You can't find an RS4 for a nickle less than $72K. Plus the RS4 is a VERY VERY limited produced car, unlike the M3. Yes the M3 is not as massed produced as a 335i, but far more will eb produced than the RS4.
I personally think the M3 will MSRP base at around $55K and probably come out to around $60-66K well equppied.
