Y'know, we've been through all this before, but the facts are that the RS5 is a little quicker on average over a road course, supported by an anecdotal Fifth Gear video shown within these pages, plus FastestLaps.com shows it a bit quicker on twelve out of fifteen tracks, last I looked.

In a straight line, best ET for the RS5 is from Road & Track, where it ran a 12.2 113.6, while best ET for the M is a 12.4 @ 114.

M3 takes steering feel honors by a smidgeon from my point of view.

In short, these two are both remarkable cars, and one couldn't go wrong with either.

I agree the audi is a tad quicker in the 1/4 mile. Only the e9x m3 came out in 2007. For a car that was released less then a year ago I think they could have brought a little more to the table.

Nevertheless it's a great looking car congratz!
