    I watched it. Didn't really think much of the piece to be honest.

    Same here, the S4 won though.

    Looked a bit boring in battleship gray and stuck on the standard 18" wheels, especially against the nice blue VXR.

    I wonder if the S4 had the sports diff?

    That was what bugged me. I had no idea what technology I was watching.

    The S4 looked very compossed, much more than my car, so i guess it had the sports diff. Could have been Tiff's driving making all the difference though

    That insignia is the ugliest thing i have ever set my eyes on, even compared to a tdi A4 B8 there is no competition for me.

    Im sure that comment will fire up a good telling off but actually im really hoping you guys agree?
