For the 2009 Audi vehicle line up, a majority of the vehicles will be equipped with L.E.D lighting (Light Emitting Diode). These L.E.D’s will be used in the headlights, turn signals and brake light assemblies. Some of the major advantages of this form of lighting are they consume less energy, the take up less space and are anticipated to last the life span of the vehicle.
With this form of lighting the Audi vehicle will be more visible on the road, making it a much safer in accident avoidance. Audi developed the first all L.E.D light in the Audi mid engine R8 and will continue to lead the way in automotive lighting technology with future vehicles.

I came into the office this morning bright and early and as I do first thing every morning, poured myself a hot cup of coffee at the Quattro Cafe. As I sat down at my desk I found something to be different with this coffee, it tasted delicious!
Excited, I decided to investigate to see what had changed with the coffee we were serving at Sunset Audi. I found we were now brewing a specialty brand of a Portland based company, World Cup Coffee & Tea. World Cup Coffee & Tea is a local, family owned coffee company that strongly believes in environmentally responsible and sustainable business practices. Currently there are three World Cup Coffee stores in the Portland area.
The Glisan store is located at 740 NW Glisan St. There is a second location at The Ecotrust Café at 175 NW 9th Ave, and the newest addition is in Powell City Books at 1005 W. Burnside St, also in Portland.
The first World Cup coffee on Glisan was instantly acclaimed for its beautiful artwork, calm surroundings and of course it offerings of great coffee and tea. The second, The Ecotrust Café is located amongst some of most environmentally responsible companies in the country; such as Patagonia, Wild Salmon Center and The City of Portland office for sustainable development. Third The Powell’s Bookstore location, only a year old, housed in the largest independent book retailer in the country; where you can go to enjoy a good book and a great cup of coffee.
I believe any company in business in this day and age should be as socially and environmentally responsible as World Cup Coffee & Tea has displayed they are. With everything this company offers and such a delicious cup of coffee it is no wonder we are proud to serve World Cup Coffee & Tea in the Quattro Café.
To enjoy a cup and check out the new 2009 inventory, come see me (Scott Mitchell) Sunset Imports at 4050 SW 139th Way, Beaverton Oregon.
Audi’s first Sport utility vehicle, the Q7, was released in 2006 and had been criticized for being late to the game in the world of SUV’s. I couldn’t disagree more.
The Audi Q7 amplifies all the things we look for in a well versed Sports Utility Vehicle. Available in either the 4.2 ltr V8 or the 3.6 ltr V6 engine, the Q7 is well equipped to handle what ever challenge we put it up to on a daily basis. Knowing the Q7 was never intended to be submerged in the swamps of the everglades, it has been well prepared for our daily routine.
The Q7 has been awarded with the top safety pick from the IIHS. With 6 airbags and 5 star front and side crash ratings, safety is never a question.
Driving the Q7 feels more like driving a car then a SUV. With its rigid chassis and firm suspension you are well anchored to the ground at highway speeds and through tight corners. In the city the Q7 is easy to navigate. With its open cabin and rear view camera, parking in a tight spot is made easy. If you are considering your next SUV, think about the Q7 and all that it offers.
When looking, what you will find, is safety, practicality and true usable versatility in the well designed Audi Q7.
As for being late to the game, I believe the Audi Q7 is right on time, with the prefect balance of Sports Utility and performance.
The B7 (2005-2008) model S4 will be the last of the Audi S4’s offered with the V8 engine under the hood packing 340 horse power. The S4 is a beautifully balanced sports car equipped with standard full time 50/50 Quattro drive train that will get you to and from work in any weather condition without breaking a sweat. If a performance sedan, avant or cabriolet is what you are looking for without the compromise of fun and control the S4 should will be your first choice.
If you are looking for a sporty drive and great handling without the compromise of safety or practicality the Audi A3 is the vehicle for you. With freeway millage rated as high as 34 miles per gallon in the 2.0T and top of its class safety ratings, the A3 sportback is sure to please! Find one at Sunset Imports toady!
As the 2008 model year comes to a close, the hand crafted Audi R8 is still sold out world wide. With a waiting list of over 2 years, the success and growth of the Audi brand comes with a price of exclusivity.
Take the already beautiful 2009 Audi TT with its spaceframe technology and optional magnetic ride and make it even more capable by adding 72 horse power and 51 ft pounds of tourqe… What do you get? A truly amazing vehicle! The only question you have to ask yourself is wether to get the coupe or go topless with the roadster.
This is a preview of the 2009 Audi A4 Avant available September 2008 with led lighting and a new body style it will be well worth the wait.
