List: Ten Cool Things About The 2011 Audi A8

Oct 18

We just received our first 2011 Audi A8 a few days ago and although I drove this Audi at the launch in California seeing it again reminds me why it is without question the class leader. A tremendous amount of time went into the design of the new 2011 A8 and it really shows with no detail being ignored. Read some of the key technology / cool factors that are available in the new A8, i can’t think of a single one that I would not want. If you can think of anything that was left off this “cool things” list let me know I would love to hear what it is that you like about the new 2011 Audi A8.
Audi A8 Touchpad
Touchpad Tired of scrolling through the alphabet with a stupid wheel when trying to input a destination into the navigation system? Just write it with your finger. That’s right, the A8 learned to read.
Audi A8 Interior
Crafted Aroma You might not notice any particular smell when in the new Audi A8. That’s okay. A “dedicated nose team” has ensured that the driver will encounter no distracting or unpleasant smells. That means minimal leather tanning and no pesky chromium salts. (We hate chromium salts.)
Audi A8 Aluminum Spece Frame
Aluminum Space Frame The car’s structure is 25 percent more rigid than before, thanks to its design and use of aluminum. This also helps keep the overall weight down.
Audi A8 Full LED Headlight Swap
LED Lighting The A8’s all-LED headlights not only look cool, but they stay cooler and use less energy. The 76 individual LEDs make up the high and low beams, turn indicators, daytime running lights, and fog lights. The taillights are also LED.
Audi A8 Bang & Olufsen
Bang & Olufsen If the Bose sound system isn’t ample for your discerning ears, the available 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system should do the trick. Armed with a high-frequency, 180-degree acoustic lens, a “tonemeister” has tuned the sound to every individual seat, meaning optimum sound quality for each passenger.
Audi A8 Rear Entertainment
Movies Rear occupants can watch different movies at the same time. Up front, passengers can watch a DVD when the car isn’t moving. The sound system even has a movie mode.
Audi A8 Activating Internet
The Power Of The Internet With a data subscription, the A8’s MMI uses Google Earth navigation, complete with points of interest from Google servers. A 3G connection allows for RSS feeds, local weather, and fuel prices. The A8 can also serve as a wifi hotspot for passengers with laptops or wireless devices.
Audi A8 Interior
Comfortable Seating 18-way power seats are standard. 22-way power seats are optional. Two rear-seat comfort packages are available. We made sure to sample the five massage programs: Stretch, Wave, Knocking, Shoulder, and Lumber. Magnificent.
Audi A8 Rad
Driver Assistance Systems To increase comfort and avoid accidents, The A8 gets adaptive cruise control, night vision assistant with pedestrian detection highlighting, side assist (which alerts driver to vehicles in the blind spots), lane assist, and a new torque-vectoring stability control.
Audi A8 Pre Sense
Audi Pre-Sense When the A8 senses an imminent crash, it works hard to save your life and prevent injury, using automatic seatbelt tensioners, automatic emergency braking, self-adjusting seating position, automatic closing of windows and sunroof, and automatic activation of the hazard lights.

1995 Audi RS2 Avant – You Can’t Have it!

Apr 15

An article of just over 15 cars that “Uncle Sam Says No, You Absolutely Can’t Have” was just published by Wired , an excellent website that we try to follow daily! Some awesome cars made the list but one of the coolest was the 1995 Audi RS2 Avant 1995 Audi RS2 Avant ! Wired said “This bit of wagon-awesomeness is the RS2, Audi’s first “RS” (RennSport or “Racing Sport,” in English) vehicle. Based on the 80 wagon and built at Porsche’s famed Rossle-Bau plant, this beast would hit 30 mph from a standstill faster than a McLaren F1 road car. Zero to 62 came in a mere 4.8 seconds, thanks to the turbocharged 311-horsepower 5-cylinder engine. All that and you can carry a surprising amount of groceries. Alas, it is categorically ineligible for Show and Display because 2,891 were built — more than the 500 ceiling on Show and Display cars.”

Audi Clean Diesel – TDI Technology

Mar 31

Audi Clean Diesel TDI has been available world wide for some time and will be making its debuet in North America in April 2009. Knowing Audi has had huge success with Diesel and even applied it to there race program and are now on the 2nd generation race car development, I think we will be seeing alot more diesel.

