After a long and hot afternoon under the Las Vegas sun at WusteFest 2012, we took the chance to escape to old downtown for some quick shots of Rotiform’s latest project. This early-model Allroad falls directly in line with the Audis Rotiform has been known for building, and once again they’ve shown the beauty of Audi’s Avant line by building a surprisingly stylish yet entirely functional family hauler.
STANCE|WORKS continues to grow as an international power in the realm of automotive media, and our reach extends across the globe. Sometimes, we’re given the opportunity inspire some of the more surprising nooks and crannies of the car scene, however, even more special to us is the opportunity to support those who do the same for us.
On Sunday afternoon, a buddy and I hopped in to the E9 and blasted down the interstate, headed for down town Los Angeles. Waiting off of the 7th street bridge was Ryan Worthington and his 2007 Audi A4, and underneath it, one of the best sets of wheels we’ve seen in some time.

There’s a harsh reality to face once you get involved in this industry. Truth be told, the automotive aftermarket is not the prettiest place. That age old saying of “never meet your heroes” rings truer than imaginable. Companies are often intertwined and incestuous, run by people after nothing more than a dollar. Fortunately, that’s not always the case.
There’s one thing many people assume: for a car to grab attention, and better yet, hold it, it must be built to the nines. There’s no arguing that building a car in such a fashion is a surefire way to leave an impression; however, sometimes it is simplicity that appears most complex.
There’s something to be said about a car that defines the word “understated.” On paper, John Holdridge’s B8 S4 is one that may leave something to be desired.
