Fifth Gear's Jason Plato services Volkswizard's VW Corrado VR6 to see if can produce more power
In March 2013 we supplied Fifth Gear with a Corrado VR6 to see if following
a full service and some injector cleaner, whether it would produce more
power. The car was rolling road tested at our premises to get a base
reading after which some Redex injector cleaner was added to a full tank of
fuel. After this tank was used, the car was taken to Millbrook Proving
Ground where it was rolling road tested again and after each service item
was changed. Eventually the car nearly produced the full 190 bhp - what
the footage didn't state was that the car was run on 95 RON unleaded rather
than Super Unleaded which the car requires to produce full power - this was
done to avoid clouding the effectiveness of the Redex injector treatment as
Super Unleaded fuel contains similar cleaning properties.
Audi A4 3.0TDI quattro vs BMW 335d xDrive (F30)
Beschleunigungsduell zwischen einem Audi A4 Avant quattro S-Line und einem
BMW 3er Sports Line. Der BMW hat 70PS mehr wegen des zusätzlichen turbos, aber hat kein Sportfahrwerk. Außerdem
die schlechteren Reifen, die Automatik schaltet etwas langsamer und xDrive
ist nicht ganz so ausgereift wie quattro. Hat der Audi trotzdem eine
2014 Audi A4 Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/a4/2014/?id=32972 The 2014 Audi A4 is a
Premium Compact Car that can be optioned out as a luxury car or a sports
sedan. While it's true the Audi A4 is aging and nearing the end of its
lifespan, it remains a compelling automobile. The clean and conservative
design has withstood the test of time and the interior is filled with high
quality details. Under the hood lives a fuel efficient and powerful turbocharged engine while the Quattro AWD system
makes the car handle on rails. There is very little to complain about when
it comes to the 2014 Audi A4.
The model tested here is the Premium Plus trim which starts at $37,300;
that is until you add on the Navigation Package, Sport Package, and Black
Optic Package. Now the price swells to over $43k. So how does this compact
sedan stack up against the competition?
There is no denying the Audi A4 looks great. The Black Optic Package adds a
set of 19-inch rims finished with a titanium look which are fantastic. The
Black Optics Package also includes a blacked-out grille.
The A4 only has one engine option and that is a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder that
makes 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of
torque. The car feels strong thanks to the high torque figures. The A4 also
manages some excellent fuel economy numbers for an AWD car at 20 MPG in the
city and 29 MPG on the highway.
One of the best things about driving the Audi A4 is the engine. By the
numbers the powerplant does not seem that exciting. But this turbocharged engine has been around for many years
and Volkswagen has clearly refined it so. The Quattro AWD system makes the
car a blast to drive.
