On Saturday we had the great pleasure of stopping by Renovo Hardwood Bicycles in our fine city of Portland, Oregon. The latest teaming of Audi with Renovo Bikes had us intrigued and we spent a couple hours talking with the owner, Ken and getting to know his brilliant dog, Elwood. You would be hard pressed to find someone as passionate about bike building as we are about Audi – but we found him! Ken has managed to turn something he loves into a very thriving business and still maintained his dedication to all things handmade. These bikes are incredible! We were amazed to find that minimally 12 hours of hand sanding goes into every frame – it is truly a remarkable process.
The bikes are all custom made and fit to each individual, and every inlay of wood is tested and dried right on site – the end result; a bike like no other. I suppose this is what caught Audi’s attention as well – they have teamed up with Renovo to produce the DUO, unveiled last Saturday in Dallas. The bike is distinctly unique and sports the four rings on the frame for an understated and perfectly tasteful combination of handcrafted and cutting edge – would Audi have it any other way?! Stay tuned for more updates on the DUO and be sure to be on the lookout for them and any other Renovo Bike in the city! A special thank you as well to Ken (and Elwood!) for taking time out of a packed schedule to show us around and educate us on this very unique process going on right next door!! It was a pleasure. To inquire more about the Audi Duo contact the Audi Wilsonville parts specialists to discuss the Audi collection!!!
From the Inside Line Youtube page regarding this fantastic video production of the new 2012 Lamborghini Aventador Getting Dirty in the California desert. – “There’s no denying that the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 was one of the biggest stars of the 2011 Geneva Auto Show. It had all the ingredients of a show-stopping supercar stuffed into a shape that was rivaled only by the models standing next to it. But seeing the new Lamborghini sitting on a show stand is one thing. Hearing the Aventador LP700-4 ripping across the desert is another experience entirely. We know this because we recently spent a day with the new Lamborghini on a film shoot in the California desert. The Aventador LP700-4 wore the same Argos orange color as the showcar, so it looked particularly striking after getting covered in a thick coat of dry lake silt. And when it fired up to head out for its beauty shots, the sound of its 6.5-liter V12 didn’t disappoint.”
With such an incredible team of players at Audi such as Mark Del Rosso, Johan de Nysschen and Scott Keogh it is no wonder that Audi is having the success that it is today. It’s easy to measure the success of Audi if you gauge it solely on car sales, but there is so much more to it than that. Audi has had, what I consider, more profound success in the past six months than in any time in the last decade, and from what I see there is no signs of slowing. As recent as this weekend with the 10th win at Le Mans, with all the cards stacked against Audi, the team managed to pull it together and bring home the win! It seems like everywhere within the company, no matter racing and development, sales and service, or any other facet, brand awareness at an all time high and Audi continues to have a social media reputation that is nearly unmatched. The question is: to who do we owe all this success to? Of course it’s a team effort – but I believe that the culture of Audi has been created by Scott Keogh whose vision and insight into the brand has served Audi so very well. Scott joined Audi the first week of June in 2006 so this year marks his 5th year with the company – Congratulations on 5 years Scott!! We hope to see Audi continue to progress as it has been this last five years and we have no doubt it will with the expertise of such a great group behind it and Scott Keogh as the Chief Marketing Officer producing great opportunities for Audi to grow and thrive in the ever changing world of the automotive industry. Keep up the great work Scott!!!
As stated by the Audi Collection website, regarding the new Audi DUO “While quattro® refers to the revolutionary permanent four-wheel-drive system Audi developed over 30 years ago, the name duo refers to versatility of this amazing bicycle – to its ability to serve as both a work of art and a mode of transportation – and to its ability to blend beauty and craftsmanship with performance and technology. The four rings; available soon on two.” Amazingly the DUO is hand crafted in our beautiful city of Portland, Oregon by Renovo Hardwood Bicycles! Stay tuned for more updates and be sure to be on the lookout for them in the city! We are bound to see soon – Portland loves it bikes!!
