Just because it lost out to the M3 it doesn't mean it would be bad at the track.
I brought my STOCK S4 to the track once and had no problem passing all the E90 M3's on the track that day.
Im sure the RS5 can outdo the S4 which is quite a capable car on the track as is.
In my view if you live in an area with snow during the winters and want a car that has AWD but is also a great car to bring to the track on weekends then you can't go wrong. An AWD is not as fun as a powerful RWD though so you might get bored when you get better.
