Audi Race Cars

Dec 15

Audi has used the race track for the research and development of their vehicle technology for as long as the company has been around. Winning race after race, these technologies are in the Audis we see on the road today . The heritage of Audi and their race history can be seen at the Ingolstat Museum in Germany, where the race winning vehicles are on display. Recently, a client of mine brought back some pictures of his experience at the Ingolstat. These are only a few of the pictures, however he and his wife said the trip was amazing. If you ever have the opportunity to go and see the Audi Factory and Museum do not pass it up. From the pictures I have seen and stories I have been told the experience looks incredible!

Audi Q5 – Making Magic

Dec 10

The new Audi Q5 spot involved over 100 actors requiring them to flip large cards in their hands in synchronicity.

Audi (ACC) Adaptive Cruise Control

Dec 5

Adaptive Cruise Control is an optional feature on the 2009 A4, A5, S5, A8 and Q7. This feature uses radar to sense forward moving vehicles in front, to maintain a predetermined distance and speed. Adaptive Cruise Control will apply both brake and throttle as needed to keep your desired speed while maintaing a safe distance with the vehicle ahead of you. If there is no traffic in front of you the Adaptive Cruise Control will simply maintain your speed. Adaptive Cruise Control will not react to stationary objects such as animals in the road. Audi braking guard will react and a chime will be heard and the brakes will be applied (however not at full force) to alert the driver. Also, if the weather conditions are poor, such as heavy fog or snow, the Adaptive Cruise Control will be disabled. It goes with out saying that the driver of the vehicle should always have full control and only use this system as a suplementry comfort device.
Picture Description

On the A8 and Q7 the Radar system is not visable unless the front bumper is removed. However as pictured above on the 2009 A4 the Radar system is exposed and visable in the lower right front grill. This goes for the A5 and S5 as well.

R8 “The Slowest Car Audi Has Ever Built”

Dec 2


Sometimes perfection takes time, and Audi understands that better then anyone. Why create a sport utility vehicle like the Q7 after everyone else has already done it? Because Audi can do it better.
Audi has never had a super car until the R8 and now that we do, they call it perfect. The R8 is a hand built super car with an aluminum spaceframe chasis and a FSI (Direct Injection) 4.2L mid engine that goes against the grain with a Quattro drive train. No one said perfection was ordinary, and Audi could not agree more.

Over the last few months I have been taking courses and attending classes in California to earn my 2008 Audi Brand Specialist Certification. There are a series of tests that have to be fufilled in order to recieve the certification that take a few months. Like anything you get out what you put in and I found the Audi Certification process to not only be very rewarding, but also very educational. I leared everything from the history of the Audi Brand to the importance of client satisfaction. It was not all books and tests, I had the opportunity to drive and be passenger in some of the fastest Audies available, such as the R8, S5 and RS4, while at the Infinieon Speedway in Sonoma. I am dedicated to Audi and am excited to grow with this brand.

As an option on most Audi’s the Bang & Olufsen sound system is an upgrade from the already great Bose sound system. The Bose sound system has 14 speakers and 255 watts as well as an 8 channel DSP amplifier producing a very pure sound. However, if you are looking for the ultimate listening experience while you drive, the Bang & Olufsen is the only way to go. With 14 B&O insulated speakers, 10 amplifiers and 1,000 watts, you will have not only the most rich sounding stereo system on the market, but also the most beautiful. Each of the 14 speakers is encapsulate by a aluminum cover. When the ignition is turned on in the A8, S8 or Q7 equipped with the B&O system the first thing you will see is 2 tweeters rise from the dash on the front passenger and drivers side dash. After that visual stimulation choose a song and enjoy the sound of this state of the art sound system working for you.

Audi A5 Coupe

Nov 3

Its been over 10 years since Audi has had a coupe in its line up, but now it’s back. The A5 is one of Audi’s most recent addition to the family and it is really a beautiful car. My first impression of the black S-Line package A5 was its flowing lines and low stance giving it the aggresive look even when sitting still. When stepping into the S-Line package A5, I found the interior to be very contemporary and the seats to be form fitting and suportive. The open sky panoramic glass roof gave the cabin a very open feel that was complemented by the white stitching throughout. The A5 had made such a strong visual impression on me I was eager to see if function could really match this high standard of form. With the integrated I-Pod adapter in the glove box, MMI controlled Navigation and Audi Lane Assist, the answer was clear “Yes”. Audi has managed to create yet another georgous vehicle supported by a Quattro drivetrain and features that will make you ask “What will they come up with next”.