Guns N’ Roses sang, “Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty…” and let me tell you wouldn’t we love to go! Portland has been wet and raining for the past 4 months and we know we are not alone when we say we just want to escape. The R8 Spyder is the perfect car to escape in and Brazil could be the perfect place – anywhere is better then Portland right now. Watch this new spot from Audi showcasing the V10 Audi R8 Spyder in an unlikely surrounding, the coastline of beautiful Brazil – and just maybe for a minute we will feel like we are out of rainy Portland and in paradise!
Yesterday I Am Audi featured a video from a popular Australian artist that was filmed entirely in an Audi ‘ terminal-style ‘ dealership. We know that Audi’s have become increasing popular as props in videos – and today is yet another video proving that point. Watch this video, both produced ( Imperial Video ) and also featuring Vinny Minton, to catch the Audi R8 in nature! And for everyone that thinks that rollerblading is dead – it is alive and well in sunny Long Beach, California! Enjoy.

This morning Mercedes Benz posted on their Facebook page a video titled “Racing to Breakfast in the new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe”, were they show a new C63 Coupe racing a Ducati to breakfast at the beach-house. Mercedes wrote on their Facebook page “Simply because Mercedes-AMG is the Official Car Partner of Ducati’s MotoGP racing team doesn’t mean we can’t engage in a little healthy competition. Watch the new 2012 C63 AMG Coupe and the Ducati 848 EVO superbike jockey for position at the breakfast table.”
The short clip was well done from every point of view, it has some beautiful driving shots and great music but oddly left me wanting a Ducati not a new C63 Coupe. Is that an advertising backfire or is it a success, can you advertise using props that attract more attention then the product being sold? The answer in my opinion is yes, it is a good tactic that should be used more often by other companies but makes me wonder just how Audi would do it?
Some great renderings of the future Audi RS6 have surfaced at Automotive Addicts and they are fantastic! Audi is heading in a direction that other automotive manufactures can only dream! Yet another example of how Audi is an inspirational brand for every automotive manufacturer – no matter how many ideas come and go, Audi is always on the top of its game! We dare you to aspire.

A few weeks ago we wrote an article highlting Channing Frye and his new 2011 Audi A8L titled – Channing Frye – The Rising Sun . Today some close friends of ours Mr. Diggles & Brino headed down to Phoenix to celebrate how well Channing is playing (if you missed the Suns vs: Lakers game, triple overtime – it was amazing!) We asked Channing how he was liking his new Audi and he told us “I love my Audi, I had always been into Mercedes but this is so much nicer from the handling to the way the car feels inside, it is all around the best and most fun car I have ever had”
We then asked Channing if anyone else on the Phoenix Suns drives an Audi? He laughed and said “I’m not really sure but they’ve all asked to drive my new A8 after practice, seriously they all want to try Audi” We figure its time everyone on the team drives an Audi. Well Portland misses you Channing and we are always excited for when you play at the Rose Garden. We love your Audi A8L as we love your wife’s 2011 Audi Q7 – It’s awesome your a 2 Audi family!
Well here we go again! Whether the first thing you notice is the ceramic brakes on the R8 or the Audi Girl getting her Birkin she left behind – we understand! We have to imagine she was on the way to the office or picking her car up from service, but either way I think we can all agree, it is a great view! Enjoy – no matter what you’re looking at.
The family she is marrying into famously doesn’t carry money. So perhaps Kate Middelton was just getting a little practice. Certainly, she’ll have needed an exceptional excuse to escape London’s traffic wardens. For when Prince William’s fiancée made a trip to a London store this week, she didn’t pay the £4 it should have cost to park her Audi A3 in the pay-and-display bay. Hassle-free: Kate Middleton returns to her Audi A3 yesterday after escaping a parking ticket
Hassle-free: Kate Middleton returns to her Audi A3 yesterday after escaping a parking ticket Instead, she left it to a police protection officer watching from another car to send the wardens packing. According to onlookers, Kate pulled into a the pay and display bay, directly below a warning sign, and jumped out of her car to duck into the Peter Jones store in fashionable Chelsea. Fifteen minutes later a traffic warden ambled on by and, noticing Miss Middleton’s failure to pay, began taking down the details of her car. Warned off: A police protection officer has a word with a traffic warden who let Kate off without a fine. But a police protection officer, who was following Kate, quickly hurried over to explain to the traffic warden who the VIP driver was. An onlooker said: ‘I saw a warden arrive and he started to take down the car’s details.
