E92 M3 Beats RS4 Cabrio-CAR Mag

I believe this is a repost but worth mentioning again given the latest threads I have been reading. Remember this is from CAR magazine.

Remember that an RS4 Cabrio weighs about 300 lbs more than the RS4 4-door sedan, and has much less chassis stiffness. This tends to skew the driving results a bit, since the Cab has a 7.5% weight penalty over the Sedan, and we all know that the RS4 Sedan is already a porker.

However, it does go to show just how well-matched the M3 and the RS4 are. Both are great cars, for different reasons. As soon as the M3 hits the streets in the US, I'll be admiring it, as I do all fine automobiles.

Indeed, I make a point of acknowledging anyone driving a 'performance' car regardless of marque. I acknowledge and appreciate the petrolhead, not his budget or tastes.

All the bickering Ive seen on here recently is silly. Petrolheads unite says I! There are enough Prius driving do gooders out there against us without turning on each other.
