Testing the GoPro Hero2 (& external mic) with my 2012 Audi S4
Driving my 2012 B8 Audi S4. Using the GoPro Hero2 with the Audio-Technica
Lavalier external mic.
I mounted the GoPro on my closed sunroof and used the upside down setting.
It's recording in 720p at 60fps.
The mic has a 20ft cable (one of the main reasons I got this model); I ran
it from the GoPro, through the pass-through in the middle of the backseats
and through the boot and have it taped to the rear bumper between the two
Exhausts. I find that it's a great
position for the Exhaust tones but the
road noise gets pretty loud. I think I'll try leaving the mic in the boot

Audi dual clutch transmission technology
The S tronic dual-clutch transmission is a successful technology. It
combines the convenience of an automatic with the efficiency of a manual
transmission, while adding its own dynamic touch. Throughout much of the
model line-up -- from the A1 to the A7 Sportback -- the S tronic is
available in four different versions, with six or seven gears.

New Audi S4 2013
The Audi S4, available in the Sedan and Avant versions, employs the most
powerful engine in the line -- the 3.0 TFSI with 245 kW (333 hp) and 440 Nm
(324.53 lb-ft) torque. The Sedan's average fuel consumption is a mere 8.0
liters per 100 km (29.40 US mpg) -- with an impressive performance: The S4
accelerates in 5.0 seconds from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) and achieves
an electronically limited maximum speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph).
The modified Audi S4 is identifiable from the changes to the headlights,
the bumpers, the air inlets and colors. The interior also contains subtle
changes in appearance. The S sport suspension and 18-inch wheels featured
on the S4 deliver outstanding road grip.
A bestseller has become even more attractive: Audi has updated the A4
series. New solutions for efficiency, driving dynamics and infotainment,
along with an even more attractive design, attest the "Vorsprung durch
Technik" achieved by the A4 Sedan, the A4 Avant, the A4 allroad quattro and
The A4 is Audi's bestseller -- for 39 years now and in its eighth
generation. The brand has sold ten million such models in total. The A4,
with its elegance, sportiness and emotional appeal, forms the centerpiece
of the Audi brand. And now the design has become even more clearly defined
and striking in all models -- the Sedan, the Avant, the allroad quattro and
The new look further accentuates the horizontal lines at the front end. The
engine hood is more arched, the upper corners of the single frame grille
are tapered, and the cross ribs and the Audi rings are highlighted
three-dimensionally. The grille is painted gray, with high-gloss black on
the six-cylinder models or in combination with the S line exterior package.
The redesigned bumpers are striking with their angular air inlets, their
revised grilles and the flat front fog lights. The A4 allroad quattro is
distinguished by its grille's horizontal chrome applications and by the
round fog lights.
The headlights have also changed, with a slight wave at the bottom edges,
and a re-arranged interior. Xenon plus headlights are available from Audi
on request. The LED daytime running lights form a narrow, optically
homogeneous band that remains open in the vicinity of the xenon lens. The
adaptive light together with dynamic and static cornering lights are
available on request.
The tail lights reflect the shape of the headlights, and in combination
with xenon plus have homogeneous strips of LEDs. The bumper with its
diffuser insert has been redesigned, with the Exhaust system always terminating in two
There is a selection of 15 paint finishes, including four new tones. The
Sedan and the Avant offer the S line exterior package, while the Avant also
includes a roof spoiler.
The modifications have changed the dimensions only by a few millimeters.
The A4 Sedan and the Avant each have a length of 4.70 meters (15.42 ft),
while the A4 allroad quattro and the S4 are 4.72 meters (15.49 ft) long.
The wheelbases for all models are 2.81 meters (9.22 ft), and the width is
1.83 and 1.84 meters, respectively (6.0 and 6.04 ft). The height varies
between 1.41 and 1.50 meters (4.63 and 4.92 ft) depending on the body
2013 Audi S4 First Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Quattro Audi S4 and Audi A4 have been
refreshed and revitalized with new and more modern sheet metal, revised
headlamps and minor tweaks to the car's interior. But the real fun news is
under the hood of the supercharged Audi S4. With 333 horsepower and Quattro
all-wheel-drive the Audi S4 is the fastest 4 you can buy today. Of course
that will change once Audi brings the killer RS4 to the States but for now
the S4 is the fastest game in town. We recently had the chance to drive the
new 2013 S4 in the mountains in Beaver Creek, Colorado. Check out this
first drive review as we see how well the new car works at 8,000 feet above