Below is a digram of seven Truths About Audi Q7 clean Diesel.
Picture Description
1. If 33 percent of all vehicles driven were Audi Q7 TDIs, it would save approximately 350,000 Barrels of oil a day.
Picture Description
2. The Audi Q7 3.0-Litre TDI engine produces 137 foot pounds of torque per liter of displacement-far more then a comparable gasoline engine.
Picture Description
3.The Audi Q7 TDI engines common-rail injection system can inject precise amounts of fuel into each chamber up to five times per combustion cycle, which is the main reason traditional diesel clatter has been silenced for good.
Picture Description
4. The Q7 TDI with its 26-gallon fuel tank can drive more then 600 miles with out a fill up or a distance from Washington D.C. to Savannah Georgia.
Picture Description
5. In Actual real world driving, the Audi Q7 TDI will use up to 40 percent less fuel then comparable gasoline engines.
Picture Description
6. The Fuel to air ratio in Audis Q7 3.0 Liter TDI engine can exceed 140:1 in no load or idle conditions, which is one reason why TDI technology saves fuel
Picture Description
7. Each Fuel injector in the Audi Q7 3.0 liter TDI engine will open and close approximately 1 billion times over its service life.
Picture Description
I would like to mention the AdBlue that Audi will be using, if you open the fuel door of your Audi Q7 TDI you will see two portals; one is for clean diesel and the other for the AdBlue. AdBlue is a chemical solution that is introduced downstream in the exhaust system, the purpose: “To separate the remaining microscopic compounds of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and form the non toxic molecules of Nitrogen and Oxygen – both of witch are abundant in the atmosphere.
Picture Description
The AdBlue tank is separate from the Clean Diesel fuel tank and only needs to be filled and serviced every 15,000 miles. Knowing that Audi recommended service intervals are every 10,000 miles this coincides with regular service, so you should never have to worry about the AdBlue if you are going to your authorized Audi Service Department.

Audi and Celebrities // Audi Driving Experience

Nov 20

For the most part celebrities and pro athletes have always had the good fortune to drive nice cars and the car they drive is often a reflection of that car manufacturer in the market place (except for basketball players and Tahoe’s). Audi has become the car celebrities and the movie industry want to drive and recently pro athletes. We have to remember that this select group of people can afford to drive any vehicle they want and the car they drive represents them like everyone else. For a pro athlete, celebrity or actor to choose to drive an Audi is nice pat on the back, not to mention good press. Audi recently sponsored a pro soccer team and let them test the cars before taking delivery at the Audi Driving Experience in the snow, and the Audi’s performed flawlessly. We should all be proud of the Audi brand, especially if you own an Audi and if you don’t yet, make sure before getting your next car to see what Audi has to offer.

Depending on what Audi and what iPod Or iPhone you have will determine what cable you will use in order to connect the devise with the Audi interface. Above is a Sheet that will help with what cable you require with your Audi and your particular devise. You will have to be aware of the equipment level of the Audi and know if it has AMI with navigation or without. Failing to have the correct cable when interfaced with a iPod device and vehicle will cause your Bluetooth to be inoperative. Having the correct cable is only important if you plan on having the iPhone Bluetooth capable as well as the music interfaced.

Audi Q7 Diesel – TDI Quattro

Feb 11

“Are we Getting Diesel?” I have been asked this question more times then I can count and now we have an answer. The Q7 has been introduced with the potent 3.0L V6 TDI engine and it will be available in the United States very shortly. And for everyone asking “Why the Q7?” I have that answer too; because anticipated in late Fall 2009 the A3 will be here in diesel as well. So there you have it, whether you need a Sport Utility Vehicle with an estimated average 25 MPG or a ultra fuel efficient diesel A3, you have a choice; or you could always just get one of each!

The Greatest Audi Quattros Ever

May 26

By now you surely know the story of Quattro, Audi’s all-wheel-drive system.

You remember its beginnings with a small Volkswagen-built military vehicle called the Iltis, the way it changed rallying forever, how it’s proven itself on the racetrack so comprehensively that all-wheel drive has been banned in virtually every category, and the way the very greatest drivers in the world have used Quattro technology to run rings around pretty much everyone and everything put in their path.

