      For model car collectors, 1:87 is a very small but highly detailed scale and Germany's Herpa is manufacturer of one of the most detailed lines of very small cars. In as much, we were excited to see the German company release their take on the Audi RS 3 Sportback.

Well if that wasn't enough forbidden fruit for you, we may have found enough to tip the applecart. Seems the same rule applies ...
    3. Choice Gear: Carbon Fiber Business Cards



      Looking for something to set you apart from every other guy dropping a card in the free lunch jar at Chipotle or when exchanging info with top executives? Look no further than this card made from real carbon fiber by Carbon Fiber Designs.

    4. Choice Gear: Apple iPad2 Launches During Busy News Week



      While we were on the ground in Geneva this week for the annual motor show we weren't overly surprised to see the Apple iPad integrated into futuristic car concepts like the back seat of the Audi A3 Concept or the front seat of the Volkswagen Bulli. Just how to integrate Apple's tablet and others like it has been much on the minds of the forward thinkers in the electronics labs at Audi and its parent the Volkswagen Group. However, ...
    5. Geneva 2011: Swag Alert - Audi in Scale, Watches, Clothes and More



      Have a thing for scale model cars? Not concerned about wearing too many pieces of Audi flare?.... Same with the Europeans. One of our favorite aspects of auto shows on the Euro side of the Atlantic are the fixation on swag. Standard issue for a car company show stand is a brand store. The theme carries over in the tertiary halls of the venue where model ...
    6. Choice Gear: Custom TAG Heuer Monaco LS by Bamford



      Fixated on Audis of the Titanium Package variety? Looking for the perfect accent? We may have found the perfect answer. Bamford, the company we featured a while back offering custom TAG Heuer Monacos, has announced they'll now be adding their own touch to the new TAG Heuer Monaco LS. For no doubt a healthy premium, Bamford wraps the LS' body and chain wristband in a military grade PVD coating for that murdered out look. Check ...

    8. Choice Gear: Oakley Plaintiff's Offer New Take on Classic Aviator



      Ever since their involvement with Audi Sport several years ago we've been fixated on Oakley eyewear. We especially dig Oakley specs when they can do double duty as sport glasses and classy shades because it's hard to wear wraparounds with a suit. As a result, we've been fixating on their new Plaintiff sunglasses. These new Aviator style glasses offer a clean and modern take on a classic design and ...
    9. Choice Gear: Urwerk UR-110



      In choosing goods and often watches to share with our readers as 'Choice Gear' we usually try to stick with the Audi theme or perhaps something that compliments your Audi in some way. Alas, when it comes though to the Urwerk UR-110 shown above we can only offer that the timepiece is one cool-looking watch and also one that's got a name that resonates with us.

      "Ur quattro" is the term most commonly affixed to ...
