Yup. I want to see a third party testing these cars. All with the same tires on them in equivalent conditions. And no, I don't want to see this roller BS. Actual real-world ice, snow, wet conditions

The Acura video, IMO, is the worst because they leave everything ON for the Acura and let it torque-vector all the power to the side with traction. They pulled the fuse for the Audi and wouldn't let it send power to the wheels with traction.
