I went to an Audi GTG yesterday featuring a number of new TT-RS picked up by their customers.  Good turn out, but I found these 2 parked next to each other to be quite an interesting matchup.  the BMW 1M and the Audi TT-RS.

I love Audis and all….but that 1M is just irresistable!

Car Geek: Replicating one’s garage in diecast.

It’s no secret I love my 2 Audis. 9 years with the TT, and almost 6 months with the A3! Surely the only geek thing to do would be to collect die-cast versions of my cars and recreate my garage, right!?

To be fair, I have an A3 2.0T titanium edition—-whereas the 1:43 model i’ve bought is actually an RS3. To my defense they don’t sell the 8P RS3 in the US market or else I would have bought one. A second defense is that my A3 has the same wheels as the RS3 (titanium rotors) and spec’d out as close to an RS3 it could legally get in the US market cosmetically.

5-Cylinder Fury: Audi TT-RS & Audi Sport quattro

Fourtitude has posted some absolutely STELLAR photos of the absolutely legendary Audi Sport quattro and the new heir to the throne and future classic Audi TT-RS.  Obviously, being the Audiphile that I am—i was overcome with excitement frantically downloading every glorious photo I could. Here are some of my favourites.  Follow the link here to see the whole huge gallery of Audi porn.

It is a great article as well, with a link to the gallery of 100+ photos at the bottom right hand side of the page:

IEDEI @ the car wash.

I haven’t washed the TT in what feels like months.  It had started to look like a Jackson Pollock painting—-so today, after hours of work this weekend—i decided to take the car in for a wash.  I really don’t like washing my own car—it is a time consuming flush of an activity! So i’d much rather pay others to do it, which is exactly what I did at my local Brooklyn hand wash.  I was joined by some interesting company.

(today i realised my car is quite low…as the R8 was almost the same height)

foto of the day. R5/A310

love this picture.  love these 2 cars.  people don’t seem to understand just HOW SMALL some of the Alpine cars were….the A110 makes the Lotus Elise look like a massive supercar……and by this pic, you can see how tiny even the larger A310 was…

1984 Audi 4000s vs. 2009 Audi A4 2.0T S-Line

4000_vs_a4

FOURTITUDE has a great article profiling both cars, along with some great writing about each of these cars.  Some cool photos too!

“While 1984 may have marked the last year for that early B2 bodystyle, fast forwarding 25 years finds the B8 A4 in its first year of production and times have changed. Audi has matured as a car manufacturer and technologies have come a long way. Materials used to build today’s A4 are some of the finest in the industry and the chassis is more capable than any Audi sedan to date. Pricing has gone up considerably from the ’80s but the car has grown in size while power and efficiency have also made great strides.”

BMW 635csi vs. 645ci…generations.

I used to hate the new 6-series when it first came out, but these days i really am quite fond of it…..Bangle made me a believer!  The original 6-series was a true classic though, and it’s nice to see a pic of them together.  I wish they were the same colour though……
