Audi cast aluminium wheels are subjected to constant strain during daily use. Comprehensive testing ensures that they nevertheless
fulfill the demanding quality standards required of them. Furthermore, the use of complex casting processes results in
high component strength, and the multiple coats of high-quality paint do not just create a stunning look but also offer effective
protection against scratches.

Cast aluminium wheels
By undergoing a copper accelerated acetic acid salt spray test, for example. When our experts test
the quality of Audi Genuine Accessories wheels, they are just as innovative as our designers. Intense
heat, high humidity, strong sunlight – there is practically no limit to the number of possible tests. But
the most extreme endurance test is the copper accelerated acetic acid salt spray test, known as CASS.
In the test, wheels which have been previously damaged by simulated stone chips are sprayed with this
extremely corrosive solution for several days. Yet they must overcome all these challenges without
visible adverse effects. So that even after many miles, you can be as thrilled by the design of your Audi
Genuine Accessories wheels as you were on the first day.

Whether you’re going to the Kalahari, the Arctic or Florida –
our roof modules know the climate.
Roof rack modules
Weather tests simulate the different climatic zones in which Audi Genuine Accessories products are used. Hot and dry, cold and
damp, hot and humid. The Earth’s variety of weather conditions poses considerable challenges for developers. Because, no matter
if there is a storm, rain, or a burning sun; a product must be able to withstand the most varied climatic influences for a long time.
This is why Audi examines and improves items such as the luggage box in specially designed extreme weather tests. Xenon lights
and artificial rain are used to simulate the passing of an entire year in a shorter period of time. Additionally, tests on the carrier
units serve to improve the operational and ride comfort. The design of the struts on the carrier unit are based on the aerodynamic
profile of aircraft wings in order to reduce wind noise. Many tests, one goal: an ideal start to your next holiday – with Audi Genuine
Accessories. Even if you are not going to the Kalahari.

What 15.03.1954 has to do with the
development of our child seats.
This was the day that Georges de Mestral received his patent for velcro. He thus posed a challenge for the Audi developers of today: the velcro test. Children’s
shoes or jackets often have velcro fastenings which become stuck to the material and cause wear. The test therefore involves pulling velcro strips off
the child seat covers repeatedly in order to test their durability. Only when the fibres have passed this and many other tests are they good enough to be
processed into an Audi child seat. But the design, as well as the quality, must satisfy the high demands of Audi. That is why the individual threads are dyed
according to the exact specifications of our designers, so that they perfectly match the interior of an Audi. It is not worth mentioning that the cover materials
are Oeko-Tex® certified and breathable.

Our testers pay particular attention
to them in a special stress test. Braking,
engaging the clutch, accelerating.
These movements are made almost
automatically by most drivers,
but they put constant strain on the
floor mats. Because the floor mats
are severely damaged by the shoes
during these movements. To this end,
Audi Genuine Accessories make use
of a special testing procedure to test
the durability of the materials. This
involves clamping a floor mat in a
special device. A rubber heel is then
used to simulate the strain on the
floor covering around the accelerator,
brake and clutch pedals. The resulting
findings are used to continuously optimise
the product. So that even
when it has been in use for a long
time, the floor mat continues to meet
the high standards of Audi Genuine
Accessories – and of course your own.
You see, shoes play an important role
at Audi too. At least when this is a
good thing for your vehicle’s floor
