Audi's Now Pushing Clean Diesel

We got a press release from Audi this morning with a new commercial they will be running promoting their clean diesel technology in their cars.  As long time readers of this blog and readers of the podcast know, I have, for 15+ years been a big proponent of turbo diesel technology and it's benefits, especially in cost over the much hyped hybrid option.

First VW comes out with an add that's fun and snarky, now Audi, comes out with their message that is pretty straight forward, and makes it's point very directly.  Have a look.

Top Gear Is Back

Sunday the 21st at 8PM on BBC 2 in the UK everyones favorite show about cars and motoring is back. Top Gear returns for it's 13th season. For those of us in North America they run two (usually) series of 8-12 shows a year, but each is classified as a new season.

For viewers in the US I'm sure BBC America will get around to showing this in September or so, but if you want it on Sunday, say about 5-6PM EDT, check out the Final Gear site, they should have the link to download it by then

As per usual they have a couple of great promo for the season posted up. Enjoy!
