    1. 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 ...
    2. 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 ...
    3. 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. ...
    4. Extremely Clean C1 Audi 100 2-Door Featured on German 'Youngtimer' Website



      Be it in the traditional side of the enthusiast scene or the air-ride equipped 'stance' side of the scene, a pervading trend in modified cars are clean vintage cars with an OE+ look. Take for instance this '73 100 LS 2-door featured on German vintage car website Youngtimer Scene. The rarity of a C1 2-door, combined with stunning bodywork and restored vintage mesh-style racing wheels probably had you at "hello", but just in case ...
    5. Ultimate Twin Turbo B7 Audi RS 4 Build Update on Eurotuner



      If we had to imagine the ultimate B7 RS 4 build, we'd likely not be far from the project currently built by Advance Technologies, HT Motorsport and EFI Express for owner Bryan Whitmore. Effectively Whitmore wanted a twin turbo 4.2 FSI engine from the C5 RS 6 swapped into his RS 4. And while that might be enough to satisfy most, Bryan and his burgeoning team are going so, so much ...
    6. Akrapovič Teases with Photos of New Exhaust Upgrade for the Audi R8 V10



      Those in the world of exotic cars and likely those car buffs beyond know the name Akrapovič. Known for their lightweight titanium exhaust systems that border on artwork, the team at Akrapovič have begun a tease of their latest product tailored to the Audi R8 V10. The shot above of an R8 Spyder is from the team's Facebook page and shots below were gleaned from ...
    7. Motor Trend Samples Supercharged STaSIS Audi R8 5.2 Challenge Extreme Edition



      MotorTrend.com has filed a driving report on STaSIS' most radical supercharger setup for the Audi R8 V10. Dubbed 'Challenge Extreme' Edition, this matte grey coupe was well loved the staffer who wrote the piece. Here's a sample.

      One more question came to mind as I rolled up the nearly pitch-black windows of the Challenge Extreme
      ...
    8. Via Fourtitude: Spy vs. Spy Audi A4 Avant Featured on Eurotuner.com



      On the tuning scene we've seen themed but not those based on a cartoon. Then came Eddie Rosovich's B6 Avant based on Spy vs. Spy. We're guessing the final product won't be for everyone but we tip the hat to Eddie for a thorough implementation with just enough hint of OE+ style. We ...
    9. Project TTS/SF: Audi Accessories Spoiler and Custom Silver Optics Package



      Words: Jason Crouch, Photography by Cole Kelly & Jason Crouch

      In our previous installment, we rolled down to the San Diego suburb of Vista, California to watch a new set of HRE wheels get built and fit along with a set of Goodyear Eagle F1s to our project car.

      For this installment were going full circle in the ...
    10. Audi A1 by German Tuner MTM



      MTM has released a few more photos of their treatment for the Audi A1. MTM's focus tends to be engine tuning, suspension and wheels so this car is free of any body kits though certainly has it's share of vinyl. More important is what's in store for the A1. For now MTM's website lists their popular BiMoto wheels ...
