Luxury Talk / Re: 6 Times Audi Beat BMW (And 6 Times It Didnít)

I think when the first gen Audi A4 (B5 model) came out in the mid 1990s was when Audi started really competing with BMW in the U.S.  I always lusted after the BMW 3 series until I saw the A4.  My good friend from high school, after he got his first job out of law school, bought a new A4. Black exterior and interior, sport tires, bright red dashboard lighting.  Whooweee.  That was a beautiful car.   

I would agree the B5 is the car that made Audi, together with the first A8 (D2). Even today I think those designs still look beautiful.

In one unfortunate way it was cost cutting compared to previous Audis. The predecessor the Audi 80 was still fully galvanized. The A4 was the first Audi to skip that. The Audi 100 C4 was the last one to be galvanized. I guess with the first 2 A8s, it is a non issue with the all aluminium construction.

Some 14 year old genius will come along and solve it.

We're still at the early phases of that, I fear.

Certainly one of the options, but nuclear fusion seems to be the primary goal for the future.

Imagine if we had kept on researching and refining nuclear power and could just go complete electric with little burning of anything.......

Most modern turbo cars use your pedal input to generate a torque request.  The ecu then keeps adding boost until it calculates you reached that torque request - or you reached a max boost.  So if you watch a boost gauge these days you will see it varies by a few psi depending on temperature and ambient pressure.
