Get ready!! Because this is one car we are getting here! And as a little bit of a teaser, we wanted everyone to have a close up of this amazing Audi R8 GT Spyder dominating a photo shoot – in it’s honor, of course, in preparation for coming to the US. Everyone knows how much we love this car – but a topless version of it, we just couldn’t be more excited for! Enjoy the pics – but it won’t be long before this bad boy is rolling around on a street near you!

To start with this guy needs an I Am Audi Hoodie. But beyond that, all we can say is this A6 Avant is sick!! We hold a special place in our hearts for “stance” and this is a perfect example of that. This A6 Avant is certainly standing it’s ground. We know this look isn’t for everyone and trust us, we’ve heard it all; it’s too low, impracticable, suspension dynamics are ruined, and so on and so on – but that stuff just doesn’t matter. If this isn’t your cup of tea that’s alright!

We love Audi and while that does mean that we have near impeccable taste – it does not mean that we are always tasteful. We couldn’t help but pass up this incredibly strange, and by default, cool video and randomly weird picture for your viewing pleasure. We can’t be certain what it is really about or what the significance of 02.15.12 is – but there is an Audi in the background and that is a win, no matter how you look at it.
Besides that, the song is a catchy take on another song that you may or may not have heard and we pretty much guarantee you will have a hard time getting the beat out of your head. Happy hump day folks – bet you can’t say Meow ten times! Check these guys out on Twitter @
dannieriel & IFckingHateThat.
They say two’s company and three’s a crowd… and in some cases that may apply. But, in this case, and on Valentine’s Day, we would like to say that the only thing better than one true love – is three. Spread your love around!!! Happy Valentine’s Day from I Am Audi!
Its officially Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and with a cluster of women all prepping for such an event, there are also a fluster of men prepping for the event – and that means their cars are getting prepped too. Of course, that is not to say it’s only men who will be prepping their cars, but one in particular in this picture we found on Instagram – we imagine there will be many pictures this week capturing the highlights of such a cool event, but we had to capture the Audi for sure! Have a great day! And if you can think of anything better than fashion and cars, considering it could fall into the girls and cars category, we’d love to hear about it!
Since we are a society driven by always wanting more, and Audi is very intuitive when it comes to the consumer base of the buying segment of the world, it is introducing a TT RS ‘plus.’ Now don’t get too excited if you live in the US, because as with most things extra special in the car world, this slightly hyped up little beast will only be available to our friends in Europe, sadly. The TT RS ‘plus’ will only be slightly different than its TT RS sister, weighing roughly 100 lbs less, but has the option of a seven speed dual clutch s-tronic gear box, as well as a hard or convertible option. There is no disputing this is one sexy car – just try not to hold too much a grudge we won’t be getting the ‘plus’ version, it isn’t all that different; but we understand it is only human nature to want what you can’t have! For more information, click, and as always, if you have an opportunity to visit Europe, or better yet, you live there – send us some photos!!!
We love Instagram – for more reasons than us just loving most all social sites that let us share information we would otherwise not be privy to, but especially when it comes to pictures people take of their cars. It seems to open us up to a world we feel we should have always known about – but never knew we didn’t. There is no question that cars are a great love of people all over the world and that at any given time there are people snapping shots of their beloveds – but we are just feeling particularly lucky to live in a time that we can share all these wonderful things with the push of a button!! Bringing us to our next point; Audi, of course. Check out this Audi on Bentley wheels that we found on Instagram – we love it!! And now you can love it too!!
For more pictures of this B7 A4 on Bentley wheels make sure to follow YoungDan on Instagram. Have a great day!!
We couldn’t help but share this educational image of the history of the Audi logo as we really feel like Audi has come a very long way. The design of today, and the last few years, really showcases the modernization of the brand, without forgetting where it has come from. We thought this was especially pleasing as well as a reminder of just how much History of Audi there is and the constant pursuit of excellence this company has never faltered on. We love it!! And we feel very proud to be part of the future of the company as well – Anyone have any favorites of the logos?? Have a great day!
Well it’s Monday today and for most everyone that means the start of another work week and the beginning of the uphill battle until we see the likes of Friday – so we thought that in the spirit of pushing through everyone would appreciate this view as they are starting their week! Push on friends and enjoy the Audi Girl view!!!
Since we all love our mobile devices so much these days – or at the very least, can’t live without them, it is only fitting that Audi USA has come out with a quattro app as well! The Audi USA | Audi quattro App allows everyone to share their quattro stories and with so many great stories to share and reasons to love Audi, we expect this will be a great addition to the Audi USA Facebook page! A few months ago we also thought it was a great idea to share stories with us and many of you did – we encourage you to share those stories and any other amazing Audi tales you have on the new app and see how you like it! Let’s face it – we all love to talk about Audi and since we also all love the various social outlets that allow us to do so – this seems like a great match! Enjoy!
