If you have been an S-CARS.ORG follower for many years there is a good chance you remember our early S-Car Registry. In fact, the origins of this site date way back to 1995 with the creation of an online Audi owner registry site that was called Autobahnia. You’re *really* from the old school if you can remember that far back.
At any rate, our site (and the registry) have gone through a number of evolutions over the years and we’re pleased to announce that we’ve relaunched the Audi S and RS Owner’s Registry here at S-CARS.ORG. The registry is open to all owners of Audi’s S and RS series cars as well as the 20 valve 200, Sport Quattro and R8 series cars. At the present time, “S-Line” edition cars are not included although we may add them in the future.
UrS4 and UrS6 owners: We really need you! We’re trying to get as many of these vehicles registered as possible in order to get an indication of how many of them remain in service. Please register your car and share the link with as many other UrS owners as you can. We even encourage you to register vehicles that have been totaled or taken out of service for one reason or another. Think of this as a global UrS census of sorts! Please, help spread the word and build the registry!
Please pardon our brief diversion from business as usual in order to do a little shameless promotion. Well, we’d actually like to take a moment to express our appreciation for a couple of our affiliates. These are obviously services that we use and have been happy with and therefore feel confident enough to share them with you.
First, we give big kudos to our web hosting company, BlueHost. Having managed numerous sites since 1995, we’ve dealt with many (MANY) different hosting companies over the years. In terms of shared hosting, BlueHost is definitely one of the best we’ve dealt with. We’re not having constant email issues, hacking incident issues or some of the other pains we’ve commonly dealt with on other hosts. As an added bonus, they are truly affordable as well. If you sign up for a hosting account via the banner link below you’ll also be helping the S-CARS.ORG site as we are part of the BlueHost affiliate program.
The next quick thank you and endorsement is for something I use on a personal level for backing up data on my home computers. While I do burn important documents to DVD and BluRay, it is also nice to have an all-in-one secure cloud based backup that I can access from anywhere. For this, I’m a happy Backblaze user. Simply sign up for an account for only $50 per year and download the Backblaze client. It works in the background uploading the contents of your hard drives with NO space or bandwidth restrictions. Pretty amazing given the low cost of the service. And yes, just as with the link above, every new sign up helps us a little via the affiliate program.
