This is a bit of a late article. It has already ended at the end of last year. It was announced around September 2018 if I remember correctly. It is a shame and was the final nail in the coffin for...

Just to be clear. I'm not saying the front end is washing out. The R8 has immense grip around corners. What I'm feeling is an odd pull on the front end when getting back on the throttle mid turn. I...

I'm not sure they are viewed as imperfections by Audi. My impression I got from the R8 is that it was purposely built safe for those with more money than driving skills. If you push it on the track...

I think a lot of this has to do with one's personal driving style. With ACC engaged one essentially becomes a passenger and may find that the automated driving style does not line up with their own...

I don't have experience with the system in the e-tron, but what mode is your car in? ACC is affected by the current Drive Select mode. In Comfort it should be more relaxed and slow down earlier, and...

There are some features in the updated CarPlay that need to be supported in the car's firmware to be available, but most everything else should work on existing cars. Some of the new features such as...

Not all 2019 MB's have the latest system. Only the ones that have been facelifted or MB released as a new generation. The other's essentially have a system from around 2015/16.

The Huracan Evo hands down. I actually spent quite a bit of time driving various R8s last year. We had a program called Audi on Demand in San Francisco until it was terminated late last year. This...

I've so far used the system up to about 130-140 kmh, that's about 80-87 mph with no real issues. What I've noticed is that sometimes it's a matter of the camera seeing. I've noticed issues in turns...

Yes that's normal, because the brakes are already applied at that point. It just asks for additional pressure from the driver, but ACC "stepped" on the brake pedal for you already. Same happens if it...

That's interesting. I'm wondering what version the GLE has and if the bigger size of the car makes a difference. What you describe is not my experience with my '19 C63S. It does very well at higher...

This is currently all over the press here in Germany. It does affect e-trons up to a certain chassis number and later ones are already fixed. There is a fix, but as always they gonna have to make...

The R8 and Huracan were jointly developed on the same platform. Engine is shared, but Audi and Lambo do different tunes. The Huracan can be had with a more powerful version of the engine. Audi does...

Check the light settings in the MMI under car settings. Newer European cars normally have a setting to change the headlights from LHD to RHD and vice versa. It's called tourist mode. For a permanent...

I also forgot to mention that MB's system can autonomously change lanes on the highway by simply turning on the indicator left or right to signal for the lane change. It's quite cool actually. If...

I just picked up a '19 C63S about a month ago with the latest driving assistance MB has to offer, and Audi's system is not at the same level, but MB's system back in '15 and '16 is also less advanced...

Yes, compared to the S5, the RS5 is harsher. That's by design. It has to cope with the higher engine power and higher speeds that the RS5 can achieve. The S5 is certainly the more livable daily...

You have to be more specific. How was it configured? The RS5 can be had with two different suspensions. The standard suspension is a fixed suspension, meaning it doesn't change between the modes. The...

My answer is not regarding the A8 specifically, but this is a topic that has been coming up with many other models that are losing V8s in favor of smaller V6s. I currently own a '13 RS5 with a sweet...

Pretty much, but not sure where you got 30GB for that money. I pay a little less per 30 days, but it's a 3GB plan with unlimited text and phone calls. I was somewhat limited because I wanted an eSIM,...
