    Audi has some cool stuff, good lokign cars awesoem interiors and options. That being said i would never own an audi out of warrenty, there stuff breaks plain and simple. The prices and labor at audi dealers is insane and they try and make there cars unfriendly to local shops with odd tools and training needed.

    yeap because of they are europian cars... their part so cheap here and you can find everything for them in here.
    think about my situation here; i am in germany and i cant find anything for my car and i have to order everything from usa. it is really hard for me because most of the companies wont ship to APO address. i think it is bs because APO address is legit and still usa zip code... i cant even get a wheels in germany because they not design for american cars. for example today i find a nice 17 inch wheels but i cant get them because they told me that i need a center ring????? it is plastic and it is adapter but i dont know what the hell is it. i want to finish my overseas tour and go back to usa just because my car

    Guess what, subaru, toyota, mitsu are all jap companys. There parts are cheap as shit there is no reason Audi maintanence needs to be as pricey as it is. All the car companys that sell in america have there own divisions for different countries and so they should have there own parts aswell.

    o please. lets not talk about those japan cars... do you know you can buy a supra here 9000$ many soldiers in germany buying them and they all sitting at craft shop waiting for parts. skylines,supra`s, mr2`s you name it. they are not a car they just a cheap as toys.
    guy selling all the supra`s offer any car in the shop for my TA and money on it and my answer is not in this life!!!! there is a gm dealer here and there is nothing in it. they cant even fix my car but it is a gm dealer. for inspection i needed a windshield spray nozzle and its coast me 57$ !!! is it fair? not but they charged me and i bought it because i need it.

    won my first race in my TA. i was riding with my friend brandon out of sonic and onto the highway. a mile later, an awful sounding(had on of those bazuuka mufflers) cobalt ss s/c kept speeding up and slowing down next to me, he had too much tint(of course) so i couldn't see what he was motioning to me, but finally that catback 4 cylinder got annoying. so i just waved him goodbye, pulled ahead in about 4 seconds time, put my blinker on, moved in front, and left him there

    If and when you do race , on the street or track...I recommend the track, know your opponent ,don't go into it blind, it is ok to ask about him or his car, or just watch a few or his runs or matches, and if you know your car, LIKE YOU SHOULD.
    remember before you put your reputation and equipment at stake , just run you car hard enough to barley beat him,
    there is nothing more satisfying than barley beating some punk, just to have him go and spend his whole paycheck on his car ,plus the bet he just lost to you, just to try to beat you ,
    and then coming back a week or so later and you beat him by the same distance again.


    What I am saying KEEP AN ACE IN THE HOLE and never let anyone see your hand, win loose or draw, never run your car all out unless you know for sure that you have to .
    Very Very WELL PUT

    Cheers man

    well, as for specifics i am a little fuzzy. they were the bad boy ls6 casting patiot heads tht cost 2 grand.
    i got for 300 dollars.
    came off of a stroker 6.0 that blew up.
    i made the mistake of not flowing the heads
    i can only go off of what the guy said "they flow as much as a ls7 head"
    not 100% sure if thats possible with a ls6 casting head though.
    and i made one other mistake. your intake is different, my bad>.<

    Some simple rules for Newbie Street Racers

    1) Take it to the Track
    For many obvious reasons the Dragstrip is the best place to run. Many Clubs have track meets or rentals where people can match up for grudge races. Get involved with this you may find it more fullfilling, and a few bucks at the track is better than a few hundred in court.

    2) Keep your Ego in Check
    Avoid racing much slower cars, even though some people need to be put in their place. Pay attention to your surroundings. Don't take unnecessary risk for the sake of Ego.

    3) Know your Opponent
    When possible while on the road take notice of possible opponents. Keen eyes and ears can help aleviate possible embarresment.

    4) Don't be a Jerk
    Always make an attempt to converse before or after a race or at least give the thumbs up Win or Lose. Friendships can be made this way because most people can appreciate a Fast Car.

    5) When is a Race Over ?
    When the first guy lets off /or The out come is Clear. The winner lets off when he knows his opponent won't make up the difference. The loser lets off when he knows he can't make up the difference. The Ricer flyby does not mean your the winner.

    6) Laws of Attrition
    The more you race on the street the better your chances are of getting caught. Some people are lucky but most of us will evenually get caught. Out of the way locations can help but the danger is still there.

    Most of this is pretty much commmon sense it is really for some of these younger people. Most young people are impulsive. Hopefully this will help you boys & girls to Think before you Act

    Yep, a weekend ago i was at a local street racing spot sitting at a light with a car in front and about 15 behind. A 5.0 is sitting next to me reving a little, the car has some oddly colored smoke coming out when it was reved in neutral. So i say that smoke doesnt look good, he says "you wanna see smoke?" and started a brake stand, the whole time i know there is a cop in his lane about 5 cars back. The cop puts on his sirens and starts to creep up in the E-lane, the 5.0 guy stopped when he heard the sirens and when the cop pulled up next to the 5.0 he shouts i was the red civic and off the copper goes to chase down a mid 90s civic ex with a fart can.
