    This drives me crazy. I know so done with the $2000 AMG upgrade and they think that their engine is hand built.

            quattro (meaning four in Italian) is the sub-brand used by the car brand Audi to indicate that all-wheel drive (AWD) technologies or systems are used on specific models of its Audi automobiles. You should fucking know this....

              Some of the M performance BMW's have some pretty impressive horsepower numbers compared to the non-m performance models. The new M340i has 380bhp compared to the around 250bhp of the standard 330i. The X3 M40i also has more than 100 extra hp on it than the standard x3. I'm coming off as a total BMW fanboy right now... I do think that adding an "m package" on a non-m or non-m-performance is stupid and unnecessary tho.

                Wow you'd think you'd do some research before you started talking smack about car brands you obviously have zero knowledge about. Audi s-line is a trim package for A series base model cars , Audi performance cars are S /Sport models and RS /Renn or Racing Sport models . Which are completely different cars with minimal carry over between the base cars and their sport model versions .

                    In all fairness to Audi, Quattro just means AWD. S is a slightly higher performing line with sportier esthetics. At least they aren’t throwing RS on something unless it’s truly a performance vehicle......like *clears throat* BMW with ///M

                            He got auto completely wrong, Quattro is their version of all wheel drive named after the car they developed it for that shares the same name, their s-series is the sport version of their base cars. Their r-series are the race series that concentrate more on performance

                              I was surprised that Toyotas TRD badge wasn't added to this considering they're throwing it on Camry's and shit now. All it adds to them is a inch suspension drop and cosmetics really.

                                You made a video about badge dilution and then said nothing about the Cadillac "V" that was impressively built and then raped and pillaged all within a decade.

                                    I liked that "Diversify your bonds" Reference. But quite wrong about Audi. Their system is easy to understand:
                                    S-Line means that it was given better design and some boost, S means that it is very fast, RS means that it will destroy and humiliate Mercs and Beamers.

                                        Quattro is just Audi’s way of saying it’s got 4 wheel drive. Kind of like Mercs 4matic and BMW’s xDrive

                                                    M used to mean something though.. my old e46 M3s were made at the Regensburg BMW M gmbh factory in Germany whereas my old nonM cars were made like any other boring BMW in North Carolina. BMW M gmbh was its own division and department. Now "X5Ms" and what not are just assembled in North Carolina and nothing means fuckall anymore. (notably the e34 M5 engines were the last engines that were hand assembled at the BMW M factories)

                                                      You also need to look at the total package of these performance lines. Yeah, most don't have much motor performance gain, but for that $2,000 more, you get more than just sportier looks and a small bump in HP. Most will also throw in other options that would otherwise cost extra like blind spot warning, collision sensors, backup camera, upgraded infotainment, etc. All in all, most aren't a bad deal at all, you still get what you pay for.

                                                                                              • Ethan Davis

Almost every toyota has a TRD version with fake quad exhaust, different wheels and suspension, riced out wings, and absolutely no added power or torque. Worked as a Toyota sales man and this was super cringe. I do have to hand it to the TRD 86 though for being sick af
