      Japanese modding is not really low key to begin with. Artis took a C6 A6 and applied a diamond patterned film over an Audi A6 and then painted on top of it with an extremely shiny black finish. There is more to the car than just the paint being lowered with a body kit. However, the paint work is what stands out and clearly was designed to do that. Well then, mission accomplished. ...

      Here we have a comparison of Tial 605/770, GT 2871, and K04 turbo B5 S4 setups all compared on the same dyno. These were done same day, same place, and show a nice overview of the potential of the various turbo choices for the B5 S4. ...

      We know a new RS6 is coming. We know rumors are that the V10 will be ditched in favor of a smaller displacement V8 twin-turbo (giant mistake in our opinion). The horsepower is likely going to be around the 600 horsepower mark and we have no idea if it will come to the United States but here are some rendering of what it may look like. ...

      The Audi A1 can now be ordered with a 1.4 TFSI motor putting out about 185 horsepower and 184 lb-ft. What is interesting about this motor is that it is both turbocharged and supercharged. The supercharger is active from low revs up until 2,400 rpm at which point a turbo takes over past 3500 rpm until redline. This allows a larger turbo used for efficiency reasons up top that does not have to be concerned with low rpm spool, witchcraft is clearly at work. We wait for some tuner to figure out how to prevent the supercharger from disengaging as well as getting the turbo to kick in earlier for a real kick in the pants. ...

      The compact SUV segment is heating up. The Audi Q3 is officially coming late this year with a 2.0T FSI motor. The car will be available in automatic and manual. No telling if it will make it to the United States although with the American public's obsession with SUV's it is a very good bet. No official photos exist yet as the car has not been revealed yet but if it looks like this rendering bring it on. Expect the official unveiling at the Frankfurt Autoshow in September. ...

      UK design house Project Kahn has created a widebody package for the Audi Q7. It obviously consists of wide fenders (duh) as well as modified front and rear bumpers along with the side skirts. The wheels are Kahn designed as well. The interior gets attention with a bunch of badges and lcd screens which are not pictured. Overall, it's different, but it is more for people into "bling" and getting attention over substance. ...

      This is a great video that shows a bit about the inner workings of HRE and their wheel philosophy. It also shows just how much weight can be dropped from a car where it counts by going with an HRE performance series wheel. Definitely worth watching! ...

      The Germany Magazine AutoBild has compared the TT-RS to the Audi RS5. We are a bit surprised with the results as they show the TT-RS as blazing fast running through 402 meters which is a 1/4 mile in 12.2 seconds. That, is very, very fast and faster than the RS5 which has more power although is much heavier. Both cars use DSG transmissions which may account for the great times. Still, the TT-RS does 0-100 mph in under 10 seconds which makes it quite quick as well as out accelerating the RS5 in every test. We must say we are very, very impressed and hope these numbers can be replicated. ...

      Anderson Germany tunes the V12 TDI to be exact. The stock motors already puts out insane torque and horsepower but the Anderson tune bumps it up to 550 horsepower from 500. On the exterior, carbon fiber accents are added as well as a new grille, mirror housing, rear diffuser, and roof rails. A set of 22 inch rims are added with 295 width tires to put down all that torque. The interior is very well done with custom stitching and accents. Check out the pictures: ...

      Car and Driver is reporting that their source in Germany has learned that Audi has registered the SQ5 and RSQ5 names with the copyright authorities in Germany. This does not necessarily mean that these models are coming but definitely is a good sign. In the entry level SUV segment there is no German performance model. The M and AMG models are for the larger ML and X5/X6 models, not the X3 which is slotted against the Q5. We like that Audi is considering a performance variant of their smallest and lightest SUV. We will keep you updated on what happens but we say, bring the SQ5 and RSQ5 on! ...
