AUDI R8 42 ZO6 vs Audi R8 V-10

Has anyone driven both cars to give a good comparison. I know there is a huge dollar difference but is the audi worth the extra cash

I instructed in an R8 last month. It was a base level car. It seemed to handle fine and the ride was smoother than the Zs. HP was down. The seats had more lateral support by cupping around a persons back and sides like the C7 seat does. It had the old Ferrari style gated shifter (the shifter moved in slots placed on the console) which I have always hated. Bill

AUDI R8 42 ZR1 vs Audi R8-5.2

Newbie here please help. I have been checking this board for the last 3 years you guys and gals are great. Any member out there own both I am torn between a new ZR1 or a new audi R8-10cyl-5.2. Money not much of issue. I am not going to track car. I currently own from new a C6-2006 4spd-26000mi.

AUDI A4 B5 99 a4 b5 headlights seat covers

Hey all My leather seats are torn to and a previous owner actually spray painted them black from the original tan (can only imagine why...) Its a all black car inside and out mostly. Id like to go for a smoked type look on the outside all around. Anyway I was curious if anyone had suggestions for a new full set of seat covers and also new headlights. for headlights I was looking at this selection

seals on them arent great and they need to be resealed to stopprevent them fogging up. I dont know why I cant find any. If you wait a couple days they might show up. I paid 230 for mine and two hours later the price was relisted at 210. Arguably the best headlights you could buy are Valeo one piece projectors like in the updated version of the B5. They are super expensive. European Styling for audi

BMW SERIES 5 E60 E61 How Would a 535i do vs an Audi R8

I know - two completely different cars but...would I get smoked or would it be respectable Were talking straight 20-80 sprint... I only have two performance mods - a JB3 and RPi exhaust. My cousins coming to town driving an R8 and I wanted to use some insight from here to bait him into a little comparison shall we say...

The 535 is no match for an R8. I dont care what mods you have. You simply will not get that power to the pavement very effectively. In addtion the weight of the 535 will prevent you from seeing much of an improvement in such a contest. This is why a 500hp Corvette is no faster than a 911S ( 355 hp) from 0 to 60. By the way the 911S according to a video seen on fifth gear had the 911S accelerating more

BMW SERIES 6 Audi Driving Experience

I was at an audi driving experience event today at the Palm Beach International Speedway. Got to drive the following cars R8 RS5 S5 S8 S7 S6 and TTRS. The event featured 3 major events. 1) Real World Driving- we took the cars around town through a predefined course. Here I drove and was driven in the S8 which felt very luxurious and fast too. Its a beautiful car but I enjoyed sitting in the back seat

AUDI S5 headturner Public opinion

My friend and I just took out the RS4 and brand new S5 for a test drive in Berlin Germany. The RS4 was a Nov2007 (78k and 10000miles) 420ps Imola yellow convertible and the S5 was a 2008 (5000 miles) 354ps black hard top. As a test car the S5 was tripped out with every conceivable extra and looked really great. Amazingly we were given the keys and told to come back later. Nobody from audi went with

TESLA ROADSTER Tesla Model S P vs BMW M3 sedan (and everything else out there)

Introduction If a book is written in the year 2100 on the decisive moments of the 21st century my guess is that in addition to Apples contributions Tesla will be up there as essentially changing the world as we knew it. I am convinced that what Tesla has done here is profound and after the dust settles and the pessimists and oil lobbyists disappear in a few years people will view the Tesla as a milestone

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 2 yrs and I still love my E93.

Just turned 2 years on my E93 335i - with about every option and just under 15K miles. Bottom line the car is rock solid great handling and performance and I just love it. Observant folks here will notice that I have it for sale but only so I can trade up to an M3 About 2 years ago today I was driving my car top down through Budapest along the Danube - still fantastic memories from that trip.

