The article just re-confirms once more what the E92 M3 is good at (all-around balanced performance), despite present day competitors. For those who intend to take a car to the track, and can appreciate the harmony between power, suspension, transmission, etc - the M3 is the top choice (unless you want the $90k Boxster - ack, although I do think it's nice car too). If you want more straight line power and torque and that's your bag, then the Merc. / RS5 might be more your taste.
