Road and Track has RS4 at 4.3 seconds and M6 at 4.1. Perhaps you are correct, the M3 should win but I'm saying in the real world you might be surprised how often an AWD smokes the RWD car if you've never had an AWD.
In any case, isn't competition great?!? As long as manufacturers are engaged in the current 1 upmanship, we all win.
PS I'd never buy the Audi, just saying for sake of comparison...
