this is an interesting comment because not too long ago the "S" line for Audi WAS their version/competitor to M. but they diluted that brand and put it on cars that wouldn't compete with M cars. which meant that they had to make RS cars that actually would hang with the M's. maybe this is ultimately the fate of the M line...RM3, anyone?