When you read and digest all of that stuff, you sort of wonder why everyone doesn’t drive a Quattro. And when an immaculate Audi Sport Quattro rolls out of the back of a transporter right before our eyes, followed by a showroom-fresh RS2 and an RS4 that looks like it wants to head-butt anyone who gets within 20 feet of its bulging bodywork, you really start to get the Quattro bug.

If you want to understand where this crazy enthusiasm for the Quattro Way comes from, take a look at these cars, the story of Quattro told at high speed: Audi Quattro coupe, Audi Sport Quattro, Audi RS2, Audi RS4, Audi RS6 5.0 TFSI, Audi S4, Audi TT RS and Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI V10. Make sure to read the entire article from Inside line “Inside Line Full Article” with even more incredible pictures.

Audi R8 V8 vs: Audi R8 V10 (Exclusive Velvet Purple!)

Jun 8

I can’t believe how lucky I am to have such good friends. Last year my wife I went to the Audi Sportscar Experience and we met a great guy who just loved his V8 R8 and was waiting for his new V10 R8. Of course we kept in contact and when he told me he had decided on Velvet Purple, an Audi Exclusive I got excited. Here we are and the Velvet Purple Exclusive R8 V10 has arrived and I have a comparison article between his previous V8 R8 and the new V10… Enjoy!

A comparison of a 2008 R8 V8 (6MT) vs. a 2010 R8 V10 (R-Tronic)

I entered the R8 fold back in February of 2008 when I was fortunate enough to find a Phantom Black manual transmission R8. I had just spent a day at Infineon Raceway at a intro to the Audi Sportscar Experience. It was my very first track experience and was totally bitten by the bug.

From there, I attended several more sessions at Infineon Infineon all driving the V8 version. The V8 was certainly what you would call a “hero car.” The car seemed so well balanced that it made you a better driver. About the only complaint I had (and complaint is a strong word here) is that it felt like it needed a little more power in certain situations – like exiting some corners where you have a longer straight ahead. Part of this problem went away when we were given the chance to drive the cars with the first level of traction contro (ASR) turned off. Suddenly the car could get a little sideways, and the throttle wouldn’t cut back as much when the car thought you were out of control. The electronics would still make sure you don’t get totally in trouble, but it really seemed to open up the car.

Fast forward 2 years and now the V10 version is out. When I first learned this version was coming, I really didn’t think I would be interested. The V8 has more than enough power for an around-town car, and for the occasional track use, still perfectly adequate. And without too many other changes, I was hoping I wouldn’t have to have the new version. No such luck.

Back to Infineon we went, as the new V10 fleet had just arrived. Immediately the car sounded quite different. Much more formula-car sound compared to the deeper rumble of the V8. Our day started with an exercise “anatomy of a curve.” Now I had done this exercise a multiple of times in the V8, so I figured I knew what I was doing. The initial acceleration of the V10 was instantly noticeably more than the V8 and upon accelerating out of the apex, I nearly spun the car out as the power is significantly more than what I was used to in the V8. Wow, what a difference. It became very apparent that the V10 is a completely different setup than the V8 – in a very good way. Went home, called the dealer – time to order a new car!

So, the power is a major difference as well as the suspension/electronics. I am convinced that the level of electronic intrusiveness in the V10 is less than in the V8. When driving with the full electronics on in the V10 it seems to give the freedom that the V8 did with the first level turned off. Now this makes the V10 a car you need to give a little more respect to as it can get away from you. Take the electronics off and you need to give it even more respect. In day-day driving, it still retains all the civility that the V8 did. It’s still a comfortable car to drive around town, on a long drive, or on the track.

As far as the transmission goes, there has obviously been much debate on the R-tronic vs. the manual. Many have their own personal preferences and both transmissions are great. I will say that the 2010 V10 R-tronic is MUCH smoother than the early versions of the R-tronics I drove in the V8’s. For me, I am absolutely happy having gone to the R-tronic for my V10. It gives me the option for being lazy when driving in traffic and the quick shifting options for track or spirited driving.

All in all, the V10 is a great enhancement to an already incredible car. Both engine versions are a blast to own and drive.

