Although the Science Channel program “How It’s Made” isn’t one of the most exciting television programs, it does offer a glimpse as to what it takes to manufacture complex items. I happened to watch an episode on how Audi builds its 6-cylinder TDI diesel engine the other day and found it interesting (video clip below). Although I’m currently not a big fan of the recently imported behemoth Audi Q7 TDI seeing their price-point, performance and fuel economy still too low, I do believe their smaller A3 TDI diesels (above) will have some appeal … especially if they offer a manual transmission choice and quattro in the U.S. — yet to be seen.
