First Look At MK3 Tiguan

Volkswagen has officially unveiled the third generation of Tiguan. Expected to arrive in the US sometime in 2024, there is a lot to be seen here. On the outside the overall size and shape is roughly the same, just a little bit bigger. The LED headlights have a sleek slimmed down look with a lightbar reminiscent of the GTI and Golf R. A big lower grille adorns the front facia as well, with a more aggressive version on the R-Line model. The rear sports a spoiler as standard, as well as a full-width lightbar across the tailgate. Inside you will notice a big change regarding the steering controls. Gone are the days of touch sensitive only interface, as buttons make their triumphant return.

VW has also backlit the climate and volume controls on the 15 inch infotainment system, a point of contention for plenty of mk8 Golf users. There is also a rotary dial that sits in the center console that gives off vibes of BMW’s i-drive system, but sadly doesn’t control the infotainment system as much. You do get stereo volume, the ability to change driving modes, and alter the ambient lighting.

But updates don’t stop there, a new plug in hybrid is available, as well as a mild hybrid. Prices have not been confirmed just yet, but we can guess it will definitely be going up.

Audi Q8 and SQ8 Get New Looks

Audi is also updating their flagship Q8 and SQ8 with some exterior design updates and new lighting tech. The 2024 Q8 will come with Matrix-design LED headlights standard. The digital OLED rear light with 4 different selectable lighting signatures will be exclusive to the SQ8.

The front and rear fascias will undergo new styling elements, new wheel options ranging from 21-23 inches, as well as new exterior colors, such as Sakhir gold for the Q8 and SQ8, Ascari Blue, and Chili red, which will be exclusive to the SQ8, amongst other new design touches will also be available.

The Q8 will have a turbocharged V6 engine that produces 335HP and 369 ft-lbs of torque, mated to an 8 speed Tiptronic transmission and standard Quattro all-wheel drive. The SQ8 comes standard with a 4.0-litre-twin-turbocharged V8 producing 500HP and 568 ft-lbs of torque. These updated SUV’s should be showing up stateside first quarter 2024.

10 to 1 Custom Header V10

10 to 1 Header V10 in an E46 M3

The BMW E46 M3 has achieved legend status and is definitely a darling of the M3 line-up. Driftworks has decided to turn up the heat and dropped an S85 V10 from an E60 M5 into an E46. This definitely wowed people but sadly the car sat unused for about 2 years after its original debut. But new life has been brought into this wild E46. It has been fitted with a 10 to 1 custom header which exits to a five exit exhaust, that helps the engine scavenge its own exhaust gases to build more power.
