With Audi being owned by VW and VW owning so much great diesel technology, why not push a little of it into an R8? Well, the folks over at Audi have decided it is time for that to happen. The 2016 model year will feature a diesel variant of the R8. No one is certain yet what engine will be used, but it is currently… »
Just got back from getting an iced coffee, and even though I parked in the end corner, the right side of the rear bumper just got badly scuffed.. I'm beyond enraged right now, and the asshat didn't leave a note either. 6 month old car. So difficult to keep my cool. There are surveillance cameras there, I want to get… »
