute move from the usual Ocean Downs horse track to a local Catholic school ground since the track's changeover ...
    7. Underground Racing Reveals New 1000hp Twin Turbo System for Audi R8 V10



      Back in 2009, North Carolina-based Underground Racing popped up on our radar when they went and placed a twin turbo system on the Lamborghini Gallardo Nera. Given the similarities between the Gallardo V10 and the R8 V10, we rang them up to see if they were considering an R8 kit. They confirmed they were and now the fruits of their labor are live and in the numbers on their website. There are four configurations, ranging ...
    8. Stanced B6/B7 Audi Sedan Thoroughly Built and Ready to Stir Debate



      Check out this stanced candy apple red 2002 A4 featured this month on Eurotuner.com. Given its many (and we mean many) modifications, SEMA show subtlety level and mix of many modifying styles, we're guessing most everyone who sees it will have an opinion on it.

      For the OE+ guys, the car sports a B7 nose conversion despite its B6 rounded tail and 2002 production ...
    9. New D4 Audi A8 Body Kit Invents "RS8" Look



      Though perhaps they've wished otherwise, every Audi enthusiast knows Ingolstadt's never affixed its RS initials on the backside of its Q-ship A8. Likely executives and brand managers don't think the raw performance nature suits Audi's big Q-ship though that hasn't stopped Germany's Hofele Design from taking a stab at it and with a very clean result. ...
    10. OSIR Design Releases Carbon Fiber-Rich Line for Audi Q5



      OSIR Design, best known for carbon fiber parts and trim manufacturing has released a line for the Audi Q5. And while the Q5 might not be immediately expected to be a platform for carbon fiber upgrades, we're liking the idea. Those looking for a more of an OE+ sort of aesthetic might skip weight saving items like a carbon fiber hood or the aggressive-looking carbon fiber grille, but since there's ...
