Yes, these lukewarm RS5 reviews has footie running around like a fireman. No offense footie, I was hoping for more as you were.

I just don't understand why Audi didn't put all their engineering acumen towards a true M3 destroyer given 3 freaking years of development, I would have welcomed it come time to buy a market improved M3.

The real take away from these reviews isn't that the M3 is still the one to beat but rather Audi's best effort can't even handily top (split 2nd/3rd) Cadillac's entry as a sporting power cruiser, and the RS5 costs 5 digits more $$.

It's too bad about the RS5's weight given the talk about the use of more aluminum and a lighter chassis.
