The new Audi E-Tron… was there an old one? It seems to me that the Audi E-Tron was just released and that the original concept vehicle is still very fresh, but could it be a more beautiful fully electric Audi has joined the pack? The most recent version of the Audi E-Tron is in my opinion the better looking of the two concepts and I hope the production vehicle takes hints from it. The wheel on the original concept E-Tron was not my favorite, I like the new style much more also the larger more pronounced fenders in the front. It would be nice to see the new E-Tron in red or a color that really shows off the body lines.

With the focus lately so heavily on business to business communication the fundamentals of relationships have been lost. Yesterday my good friend Benjamin reminded me of what importance we, as a younger generation have on the future of good business practices. Not knowing how profound this statement would be to me he said, “the major problem with such a heavy focus on business to business is you lose the person to person communication”. Immediately I thought of our profession as car salesman (sales people) and how the stigma that surrounds us is not one of people who thrive and survive on relationships. Large corporations have as of late been promoting their strengths of fast, efficient, cutting edge business and this model has been adopted by many small companies, but this idea is fundamentally unsustainable.
Now for the truth; business is about relationships and people, not connectivity of two industries. We must remember the value of the people involved and not the bottom line. Good car salesman are great at building relationships and ultimately getting the client what he or she wants without the corporate mentality influencing the goal at hand. Something else that car salesman must be admired for is ultimately they are working for the customer at all times. From the moment they meet and greet, to the connection that is built, getting the client the product and even continuing the relationship. This is a perfect model of what must be brought back into the corporate world; taking care of the client is number #1!
Now to further this if you look Social Media is everywhere and often these large companies discourage this form of interaction with both co-workers and clientele alike, why? Why discourage the one thing that will maintain a long term connection with your clients with absolutely no cost or commitment, and where the sky is truly the limit? I wanted to say thank you to all the other Audi Brand Specialists out there who represent the product and brand so well. There really are no limitations of building connections and keeping that bond strong and it will ultimately benefit you and your business alike. Keep up the great work and make sure to stay focused on the one thing that matters to be successful, the client.

This Rieger modified Audi S5 looks pretty nice, it almost has the Böser Blick look but not quite. The evil eye, mean look is reserved for the brave few who have the hood modified to overlap the headlights, something I have not seen done on the new Audi’s. The most important thing when deciding to modify your Audi is going with quality parts, creativity and making sure that the look flows with the natural design of your Audi. There is nothing worse then spending countless hours and a ton of time on a project that is destined to never look right. I always suggest to those who intend on going down the road of modifications take the time to find a look that will work for them and not jump into the project blindly. Some of the best looks come from risk taking but so can the worst.
Audi CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) Scott Keogh says what is on everyone’s mind, and for that Scott we love you! Audi deserves to be represented by someone with some guts and from what I have seen you are the right guy for the job. Recently The Huffington Post published an article on the Marketing efforts of Audi during “The Season Of Audi Event” criticizing the Brand; Scott Keogh stepped up and defended what Audi stood for and the true message of Audi. Thank you Scott for your efforts with Audi and the work you do, your contribution is invaluable.
Top Gear 14 Episode 6 is straight from Bolivia and you better have 4 wheel drive for this journey; Clarkson says they are like “fish out of water” and after watching I couldn’t agree more. My older sister Erin spent some time in Bolivia with the Peace corps and was visited by my older brother Graeme, and this is exactly as they described it. On dirt or pavement the guys from Top Gear sure do know how to put on a show, keep it up Top Gear.

Personally I always like to represent the Audi Brand and for some reason I can’t help myself when it comes to the four rings. Now I try to always wear genuine Audi attire however sometimes I wish I had some Audi gear with vintage logo’s or a specific model logo like the Audi S3. A company was brought to my attention today by Mr. Diggles and its called Brands Of The World . This is a website that solely finds logos then recreates them for distribution on what ever it is you want, and they have a lot of Audi logo’s. Like I said i always try to get Genuine Audi atire but for the times its not out there I will have a place to go. Check out just a few examples below.
Growing up my parents taught me that certain subjects really were not appropriate for open conversation, that some subjects are “taboo” not because they are wrong but because they are sensitive. Now with 3 siblings 2 of them being brothers it was not always easy being sensitive to our sister, but we all knew right from wrong. Watching this Audi video reminded me of growing up and my Mom saying “now remember what I taught you” because this subject would be considered some what sensitive and not really a laughing matter. Well Audi I have to give it to you because the only thing that might sell as well as sex is shock.
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.
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.
