2006 Audi A3 2.0t, 2001 Audi A4 1.8t and More - Readers’ Rides

Every entry is included in the mag, provided the photos are big enough.

Ride of the Month
This month, we’ve got a pair of Kicker HP541 premium over-the-ear headphones for our ROTM. With a padded headband and ears, pivoting mechanism and multi-size plugs, they retail for around $129.95 but we’re giving them away to Henry for the cool photo of his bagged A3. Hopefully, we’ll see engine mods on that bad-boy soon.

We’d like to thank everybody who entered Readers’ Rides this month and encourage you to keep entering your cars to Every entry is included in the mag, provided the photos are big enough. We need all your details as seen here, so email us ASAP.
