    S4 V8 video review (in french)

    Just out of Turbo this week-end (french equivalent to Top Gear), a brief video review of the S4.

    Basically the journalist says "incredible ESP, impressive handling, lot of pleasure to drive, even with the ESP on".

    Go for the Real Player version, I found a crisper image & better sound.

    Thanks! The more I see this car the more it impresses me.

    However I'm afraid many owners will smoke the clutch. Just like what happened when they released the latest M5.

    Great video, thanks for the link! (Eventhough I didn't get any of the comments...)

    Erik, you've driven it. Is the clutch unusual in any way or why do you think a lot will "smoke" the clutch? Because of the torque?

    There is nothing wrong with the new S4!
    But people who buy it may not be used with the power/torque
    and a manual gearbox.
    The S4 will also come with an 6-speed automatic.

    Ah, so they're just lousy drivers as I thought!
    The should have a drivers test before you're allowed to sign the contract for cars with over 250 hp. Not just because of the car-abuse, but also for the sake of safety for us others.

    I'm editing the Tribute to the S4 on my computer right now...

    There's at least four S4's in it.

    You may call them Mr. Blue, Mr. Silver, Mr. Red and Mr. Black... :s4addict:
