    1. Audi R18 ultra Completes Monza Test + Photos & Video



      Audi Sport just finished a test at Monza and we're finding photos and video popping up online depicting the event. First up (as seen above) are photos from the Balang Project blog.

      The blog has a whole collection of shots in addition to the one above and in them you can clearly see some changes in the car's design. First and foremost is the side window design and maybe even driver position ...

    4. New Jason Statham Movie "Safe" Sure to Include Some Audi Q7 Action



      We've just stumbled across the trailer of the latest Jason Statham movie (thanks Chris Onefastaudi) and the preview confirms a bit of Audi action in the film. Of course Statham isn't new to the Audi brand, with his Transporter series of films, his narrator's voice on Audi's 'Truth in 24' documentaries and his own S8 and A8 ownership. Still, it's nice to see the brand sticking with the ...

    6. Tales from the Dark Side: But does it work?



      As of this writing, I've had the mustang for a few thousand miles and the car is still pretty stock. So that begs the question, is the car actually fun to drive or is it strictly a numbers car? This installment will review what it's like for a German car fan to own something so strongly American.

      My natural automotive proclivity is towards a balanced driving experience over something ...

    8. Photo Gallery: 2012 New York Auto Show



      As major auto shows go, the 2012 New York Auto Show was a bit of a write off for Audi. There were no world or even domestic debuts for the brand. Maybe it was timing or maybe it was simply importance of this event for the brand but the lack of new models stood in stark difference to major shows like Frankfurt, Paris, Geneva or Detroit where Audi table scraps are sometimes more than other ...
    9. What Happens When a VW Owner and Fan Goes to The Dark Side, Pt II

      So after about 3-4 days of looking and thinking, I decided that the mustang GT was my car. I started going to all the Ford dealers I could find in my area to try and purchase a base model car with the BBK. Well, there were none in my area. All the BBK cars I had access to were premium package cars that were just more than I wanted to spend. I mean, in a 3 state radius, there wasn't a car available that fit my requirements. So I ordered the car directly from the factory.

      I never ...

    10. What Happens When a VW Owner and Fan Goes to The Dark Side, Pt I

      I often hear the term "dark side" when someone who is an enthusiastic owner of a car or brand suddenly changes teams and buys something from another brand. In the VW world, I have often heard this term used in reference to someone who buys something Asian. I think for most rational VW people, Asian cars are an object of respect, but not something to desire, in other words, not something that one can develop an emotional relationship with. And domestic cars? Meh, those are ok, but for ...
