2007 Audi S3 Coming Home Leaving Home function
Your path safely illuminated
Leaving your car at night can sometimes be hazardous -- especially if
you're in an unfamiliar place. With coming home/leaving home function, you
can see your way is clear.
How does it work?
The car is equipped with a sensor that measures the amount of ambient light
and reacts accordingly. If it's dark, the lights go on.
Leaving your car
When leaving the car in the dark, the front fog lights, taillights and
number plate light remain on and only turn off after a specified time,
which can be easily set up using the Multi Media Interface. This allows you
to use the car's lights to guide you to the front door of your house, for
Returning to your car
Similarly, when you unlock the doors remotely, the car's interior and
exterior lights switch on, so you can find your way to your car in the
Coming home/leaving home light technology is standard on all Audi A6s.The
coming home and leaving home features offer increased comfort and security
around your Audi. When exiting the vehicle, the front fog lights, tail
lights and license plate light remain on for an extended period after
locking the doors (coming home). When approaching the vehicle and unlocking
the doors via the radio-operated remote control, these exterior lights are
also switched on, to light the way to the vehicle in dark situations.
For Audi vehicles equipped with Multimedia Interface (MMI®), the coming
home delay time is adjustable, for example, to coincide with the time
needed to walk from the vehicle to the front door.
What's New: The R8 GT is a very expensive and very limited edition of
Audi's supercar; only 333 will be produced for the world, and a mere 90
will come to America. Engineers whittled down the weight with extensive use
of carbon fiber. Lightweight is the word with the R8 GT: The fixed carbon
rear wing saves 11.5 pounds, the rear bumper and diffuser drop another 17.6
pounds and the thinner carbon side blades rid the body of 3.3 pounds.
Besides all the carbon, a lighter battery cuts 20.7 pounds and thinner
carpeting shaves 17.4 pounds. The windshield is lighter than the standard
R8's, and so is the Exhaust system. In
all, the American version of the R8 GT saves 180 pounds over its ordinary
cousin, and European models save another 40 pounds on top of that thanks to
a polycarbonate engine cover and sport seats. Still, at 3538 pounds, the R8
GT bound for our shores is no flyweight.

Audi RS3 Sportback v BMW 1 Series M Coupe Drag Race - Auto Express
Pocket rockets from BMW and Audi go head-to-head in a drag race shoot out
over the quarter mile. But which is fastest?
The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two things in common... Power. Each
offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of torque.
However, they are two very different beasts. The Audi's 2.5-litre five
cylinder turbo drives all four wheels
via a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The BMW on the other hand
has a 3.0-litre straight six twin-turbo.
And it sends all its power to the rear wheels via a good ol' fashioned
