    An old film but a good one.
    Not sure I like the way they treat the S8 though

    Incredibly enough, that was the first time I'd seen it right through.

    So, anyone got any ideas what was in the case?

    It was the extended Audi warranty on the S8!

    Only caught the last few minutes of it last night - missed the chase but it's well and truly imprinted in my memory after seeing the movie so often! I bought the DVD just for the chase! Great film all round though...

    Regards,

    I watched it even though I have it on DVD! Still two of the best car chase sequences ever, particularly the final one with the Peugeot 406 vs BMW M5. So many film chases use unknown American cars, but being set it Europe with familiar vehicles made it more exciting I think.

    see some of the posts on youtube?
    "an RS8 would be better" what?!
    Someone else replies that "maybe the R8 will get an upgrade"
    it would need a pretty big upgrade, like a chassis extension to hold the 2 extra seats, what a couple of penii