Contact Sunset Porsche Audi today for the recommended Winter Wheel & Tire Package for your Audi.
Time to separate yourself, now that you have one of the most capable sports-cars on the road (if you don’t believe me ask any automotive publication) all you have to do is put some defining trim pieces to remind the other drivers. The Audi Alu-Optic trim package is a set of supercharged badges and some very nice brushed aluminum stone guards that will complement the mirror caps very nicely.
Please don’t hate me I am just going sharing what I found and giving my opinion. AOL Autos published an article from a study done by Dr. Wolf of Germany’s Ruhr University on how men are “better” at parking them women. Now I don’t think it is fair to say that men are better simply because they park quicker then women, as long as they both get the job done then I have to say they are equal. Alright I have only been married for two years so I want to make sure the door is unlocked when I get home. Read the article for yourselves, thank you Ruhr University for choosing to conduct this study in the worlds #1 selling mid-sized vehicle, the Audi A6.
Business Week wrote a very encouraging article in regards to the growth of the Audi Brand and how Volkswagon will be investing a staggering 10.5 billion dollars into Audi. Having worked for Audi, Volkswagon, Porsche for many years and hearing peoples reaction to the Brand and their lack of enthusiasm and understanding of Audi’s presence in the Import High Group Market it is great to se how far the company has come in such a short time. Expect to se great things from Audi in the next 5 years, if you are looking for a success story this company will give you one.
The Audi B5 body style is to date one of my favorites. It could be because of the size or this was the model available off the showroom floor when I was new in the business or it could be my memories of this body style in the DTM races. No matter what the reason my appreciation for a project like this will never go away; taking an already amazing RS4 Avant and swapping the motor with the more potent BI-Turbo RS6 motor. Audi is know for beautiful Avants (wagons), Audi is know for potent turbo charged engines and of course Audi is known for quattro, so what do you get if you add this all up? An Incredible project.
As the new year approaches I think of everything I have accomplished in 2009 and everything I want to do in the new year, the list is long but I have a ton of goals. Something I have to do is visit Audi – Porsche headquarters in Germany, it is sad to say but even after being with Audi, Volswaon and Porsche Brand for almost 7 years I have never had the time to visit headquarters. Well 2010 is going to be the year I make the trip to Europe; I would love to hear everyone’s story who has visited the Audi factory and see some pictures. If you are like me and have not been over read this article from The New York Times titled “Touring the Temples of German Automaking” it will make you want to take the trip.
It is a little embarrassing to post this after my last publication on “ Audi doing what Audi was made to do. I find myself taking pictures of this Sprint Blue 2010 Audi S4 from inside the showroom because I didn’t want to walk in the rain. So even though Audi is made for the elements and this sprint Blue S4 is drop dead gorgeous I am not so tough and and am afraid to get a little rain on my head. However hear you are, some pictures of the upgraded 19 inch wheel that looks better in person and this sweet Audi S4. And lastly I should point out the color of my link font, and why I have done so many links, it matches the car.
I love to see people using the Audi product for what it was made for, to be driven! I sold this R8 just about a year ago and recently the owner and myself had a chat about how much he loves this R8, he loves the way it performs in slick conditions and how it just sticks to the ground. The Audi R8 is a vehicle that can be driven as a daily driver, and this picture proves that, even at the end of December.
This is more like it Top Gear, It may not be Audi related but this car is fast! If I was to get a super-car… well my opinion on what super-car to get is not important but this thing would be a blast to drive. No matter what kind of car you get in this class you are guaranteed to have a machine that 99% of the time is more capable then the driver. My background on the Noble is limited if you have further insight into this car or the company please share, we would love to hear it.
To the best of my knowledge Audi has never built a fire truck or aircraft elevator so it is very unlikely that you will see one of our cars on this episode of Top Gear. I think Audi would do pretty well at producing machines for odd jobs, we seem to have the engineering thing down to a fine art. Enjoy your Wednesday and let me know what you want to see.
The V10 Audi R8 in the snow, now you might ask why? And my response would be ‘Because it can” I watched this video and asked my self if I should share it and then Jeff a Portland local pointed out it would be perfect for the weather today, it is really coming down right now. We don’t get snow very often in Portland Oregon and as we all know Audi really shines in adverse conditions. Enjoy the video and Jeff thanks for keeping up and contributing!
Nothing to do with Audi . This is so much worse then the making of an electric car, I have these ideas but to act on them wood be lunacy. I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag on what episode 3 of of season 14 of Top Gear is about, you will see soon enough. Have a great rest of your day and as always thanks for following I Am Audi.
