Don't watch, its pointless to compare BMW's 7-8 year old technology against Audi's latest and greatest. Wait until the E92 comes out to rape it.

For having almost 25% more power than the M3 and all wheel drive the Audi sure as hell didn't look 25% ahead on that track race. The fact that a 7 year old BMW design that costs thousands less can nip at the heals of Audi's latest and greatest is just hilarious. Also, both drivers in the video mentioned a minumum of 5 times each that the BMW was more fun.

i guess they wanted to try and see what M Power can do? i dont know haha
i am wondering why so many people would try something that has obvious outcome?
i am not trying to be cheap on gas or anything but...that's total waste of time,gas,money, and anything. (except fun factor i guess? )

bmw might be a few years behind in technology, but the new V8 M3 will kick ass, audi performance centres are already dealing with the problem that the M3 might be quicker than the New B7 rs4, the new flash upgrade for the rs4 will be available early next year bring the standard 440 bhp to a stagering 515bhp from just the tune, so unless the new M3 has something special up its sleeve i dont think it will keep up once again

True and if you take a look at the track in the 1/4 mile comparo's, it is very damp and slick, "greasy" they even say. Cleary the RWD M3 will have trouble getting off the line. I'd say it's closer than what this comparo vid shows.

New M3 will be game over.

+95 HP on an strung out NA motor from just software? You can rarely get that with a FI motor and software. Who's selling you this BS?

Exactly. Even if attainable-through other means, that much hp would certainly be cost prohibitive for the average owner.

I love the E46 M3 and it certainly faired very well against Audi's flagship. But, remember that the Audi IS pushing/losing that power through all four wheels. One of Audi's biggest issues is that they can not seem to get their sport sedans down to a respectable weight.

It takes a LOT of a disparity in HP to gain a little distance in a drag race. I'd say that the RS4 did a really good job spanking the M. You can place some of the blame on a poor launch, but the RS4 clearly walks away from the the M as the speed increases, illustrating the RS4's big HP advantage.

Don't get me wrong, I am a BMW fan, but kudos to Audi. Now if they can reduce the weight and the price a little, BMW M Division might be losing some sales.

Totally Agree, the RS4 is def faster than the E46 M3 and it is a beautiful car, just a bit too heavy and pricey IMHO.
