    It's telling that the engine is off and all the previous press vids had music over them

    I think it's a play on the fact that everyone who has reviewed it has said it doesn't sound as good as the last one

    Maybe, but I thought the reviews on the sound had been quite good, blips and pops etc.

    I've not seen one that says it's good. The best has been along the lines of "not as bad as I feared but worse than the old one".

    It's a sore point for the as if you look at the press kit a lot of the marketing focus is on improvements from the B8

    If they can keep the RS6 engine why not the RS4? Imagine strapping a turbo to the old engine from the factory!

    If I won the lottery a supercharged B8 would be daily

    Mercedes have no problem putting a v8 turbo in their equivalent rs5 (c63), so why can’t audi!

    I priced one up on the work scheme. 9% off list so I might not be too far off once they do the inevitable dynamic pack

    The new RS4 is twice the car of the B8. Power, torque, build... the lot.

    There’s a reason Audi chose the V6 over the V8.