Obviously price is not as big an option as it is with the majority of us so Im just curious if it made your list at all (For me personally if I was ever to hit Mega Millions it would be a used Ford GT audi

TESLA ROADSTER First test-drive impressions from Norway

I did my first test-drive of the Model S P85 yesterday in Oslo. The weather was not ideal it was -5 C snowing sleet and since it was friday at 3.30PM most of the test drive was spent sitting in rush-hour traffic. I did get to drive a few kilometres in the bus-lane on the freeway though sliding past 2-3 lanes of standing traffic on my left. Wonderful and a reason by itself enough to buy a Tesla if

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 S4 vs 335330328325 interior

Just look at this sexiness. The red stitching really gets me going. Two tone silk nappa is extra alcantara inserts are standard. For those of you paying close to 50k for a 335i dont you deserve a different interior than that of a base 328i More importantly whats BMW doing about this Because over on the audi forum the most popular thread is people who traded in their 335i comparing and contrasting.

Weird - my receptacle has a beautifully damped hinged cover - push it down and it opens to reveal an ashtray and a 12v socket (theres one in the boot too). My cupholders also work fine but then we have much smaller drinks containers audis get lots of praise for their interiors and many buy them for that very reason forgetting handling and chassis dynamics. I used to be a fan of audis - my dad had three

youre in a real-world setting. Its hard to believe were saying this about a sedan that measures 195.6 inches overall and weighs more than 2 tons but the facts are the facts. And the Panameras balance (the weight distribution is 53.4 percent front46.6 percent rear) massive 20-inch Michelin PS2s and all-wheel drive take its cornering speeds to levels once reserved for all-out supercars like the audi

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E Key specific memory

I am contemplating ordering an E350 (actually a Coupe) in the UK. As yet we do not get the option of Keyless Go nor is the Driver Assist Package available. Im delaying as I suspect that both may become available later (and hopefully the Split View video monitor). However I asked about Key Memory (ie seat mirrors radio presets and AC settings memorised for each key) which I was certain I had come across

I read a rumour that it is there buried amongst the engineer accessible menus. I would not be at all surprised as we have an audi that has had all kinds of weird and wonderful (albeit minor) options turned on by a friendly whizz-kid with a laptop and VAGCOM software. As an example audis R8 supercar and RS versions of their regular models feature a needle sweep of the speedo and tachometer on startup.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 I could use a little more clarification with leather vs alcantara

I test drove another zhp today. This one was Silver Gray with alcantara. The car had only 65k miles. I am not too impressed with the alcantara wheels. I can see myself buying a leather M wheel with the red and blue stitching. The wheels feel fuzzy to me. I think I prefer the leather. Also I am not so sure that the alcantara seats will wear as well as leather. The sued seems to matscuff on the seat

intensive and not particularly durable). Think about it because your car will spend a lot of time outdoors and is only climate controlled when its running its effectively a rolling greenhouse.

BMW SERIES 5 F10 F11 Has VW been caught bribing the motoring press

I have long suspected the medias bias towards audi over BMW has been rigged. Reading this latest news about The ADAC inflating the vote for Golf as car of the year by almost 10X raises suspicions. While there is no evidence yet that VW instigated this one wonders why a journalist would place his career at risk just for a love of the VW Golf. I suspect there were incentives from VW involved if not cash

are by no means competitive. The Q7 A8 and the R8 being the only exceptions. I was interested in the RS7 a few months ago. But when I got into the details it was evident this was an M5 competitor made with 75% of the budget - large swathes of cheap plastic (dash center console cup holder lid doors). - steering wheel pedals are plastic and they bend when you pull them (Porsche and M use metal) - audi

FORD Daydreaming

Alright guys many of you dont know me from the next person but I am a bit of a dreamer. I spend countless hours just imagining how good you could make a vehicle whether it be a classic 70 GTO Judge or a new age GT 500 or even a used 99 F-150. One of the biggest things that has been on my mind lately is the power-to-weight ratio on the Raptor. I saw the post where Hennessey put a blower headers cat-back

BMW SERIES 5 F10 F11 Advice Needed Compare 2013 535i and 550i

In 2009 bought a 2006 CPO 550i with Sport Package and most options and have enjoyed trouble free use and new found addiction to BMW handling. Now considering configuring a 2013 535i or 550i for purchase. I will try to drive cars confiqured like I want but would appreciate any insightexperiences with these 2013 models including any new problems (i.e. like the high pressure fuel pumps on 335 and 535