Then an officer arrived, flashed his badge and had a chat. ‘Whatever he said persuaded the warden not to issue a ticket.’ This one hasn’t paid and displayed? A traffic warden homes in on Kate Middleton’s Audi This one hasn’t paid and displayed? A traffic warden homes in on Kate Middleton’s Audi Witnesses report that two separate parking officers approached the car, but both times were shooed away by Kate’s minders. Miss Middleton later returned to her car with a female protection officer in tow, perhaps none the wiser to all the fuss.

Here is the official Audi R8 GT order guide – simply click to download Audi R8 GT Order Guide. Let us know if you have any questions; the supply is very limited and my guess is nearly every GT will be sold prior to arriving at the Audi dealer.
A friend of mine and and fellow Audi enthusiast Ryan Schroder put this “Audi Quattro Tribute” poster together and I absolutely love it! The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this, after how good it looks, was Audizine’s 10 year anniversary shirt – though the contest is closed, it would have been a top contender. Thanks Ryan, we really appreciate your continued dedication to Audi, keep up the great work!!!
I was suprised to find how little information there was on the Audi B5 Nav Plus Retrofit, it seems like this would be a common mod, I guess not. So I decided to find someone with a little experience, Jeff in the parts department has actually retrofitted the RNS-E Nav Plus system into his B5 A4 and he did a killer job, the fitment is exceptional. The install took Jeff several month to complete.
The first roadblock was the can-bus communication between the navigation and the radio was tough to establish, the time on the cluster did not match the Nav Plus screen. Second the Bluetooth was difficult to wire (make sure your wiring connections are 100%) it is most likely not a faulty Bluetooth module. The B5 A4 was never designed to have this system, so needless to say you will need to modify the heater by removing approx: 3 inches. Jeff did this install on 3/20/2008 so a tone of information is available, regardless this is not simple but well worth the effort.
The Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible Limited Edition has been released at Geneva to celebrate the British world speed record on ice. Finland’s four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen drove the Bentley off the coast of Finland, at a top speed of 330.695km/h (205.48mph). But now this record has been broken already even before the celebrating convertible hits the production line!
The new world record for fastest car on ice was set by Nokian Tyres ’ test driver Janne Laitinen who drove an Audi RS6 to a top speed of 331,610km/h (206,05mph) on the Gulf of Bothnia in Oulu, Finland. The record was broken on March 6th on a 14 kilometer ice track in freezing conditions.
How important tyres are is emphasized with the record. Tyres are the vehicle’s only contact point with the driving surface. When driving at exceptionally high speeds on slippery ice, the tyres must provide maximal grip, structural durability and handling properties that are in line with the car’s high power. When a car moves at a speed of 331km/h, the car covers over 92 meters in one second. The tyres are under immense pressure at these high speeds, and their diameter can increase by 15–20mm. As the air resistance increases, more traction is needed in order to pick up speed.
The Guinness World Records organization outlines detailed rules for ice driving world records. The time for the one-kilometer distance is taken for driving in both directions of the track, and the world record time is the average of these two results. The vehicle takes a flying start. There is a total of one hour to complete the record attempt. The ice has to be natural and it may not be roughed up or treated with any chemicals. The tyres must be commercially available and approved for road traffic in the country in which the record attempt takes place.