We love this fantastic picture! Perhaps that is because we can relate to what this looks like on a pretty much weekly basis here in the Pacific Northwest – but we have to say that if we had these cars waiting outside our door for us, we would brave the rain too and be taking them for a spin!! Anyone else have any rainy day Audi pictures they would care to share?? Have a great day – and enjoy the lack of rain we are having!!
If the sight of this beautifully designed and painfully gorgeous Audi S5 Sportback tearing it up in the snow makes you drool onto your keyboard, and you live the US, drooling is likely all you will get to do – that is unless you travel to Europe to see it for yourself! This amazing and slightly updated machine will not be available in the US but that doesn’t stop us from wanting it even more because of that. The S5’s headlights are sporting a new design and the sleek lines, distinctly Audi, have us considering a trip to Germany really soon! We hope you enjoy and if you happen to be in Germany and capture some pics, send them our way! Have a great Wednesday – and don’t forget to wipe your keyboard.
We love I Love Audi on Facebook!Their about section says “Facebook’s largest Audi Fan Site” – Yeah, by a lot!!! With nearly 100,000 fans, I Love Audi has a huge fan base and we have to say we are very impressed! We also want to thank them for their kind words the other day and to keep up all the great work they are doing – they really are doing something that works! Have a great Monday everyone and be sure to check them out on Facebook!
Featured by Inside Line: There is a ton of tech in our Audi A8L — so much that we could blog about its myriad features incessantly (as we have, and will), and so much that we had forgotten to set up the WiFi network. It’s not like Audi is alone in offering an in-car WiFi router, but I love the idea of having this feature in the car, and getting it working was my first order of business. Yet, I’m not sure it’s something I’d use every day. Indeed, the Google Map data that’s part of the WiFi service is cool, but since I’m usually driving, and not sitting in the backseat with an iPad using Facebook, I’m not realizing the full benefits of the WiFi.
Where WiFi really becomes useful, in my opinion, is when you’re out on the road and need a signal strengthener for your smartphone or, more important, when you need to blog and don’t feel like carting your laptop into Starbucks. Audi has chosen T-Mobile (aka, Deutsche Telekom) as its exclusive provider, and despite that company’s so-so coverage in the U.S., it’s still far better than nothing. During the cross-country barbecue adventures of Scott and Scott, their phones were picking up the Audi’s WiFi signal, but they were unable to connect. Upon their return, we realized we had spaced and forgotten to insert the SIM card, which explains this “SIM card no good” display…
Straightening out that issue was as simple as inserting the SIM card in its designated slot under the nav screen. Here you can also see the SD card ports, which are one means of transferring music to the A8’s 20GB hard drive. Although Audi’s MMI system is probably the most straightforward and user-friendly of its kind, the WiFi password (which had already been entered and saved in the car before we got it), is a little bit hidden in the Telephone menu. Here’s the sequence of steps in photos (I shot these in the safety and comfort of the garage, so that’s why the car has no 3G service). Probably the best thing about the process is the breadcrumbing at the top of the display — you never get lost in MMI. Audi provides a free data plan for the first six months. It’s yet to be decided who will pay the bill once that trial period is up.
We love the new Audi commercial that’s going to be featured during the Super Bowl next month and we have a sneak peek for everyone right here on I Am Audi! In the spirit of The Twilight Saga and the love of all things vampire – Audi has it’s own take on the night-dwelling creatures; and a supremely awesome way of eradicating them!! Perhaps this will be the end of the vampire saga we have endured for so long, on the other hand, maybe it is just the start of a better and purely Audi way of handling them! Enjoy – we sure did! You can keep up with all the latest Audi+vampire news on Twitter @ #SoLongVampires and be sure to let us know what you think!
We are pretty positive we speak for most everyone who loves Audi that we can’t wait to see the new RS5 in the US in the very near future!! We thought we’d give you a little taste of it today to help you all through your Thursday’s! We know nothing would make our weekend better than a blast in this incredibly fierce RS5 and something about this color seems to make it even more spectacular – what do you think?? The headlights will be slightly different on the US model thanks to a small facelift but otherwise this gorgeously feisty machine will be ready to blow past drivers everywhere in the US early this year!! Enjoy.