Audi Wheel & Tire Packages – Contact Sunset Audi Parts Department

Jan 6

With the right winter tires, your Audi can take you over ice and snow, through the harshest winter driving conditions* to your dream destinations. But all-season tires are not optimized for traction in temperatures below 45° F, making winter tires particularly important in true winter climates. But how do you know which winter tires are correct for your Audi? Ask Sunset Porsche Audi , your Authorized Audi Dealer.
Audi Snow Tire Package
Adding a set of winter tires can help the performance of your anti-lock brake and traction control systems on ice, snow and slush. Plus, winter tires help quattro® all-wheel drive and FrontTrak® front-wheel drive deliver new levels of control in cold temperatures, which can diminish the traction of ultra-high-performance and all-season tires.

Audi Quitting Time!

Dec 7

Hello Fellow Friday Enthusiasts!! We thought we’d post a pic of a spectacular Audi driving off into the sunset – but then we realized that was pretty unrealistic for these parts, so we found one driving off into the dark instead. Either way, in a few hours time, depending on where you are currently in the world, you too will be driving off and heading into your weekend! We hope anyways. We have had a fantastic week and want to say a big thank you for all your orders for I Am Audi Gear yesterday! It was our best day yet and we owe that all to our awesome fans! Thank you again and have a great weekend!

Audi S8 – The Ultimate Touring Sedan

Jul 3

Imagine the perfect road trip … What do you see? Where are you going? And most importantly, what are you driving? I was sitting in my office today looking through the glass and picturing the perfect road trip trying to decide where I would go and what car I would drive. First, I knew the trip would be long and I would have to be prepared for all kinds of driving conditions: hot weather, windy mountain roads and of course, high speeds. Second I would need a co-pilot. My wife and our dog Guinness would have to be part of this great trip, and of course, for the tough part, what vehicle would be up to the task? The Audi TT would be too small for the long distance we would be traveling; the Q7 couldn’t keep up in the twists and turns; the R8 would be a bit flashy and though the A4 would be very equipped, this was a once in a life time trip… I had it! The Audi S8. Nothing compares to this machine. A 450 HP touring sedan with standard Quattro and a 0-60 in the low 5’s, how could I not have seen it sooner?! An all aluminum body based of that of the standard A8 to shed weight, and a 5.2L power plant derived from the Lamborghini Galardo, would be more then enough power. Startled by the ring of the telephone I was brought back from my afternoon daydream of the hot summer days, long roadtrips and a beautiful Audi. Right in front of my eyes sat the very car I had been imagining: a Daytona Gray pearl effect S8 with a black leather interior and carbon accents. With the elegance of the Alcantara headliner, heated rear seats and 20 inch wheels wrapped in a performance tire this monumental roadtrip could actually become a reality! As my Manager walked by he said, “you look deep in thought.”I replied, “just thinking about our next road trip” He laughed and reminded me I didn’t have any vacation left this year and the road trip would have to wait…

Now although I dont have any vacation time left and all I can do is dream, you can make this crosscountry tour a reality, come see me or “Contact Me Here” for more information on the Audi S8.

Another Non-US Audi A1 – Hint, Hint Audi We Want it!

Nov 30

We know it may seem slightly repetitive to keep talking about the Audi A1 – but we just can’t help how much we love this vehicle! So much in fact, that when there is any new news about it, we feel obligated to spread the word! So that is just what we are going to do. Not that it will likely make any difference to any of us seeing this little machine in the US, but at least it is still ok to live vicariously through others. This time, those others happen to be the lucky folks in Tokyo who had the opportunity to catch the unveiling of the A1 Sportback at the Tokyo Auto Show. It is expected to be available in early 2012 in Europe, of course, and is aimed at the “young, urban public.” Not that we would expect anything less from Audi – but it is a very cool and sporty – and though we may not speak for everyone, but with no plans to be released in the US, we are a bit sad about this. Click to catch some of the specs on the A1 Sportback and dream about living in Europe, for more than one reason or another!!

Well I do like it and I like the time that went into putting this picture together – who ever put this picture together keep up the good work, love the creativity.

2011 Audi A8 – Night Vision

Apr 30

Audi is not the first to do night vision in their cars but they are the fist to advance it to this level. It looks like this group is having a good time as they test the night vision in this 2011 Audi A8. As described by Audi the option: “• Night vision assistant (optional) with thermal-imaging camera (infrared). o Shown in the driver information display, the pedestrian detection software highlights people and animals and determines if a critical situation is imminent.” I am sure we will see this option trickle down to other Audi vehicles; I am happy to see Audi getting into night vision technology.

