MAGnificent Customer Service

Hi Barry, 

I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know that I'm the proud new owner of the 2007 RS4 that I inquired about on Dec 9th.  After sending you an email, Brandon Tucker immediately responded with the pictures that I requested.  Since it was the color I was looking for, I had a few specific questions about the car.  Brandon was able to get me the answers the same day and even put me in touch with Brian Young who provided further insight about the cars technical condition.

There are not many RS4's in…

7 things you should know about the 2015 Audi S3


When the Audi S3 debuted, we noticed its numbers were curiously close to the B5 S4 of the late 1990s. Length, width, height, wheelbase, output, and even curb weights are within spitting distance of each other. There are tweaks and stretches here and there, but the new car is a dead ringer at the end of the day. Imagine if the performance-oriented S4 had an 18-year product cycle. After 18 years worth of advancement in chassis dynamics, material science, engine and transmission development, interior design, and stability control, what would Audi debut as a…

MAGnificent Customer Service

I wanted to share my experience with service team at MAG BMW of Dublin.  I brought my vehicle into the MAG BMW service center for what I thought was a simple recall.  However, I was terribly wrong, the service center was able to identify some additional issues that could have resulted in catastrophic engine failure and were able to remedy the issue with an extremely fair and efficient outcome. 


I also want to personally recognize…

 Dec 9, 2014

Volvo has pulled back the curtains on its range-topping V-8-equivalent XC90 T8 drivetrain, and also announced the plug-in model's estimated 0-62 mph time of 5.9 seconds.

The T8's drivetrain features a transverse-mounted compound supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine driving the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic, with on-demand assistance from two electric motors. The engine itself produces a healthy and lag-free 314 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Sandwiched between it and the front transaxle is an integrated starter/generator (ISG) good for 46 hp and 111 lb-ft (133…

Audi says an EV sedan with Tesla-like range is coming in 2017

Audi A3 e-tron charging port

An all-electric car is in the works at Audi that will rival Tesla's Model S. The car will borrow technology from Audi's made-to-order R8 e-tron, and Audi says it's shooting for a range of 450 kilometers (280 miles), or, roughly in line with the class-leading Model S.

"Such a car is under development," Audi CTO Ulrich Hackenberg tells Auto Express. "It is under development and will be in the market for around 2017 but it will not be a sports car." Audi recently started selling a plug-in hybrid in the form of the A3 e-tron, and has…

1991 - 1997 BMW 8 SERIES

It still works, doesn't it? People talk about a car's power, but there's more to it than just what the engine churns out. Some cars have a power over our imagination, to send us scouring through classifieds, scheming over what assets to sell so the dream can come true. The BMW 8 Series is like that.

2015 VW Golf R Euro-spec - Tested

 Nov 21, 2014

In 1989, Volkswagen built 71 examples of the Golf Limited. It was the most powerful Golf until the MkIV R32 a dozen years later. It was powered by a supercharged, 2.0-liter, 16-valve four-cylinder and put 207 hp to the ground through the same all-wheel-drive system used on the legendary Rallye Golf. It had all the high-end features of the day: power windows and sunroof, leather interior, even heated seats. On the outside, they were relative sleepers, all-gray four-doors with single, round headlights and 15-inch BBS wheels.