Though we do understand that this latest information coming from Audi AG on the future of Audi being self-driven cars is pretty much where we are headed in close to all aspects of our auto-pilot modern days lives, with our technology advancements seemingly never ending; but the concept of a self driving car does not please us. To the best of our knowledge one of the things we love most about Audi loyalists is that they welcome and love the driving experience! So we do appreciate that this ‘love of driving’ was addressed by Audi AG Chairman, Rupert Stadler in his presentation at the Digital Life Design Conference in Munich, but we can’t help but feel a little sad that even the experience of driving will likely one day be a thing of the past. We are all for technology – but we are also all for driving, for ourselves. Any thoughts?? You can read more about it here. Have a great day!
Everyone knows how much we love Facebook , and all the various other social outlets for that matter, but it looks as though the auto industry’s big names are finally catching the value of it as well. Audi, who is ranked among the highest in social influence in their field, has continued using the social tool as a way of sending out information on its latest projects, not previously released. It is a solid strategy we think, and though not the first time Audi has used Facebook as a way of capturing information from its most loyal of followers, this time it involved information pertaining to the model change of the S5 for 2013. The automaker, on Facebook , released a tease stating it would make available a Special Edition V8 S5 this year to ‘loyalists’ of the previous generation model. We love their approach to getting the word out there and have no doubt most everyone who wants to stay in this very fast paced information age will follow suit in getting their latest endeavors out to mass market – pronto! We have to hand it to Audi though – we love your thinking! Have a great day and for more information check out this article, and of course, Facebook.
Well we can’t say we’re very happy about this latest news piece about our beloved Audi R8. A limo company in the UK has decided to turn the most spectacular of vehicles into a stretched out limo to be used for weddings! While we do have to hand it to them for having some taste in the way of deciding on the R8 to begin with – we feel like alot of that falls to the wayside when it comes to stretching it out into limo form! Now, we may be slightly biased, as our love for limos doesn’t stretch all that far, but does anyone else agree that this is a poor choice for such an amazing car?! Let us know what you think! We may be on our own with this one as bookings for the one of a kind rig are already flooding in – Have a great day and check out the article here!
A snow day is a rare occurrence for us here on the West Coast but last night, and for a couple of days in higher elevations, we have been having just that! We couldn’t be happier about the snowfall and had the opportunity to run around in an eerily empty downtown Portland last making the first tracks in this unfamiliar yet chilly white stuff! We can’t help but think about Audi (not surprising!) when faced this blast of winter – it is so rare the cities in these areas pretty much shut everything down and those who can venture out – should do so in their quattro Audi’s! We can only hope you have as much fun as this guy!! Sadly, pretty much everything that was white has turned to slush in our neck of the woods, but we can’t say we haven’t thought about heading up hill to look for some more! We hope you all having a great few days of snow!!
We follow iJustine on our I Am Audi on Instagram photo stream and today she posted a fantastic picture!! iJustine is an online phenomenon that has made quite a name for herself in the social industry. People love her and we love Audi so this is a great match for us! We also love that internet and the whole concept of social creates real stars in this field. With everything you can do with social and the many various ways you can post everything you do in the world online for the whole world to see, and then make a living at it – this is a huge win in our eyes. We are glad to know there are people out there that know how to work it! Keep it up iJustine and keep loving Audi!! We hope to see more of this happy union!! Make sure to check out iJustine on Twitter.
This is a fantastic commercial! We can’t wait to see it on air officially but in the meantime, you can check it out here!! Enjoy! From The Audi YouTube Channel: “Over 30 years ago, Audi pioneered permanent four-wheel drive with Audi Quattro®. Today it’s the world’s top selling AWD system. But sadly for one tormented soul, its legacy is more a source of humiliation than celebration. Inspired by one of the all-time classics in American literature, Audi re-imagines Herman Melville’s epic struggle between obsessed sea captain and elusive white whale to bring the legend of quattro® to life.”
We’ve said it before and we will say it again – pretty much nothing goes better than girls and cars. Here is just some more proof of that fact for your Friday afternoon!! A somewhat behind the scenes look at some racy Girls with some racy cars. Of course, perhaps nothing makes this better than the fact it is an Audi R8 in the background – but that certainly doesn’t take away from the hotness of everything else. Baring most everything, this guy has great taste – we know you’ll agree. Have a great weekend and enjoy!
Well we are back from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit where we had a fabulous and very busy time! I won’t say that it was car overload, since I think we all know that could never be the case, but this was our first experience at this type of show and it was certainly intense! We thought we would start the day, and since it is our Monday today, the week with a refreshing Audi pic – This one is slammed! Let us know what you think of it since we have seen so many concept cars over the last two days that we need fresh input to determine our thoughts on this one! Enjoy and have a great day!!
