To bad you can't test drive an RS5. It will definitely impress you. There are a lot of haters on here, but don't listen to them. Try to find RS5 to drive, whether it be new or second hand. 99% of the car is a step above an E92 M3. The inside of the RS5 is such nice place to spend time.

Really depends on what you want to do with the car. The new Cayman S is a hell of a car as well. Can you live with a small two seat car everyday. Do you track your car on occasion. If so get the Cayman.

New cayman S loaded with options is $80k+ which is about what decent mileage GT3RS's go for

I really like the RS5 but this is just nonsense... More to the point, for a car developed many years after the M3 debuted its capabilities relative to the E9x are a disappointment.

Not sure what you mean by "decent" but I have yet to see any reach that level of asking price. Post up an example or two if you have them.

The car really wasn't developed that many years after the m3. It's been available in Europe much longer than in the USA

I had an E90 M3 and my friend just got a RS5. It is the truth. Only thing I like better on my car was the precise steering. Not to say the RS5 doesn't hold its own in that department either. The RS5 revs to no end, sounds amazing on upshifts and downshifts. Honestly everything you touch/feel/hear in the RS5 is better. Not afraid to say it, the RS5 is a f*cking badass car. I hated on it a little too, until I actually got to sit in one and drive one.

I don't "hate on it" at all, and it is a better car in certain ways that have been covered here. I also drove one for a while and have considered getting one. My point was regarding your comment about "99% being a step above" the E9x - that just isn't the case. It may hit more of the right aspects in line with your priorities (styling, interior, ...) but it's a car more at parity with the E9x - better in some ways, worse in others.

About 3 years (2007 for the M3, 2010 for the RS5 - both first EU model years.) The RS5 also had updates in 2012 prior to US launch that were more than the typical BMW LCI updates.

How much better do its capabilities need to be before it's not a disappointment?

As it sits, it's a bit quicker in a quarter mile, quicker around a road course, better in the wet, gets better mileage, sounds better, subjectively looks better, has a better interior and is a genuine four-season car if equipped with all-season sneakers (or snows).

Seriously, the M3 is a terrific car, and has been a benchmark for years - but the Audi more than holds its own in everything except steering feel.

Both these cars are winners, with the Audi edging out the previous benchmark.

Bruce

PS - as for the Porsche, if your religion involves track days and early Sunday morning frivolities, the Cayman is clearly the beast to own. Otherwise, the Audi is a much more well-rounded car, especially for everyday use.

I guess I see the list of positives much longer than the M3 list. RS5 is quicker around track, quicker in a straight line. More HP, more TQ, engine revs higher, sounds better. Dual clutch just as good as my DCT. Looks way better inside and out. Fit and finish definitely a level above the E9x M3. Navigation with goolge earth is top shelf. If you spend your time hanging the rear end around the track or track your car on a consistent basis. Then yes the M3 is a better choice. Also unlike the M3 you can't get a RS5 for $500 over invoice.

Yeah that is a problem I have ran into at Audi dealers as well.
