depends on the track
I'm sorry, but 1 test at 1 track with 1 driver on a "watered-down" track doesn't prove a single thing.
Having a water tanker water down a track? Seems to be the track would have been midly damp at best.
And This guy has to learn how to drive an AWD using throttle. If you're experiencing understeer in an AWD car in a corner, you're either A) turning to sharply B)entering the corner too fast C)not using the gas peddle to control the car D) all of the above.
You really have to drive an AWD differently than a RWD in dry and esp in wet. This driver doesn't seem to realize that.
The first paragraph of this disgrace of a read turned it into a complete joke. Way to turn a self-proclaimed prophecy into an auto-article.
In Top-Gear's testing (with the infamous "Stig" driving) the new S4 not ravaged the M3 on a dry track, but it got extremely close the a laptime of the Murcielago. Now I sure hope the Stig wasn't as biased as this joker.
for my 50+ g's, as much as i like the aggressive look of the m3, i have a feeling i'd end up with the audi. it just seems to offer a better overall package. although, i'd definitely throw on some different rims, the 18" avus's just look kinda dated now
"and, crucially, you cant disarm the stability system - as you can in the m3 - to allow you to throw the car through high-speed corners, or quell the understeer via the throttle."
not flaming, just wondering if u noticed that
Boy, that solves it! M3 > S4!
One track with one driver has convinced me.
No i didn't see that part, but unless audi's awd system is absolutely incredible, i still can't see that actually being true. My old syncro vw (has the best awd system i've ever experienced) had only 200crank hp, and an active traction control system, and i could still control is at my will.
bahahaha try it on with an RS4 bitch
