Check Out The Luxurious Audi Q7 in Second Life- Khajan Reporting...






The Audi Q7 a huge seven seater SUV in the real world is a great luxurious and spacious car which has now been brought into Second Life by many vehicles manufactures. I had the chance to explore one of them by Hotaru Motors they have re-branded the rl model as SUV-Q7-AS7 implying the Q7 runs on the ACS scripts of version 7.0.

Space
No Doubt compared to a Range Rover the SUV-Q7-AS7 appears very small looking at it from outside. However I must say it is more spacious but lacks the actual seven seaters as this car is packed with 3 passenger sears with 1 animated driver. Even in the front there is a lot of space making it very comfy to travel in. In terms of boot it is very decent but not intractable with if you’re a role-players who loves shopping.


Comfort
    
The SUV-Q7-AS7 I would say is package of luxurious driving experience which is incredible smooth when driving it. The car is great for long journeys as having done a trip on the main grip was very enjoyable. However, I must put it down that crossing sims was not as pleasant. The driving position that came as stock was perfect for a tall avatar like me but you are able to adjust it in the menu for your personal preference.

Dashboard Layout

SUV-Q7-AS7 dashboard would say made with considering the factor of stylish in mind as it is beautifully constructed. As the textures on the car are I would say so rich in detail in mouse look I couldn’t tell if I was in a virtual car or a real one that’s how good it was. I do love the media screens as you probably know by now how I love listing to music while I drive.

Easy to drive
   
Well in towns and cities in SL it is generally a breeze to drive. The car offers effortless accelerations making it easy to overtake the slower-moving traffic. However, I must say in narrow lanes and busy towns I do get paranoid and annoyed about bumping into stuff so I do tend to cam out using the rear cam to drive.

Affordability
The car I would say costing at $950 is a great bargain for quality like this so if you have the lindens,it is worth the money but I would suggest you try it out in the demo area of the sim so you don’t just take my word for it.

Surplus Motors S65 AMG- Khajan Reporting...




Hmmm Surplus Motors just released the S65 AMG based on the real-life 2015 Mercedes Benz S65 AMG.


Exterior
At first glance, we can see that the car is more aggressive and yet more beautiful having a redesigned look. The car has been fitted with a six-twin-louver grille which looks great. The lights are aesthetically pleasing, yet the use of it when you turn it on is quite low. Lucky the brightness can be adjusted thanks to the advanced lighting system on board in the car which can be accessed by the HUD. Moreover, I’m glad to see that there are working indicators which adds to the realism; hopefully there will  be an update to the car to add hazard signs. The front grille seems wider, making larger intakes on each side with the addition of chrome--creating an epic look.



On the rear of the car, Surplus Motors has gone for new set of tail lights for the S65 AMG as well as a quad- exit exhaust system which is very sharp. In terms of the colour options on the overall body, you have 6 stock colours available to choose from or to customize it to your favourite colour.


Interior
Surplus Motors has done in the interior of the car which comes stocked with the highest-quality materials to make it look as real as possible. I would define this as pure luxury with Nappa leather and diamond stitching which graces the seats, headliner, dashboard, door panels and grab bars. The interior comes in 4 standard colours. Maybe it’s me, but I’m glad to see a working dashboard which you can access through your media content by enabling it in your settings. Unlike past cars like the Surplus Motors Spyder that was not possible.  


Driving
The 65 AMG is a very smooth to ride as well as realistic. The steering is perfect although I have noticed that when you are driving that the wheel seems to either oversteer or understeer despite being in 1st gear and not in cruise mode or turbo. Hopefully there will be a fix for that yet I have found out that by resetting the car via the menu is a temporary fix.



Pricing
The 65 AMG cost about L$1900 which I guess is worth every penny when you are getting a car like this.
Additional Features of the car
Features on your S65 include:

-6 body colours plus the possibility to design your own
-4 interior trim colours
-License plate can be changed
-Projector lights (advanced light settings only)

They can be selected in advanced>shift style

Most Realistic BMW Finally in Second Life - Khajan Reporting...


The NAI Munich based on the RL BMW  3 series  takes a shot to cutback the recipe of the BMW four-door coupe concept and  combines it dashing coupe-like looks with four doors and a big boot to creating a  family car with stylish detail. The Munich  is offering a bigger boot and easier passenger transport. The NAI Munich may demand a L$1,099 premium but is worth every penny.
Styling
From some angles, the swooping rear glass doesn’t look all that radical, and onlookers could be forgiven for not noticing the difference between the NAI Munich and a standard NAI Saloon 7 2014.


That said, NAI Munich is still a well dressed machine in the metal.
Inside, the layout will be familiar to anyone who has driven a Beamer from NAI. You get the same upmarket feel and smart design, and highlights include the slender buttons.  NAI have also included an excellent central infotainment screen where you can access your favorite sides such as YouTube to watch videos while you are on the move or tune into your favorite radio station.
The NAI Munich has a very spacious feel with the extra headroom. Despite that having the  low-slung seating position makes sure the car feels sporty enough.

Driving


In short, it handles very well with realistic steering, which is to say very well indeed – if lacking the final word in excitement as when your press done on the accelerator it takes about a second to just GO lowering the reaction time compared to other NAI cars and it’s competitors.
The Munich has huge amounts of grip and launch control and can really go when it hits top speed with four wheel drive.
The car’s engine is very detailed compared to its competitors a full on unlike other SL motor vehicles which have nothing in the engine bay or a poor detail textures.
Reliability
You can buy the NAI Munich safe in the knowledge that it should match the reliability of NAI Brand. The can keeps on going and if you have any issue you could always reset or contact Ryo (NAI Creator)

Customization
The Munich can be customized with several colors including Lime, green, red, dark red, orange, yellow, grey, black, white  and many more. The lights can also be changed in terms of colors from super blue to evil green. The Munich also offers a tint feature allowing the glass on the car to be tinted. Other customizations that can be made to the car are interior colors, trims, gauges, wheels, and rims. In terms of body parts you are able to customize the front plate and have an option for extra shine if you wish.

Roleplay Mode
The Munich follows up on using the new muse scripts created by NAI which gives it a realistic feel as well as indicators so when turning you feel like you are actually in a real car. Even if you break down you can turn the hazard lights on giving you a realistic role play experience. The car also is fitted with an engine that you are able to fix in role play mode as when you are driving the car’s engine durability goes down. Therefore, allowing you to making repairs. The engine comes with a decently reliable rating from NAI standard which is stock but as you drive it you must make sure it is well looked after. NAI recommendation is making sure the durability is at least 20% and could be checked by going to the menu.
New Age Industries Munich 2015 is available from purchase on the Second Life Market Place:
