Go to Germany and more than likely the most popular police cars you’ll spot are Volkswagen Passat wagons and the like. Nothing special, right? But if you spend a bit more time in the bier and wurst-loving country, it’s possible you could see some pretty cool cop cars.
Most American police departments purchase Ford Interceptor SUVs, modified Dodge Chargers and Chevrolet Caprices. They’re cool and all but not nearly as cool as, say, a Corvette Stingray with rollers bolted to its roof. (Have you seen any cop with a Stingray pull anybody over?)
Tickets are no fun in any country, but Tickets are no fun in any country, but c’mon America, we’re better than this!
Buying a car can be a stressful experience. Whether you are worried about quality, price, or longevity there are many factors to consider. We here at North State Auto hope to shed some light on the car buying process and show you the benefits of purchasing a used vehicle.
Benefits of Buying a Pre-Owned Vehicle Instead of a New Vehicle
Cost: This is the most obvious benefit when a prospective shopper considers a high quality pre-owned car. With a reduced cost you may be able to splurge a bit and buy up to a higher quality model that you otherwise might not want to spend top dollar on.
Insurance: Used Vehicles are generally cheaper to insure. This is the rule, but there are some exceptions. Cars naturally go through normal wear with daily driving and this will reduce the cost of insurance.
Choice: When you buy a new car from a dealership you are often limited. Us on the other hand have a wide selection of quality makes and models in the exact color you are specifically looking for.
One common concern when buying a used car is quality. Many people think that when you buy a used car you are buying some else’s headaches. However, cars are made better these days, the stigma of used car quality is being done away with by excellent craftsmanship and ingenuity of the auto industry. Chances are that if you buy a used car that was made in the last five years or so, you are still getting a high quality vehicle.
In addition, we give you a 3 month / 3,000 mile warranty alongside our own standards we live up to that is tied directly with our reputation.

We’ve seen spy photos of the Audi Q4 in the past but these new ones are the closest and clearest yet. In them, we can clearly see that this new Q4 looks very much like a mini version of the Audi Q8, which isn’t all that surprising.
Coupe-like crossovers are becoming more and more popular. Take BMW, for instance. There’s now a BMW X2, X4, X6 and possibly a future X8. Mercedes-Benz has the GLA-Class, GLC-Coupe and GLE-Coupe. So it was only a matter of time for Audi to make a Q4.
Although Audi is new to the scene, the Audi Q8 was the first coupe-like SUV the brand has but is finding itself to be a competitor in it’s space. The new Q4 looks very much like Q8 and that’s a good thing.
In these new spy photos, it gets a similar face to the Audi Q3 (grille, headlights and front air intakes..so are the taillights.) Now comparing it to the big Q8, it has the same sort of flared wheel arches at the back, similar roof line and of course, profile.
Yes, the Audi Q4 is based off of the Q3 but will feature the couple-SUV styling like the Q8.
Overall thoughts is that it’s a sporty, stylish and athletic crossover. We can’t wait to see the real thing!
