M3 Test in Autobild
New Autobild issue in Germany features a test where the M3 is compared to S5.
In short the author did like the M3 very much, his verdict was: "The S5 impresses, the M3 wows..." The numbers: 0100 km/h: 4.9s 0200 km/h: 15.7s 1000km/h: 33.4m  34m fuel consumption: 13.2 l/100km (=17.8 mpg (US)  21.4 mpg (UK)) which equals a reach of 480km Best regards, south

No slalom numbers in this Autobild test. S5 did get 2 points less than M3 in comfort rating. That must be due to the EDC they highly recommend for that matter... Best regards, south

How did you find me here. I only now realized where I know you nickname from...
To be honest, the S5 won due to the lower costs compared to M3. In total 472 points for the S5, 464 for the M3. Without costs the result is 355points for S5 and 367 for the M3. Like the author said: The M3 wins, but only if it doesn't depend on a couple grands... Best regards, south

BUT: S5 won the test against the M3 "only" because of its lower costs in the cost branch and not because its the better car overall...the M3 is much much more sportscar than the S5...and the test(er)drive stated "if he had the chance to decide between the two he would to 100% go to his bank (or to his hereditary uncle) to get the M3 instead of the S5

Errr I think the M3 won. Even if its a matter of cost these 2 cars are in the same cost bracket. If you can afford the S5 you can afford the M3 so the M3 won.

Not completely on topic but: I wonder what mods exist for the 4.2L Audi V8? Can it be made to hit 400hp with boltons?
