Agree. If a post is totally illiterate I tend to discount it, but minor mispellings or typos I rarely comment on.

Look, if you are going to take the time to write up a long review of your experiences with a car the least you can do it use decent (not perfect spelling, grammar and diction and communicate in complete sentences. The "review" was so incoherent and even unreadable in many places. It really had no particularly good insights and was fairly critical of the car as well. It simply "screamed" laziness and incompetence to me. If you combine all of the bad together in the review my opinion is simply to heavily discount it. Sure I still read it but who do you trust more this clown or say user Filthy Monkey?? I'll let you decide.

By the way good catch Leg on my little spelling error. I think that small blemish is not a very big deal in light of my typical standards of both content and communication ability. Ironic indeed though - a "gotcha" for sure.
Didn't know that my video translation has been that bad.

Best regards, south

Did you misunderstand? I was saying that even though you are not a native English speaker your English and posts are still excellent in both language and content.

This review that claims a lack of bias almost certainly contains it. Not an objective review by any means.

I was only joking. FFC was not my intention, but thanks for that anyway.

i drove both last week....

they are so close.....

But I prefer the RS4 (quattro) but the M3 feels faster.
especially above 5000 rpm.

We are having a lot of rain here and the winter is also coming.
......

after 2 days of thinking.
I'm going to trade my 335i for a RS4.

Just joking bud, all this Audi vs BMW stuff is so boring. I own an Audi and MB at the moment and will be adding the M3 when it arrives rather than replacing one of them and I have to say I really like/will like all of them equally for different reasons. I love the last of production Mk1 TT 3.2 V6 (with lots of suspension, drivetrain and engine mods) that I have because it is one of the few cars that stuck to its prototype origins, I love the MB because I can stick my family in it and trek across Europe and not care when the kids spill juice on the seats (as they did 3 weeks ago grrr) and Ill love the M3 because I'll grin like an idiot everytime I drive it and because Ill rarely meet anything that can even sniff its arse on the road.

Why care which is best? At least people who own RS4s, M3s et al love performance cars, its the bloody Prius drivers that bother me!

Good point.. They are slightly different yet equally awesome cars. Saying one is unequivocally better than the other is just plain stupid when so many reviews by now have said they are just as good as each other, with slightly different 'talents'.

The difficulty at some of his criticisms probably stem from the fact that you really dont adjust to a car until you drive it for a couple days. So clutch engagement, brake bite, etc. can be compared against what you usually drive, but you shouldn't initially judge which is better because you can adjust to both.

Oh well, anyway, I'm sure with all the fanboys out there on both sides, and people's egos, there will be hordes that will claim that one is clearly superior to the other... Just makes me laugh and shake my head

Why thank you! I'm sure that English members are very grateful for your charity.
