    What's your car?

    @Karmann, welcome to the site. Love your car (seen it before on audiforum.nl though). And I would wait to get it chiptuned until it's broken in.

    Audi RS3 coming soon!!

    There most probably won't be an RS3. I think that the car you're seeing is a racing testmule.

    Whats a good second hand relatively powerfull car? (UK)

    Toyota MR2. Mid-engined, rwd, t-roof and you can get it with an 2 liter turbo engine with 200hp.

    Idling turbocharged engine?

    As stated before, cooling down the turbo by idling the engine isn't too healthy either. You need to drive slow (like with a cold engine) so it can still breath and the air will help the cool the oil.

    Idling turbocharged engine?

    You're right, BUT the thing is that the turbo's on diesel engines aren't that big (they're actually very little), and don't have to work too hard (diesel engines aren't sporty, low rpm,...). So it doesn't matter THAT much on diesel engines.

    The car Ferrari should have raced (no 56k)

    There's a thread with a picture of a truck full of ferrari's. The F50 on that picture is one of them (didn't know about the quantity though) Edit: This thread, and it has been mentioned there already.

    Idling turbocharged engine?

    Letting the turbo's cool down with an idling engine isn't healthy either. You just need to drive easy when cooling down the turbo's. And what worries me most is that those press cars aren't broken in. I'm even scared that they drive them hard when the engine is still cold.

    Fuel octane rating for Cosworth Sapphire 4x4

    The octane ratings are different in Europe and US (Canada prob too). Something with using the average of 2 rates in the US and using the highest rate in Europe. Don't know it for shure, but the numbers aren't the same.

    Question about Ferrari f430

    Maybe a temp. meter? Lots of cars have them there.

    [Spy] 2007 Audi R8 (Audi's first supercar)

    It's not 100% correct anymore. It's too old. (look at MG, Lotus,...) And I don't know if they're going to build an 600hp version. They have to think about the competition with the gallardo (even though that's more murci territory). There are rumours about a V10 diesel version though. This is...

    [Spy] 2007 Audi R8 (Audi's first supercar)

    Actually, VW owns Audi. This is quite old, but you get the idea. Edit: Comparison between test mule and concept Johan
