black friday = day to put on winter wheels.

For some people ‘Black Friday’ represents a ridiculous day of USA consumerism with people falling over themselves to save $5 on a rubbish sweater for someone they despise anyways….for me, black friday means it is the day to get my matte black winter wheels on my daily workhorse;  my 2012 Audi A3 quattro.

video of the day. RS3.

I really love my 2012 A3 quattro….in fact, in terms of performance, usability, practicality, quality, comfort, looks, and overall balance—-i think it’s the best car i’ve ever owned.   I will be writing up a 1 year review of the car very soon, as that time is coming—That being said, there isn’t a week that goes by where i don’t find myself imagining that it is an RS3.  I’m still upset that Audi of America decided not to bring the 8P RS3 to the US market.

this video is in spanish, but doesn’t prevent enjoyment of seeing the finest hot hatch in the world in action!

B20 GT.

Would there be any better way to take one’s ferociously cool Lancia Aurelia B20 GT coupe to get restored, than to take a road trip to Italy to get it sorted out?  Well maybe—-it would be to be driving with a B24 Spyder alongside I suppose!

how do you make the ugliest car uglier? (part 2)

yes. you paint it matte black and murder out the wheels and lights on a Toyota Prius.  Message to the owner: your “car” looks like crap!

the USA-elusive TT quattro sport.

This is a tasty TT quattro sport on sale in the UK, tuned by Jabbasport; They’re claiming 450hp, which is quite a bit more than the 350hp that Stage 3 tuning takes it to quite predictably.  The quattro sport, was the highest end MK1 TT which was sold in Europe; stock it had a slight upgrade in power (240 vs. 225), upgraded suspension, special GT3-like seats, special wheels, special 2-tone paint schemes, different front bumper (3.2 bumper) and rear seat delete.  18,000 GBP for this 2005.  Tasty……and everso elusive here..

Pogea Racing A1.

the Audi A1 is another in the line of mythical Audi creations which will likely never hit the US shores; but that doesn’t stop me from lusting after one.  This one is a great colour, with dark wheels, and an aggressive lowered stance.  If you were to ask me to build an A1, i would want to build it like this—-possibly minus the wacky retro-y cloth interior though….am more a leather person myself.  Unfortunately Audi aren’t keen on bringing this generation A1 to this country; or it would DEFINITELY be in my garage as a city commuter.  156hp in a 2300+ pound body sounds damn good to me!

foto(s) of the day. a MK2 TT?

Well i’m not a fan of the MK2 TT’s weird styling….in fact i think the styling sucks!  But holy hell i spotted this one linked to on QW today and i gotta say it looks great…probably the best modified MK2 i’ve seen and definitely the only NON TT-RS MK2 i’ve seen that really gets me going.  So maybe it does have potential?

……but it’s no MK1….that’s for sure…..but this one looks pretty damn good.

Unsold-in-the-USA car of the day.

Why AUDI doesn’t sell this in the USA, i have no idea.  This Audi S5 Sportback is simply gorgeous in every way.  In many ways, it’s even better looking than the S5 Coupe.

BRING IT TO THE USA, AUDI!!! Hopefully in time for when my family ‘expands’.
