    Pretender, it's about time you showed us what the next TT is going to like. Surely, it must be close to launch now?

    When do you think it will be shown? Geneva 2014 or Frankfurt this year?

    Everyone who criticises Audi's design seems to forget one very important reason why Audi persists with its current styling cues: customers like the way their Audis look. BMW really lost market share...

    Pretender,

    I think you're artist impression is probably quite close to what Audi will want to achieve, at least conceptually: True to TT's DNA but with more than a hint of Quattro concept and...

    I understand that the TT-RS will be getting 380 bhp while being 70 kg lighter than the outgoing model. Still want that Cayman?

    Qisha,

    If the new RS6 is good enough for Dr and Mrs Pich then it's good enough for me. You've really excelled yourselves at quattro Gmbh this time. It's like a Bentley but lighter and more...

    Since the M135i is newer, you'd expect it to knock the RS3 off its perch. The truth is that the reason why the M135i beats the RS3 is because it is much lighter. They've stripped out a lot of stuff...

    Awesome.

    What a benchmark this car is. So desirable.

    I was recently debating with a friend: new RS4 or S6. That is now a redundant conversation.

    Panzer,

    I am wrong. The EA211 has a cast aluminium engine block. The EA888 Gen. 3 still has a cast iron one. Apologies. The weight reduction comes from reducing the wall thickness to 3 mm (whereas...

    My thoughts entirely. If this engine is to be used more widely, giving it a lighter block makes complete sense. As a concept it works very well. Fives are the new V6s and possibly the new V8s too. If...

    Jeremy Clarkson and the Audi RS4

    I was driving in West London yesterday evening in my black RS3. In front of me, I came up behind a stunning new RS4 in Sprint Blue. I drew level and stopped next to it at a set of traffic lights and...

    :hahahehe:

    Some kind of alloy for the engine block could usefully reduce engine weight by 20-30 kg, no? Factor in a further 80 kg diet versus the current RS3 and a 2014 RS3 weighing 100-120 kg...

    Pretender,

    Autocar gets it right more often than it gets it wrong, so I find this story encouraging:

    Autocar review of B8 RS4 Avant

    Nice write-up by matt Prior.

    Clearly, a great car, but the price is well above 50k once you start to option it. Also fuel economy isn't that great. Despite any perceived shortcoming, if money...