Quote Originally Posted by denniscasey Today test drove 2013 535 ix with base suspension but 18 way comfort seats ( a requirement I have) and a very loaded 550 ix with Dynamic Handling Package among many other options. Both cars had two buttons on console marked Sport and Comfort and I tried both settings in both cars but didnt see a huge difference. The main point of this post is I have to say I like my 2006 550i with sport package better than either of the 2013s. When I drove my CPO in 2009 it gave me that wow factor and I still get that feeling when I drive the car. When I stepped out of my 2006 550 i and then drove the 2013s I felt the cars were smoother and maybe quieter but neither one felt as responsive or as connected to the road as my 550 i. The sales person actually agreed with me but blamed it on the 8 speed transmissions vs my 6 speed auto-- the 8 speed giving a smoother but not as snappy a feel to acceleration. It could even have to do with the fact that both the 2013s were AWD vs my RWD. With more time spent in the 2013s I dont doubt that I would see and feel the differences between the 535 and 550 (just based on horsepower and torque published data) and I would agree that both cars are more refined and smoother than my old 550 but maybe not as fun Driving home in my old car I actually began thinking I would just keep it and drive it into the ground (money I save on depreciation will more than pay for repairs I think) and just dont take it on long trips where a breakdown would be a problem. And I wont have issues with run flats (my old car has conventional tires on it and the doughnut spare in the trunk). Apologies for not giving a comparison between the 2013s I drove but in the time I had to do some freeway driving and some twisty rough back road driving neither car was as fun as my old 550i. And not fair to compare the two 2013s in the limited drive I did. You are not the first to say that. My advice keep your car for a while. The F10 LCI is around the corner and somewhere around 2016 we should see Porsches five series which is rumoured to be built on a new platform to be shared with the new Lambo Gallardo and new audi R8. This should be a fun car.

BMW Z3 E36 So what are people buying after the Z4M

The title says it all really. In my downtime I find myself always checking out different cars. Every car I like that I think compares with the Z4M Roadster is up their in price.

I have yet to drive a cayman S but I dont

but every model below it or the GT3 just isnt worth the money. The fun factor isnt there you cant toss them around (unless you like driving backwards) and I feel like a guy who just finished my residency and is now a real life practicing doctor. I have no medical degree at all so I cant find a reason to buy a Porsche less than the turbo or GT3 and theyre both out of my range. I like driving the audis

Hopefully soon to be owner of 08 Z06

Hi guys my name is Mike. I am strongly considering buying a C6 Z06 by end of the winter. Ive had the pleasure of driving a 2012 C6 base and I was quite impressed. I am looking into getting the Z06 because I plan on tracking it and it seems to be track ready right out of the box. 5050 weight distribution big brakes plenty of power etc. Currently I am looking at 2008 models since they come with the TR6060

Thanks a lot guys for all of the info. It really helps me get a better understanding of the few points of concern with the Z06. Ive thought of the C5Z but I really like the wider larger displacement C6Z. Ive already tracked quite a few cars. Light moded Prelude 400whp Civic E36 M3 2.7TT S4 audi R8 Ferrari F430. All of these cars are fun in their unique way. I am not looking for a dedicated track car.

TESLA ROADSTER Carbon Fiber Exterior Accents

Hi there Im new sorry I cant figure out how to use the search in an advanced mode to find what I want but am looking for pics of the carbon fiber exterior accents on performance model. Im getting white performance and it looked like in the delivery video that the windows had a dark trim on them so I wonder is that carbon fiber I thought the window trim was always chrome and dont see any mention of that anywhere. Thanks for the help Taylor

That is total BS There are tons of companies that make carbon fiber front splitters that hold up. My buddies Porsche has one and it looks great. I cant believe that the only difference to enhance performance besides the motor and possible battery pack is a small lip on the back of the trunk. Tesla would like us to plunk down money in the neighborhood of an audi R8 to get a car that looks almost identical

Tesla would like us to plunk down money in the neighborhood of an audi R8 to get a car that looks almost identical to the 50k model. No interior seating differences or leather options or brakes. Come on Well you do get the option of the 21 carbon grey wheels if you get the performance. Those are pretty distinctive.
