I'm an M3 fanboy as much as most of you, but the RS5 is a very nice package and some might say better looking. Add in bad weather or snow and it could have a big advantage in safety and performance.
I can't see dissing the opposition for a good effort that no doubt would be very satisfying to own for most. It's not black or white, but shades of different colors, and what is important in a car ought to be more than numbers on a page, just like your wine selections should not be based purely on review scores. People should use both lobes of the brain.
That being said, given the comparative pricing, the choice for the M3 is a no-brainer, unless issues such as dealer access or such come into play.