Nokian Tyres is the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer and the only one in the world that focuses on products and services that facilitate safe transportation in Nordic conditions. Therefore, Nokian operates the only permanent winter tyre testing facility in the world in Ivalo, 300km north of the Arctic Circle. They developed the world’s first winter tyre for raw, subzero conditions back in 1934. Two years later, it introduced the Hakkapeliitta, designed for northern winters and the record-breaking Audi was equipped with Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 studded tyres. We wonder, would Bentley strike back?

We can’t give you specifics on the project in the pictures, however what we can say is that Audi Wilsonville recently partnered with Nike Corporate to get some footage that included a 2011 Audi A8L. When one of the largest companies on the planet can get any car they want and they choose Audi, it really is an indication of where the brand is headed. Portland Audi + Nike: cool cars and awesome shoes… the perfect mix!
The diesel-centric website The Diesel Driver has put together an deep analysis on the U.S. diesel sales in 2010. According to them, diesel sales have doubled last year with the highest point of the year being registered in August at 37 percent. The reports says 31% of BMW drivers chose a diesel in Q4 as well as throughout the year. In January, 26% chose a diesel and 36% opted for diesel in April. Total diesel sales for BMW in 2010 were 11,727. The top selling diesel model in the United States was the BMW X5 xDrive35d with 7,925 units. The second diesel offered here is the 335d which registered 3,802 units sold. In contrast, their gasoline counterparts came at 21,803 units for the X5 and 4,638 for the 335i. In May of last year, BMW announced plans to add two additional diesel models within the coming 12 months. Specific details were not disclosed.
At Audi, 48% of buyers chose a diesel in the fourth quarter as well as for the entire year. Total diesel sales were 6,941 units. Audi started off 2010 with 51% of buyers choosing a diesel
in January and ended the year with 46%. August was the high point for Audi diesel sales with 63% choosing a diesel. In the U.S., Audi sells two diesel models: A3 TDI and Q7 TDI. Both sales numbers are fairly balanced, 3,475 for the A3 and 3,466 for Q7.
11% of Mercedes buyers chose a diesel in January. June was the highwater mark with 17%. Fourth quarter sales were 16% and comparable model diesel sales for the year were 14%. Total diesel sales for 2010 were 7,440. The most sold MB diesel in the U.S. was the GL350 BlueTEC model, followed by the ML320/350 BlueTEC. The E-Class diesel sold 827 times.
Volkswagen, while not considered a premium automaker, the VW brand does exceptionally when it comes to diesel sales in the United States. Fourth quarter diesel sales were 35%, December sales were 32%, and the company closed the books on 2010 with comparable model diesel sales of 37%. Total diesel sales for 2010 were 51,769. The best selling diesel in the line-up was the Jetta Sedan TDI, 22,714 units, followed by the Jetta Sportwagen TDI with 21,201.

Motor Ward says “The cute little Audi A1 gets a fresh set of wheels from Pogea Rcing . These are 18-inch OZ Racing Alleggerita HLT wheels wrapped in Continental ET35 Sport Contact 3 tires. They look good inside the fenders thanks to the KW coilover suspension kit that lowers the car. You might also catch a glimpse of the Brembo braking package inside the rims. That’s a nice touch.” Pogea racing really stands behind its tag line, “Are values are what make us tick.” and we love what they have done with the Audi A1!
The guys at Underground Racing – an American tuner obsessed with 1000+ hp twin turbo engines – announced a package for Audi R8 V10. You guessed it, it is a twin turbo and it has 1000+ hp! – says Motor Ward . Motor Ward also points out that this actually has not been a hard task for Underground Racing since the 5.2 liter V10 in this Audi is basically the same V10 they’ve tuned a number of times in Lamborghini Gallardo. So with the right fuel this twin turbo kit can potentially produce up to 1100 PS and mountains of torque.
Now take a minute and ask yourself what you would do with a 1,000 hp V10 R8 and how far we will be able to take this quest for “more power!” The tire manufactures already struggle to keep up with the demands of all this power and of course it is no easy feat for the brakes or drive-train either. Well we will just have to wait and see what comes next and just how much more power we can get out of these already incredible cars!
