Either they have completely incompetent stunt people, or this was a
from-the-start PR idea; can't you see this being the brainchild of
some chipper marketing bimbo? "Like, what if we pretend it was REALLY
hard for the stunt guys to make it skid!"
Seriously, all they had to do was pull a couple of ABS sensor
connectors- and the sound effects are dubbed over anyway.
Either way, it was an obvious product placement in a pretty horrible,
vapid movie. Same with I, Robot. Audi needs to aim a little better,
unless they're trying to sell cars to pre-pubescent boys.