Lets Go Golfing! – Portland Audi Lifestyle

Aug 18

We just got a 2009 3.2L Audi TT Roadster in the Prestige trim level with navigation and it is one nice car. This 3.2L TT is not ready to be sold yet it still has to go through its 300+ Point Certified Audi Warranty inspection but it still looks so nice. The TT has just about 9,000 miles on it so the engine is barely broken in and the interior still has that new car smell. Summer is here and the sun is out, it is supposed to be in the 90’s today and it is time to go Golfing! . “Do golf clubs fit in the trunk?” If you had a hard top convertible the answer would be not, however with the Audi TT Roadster your Golf Clubs will fit in the trunk. What could be better then waking up early for a round of 18 holes and going out, putting your clubs and shoes in the trunk of your convertible and still being able put the top down. We have convertibles to enjoy our particular lifestyles whether it is golfing, tennis, going out for a picnic with a bottle of wine or just driving along the ocean with the wind in your hair, sun on your face and of course the top down! Audi is a vehicle that encompasses a lifestyle without compromise, so even if you are a golfer and want a TT Roadster you don’t have to worry because “your clubs will fit in the trunk!”

New 2013 Audi Allroad – We welcome you with open arms!

Sep 23

Let us start off by saying Audi we love you and we love the Audi Allroad! “Audi is reportedly looking to return to the toughened-up, all-wheel drive-wagon niche by bringing its A4 Allroad model to the U.S. in the near future.” reports Left Lane News .

Left lane news also says: “Company execs told Car and Driver that the Allroad nameplate, last seen on a slow-selling variant of the A6 Avant (Audi-speak for wagon) in 2005, will soon make its return to America. Because an A6 Avant is no longer offered in the states, it appears that the A4 Avant will be the model to receive the Allroad treatment. The American A4 Allroad will likely be quite similar to its European counterpart, with flared and gray-colored bumpers, skid plate-like detailing on the front and rear fascias and extra ground clearance differentiating it from the normal Avant model.”

2011 Audi R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro – Official Info

Jul 5

From the Something-We-Figured-Was-Coming-But-Are-Thrilled-To-See-Anyway Department comes Audi’s announcement of the R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro. It’s basically the V-8 version of the V-10–engined R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI Quattro, which itself is scheduled to appear in U.S. showrooms starting this September.
Audi R8 V8 Spyder

Audi of America says the V-8 Spyder will arrive in the U.S. in early 2011 with a 430-hp version of Audi’s 4.2-liter V-8, which coupes also will receive for 2011. A gated six-speed manual will be standard, while Audi’s R tronic automated manual will be optional. Although the 2011 model year starts this fall, 2011 R8 coupes won’t arrive until the Spyder shows up next year. If Audi keeps the weight gain to somewhere near the 220-pound difference between the V-10 coupe and Spyder models, the 4.2 Spyder should be able to knock out a 0-to-60-mph sprint in about 4.2 seconds. (We have been able to get the R8 4.2 coupe to 60 in four flat.)

No official imagery of the Spyder 4.2 has been made available (the V-10 Spyder is shown here), but we can surmise that it will look like a topless 4.2 coupe, with quad tailpipes and straked, matte-finish air intakes and extractors. Like its V-10–equipped counterpart, the V-8 Spyder’s fairings will be rendered in “glistening silver,” Audi says, with the windshield surround coated with anodized aluminum. Three cloth colors—red, black, and brown—will be offered for the softtop, to complement the 11 available paint colors. If the V-10 model serves as any precedent, anticipate a base-price bump of about 10 percent over that of the coupe, which would put it up in the neighborhood of $130K, some $35,000 less than the V-10 Spyder.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren – 722 Edition

Aug 4

What can I say – I am a car guy. I have a passion for Audi but deep down, I just love cars. While walking through the streets of Munich, Germany last week I saw a Mercedes in person that I had never seen before the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren – 722 Edition Pretty awesome! Below is an excerpt from Wikipedia on how the 722 got its name – For the full article click “Wikipedia” My first non-Audi automotive post! Take it easy on me!

“A new version was introduced in 2006 called the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition. The “722” refers to the victory by Stirling Moss and his co-driver Denis Jenkinson in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR with the starting number 722 (indicating a start time of 7:22 a.m.) at the Mille Miglia in 1955.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
