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 S3 Sportback 2,0 TFSI 265 hp Launch Control Feature in Action
As part of an extensive package of features, Audi included a launch-control
mode that gives you the best possibility of testing the real 0 to 100 km/h
values. This feature requires the rather popular DSG. Here is how it works:
Step 1: Disable ESP
Step 2: Floor the brake all the way
Step 3: Shift into S-Drive
Step 4: Continuing to hold the brake, full throttle on the gas
Step 4: Release the brake
While the RPMs won't go much higher than 1800 before actually releasing the
brake, the Audi S3 Sportback takes off like a rocket as soon as you do let
go of the brake. In less than 6 seconds (official manufacturer value: 5,6s)
you will surpass the 100 km/h mark and after approximately 22 seconds you
will go past 200 km/h.
Needless to say, this is one sweet ride and the S3 Sportback never ceases
to amaze regardless of what may be down the road.
