Best regards, south
The guys just makes me laugh, I particularly like both his reviews on the M3, especially the one from the ring.

I reckon you will like this one.

Sure but a verdict which is the best is all about personal preferences. I want to know how much better RS6 is based on figures, not a man's feelings.

I never ever buy a car purely on figures, it how the thing drives that should be the only real concern you should have.

I think someone opinion should be considered for what it is and it will tell more about a car than figures ever will. What I read from this review was that on a pure acceleration race there probably was very little in it, but when they ventured off the straights and things started to get twisty it was the RS6 which was the clear victor. It does have a better gearbox for the job in hand and with the horsepower each of these cars are kicking out it also has the better drivetrain for the job.

It is the better car, but then it should be because it does cost over 12% more.
