Do you own a 911 ?
It's the RS4 the M3 need to beat, not the Porsche.
In all honesty who is really that concerned whether it's the RS4, C63 or M3 which is the quicker.
I believe you buy the car not so much on the lap times it does but the way it feels while driving it, if I was so concerned as to how quick the M3 was I probably would be keeping the S5 as where I live most of the year it's raining and there would be no doubt that the Audi would be the quicker in these conditions, but it's the pleasure that the M3 gives over the S5 that is important to me and the reason why I am so looking forward to owning it.
Always remember the real reason why you are driving what it is you are driving.