Is it a surprise that #8 Channing Frye of the Phoenix Suns just got a new Audi A8L? No surprise to us – he has had his mind on Audi for the last 3 years and it was just a matter of time. We met Channing a few years back when he lived in Portland and played basketball for the Trail Blazers. We told him then that he had to drive the A8L , trying to strip him of the Mercedes S Class he had grown accustomed too. The look on his face was priceless – it was as if we had asked a vegetarian to eat meat. Three years later Channing calls us requesting the new A8! It was a proud moment for us knowing that someone who could have any car they wanted chose Audi. Below are some pictures of his new A8L before we sent it down to Phoenix! We will have Channing’s driving impressions on after he’s had an opportunity to drive his new A8L for a few months. Lastly – great job Channing on your last two game winning shots! Way to go!!!
The good news is that the driver of this Audi S5 takes full responsibility for his lack of due care. Also after a good cleaning it came out looking better then new! As originally written on Luxury 4 Play the driver of the S5 says “Don’t be an idiot like me and pull over to the side of the road the day after heavy rain. You will get stuck.” Thanks for sharing these pictures, we always love to see other peoples experiences, also this is an awesome Audi S5! To to all those BMW owners who are going to jump on this and use it as an opportunity to boast that “quattro is crap” don’t bother because your wrong!
I Am Audi has surrounded itself with the most talented people in the industry – everything from web, video, photography and editing. Now when when you combine that talent with passion for their craft, you get some pretty incredible results. Recently we wrote an article called “Portland Audi” S4 Rolling Shots!” where we highlight Twenty Forty One a local video motion company, driving an S4 from Audi Wilsonville . Little did we know that the guys from Splash NW were going to take these images and make them brochure quality (below image #1 is before and image #2 is after)! Thank you to everyone who takes the time to make these projects come to life; your talent and passion keeps I Am Audi going!

Recently we had the opportunity to hear the story of a 2012 Audi A6 reaching top speed on the German Autobahnen , here it is! Well here I am, in the land of sausage and sauerkraut, I’m rolling the new 2012 Audi A6 TDI and being American the first thing I want to know is “how fast can this thing go?”. Here’s my pick of the speedo at about 230 closing in on 260 where I finally felt it just wouldn’t go any faster. I’m going to say that (just for the record), you’ll want both hands on the wheel going over 230 KMPH! Hey someone throw me another quarter (or euro in this case), I want another run at it!! Thanks Audi for supporting these launches and making what we do so much fun!!!
Brian Baldwin has worked with video for his whole life and runs a video motion company called “Twenty Forty One” – it’s obvious its more than work, it’s his passion. Audi Wilsonville offered Brian an Audi S4 for a week and of course he jumped on the opportunity… so here is a sneak peak of “Portland Audi” S4 Rolling Shots!” Let us know what you think, it’s rare Portland see’s such beautifull weather in the middle of February!
Autoevolution recently published an article that said “we’re pretty sure that Jessica Alba has chosen the Audi Q7 just because it’s big.” Also stated in the Autoevolution article “we’re sure that she has no idea that what she’s driving is actually a TDI.”
Now we here at I Am Audi are confident that Jessica knows she is driving an Diesel TDI and that she made the choice to get an Audi because it is the best choice, not because “It’s big” In closing the article autoevolution did praise Jessica Alba for being “one of the few American celebrities that drive an Audi…” but followed it up by saying “most of them picked more environmentally-friendly rides like Lexus hybrids” We just can’t seem to find anything about this article that we like. Great Choice in vehicle Jessica you made the right decision, you will love your new TDI Audi Q7! Feel free to read the entire Autoevolution article “Here” and let us know what you think.
Check out this video from Audi on their take on how Social Media is leading the way towards the future. Not long ago Audi made headlines for their poll-taking via Facebook to determine whether or not they would bring the Audi TT RS to the USA – true to their word Audi maintained they would in fact bring the model to the US had they received enough support to warrant it – sure enough, they did, and the TT RS is now headed to the US. It is this type of use of social media that is making companies stronger than they have ever been and this is largely to do with the fact that consumers are more involved than they have ever been. We would love to see this type of out-reach continue with Audi as well as within the automotive industry.