Truth be told we really don’t have a back story to this Audi picture , but we like it so we wanted to share it with the World! Girls and Audi’s are never a bad combination – we can’t think of a single instance. So what do you think of this tattooed girl and the R8 ?? We can’t think of a caption and just wanted some help – Have an awesome Friday!
When will I Am Audi get the R8 of our dreams??? Everyone wants an R8 and we are no exception with our #WantAnR8 obsession. We are pretty confident in what we would do if we had an R8 for a weekend – between filming, photography and windy roads, but what would you do if you had an R8 for a weekend? Let us know what tricks you would have up your sleeve if you had an Audi R8 for 48 hours; Would you call in sick to work? Show up to show off? Or not tell anyone and go for your dream drive?? We cant wait to hear – so share with us please!!!
It looks like ‘I Am’ is catching on!! Will.i.am, front man for the Black Eyed Peas, is launching a car company/website which he will call I Am Auto in hopes to bring jobs to the neighborhood he grew up in. We like the fact this guy is all over ‘I Am’ and we love the intentions he has with this project and really, what wouldn’t we like about I Am Auto??! We are always excited to see more ‘I Am’ enthusiasts develop over time and it seems that everywhere we look these days, there is an ‘I Am’ something being created! We here at I Am Audi couldn’t be happier! So please check out I Am Auto online or follow Will.i.am on twitter here. We’d like to thank Jalopnik for their original post and wish Will.i.am luck with this ‘love of cars’ en-devour. Have a great day!
The I Am Audi team is headed to Detroit for the North American International Auto Show this Sunday; it will be a 3 day trip and we can’t wait to get there!

We don’t need more reasons to love Sasha Grey – but if we were looking for one we found it yesterday. Sasha tweeted that she loves Audi and really #WantAnR8 – We think you should have an R8 Sasha and wanted to thank her for having such great taste! Granted, we know most everyone loves Audi and we know they really should – afterall, what’s not love?! But it always makes us happy to know there are always people willing to share their love for the brand with the masses on various social networks!! And of course, we are always flattered to be re-tweeted!! Thank you to everyone for making this such a great year for I Am Audi and for all the retweets, Facebook Likes, comments, Follow Fridays, and pictures you have all shared with us this year – we really appreciate it!! And Sasha, we hope to catch you in an I Am Audi shirt in 2012!!!!!

The four ring manufacturer has just released a branded Audi snowboard through its exclusive parts and accessories department, we believe the board is produced by Monson Snowboards . Its very fitting that Audi processed a snowboard, seeing they offer Audi Skies – a little something for everyone. For a few more pictures of this new Audi product visit one of the Audi stores who will be offering it: Audi Snowboard Pictures and let us know what you think.
It is a dark and dreary West Coast day today but if we had some sand and sunshine and one of these old school Audi Sport Quattro’s – we would be out tearing it up!! We hope you are all having a wonderful holiday and working off at least some of that turkey consumed over the last few days in some creative ways! We would choose this as one of our favorite ways to burn off a few calories – and tires. Has anyone been up to anything exciting over the last few days that would like to share?!! Shank you Audi Blog PL for the great shot, Enjoy!

Nothing is better than starting the day with an Audi R8 out in nature doing what it does best – driving fast and taking corners! It seems like a long time since I Am Audi was at the Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Ca – but this picture reminds us of what an amazing vehicle the #WantAnR8 is and what it is capable of! Today as everyone is working off their turkey comas and mimosa hangovers we are thinking of how nice it would be to ditch the masses of shoppers and head back to Sonoma to take the track full bore – of course, we’ll have to wait out our hangovers too. Have a great day!
Merry Christmas from all of us at I Am Audi !!! In the tradition of girls and cars we thought we would share this very tasteful Christmas wish with everyone who has made our year so great! We hope everyone is enjoying time with their families, yes this includes your Audi’s resting in the garage or making the trip up the mountain or just plain transporting you from one Christmas festival to the next; whatever it is – we wish you all the very best of the season.
It looks as though Audi Canada is making some changes – and those changes involve a new President, Wolfgang Hoffman. Hoffman, who presently works as Chief Operating Officer for Lamborghini America, brings previous knowledge of the Audi brand to the table and has worked on numerous Audi projects in the past. We look forward to seeing the continued success of Audi in Canada and many future endeavors Hoffman has in store for his new team. Lets hope he can influence the group to make some strides in their Social presence as well! Check out some additional information on Hoffman and his new role at Audi. Have a great day!