The Last of the RS4

Oct 17

Recently I was lucky enough to find myself in beautiful Sonoma, California at the new Audi Forum located at the Infineon Raceway. While there for Audi Product training, I was introduced to one of the most stunning examples of Audi engineering, the RS4. At first glance the RS4 appeared to be only a more refined version of the A4 with huge fender flares, eloquently placed RS4 badging and enormous brakes all the way around.
Picture Description
As I studied the RS4 in more detail it became very clear this was no ordinary four-door sedan. With its race inspired engine technology taken from the Lemans Champion R8, it produces a gripping 420 horse power to all four wheels. I knew there was only one way to see what this vehicle was made of.
After putting my helmet on, I opened the door and sat inside. Situating myself into the proper seating position, I felt the interior wrap around me. With the Recaro leather seats at my back and switchblade Audi key in my hand I was definitely ready.
Picture Description
I placed my foot on the aluminum clutch pedal and felt the resistance, knowing this clutch was there to hold up to some serious power. With the key in the ignition I turned my wrist and then it happened, the beautiful sound of eight cylinders dancing to the rhythmic deep tone of the dual exhaust underneath my seat. The smile on my face was ear to ear and I was off down the first stretch of the Infinion Race Track. Not knowing what to expect, I took the first swooping uphill left turn with caution. This car was taking a corner at 55 miles an hour without any body roll or tire noise and I knew at that moment the RS4 would be the one in control.
Picture Description
Racing into the second corner at great pace, I hit the brakes and did they ever work! This corner was considerably steeper but the RS4 offered no hesitation. With no down shifting the vehicle was almost stopped before coming into the turn from speeds of over 65 miles per hour in what felt like no distance at all. By this time I was into the fifth right hand corner, only now was I getting a true feeling for what a monster the RS4 was and why Audi had put such detail into things like the ceramic coated engine manifold, carbon fiber interior trim, aluminum hood, fenders and the trunk bonnet. The RS4 was meant to be driven.
Picture Description
I pushed through this very steep right hand corner with the Quattro drive train harnessing the brute power from the engine. I knew I was in good hands and felt in complete control knowing I could do this in the dry, wet or even a snow covered track (with appropriate winter tires mounted, of course). Continuing on with great confidence my speeds increased and my skill behind the wheel of the RS4 did as well. As our first dance around the beautiful course came to an end I was not fatigued at all and neither was the RS4, as a matter of fact it was just getting warmed up.
Picture Description
know now, after proper introduction the first time I had approached the RS4 I was in great disillusion of what power it truly possessed. To come to grips with the RS4’s true potential, time has to be spent behind the wheel and a relationship has to built with the machine.

As for me, there will be the many endless laps spent and a great bond built with the RS4 throughout the rolling hills of Infineon Raceway and beyond.

I took these photographs to capture what will be the last of a brand new B7 RS4. I will continue to showcase original content in order to be your top source for Portland Oregon Audi.

Ceramic Brakes by Audi

Oct 16


There are many benefits of ceramic brakes in the automotive industry such as lighter weight, longer lasting components and superior stopping power at operating temperature. However historically they have been very difficult to manufacture “It’s not mechanical but chemical,” said Brembo’s Vavassori. “We start from powders and end up with a lightweight disc, but an expensive one.” SGL Carbon AG, of Wiesbaden, Germany, and Audi AG are trying to lower the cost of production by getting away from single batch production and going to a continuous system. When they are successful, we will see ceramic brake technology not in just performance super cars but on regular production Audi’s, greatly improving drivability and stopping performance.

Prestige Audi Wheel

When people look at a new model vehicle, one of the first things they notice is the style of the wheel it has. So often people change the wheel in thier head before they have ever driven the vehicle, because they don’t like the style. This is not the case in the instance of the 2009 Prestige trim level Audi A4 largely due to the beautiful style of this new wheel. The wheel is a 5 spoke, 18 inch wrapped in a 245/40 R18 all season tire that really fills the wheel gap, giving the A4 quite an aggressive stance. If the Factory Audi wheel looks this nice I can’t wait to see what the after market world will have to offer!

Vorsprung…Do you have it?

Oct 8


This is an Audi promotional video that I was introduced to; it really in capsules a lot of what Audi stands for as well as a brief background into their racing history. The vintage video clips with the rally spectators standing in the course of the Spec-B cars always make me say “wow!”