Social media is really all about solidifying relationships on a level that everyone can take part in – no longer telling consumers what they want, but listening to them and getting their input to determine what they actually want. As written on the Audi USA Youtube page “Douglas Clark, General Manager, Customer Strategy & Engagement, discusses from the Chicago Auto Show the importance of Social Media, and how Audi is using Social Media to be more interactive with their consumers.” . Keep up the good work Douglas Clark and Audi USA, and keep on being Social!
I Am Audi decided to feature the Audi Girls series a few months back after the Paris Auto Show ; due to the demand we will continue! We knew girls and cars go hand in hand but had no idea how much the guys really loved the girls and how much the girls really like the cars. The culture surrounding the automotive lifestyle is one that really can’t be explained but continues to bring joy to the people immersed in it. Have a great week everyone, and smile Portland Audi owners, Summer is just around the corner!
Don’t ask me were we found This Post , all I know is that we found it! A man test drove a high-end while Audi Q7 car worth Rs80 lakh and liked it so much that he took it with him. He left behind perplexed showroom employees who are staring at a loss of Rs80 lakh. The man had come to the car showroom as a prospective buyer. As is the norm, the showroom gave him a car for a test drive and had one of their sales executive accompany him. The man then drove with the employee for some time before forcing him to get out of the car. He then escaped with the vehicle. The showroom employees are clueless about the prospective customer and so are the police. According to Vastrapur police, on Thursday between 12:30 and 12:45 pm a man who called himself Bhavesh Kabra came to the Audi showroom ‘Currish’ located at Rudraprashtha Complex near Rajpath Club, SG Highway. Kabra had visited the showroom last month as well. After initial inquiries, Kabra and the sales executive Chandrak Desai went for a test drive in the Audi Q7 near Science City, Bhadaj village.”Here, Kabra pretended to check the seats and asked the executive to see if there was some problem with the car’s rear.
As the executive stepped out of the car to check the same, Kabra zoomed off,” said SB Trivedi, police inspector Vastrapur. He said that police are trying to get a sketch of the man to locate him. Incidentally, the showroom doesn’t have any CCTV camera. According to Samir Mistry, owner of the showroom, the car had 90 liter of diesel in the fuel tank. The car can run at 250 km/ph. Showroom officials said that the man had visited the showroom around a month ago to inquire about the car. He had reportedly come alone without any vehicle. The police said that they have come to know that the car was seen at the Himmatnagar toll naka. It should be noted that the showroom employees didn’t even ask for the driving license of the man which they are supposed to do.
I Am Audi was off the grid for a while and for that we apologize, but now we’re back! Mysteriously our listing was removed from Google places as #1 for Portland Audi – It stands to reason no one likes to be second! I Am Audi is on Four Square so if your in the SW Waterfront or in the Portland area make sure to check in on your cell phone. Thank you everyone for all of your support, lets make 2011 a big year!!!
Published on Audi’s Youtube page but of course that’s not where we found it, we found it on Facebook . Twitter Facebook and Youtube are making a huge impression on the Automotive industry right now; watch the power of Social with the TT RS question and answeres segment. “Audi social media discusses the 2011 TT RS with Audi Product Manager Mark Fruechtnicht. Watch as questions submitted via Facebook and Twitter are answered in front of the TT RS on display at the Chicago Auto Show.” – I can’t wait to see whats next!
We understand that not everyone likes this ‘holiday’ – that many think it is just a waste of money spent on Hallmark cards and red roses and cliche gifts of hearts and red-anything… but in the spirit of red, we want you all to know that nothing says ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ or ‘I love you’ more than a bright, brand new, shiny red Audi ! This year – do something really special and bring home the one you love something you can love too! The only trouble will be trying to top it next year. So whether you love it or hate it – Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone. And at the very least – treat yourself to a red velvet cupcake or something.
