Built for Performance

German engineering is highly sought after. If you’ve ever had the privilege of driving on the speed limitless autobahn, then you’d know how important it is to have a smooth ride at top speeds. Driving a dependable and performance orientated car allows for a luxurious and comfortable journey no matter what your speed. There’s no shaking or jostling – just a quiet, smooth ride – you’ll hit top speeds before you know it.

Tested at Speed

All cars go through safety tests – it’s critical. German cars are tested with the Nürburgring track in mind. In fact, the Nürburgring and automotive development go hand-in-hand. The track puts our favourite German cars through the paces of speed, performance and handling. The track’s range of altitude, turns and steep ascents and descents make it a firm favourite to test car performance and handling.

Design

Always cutting-edge and setting the pace for style and design. BMW, VW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi are all instantly recognisable.

Innovation

Along with huge brand reputations comes the need to stay ahead of the pack. German vehicle manufacturers are constantly innovating to ensure they are not only up-to-date with the latest technology but also driving it forward.

Tradition

As cutting-edge and innovative as they are, German cars are also steeped in history. These long-known brands have risen up to become a part of our modern culture. The history of German cars started with the invention of the four-stroke internal combustion engine by Karl Benz and Nikolaus Otto in 1870. From the outset, these famous brands focused on reliability, functionality and quality. These are still the pillars upon which they are built.

At Volks Affair, we ensure our car mechanics have the technical expertise to repair and service all German brands.

Autonomous Audi: Six Levels of Autonomous Driving

Driverless cars are getting closer. In fact, a lot of autonomous tech is already on our roads. We service a number of Audi vehicles with varying degrees of autonomy every day. With the first Level 3 vehicle set to be released this year, it might not be too long before we see a fully self-driving car arrive at our workshop for a service!

So this week, we thought we’d look at the six different levels of autonomous driving, as set out by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Where possible, we’ve given an example of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) already on our roads. (more…)