Audi has given the go ahead for the Audi Q5 hybrid,I think this is a necessary evil for the market and the future of Audi in the United States. I am more of a diesel fan then a Hybrid fan but you don’t see my laptop running on diesel so I know there is still a use for lithium-ion technology. Enjoy the guys from Top Gear as they try to build an electric car, what a horrible idea they should have built a dart board or something useful.
Top Gear and Audi are well… both car related so as you all know I like them. Top gear has recently, along with the rest of the world fallen in love with the Audi Brand. There was a time when Top Gear really didn’t have anything nice to say about Audi or Audi cars but not any more. Episode 1 of season 14 of Top Gear does not have any Audi’s but it has a Lamborghini, the R8 in disguises. Enjoy the full uninterrupted episode.
Audi has introduced an electric car! Alright now that the excitement has subsided next year if 100 are built worldwide I would be surprised. An immense amount of research and development have went into the new Audi Etron and every button and innovation on this pre-production car work. The best part about the new Audi Etron is the zero emissions and 500 + foot pounds of torque that it is capable of. As more information is released and production cars are built I make sure to share what I here.
PPI Design has developed some spectacular cars in, the wide body Audi Q7 is nice but my favorite is the carbon fiber Audi R8 Razor. The design and performance have both been enhanced on the PPI R8 however I would not want to see this car in an accident, ouch. Thanks everyone for following I Am Audi, if you want to see anything specific let me know and I will see what I can do.
As seen on www.speedhunters.com these two bagged A4 Avant’s look pretty nice, it could just be that they are manual transmission wagons. I seem to be into Audi Avant’s right now so forgive me I am sure by the first of the new year I will be onto something new. What made me dig these pictures up was a few shotsI saw on www.audizine.com that brought back some fond memories. While I lived in Victoria British Columbia my good friend Nate had a very nice car on air suspension and it forever changed my opinion of Air ride.
If you want to make your car look more aggressive infact just plain mean paint it Matte Black and be done, but you better be able to back it up. No matter what make or model of car it is someone has probably painted it flat black; this Audi RS4 Avant happens to look so good in this color. Not just any car can pull it off but this “grocery getter” does it very well, the only color I might like more is matte pearl white but it really depends on the application. One thing is for sure is that this style is not for everyone, people either love or hate it.
The Audi A3 TDI looks almost identical to its older brother the gas powered Audi A3. Now don’t worry if you own the new Diesel A3 or happen to have one as a demo a few things will remind you to put diesel fuel in and not regular gas. A single tail pipe in the rear, the Clean Diesel sticker in the back window and of course the fuel cap is labeled “Diesel”. Something I noticed while driving the Diesel A3 was how quiet and smooth it was, after looking under the hood I saw the insulation was very nice. The engine and drive of this vehicle are amazing and the fit and finish of the interior and exterior are second to none.
Audi is well known for its diesel technology and slowly the word is getting out about the V12 Diesel Q7 available in Europe, sorry to say we will not be getting it in the United States. Jeremy Clarkson from BBC’s Top Gear compares the Audi, BMW & Land-Rover in a not so practical setting but what can I say these SUV’s are not very practical. I don’t want to spoil the end of the video, so take a few minutes and let me know what you think. On a side note the Q7 is in my opinion the best looking of the bunch, I think Jeremy Clarkson is out of his mind when he says otherwise.
Thank you Ian!!! Kansas and I have wanted a Play Station 3 since the end of summer because of all of its capabilities, and you made this wish come true; with such a great family I have everything I could ever want for Christmas. On my way home I will be picking some games up so if you find yourself in a race against an Audi be ready because I take this stuff pretty seriously.
This evening some more hard news for the Portland Trail Blazers, I will spare everyone the details. I love the Portland Trail Blazers and as much as I hesitate to share a picture of the game the other night (because it is not Audi or automotive related) I have to. Right now is a time to do what Portland does best and support our team even with the odds stacked against us. If I cant make it to the games I will make sure to tune into 95.5 the game, a station from Alpha Broadcasting a great client of ours. Well John Canzano its up to you to keep it posative and help us through these rough times, Go Blazers! and with every set of tickets we are given we will be there at the game, your 6th man!

Fourtitude a place to go online to see the latest Audi news, but who would have known George had such an eye for fashion. Having played some Rugby myself the first thing I noticed in this picture were the Rugby’s they were wearing, uncommon gear in the United States. I would love to have one of these Jerseys for myself because in my opinion a good rugby can’t be replace for comfort. Nice eye George and keep up all the great work on Fourtitude.
