According to road and track the a3 does .71g on the skidpad; whereas car and driver pegs it at .82g. Anyone know the real number or why these numbers could be so different?

different test surfaces on different days can yield varying skidpad results, even with the exact same car/tire combo.

It could also very well be the tires/suspension options on the test cars the 2 magazines used. did the two magazines list the tire model on the car? e.g. one with summer performance tires/Sport Package, and the other with M+S tires/non-Sport
