Money is always going to be an issue for most; only difference is how much of an issue . And for those that it's less of an issue, other than a few egomaniacs that have to mention their Ferraris, etc on every freaking thread no matter the subject (most likely not self-made <married into money, inheritance, etc), most won't say anything.

Wow I cant agree with that I mean S4 sounds nice,

but come on,, 335i is I-6 and S4 is V8. Also I think

BMW sounds so much better than audi,

A4 < 328i, s5 < 335i, a6 < 535i, s6 < M5, RS5 < M6, TTS < Z4 35i !

saw the RS5 in the Audi Forum at Munich Airport..
it had 20" wheels....are they a standard feature?

I really like the RS5....the only problem is that in general,I'd prefer BMW over Audi

Wow... After all the M3 indeed faired better versus the RS5!! One way or another it is an amasing car in its own right, but being faster, more fun to drive, AND more economical than the new RS5 which is launched 2.5 years later proves that BMW have really delivered an amasing package!!!

I really think that the E92 M3 DCT will be in the history book as one of the greatest all round cars of all times, embodying one of the last naturally aspirated engines for quite some time to come (if ever again). The S65 is a marvel, as is the entire M3 package!

On a side qn, does anyone know what kind of options the test M3 had? I am curious to see how heavily / lightly optioned is a 1,640kg E92 M3 DCT.

There's no option list, but it had EUR 26k in options (incl. 3k for the Frozen Gray special paint).

Thanks - then its is pretty safe to assume it contains tech & premium package (i.e. for sure iDrive and EDC), which are options that add quite a bit of weight.

1,640kg for a pretty loaded E92 with DCT (which adds 25kg over the 6MT if I recall correctly) is not a bad curb weight at all!!!

I agree, at 26K Euros (BMW Germany prices) it certainly had at a minimum:

Frozen Gray
Premium
Tech
Comp
DCT

So yeah.....fully loaded. Great results for sure.

Audi fails at catch up once again

Sure, I find the RS5 to be one of the more attractive Audi's on their lineup... but thats not all there is to a car.

I hate the "Numb" driving feeling that almost all Audis have.

I cant wait to watch a C/D review with these two featured cars...

Wow for $40K you could really do a lot to the M3 if you were so inclined.

How could that be? Isn't the V8 R8 about $120k?

My next car must have 4wd for skiing, etc. so I may just pick up a used RS4 and save myself some coin.

I can't believe Audi failed... Don't they test in house before finishing products?! There was no room for the RS5 to perform worse than the M3 given its time to market and premium in price. I almost feel bad!

Given the time Audi had and the bar set by BMW I would have expected them to be closer. In many specific contests the Audi really got tromped. It is still a gorgeous car and seems to be wonderful driving at 8 10ths but just can touch the M at 9 or 10 10ths.

All US mags test 0-60 mph 0-100 km/hr is 0-62 mph. US mags also allow 1 foot roll out. There is a few tenths for each!

I take my E90 skiing here in Colorado. Don't give up on the M just to feed your ski need.
