รีวิว Q&A audi a8 oem parts

Why did car companies want to create more brands in past years but kill off these brands more recently?

Manufacturers rarely make new brands. What was seen in the last decade was a consolidation that was long overdue from the major OEM's. Many of the brands that went under the axe were individual car companies at their inception, and bought by or traded to the larger core companies overy the last century. The company we know now as General Motor Company recently dropped some brands. Saab, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Opel, and Saturn all died unceremonious deaths or had a significant scope change to minimize losses. The issue was that they bought all of these brands over time on top of their already lucrative Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC. The additional brands simply canabalized their own profits by competing for the same market share. Rather than make 1 million cars with the same tooling, they make 1 million cars with tooling for 5 versions. This just dissolved profitability due to the 5X additional costs of development, manufacture, marketing, and infrastructure (sales service and parts network) for multiple brands for the same chunk of global sales. When they restructured due to bankruptcy, they were forced to finally develop a lean strategy and unload a mass of legacy that held them back. Ford luckily had the foresight to start shedding these overbearing structures of cost prior to the recession. They sold off Jaguar/Land Rover as a package deal, unloaded Aston Martin, shuttered Mercury, and began the turn down of Holden and restructured their relationship with Volvo. This move let them make sales rather than write offs, allowing them to weather the storm better than GM or Chrysler. Ford cut their internal competition and sold of brands that drained resources for minimal return that weren't part of their core competency. Saturn was really the outlier in invented brands, where GM attempted an experiment with Japanese management tequniques for efficiency and quality with a domestic factory. It worked well, and like all things that work well in the face of bureaucratic legacy, it was slowly enveloped and poisoned by the lowest common denominator. Imports like Honda, Toyota, and Nissan made luxury marks to define their offering at a different placement in the market. Acura, Lexus, and Infinity compete at a higher price point to a different audience, so their products don't canabalized sales from their core branded products. This is the same way that Chevy and Cadillac work together, or Ford and Lincoln. But Buick and Olds, or Mercury and Lincoln were just infighting for the same sale. Hyundai finally created the Genesis mark after years of consultants telling them that they needed to differentiate from the midline Hyundai and their more affordable tier Kia, to create a luxury identity. Toyota recently decided to shed their Scion brand because their lower Toyota offering competed directly with Scion. Scion also missed their mark for a hip millennial entry level car away from the boring suburban Toyota, because it cost more than it should and never connected with their audience. In theory it was a great idea, but it was not executed effectively. It's not the last well see of consolidation. Volkswagen auto group is likely to go through similar restructuring. They own Volkswagen, Audi (interestingly formed from 4 companies to initially become Auto Union thus the 4 circles in the nameplate), Seat, Skoda, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Bentley, and a host of other brands. Skoda, and Seat are likely to either get axed or become merged into the core volkswagen brand as they all hit the same market segment. Their diesel fiasco is the perfect catalyst for this change. Hopefully they stop playing with the Phaeton nonsense making $100k Volkswagens that cut into the Audi A8 market, and simply miss the mark.

What’s cheaper to maintain a Porsche Cayenne or a Land Rover LR4?

