    Choice Gear

    Cool gear and goods for Audi owners.

    1. Choice Gear: AirStream Eddie Bauer Would Look Fantastic Hung off the Back of Your Audi Q7



      Maybe you think you're not quite the camper type but, then again, after considering an Airstream maybe you should think again. This long-running American camper company and its iconic aluminum hitch missiles have been the premium indulgence at the campground for decades and great new products like their new Eddie Bauer help to show how they're maintaining that rep.

      This 25-foot version of ...
    2. Video + MP3: Audi and Basement Jaxx Team for New A7 Commercial Spot in Europe



      We've just stumbled across Audi's latest A7 ad spot over on Prefixmag.com. The basic premise is an evolving CGI rorschach type of theme that evolves from brain eventually to the A7, emphasizing perhaps some of the thought that went behind the A7. It's visually very cool but even cooler because the soundtrack that goes with it ...
    3. 1999 Audi R8C for rFactor2 from Team RMT



      As driving sims go, the rFactor franchise hasn't quite garnered the notoriety of Gran Turismo or Forza. It's not on a console and that's likely the reason because in the PC-based online gaming community there is a large and very rabid following for the racing platform. One reason, we're told, is its realism and another must certainly be its open nature. Unlike GT or Forza where you might be able to decorate the livery of a ...
    4. Choice Gear: Gearbox Unobtainium Strap Edition Watch from Oakley



      Oakley sunglasses have long been preferred sunglasses of choice by Audi Sport and also in our offices and while we've lusted after many of their shades we've never really been won over by their timepieces. In our opinion their often more organic-looking design didn't translate well to the wrist. However, Oakley's new Gearbox Unobtainium watch is by no means organic and very cool. We've just found ...
    5. This iPad is Property of Audi and You Can't Have It. Dang!



      Our friend Scott over at the IAmAudi Blog also happens to be an Audi brand specialist at Audi Wilsonville in the Pacific Northwest. As such, his blog often features cool news from the dealer/distribution side of the Audi business. Case in point is his latest story on a new method of Audi marketing within dealerships via special branded versions of the Apple iPad.

      We're guessing our readers already know about the ...
    6. Choice Gear(s): Two Radio Shack Audi quattro Rally Cars, 1 Pristine on Ebay, 1 Not So Pristine on 4T



      If you were a kid when the Audi ur quattro was ripping up the rally scene then you likely remember a day when the toy designers at Radio Shack were a bit more worldly - pushing R/C cars like the Martini Porsche 935 or Audi's own quattro... well before the monster truck cheese peddled today. If you remember those days and care to revisit them, we've found just the thing(s).

      ...
    7. Choice Gear: Pirelli PZero Disk_O



      Given the subject matter of the new Disk_O chronograph, you'd think it would have come from a manufacturer such as Brembo given its casing made to look like a cross-drilled brake rotor complete with accenting caliper. Nope. Instead the piece comes from Pirelli as one of the latest entrants in the brand's PZero line of wearable goods. If you're into automotive-themed ...
    8. Choice Tunes: Audi TT Gets Mention in New Swedish House Mafia and Tinie Tempah Single 'Miami 2 Ibiza'



      We first became aware of British rapper Tinie Tempah several months ago after a recommendation by Esquire Magazine UK via their Twitter feed. Back then we downloaded a few singles and added him to our subconscious iTunes watch list. This month he's set off our radar again with a new single produced in collaboration with Swedish House Mafia entitled Miami 2 Ibiza. A very infectious club track with ...
    9. Choice Gear: Scalextric Top Gear Powerlaps Racing Set



      Check out the latest slot car racing set from Scalextric, an homage to Top Gear that replicates (to a degree) the BBC show's test track including curves with names like Gambon and Hammerhead printed on the track pieces. Looks cool and a great add to our 2010 Gift Guide watch list we've got going.

      So why not wait until after Thanksgiving and run this with the gift guide? Griot's Garage, stocking the set ...
    10. Choice Gear: iPad Users Take Note. British Magazine Invasion on Zinio including EVO, Top Gear and Octane



      Ever since purchasing an iPad earlier this year we've been quickly weening out our subscriptions to print magazines. Big piles of magazines were cool to a point but get old after a while, especially when traveling. Some magazines have opted for stand-alone apps and such but one of our single most used iPad apps is that of Zinio. Until Steve Jobs wakes up and adds a magazine newsstand of his own to iTunes we're more than happy to ...
