How quick do you think he can get his GT3 back? And that RS4 is a pretty good looking VW. Sorry some one had to say it.

I saw an RS6 yesterday, those are pretty rare here. RS4s I would say I see weekly. Nice enough car but the price was close to an M5 in Canada.

+1, I wouldn't mind owning one too, but then again if i had to choose, I'd take the M3. I haven't driven any of these cars though (yet), so I can't really say anything. It all depends on the drive in which I think the M3 is better, but the RS4 has the kick ass looks.

Top Gear mention something about that: "So, you are saying the best thing about your 4-seater cabriolet is that it's a 2-seater? God, man, you can talk some rubbish."

Nope. Just love E46 M3's and B6 S/RS4's. But I ordered an E90. Figures.

This one was definitely black on black. Two people in the car, one white kid with a wife beater and an (similar in age: 19, 20, 21, 22, 23) asian kid.

You live in SC and you're that excited over an RS4??

Give me the E92 M3 any day.
First RS4 I've seen in person (dealership does not count). And, yes, they are show stopping.

i'm dead serious. he got all his money from a personal injury settlement (it was warranted, trust me, you wouldn't want to go through what he had to, no matter how great his current situation may seem) and he got about $13 million dollars. he bought a 2 million dollar house, a range rover SC, and a 996 GT3, put $250,000 in the bank and gave the other $10 million to credit suisse and is now worth about $17,000,000. he got rid of the 996 GT3 and the RRSC was lemoned and then he got the RS4 because he is buying a F430 Scuderia next year.

the last day of his senior year in high school his chemistry teacher was doing an experiment involving a firecloud using methanol which is an experiment that is SPECIFICALLY prohibited by the district... he volunteered to help and the flame cloud burst on him and he got 3rd degree burns on over 45% of his body. luckily, it was right above his beltline, and right up to his chin, so his face and junk were chill. anyways, he was in the hospital for 38 days and almost died because he is a diabetic, got 2 staph infections, etc. lots of complications. THEN, after he was "healed," he has had 4 skin grafting surgeries since he was released from the hospital and has about 5 more the estimate throughout his life. anyways, his medical bills ended up being $1.2 million. his attorney actually bought him the range rover supercharged as a gift because, obviously, his attorney made his fair chunk off the case. ultimately, he got so much because the teacher who did this had a history similar and at her previous two science teaching jobs, had injuries in class and many different occasions. so yeah... it was a fucked up situation. as much as i'd love to be in his financial situation, after seeing him in the hospital wrapped up from his head to his legs, i would never want to go through what he did.

my friend's dad had an older (04) rs4 wagon and i thought the back seats would be bigger than the sedan, but they were actually really small. And that was when I was in 8th grade. wouldnt imagine the newer ones are much better space wise especially on the sedans you can really tell how small the cabin is by the size of the rear doors. Not that back seats really matter as many of us, myself included, have two doors.

I agree that the RS4 looks beautiful despite being older than the M3. Infact, the E90 M3 has just been unveiled. I've got high hopes for the next RS4 in 2010, rear seats might not be an issue either because the A4 has grown. Time will tell.

For a sedan, I would go with the RS4 over the M3.
For a coupe, M3 over the sure to come RS5.
