For 17 years the M3 and S4 were direct competitors. Then Audi makes the RS4 and all of sudden the RS4 is now the competition and the S4 isnt? It appears to me that BMW's answer to Audis RS line is the CSL M3 and expected CSL M6.

In my view the direct competitor to the M3 from Audi is the S5 and S4. It always has been. How is this changed?

Check out BMW's brochure for its sales force. It clearly identifies the RS4 as the Audi competitor. S4 is not mentioned.
