Picked up a copy of Top Gear magazine this week in Amsterdam and there's a review of the B8 in there.
Pretty interesting. They say it 'Lacks Genuine Charm' and he wishes that Jaguar had a car to compete...<ul><li><a href="http://www.topgear.com/drives/A2/A4/roadtests/09/01.html">Top Gear B8 review</a></li></ul>

Sounds like more trash talk about Audi from sleazy Audi hating and BMW and Mercedes loving UK Automotive journalists (the negative things about the car and not the positive, that is).

like we Americans can't wait to praise the Corvette when it has anything close to quality build......both interiors are still junk btw and compared to any Audi, they are POS's. When I sat in both cars, I laughed at the cheap crap that surrounded me from these $50K+ sports cars.
Every report I've ever read or watched on Audi from the Brit press goes into the lack of steering feel (hello..quattro), lack of character, too sedate, boring styling, blah, blah.... Well, with one exception, the R8....but of course, that's the first purpose built supercar from Audi. Come on, these guys drive ragged MG convertables in the rain in winter time, so safe, secure handling awd 4 door sedans naturally aren't their "cup of tea" ;)

Tata, the Indian conglomerate, may own Jaguar soon.
