Not only did the M/// come out on top again, but I think these are the best stock performance numbers I have seen so far even though car and Driver is very biased towards the M3.
Then again I assume most of us on this board are

10 out of 10 for fuel economy.

This pretty much sums up the C&D roundel humping.

Their crediblity is lacking.

I really suck at searching for things on the internet...does someone know where I can find reviews and comparo's of the RS5 vs the M3?....I cant seem to find a comparo where the RS5 beat the M3....
