    i'm not impressed... the sti is quicker with a 4-banger. lol

    granted, totally different cars, and i'm sure the s8 weighs 5000 lbs...

    Not a W-10. V-10. From the Gallardo. Pretty sure its the same motor.

    welcome to M Mode.

    not to thread jack, but saw one the other day. fucking tight. the new m5s.

    anyway, i agree with the guy who has a lot of babies, the RS4s are nicer.

    small for a V10?


    the one in the M5 is a 5.0....(I know, its faster as of testing right now, but I'd like to see a head to head test by C&D or someone)




    Also, the M5 = RWD
    S8 = AWD


    and the RS4 isn't a full size luxury car...you think some doctors going to spend $90k on a "sport-compact wagon"?

    Hell no, its all about the RS6, biturbo V8 :)

    That S8 is nice too. :) And ya, my Evo pulls the 0-60 quicker also with even less displacement than the STi [​IMG]

    I would like to see the Caddy CTSV up against it ... Yeah, smaller motor but that car rocks out in every way, has a 6 speed and I'm willing to bet is more comfortable with a cheaper price tag, and from what I've seen recently, better build quality.
