Did anyone see the Autoweek that talked about the new S4, with the 7 speed tiptronic and the 400 hp NA V8, the report said that Audi will be switching all of their S models over to NA engines. Can we call them German muscle cars? In the same show they also reported that all future BMW M cars with have "SMG" shifting, I was not paying close attention to it and have not read much about it but I believe it was similar to F1 style paddle shifting. I remember hims saying that BMW believed it was easier to shift, faster to shift, and put much less wear on the drivetrain, sounds good to me, now I just have to rob a bank!!!

I guess when you are racing the new Nissan Skyline with 8 speeds, or on the Autobahn when you are trying to hit 350 kph. I wonder what the gear rations look like????
