Winding Road with a proper comparo! It's a good read also. Pretty fair write up between the two. They couldn't even pick one over the other. There are also some nice pictures of two very beautiful cars.
On the V8 vs TT V6 arguement, I must say that a TT V6 would be fine if GM can for sure solve the NVH issues with the DI V6 before they turbo a version of that engine. I really hope part of the CTS MCE is actually a rebalancing of the DI to get rid of it's horrible sounding upper rev problem that many reviewers point out. It seems to be a very smooth and nice engine until pushed into the upper end. I am sure that can be fixed. Also, I am only in favor of the TT V6 if it not only plenty smooth, but also actually achieve better fuel consumption numbers for CAFE than a similar powered OHV V8. I'm not convinced it could do that if you downsized the LS design to like 5L and added DI to get around 400-420hp. I am really ok with either direction though so long as the resulting vehicle matches or exceeds the best competitors on most any criteria you pick.