That's a really difficult question to answer and requires a little bit more specific information. So for example if you are going to exclude the cost of any repairs that are necessary then they're probably almost the same. is this because vehicle manufacturers are really just assemblers and for example a company called ZF makes a few different kinds of Transmissions like the HP 19 and HP 24 and those are in the vast majority of all BMWs, Volkswagen all wheel drive vehicles, Audi's, Land Rovers, Jaguars, Volvo's, basically nearly every European Vehicle made from the late 90s to the current time. With a standard automatic transmission has a variation of one of those two transmissions that comes in front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, and all wheel drive configurations. They're both going to use the same suppliers for their braking system which would be Brembo, Zimmerman, Pagid, and a few others. They're both likely going to have ZF or TRW steering racks, the air, fuel, and cabin filters will be Mann, Mahle, or other similar manufacturers. Similarly with spark plugs the main companies that Automotive companies use are Bosch, NGK, ACDelco, and Denso. NGK make the best spark plugs in my opinion and so even though they're Japanese it's a rare situation where nearly all European Vehicles use NGK spark plugs rather than Bosch now. The engine electronics of both, especially if direct injection, will be made by Bosch or Siemens. The sensors will be made by the same companies, the fuel pumps will both be VDO, as well as the guages most of the time. Essentially Automotive manufacturers really only build the body and the engine of their vehicles the majority of the time and they manufacture very little of anything else. Like many other Industries at this point the vast majority of Automotive businesses that manufacturer Parts have been bought up by parent corporations and so at this point there's 10 or less major automotive corporations in the world and nearly all other brands fall under them. If we were comparing a Japanese or Korean vehicle to either these vehicles or an American vehicle then they would share far fewer Parts, however with American Vehicles especially they are using a ton of European components now as well. Both of them use Pentosin fluids for brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, differential oil, etc. Both of them are going to generally use Continental belts for any timing belts or accessory belts. Water pumps will be graf, geba, or Mahle. Lemforder suspension components, a Swedish company I believe supply most of the suspension components. Bilstein is generally the OEM strut provider for any performance or luxury European vehicle. The light assemblies will be Hella which I believe is owned by Bosch as well now. Interiors are often Recaro. what I think probably gives the Cayenne The Edge is the fact that the Cayenne, the Audi Q7, and the Volkswagen Touareg are all essentially the same vehicle and share many of their components. This greatly reduces the cost of Designing and Manufacturing a vehicle and if you look in the right places online for the parts it drops the cost of the parts as well. It doesn't mean they're exactly the same, for example the Cayenne will have a better Brembo braking system than the Touareg does especially the turbo version. I don't believe the Land Rover has a similar situation, however, I had a 2001 BMW X5 that was essentially a Land Rover underneath because back then BMW owned Land Rover and benefited greatly from their off-road capabilities. I have a degree in Machining as well as being a mechanic so to shed some light on parts cost basically when a manufacturer has to setup to run on New part it takes time and money to get setup to run that part and then obviously the more you run the cheaper it becomes. Not only is Land Rover sort of a niche vehicle that for sure sells less than the three models of Volkswagen Audi group products that share components with the Cayenne, I'm not going to look up the statistics but I would be willing to bet that those three models combined probably sell 10 times more vehicles than the Land Rover does. Another thing to keep in mind is if you're going to need work done you need a shop that knows that model of vehicle, depending on where you live find any Land Rover expert could be problematic other than going to the dealership. neither of these cars are vehicle that you can just roll into a major national chain like Meineke or Pep Boys and have worked on because they don't have the scan tools or the experience it will cost you much more money if you try to do this then just paying the money at the dealer because he'll throw Parts on your vehicle that are garbage aftermarket junk and end up charging you just as much money and then it won't even fix it because the parts are bad out the box or weren't even the problem in the first place. My scan tool to do BMW was $15,000 and then to add Porsche was another $15,000, that company is the only company I know of that makes a dealer equivalent Land Rover scan tool software and you guessed it it costs $15,000. The Cayenne on the other hand, although for some things does need that super expensive autologic program, does share some systems with VW and Audi and you can get a much cheaper scan tool for them from Ross-Tech: Home If I had any advice for you it would probably be to forgo the Cayenne and get the Audi or Volkswagen instead. The parts will definitely be cheaper, you can use the cheaper scan tool that I linked you above which is actually affordable, And certain models are exactly the same. For example the model that they called the V6 is actually the VR6 3.6 l which is a 15 degree Bank V6 with 1 cylinder head that is used in Volkswagen Passat, and a variant of the R32 VR6 which is actually a variance of the 2.8 VR6 is that date back to the early 1990s in Volkswagen and Audi vehicles and they're Bulletproof, they were initially designed to be diesel engines and they can support over 400 horsepower without needing any engine internal modifications done. The V8 non-turbo engine is also going to be the same engine you can get in various years of Touareg and Q7 which is a 4.2 L V8. Those engines are A variation of the 2.8 L and 2.7 turbo V6 engines used in the A4, A6, Passat, A8, and S4, in a similar manner to how Chevrolet made the 4.3 Vortec V6 using the same Pistons, rods, and other internal components that the 5.7 liter or 350 small block used. They actually use the same valves, timing Adjusters, and other components even as the 1.8 turbo. Because Volkswagen, and Porsche share so many of these designs in which the parts are often the same exact part, and if not it's the same design but we just maybe with a different timing belt length for example, drastically cuts down on the amount of problems they have. Think about it like this, the 2.8 liter V6 came out in the late 80s early 90s, even though they later went to to cams in each had instead of one, the timing belt water pump setup with the thermostat remain nearly identical when they switched to the 30 valve 2.8 liter in the late 90s, and then they made the 2.7 liter turbo which was again and identical setup with an identical valve arrangement with the exception of sodium-filled exhaust valves, and then the 4.2 liter V8 again is the same so for 30 years nearly they've been running in the same exact setup with slightly different parts but arranged exactly the same so they I have eliminated all the issues with it. You can get under any Audi carlate 90s to current as well as 98–04 Passat, and suspension setup is visually indistinguishable across the A4, A5,A6, and A8. And the A3 is identical to the Jetta, Golf, GTI, and New Beetle. They might change the spring rates warehoused if the shocks or struts are, or put larger brake rotors on but those things aren't going to cause malfunctions because it doesn't change how the stresses from driving the vehicle are absorbed by the components. So to sum it up if you can't afford the turbo Cayenne, and you're going to be buying one that has an engine that the Q7 or Touareg share, you're probably better off just buying the Audi or the Volkswagen. The portion might be slightly more impressive to some people but honestly the Q7 is still an extremely nice and impressive vehicle unless you're running with millionaires as friends. there are some expensive things about these vehicles, for example a brake job even on a Touareg is over $1,000 in Parts at wholesale cost. The center driveshaft bearing 10 to fail and you'll get a thumping or clunking noise when the wheel is turned to full lock in a parking lot that sounds like it's coming from the rear end and there are companies that make a replacement Center bearing but when I tried to just do that to a couple of customer Vehicles they ended up coming back later having failed less than a year later and I ended up having to warranty it and put the thousand-dollar drive shaft in any way. if you're buying used you absolutely should spend the $100 to have a pre-purchase inspection done at a shop that specializes in Volkswagen, Audi, and or Porsche before you buy the vehicle. I would often get customers that did not heed my advice and would be in tears in my customer room because their dad or their husband or whoever used to be a Chevy mechanic in the 80s and thought that he could do the buyer's inspection and these vehicles have almost nothing in common with other vehicles even a really good mechanic who specializes in American cars will miss a ton of things because they don't know to look for them and they're not common problems on other vehicles. Get it inspected by a German Master Tech or a shop that is very highly regarded for European vehicles and preferably German vehicles.

How much better is a performance brake disc compared to a stock version?