Audi Drive Select Technology

Oct 6

Picture Description
With the release of the 2009 Audi A4 we have yet another pioneered piece of technology, Audi Drive Select (ADS). With this new advancement, the driver of the vehicle is able to select between comfort, dynamic and auto setting as well as individaul selections from each to best suit thier driving style.
Picture Description
These selections can be made while driving, through the multimedia interface of the vehicle or with just the push of a button on the dash.
Picture Description
Choosing between these four setting will give the vehicle dramatic changes in throttle response, transmission shift points, shock damping, and the power-steering ratio and assist. When you have discovered what setting you prefer in each mode, the Audi Drive Select settings can be tailored to each individual person who drives the vehicle, whether they are in the mood for a sporty drive or something more suited towards comfort.
Picture Description
My first impression of the ADS was how great it would be for family’s with 2 or more people driving the vehicle who each preferred a different drive, however after experiencing it myself my mind was changed.
Picture Description
I took the 2009 A4 on a 15 minute drive and in that short period I found myself in each mode, customizing each setting to my driving style depending on the road conditions.
Picture Description
In that short drive I realized even with one driver you could really fall in love with the Audi Drive Select. With this feature you gain the capability to have the best of all worlds. Audi has managed to fit 3 cars into one and you the driver can decide which one you want, whenever you want it.

I took these photographs in order to provide the best example of this technology. I will continue to showcase original content in order to be your top source for Portland Oregon Audi.

Audi Certified Pre-Owned Walk Around

Oct 2

Picture Description
Monday September 22nd we set out to Seattle for the Regional Semi Finals for the Audi Certified Pre- owned walk around competition. It was a beautiful morning for the 3 hour drive ahead of us from Portland and Sunset Imports had provided the perfect car for the journey.
Picture Description
The sport package equipped Audi A4 Avant was sure footed at highway speeds and felt very connected to the road as we made our way into the heart of Seattle.
Picture Description
After arriving downtown we took some time at pikes street market for a nice walk to stretch our legs and take in some of the sites…
Picture Description
We then enjoyed a cup of coffee at the original Starbucks as I began my mental preparation for the Audi Certified Pre-owned Competition.
Picture Description
As the day came to a close we enjoyed a wonderful meal at our favorite Italian restuarant, Mitchellis. Always delicous food and great service, we find ourselves here for dinner everytime we come to Seattle.
Picture Description
Enjoying the last few minutes of daylight at the Pier…

The C.P.O. Semi Finals Walk Around consisted of 3 contestants, each contestant representing the Pre-owned vehicle to a potential client with 3 judges looking on.
The setting was very professional and each of us was very well versed in the Audi brand with a true passion for our product.
I was third to present the vehicle and with butterfly’s in my stomach I began, “Welcome to Sunset Audi”. Before I knew it 15 minutes had passed and I was concluding the demonstration with a hand shake. Though I would not be continuing onto the Las Vegas finals , I left with confidence and knew our certified warranty process was second to none. It was truley an honor to be a part of this exceptional training experience.

Audi Certified Warranty (CPO)

Sep 19

Picture Description
Audi Certified Website & 300+ Point Inspection Checklist
Certified Warranty is in a class all it’s own with regards to requirements as well as attention to detail when preparing the vehicle for its new owner. The Audi must meet certain criteria to even apply; such as a clear Carfax report, up to date service history and less then 60,000 miles on the odometer. In addition, the car must be less than five years old.
After the vehicle has been cleared of these requirements, it then undergoes over 300 points of hands on mechanical inspection; the most of any automotive manufacturer. After the 300+ point inspection has been completed by an Audi Certified Technician, all necessary repairs and/or reconditioning needs will be fulfilled. Such requirements are: tires in “like new” condition (including spare) as well as brakes having a minimum of 7mm remaining (50%) on front and rear and the windshield being free of cracks.
When purchasing your new Audi Certified vehicle (C.P.O.) the goal is for the experience to be as close to a new car vehicle purchase as possible, including the availability of very competitive financing programs.
After you have purchased your Certified Audi the after sales experience and support is second to none, with complimentary 24/7 roadside assistance, destination assistance, trip interruption & personalized trip routing benefits. As well, for your service needs, Audi Care maintenance coverage is available in addition to the balance of new car warranty, complete with no charge maintenance (if remaining).
With all of this you will be worry free with up to 6 years or 100,000 miles of driving in your beautiful Certified Audi. All of this additional coverage with the Audi backed warranty is only available at an authorized Audi dealer, so come see me (Scott Mitchell) today at Audi Wilsonville.
