I also am now wondering if Audi is severly underquoting power. Which is fine, as long as production cars are delivered that way. So if someone can provide some insight from any personal test drives comparing the two.
Sure, different calibration on the steering ECU plus aggressive alignment at expense of tire then we are all good to go! Also, I think S8 comes with non RFT which is a plus.

It would be nice the production car come with this flash, if not just need to call ABT for it
