You're probably right, the audi may be just as fast or faster in some tests.
I was talking about driver involvement and fun. Not really interested in the specs comparison as the two cars are pretty evenly matched. What sells me is how the car involves the driver when at the limit. Rwd/weight dist/chassis tuning. I'm sure the audi is fun to drive fast just not in the same way as the M3 is with opposite lock.
