A well written review but also in direct contradition to the vast majority of reviewers who not only differ in opinion but differ diametrically.

First time I've ever seen the Audi called the "wild animal" in any comparison.

I never enjoy reading their reviews. Every review I have read, the author ends up sounding like a complete ass.

You rarely read a review that is not a bash fest.


Plus who the hell thinks the RS4 is a "wild animal". The RS4 is by far the more civilized car, the AWD will make horrible drivers good.

Turn traction control off on the M3, then you have a "wild animal"


Not question this is last time I read a review from this pompous ass website.

It's true that the RS4 is a different animal to the normal Audi but it's not the wild one here in this test. Even when both cars have their ESP/DSC systems disabled it's the Audi which always remains super composed and in total control, the BMW is the one that needs respect and can bite back at every occasion.

I agree 100%, its almost like they didn't even drive the cars.

There is no way for someone to come to the conclusion they did.

Sounds like he had the Audi for "several hours" (probably borrowed it from a friend) but only allowed a short test drive of the M3, in which he... sat in the seats, listened to the idle and (maybe) drove around the corner. The fact he had amateur pics of the Audi and only press photos of the M3 say a lot.

Anyone can get a web domain do and "car reviews." We have better reviews from real enthusiasts and owners here on M3 Post!