Here’s some relative facts about brakes, performance brakes, performance brake marketing companies, car magazines and car enthusiasts who like cool stuff. Peter Fabian gave a nice overview, especially his point about street vs race. First of all, there’s not really a thing called “performance brakes” from an engineering and reality standpoint. There most certainly is from a marketing standpoint. So now that I’ve confused you, let me explain. Automotive brakes are designed to behave a certain way. They have a functional design envelope and most cars are about the same, some a little better, some a little worse. A larger/thicker/heavier rotor may actually be a more stable braking experience. A thinner/smaller/lighter rotor may feel much the same, but may be more prone to decay from heat, as well as “warping” in certain thermal situations. There’s no magic to brake design. The “performance brake” marketing business has done a magical job convincing people they need different brakes. In reality, they don’t, unless they drive at the limit of speed ALL the time. Almost nobody does. Now, lets look at the brake components for cars. Lets focus on disc brake assemblies. There are rotors, calipers, pads and lines. Each has a role to play. But unless you completely re-engineer the entire system, the behavior won’t be that much different. You might think it is, but not really. On my 2011 heavily modded Mustang GT, I changed to the giant Brembo, multi piston calipers, slotted and grooved rotors, and fancy brake pads. I also changed the brake lines to the wheels with the Ford performance lines. The end result, nearly no difference, other than higher maintenance costs, constantly warping rotors, and a odder brake feel. On my 2008 Dodge Dakota pickup, I tried numerous brands of slotted and drilled rotors. They all sucked. Went back to stock replacements with ceramic brake pads. On my departed Audi A8, I tried 4 different setups of fancy rotor and pad. They all sucked, warped, and did absolutely ZERO to improve brake performance. But they were expensive. On my recently departed Audi R8, I played with several different brands of fancy pads, and went back to near stock, as they worked better, had better bite, made MUCH less noise, and lasted longer. Rotors are $4000 a set so I didn’t bother messing with those On my 420HP Mercedes E550 Cabriolet, I tried several fancy pad and rotor setups. They all sucked. I ended up using EBC stock replacement rotors, and they work fine. I used EBC because they were much less than OEM, but basically the same. I’ve done the same with dozens of cars over the years. The differences are mostly cosmetic, and make us car enthusiasts feel special. But brake performance has way more to do with the car’s suspension, tires, weight distribution, than the bits that are installed. There’s a ton of debate in the car aftermarket about the value of fancy brake components. There have been numerous papers written and published within the SME (Society of Mechanical Engineers) about whether cross drilling of passenger car rotors adds any performance benefit. Same with slots, but they are much less controversial. Most of the research into drilled rotors has been negative. So you have to ask, why do you think they are important? Is it because the aftermarket suppliers have done effective marketing? You want less fade, you want better pedal feel, you want more bite, ………maybe buy a different car. Most of the theory of drilled rotors doesn’t pan out in real world testing and day to day driving. Drilling causes weakening of the crystalline structure of the steel or iron the rotor is made out of. It causes heat concentration around the holes, which causes cracking and warping. Slots are more interesting, but its unclear whether they do anything actually. I’ve used them, and they warp like all the others, but cost more. Fade isn’t any better or worse. As far as pads go, there are zillions of them. They are cheap to make, cheap to paint, cheap to put into fancy boxes, and cheap to market. The differences are there if you want to try 50 different pads under identical circumstances. Its like testing skis, they all work fine, but are slightly different. Calipers, those are selected during design of the car, and the hub carrier/upright/spindles are engineered to adapt to the bolt pattern and accommodate the diameter of the rotor the caliper is designed to support. No magic. And its super hard to use a different caliper unless the manufacturer allowed for it with a multi purpose bolt pattern. Very seldom occurs. And calipers are of either floating (pistons on one side) or fixed (pistons on another side). Ask 2 people which are better, get 9 different answers. Both designs work fine, and while fixed calipers tend to be used in higher end cars, floating calipers can be and usually are, just as effective. Maybe not in Formula 1, but in real world, the entire planet works fine with floating calipers on passenger cars and they work fine. Ultimately, to assume that “performance” brakes are a thing is sketchy at best. There aren’t infinite factories that make rotors and pads, there are a limited number of companies/factories that make them. And they are sold under zillions of brand names, with paint, sometimes holes drilled, fancy boxes, etc. So while the whole mess of brake parts is intoxicating to us car enthusiasts, the differences are minuscule, especially for the costs. Are there massively engineered brake systems that actually make a difference in day to day driving? Possibly, but after trying dozens of brands, designs, and types over the years, I haven’t found anything worth the cost or hassle. They may be different, but that doesn’t mean better.
