    1. Choice Gear: 2011 quattro Fever Calendar Now Available for Audi Rally Enthusiasts


      Announcing a unique and very special gift for any Audi rally enthusiast. Fourtitude European editor David Corfield had a former life as a rally photographer for the Audi Sport UK team in the 1980s, and here, for the first time is a calendar with a selection of previously unpublished images from his days with the team. Showing all evolutions of quattro, from A1 through to S1 plus 200 (Group A), the calendar is a very special reminder ...
    2. Choice Gear: WRC Chronorally Watch from Edox



      We'll admit it. We have a bit of a watch fetish here at Fourtitude and we're guessing many of our readers do too. If interest in great design and interesting technology drive your passion for Audi automobiles then most likely this carries over to other elements in your life... perhaps timepieces. We're also interested in subtle pieces of flair in our wardrobe and lifestyle, ...
    3. Choice Gear: Build Your Own Audi Ur quattro with Printer & Cardboard



      We've stumbled across a little classic Audi love over on Tinypic.com in the form of an Audi ur quattro template. A red original quattro such as this one has been tearing up the screens in the BBC series Ashes to Ashes and that car apparently inspired this paper cutout template.

      The theory is simple.

      1. Go to TinyPic and download the highest resolution version of the car.
      2. Print with color printer ...
    4. Choice Gear: 'Audi quattro, the Rally History' Reviewed by Rally Sport Magazine



      Rally Sport Magazine has published a quick review of a new Audi rallying history book titled 'Audi quattro, the Rally History'. We featured the book in our 2009 Audi Enthusiast's Gift Guide and can't say enough good about it. John Davenport's cataloguing of Audi Sport history is made perfect accompanied by a forward from legendary ...
    5. Gran Turismo 5 Collectors Edition DLC Cars Revealed, Audi R8 V10 Chrome Line Included


      The long slow tease seems shortly at an end. Gamers and driving sim aficionados eagerly await the release of the latest and greatest evolution of the Gran Turismo franchise and its programmers at Polyphony have today announced a Collector's Edition at $99.99 SRP. Among the benefits of the Collector's edition is a voucher for five exclusive downloadable cars with custom liveries. ...
    6. AutoBild's Most Childish Comparison: Auto Union Silver Arrow vs. Rat Rod



      It's a PR nuisance: major magazine rings up the communications office looking to compare the latest, greatest offering with something else. Unless you win and win against something brag-worthy it's not really worth it. Given that, we wonder how Audi PR bosses viewed the pitch from Autobild to let a couple of six year olds pit their 1:2 scale motorized Auto Union Silburpfeil against a homemade rat rod of like scale.
      ...
    7. Choice Gear: monCarbone HoverCoat Case for iPad



      Let's say you've got an iPad and you're looking for something very light to protect it and don't want anything bulky like some rubber sleeve. If so, we may have found what you're looking and, even better, it will match that trim in your S4 or R8. Behold, the HoverCoat from monCarbone.

      Okay, it's not terribly cheap for what is essentially just a cover for your iPad. Then again, it's ...
    8. Bosch Launches Light 'Em Up Dyno Performance Meter App for iPhone



      Count OE parts supplier Bosch as the latest creator of an iPhone based performance meter app with the launch of their Light 'Em Up Dyno. The app itself is free though limited to measuring 0-60 mph runs unless you opt to spend $4.99 which unlocks other measurements such as hp, lateral Gs, acceleration Gs and braking Gs.

      The app features push features that allow you to share your runs on Facebook and Twitter and ...
    9. Choice Gear: Mykita Série Noire Aviator Sunglasses Perfect Personal Accessory for Titanium Package Types



      When it comes to sunglasses there may not be much cooler or more timeless than the typical Aviator theme. Ray-Ban started the trend but pretty much everybody makes a variation on the iconic theme and we're particularly fond of htese new Mykita Série Noire examples. Matte black steel frames and an evolved lens shape in mirrored finish make us want to pick up a set as we wait for those Titanium Package Audis to arrive. ...
    10. Coolest Garage of Audis This Side of Museum Mobile



      Jealous much? We certainly were after seeing a selection of photos posted over on RS6.com. A Taiwanese forum member by the name of Chuangs4 has posted shots of his garage and in about the most unassuming way that one does when one owns some of the coolest Audis known and likely the coolest garage in which to keep them this side of Audi's own Museum Mobile in Ingolstadt.

      How was the plug unassuming? ...
