    My 240z is from 1971 and the engine did not have had any parts replaced since it left the factory besides service intervals, and it still start the second I turn the key. They just don’t make em like that anymore…

    I’ve never really had or heard about any major problems with Audi’s, and even then, most of what I have heard about is minor electrical faults in ancillary systems, like the indicators… oh, no that’s just Audi drivers not using them 😛
    The only engine related problem I’ve come across is one fell out. The car had averaged 130mph over 3 days, it just gave up. Kind of expected really, I don’t thrash my race car that hard and expect it to survive, and it’s built to take the strain.

    Everyone that disliked this video shouldn’t be allowed an opinion. Probably one of the best Jap car documentaries out there!!

    That can be, I just recently found that statistics, I was surprised too! Audi has a huge variety of engines, some of them are top! But most of them although very great performance are very very very unreliable!

    Rover don’t build any engines today, BMW bought them out, raped them for all their good ideas then killed them off. Made a bomb out of the Mini, which up until the new one comes out have all been Rover design based.
    Audi make great engines.

    JESUS CHRIST IS LORD –

    Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord – GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST, our GOD

    This does not accurately represent automotive tuning culture at all.

    It just smacks of the general hipster BS on Vimeo. There isnt a single part in this video that focuses on a performance car, its all hard parking fashionable car culture for the sake of showing up and showing off. No function.

    The last 5 minutes or so of the video was truly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

    I never really liked Imports im more into American Muscle. But once i see a true Automotive Enthusiast put money, time and effort into customizing the cars that they own, then you have my respect. This video changed my perspective on things. I salute and motivate anyone that has a car to build the baddest machine out there. Fuck the media and the highway patrol! they cant stop us.
