If this is the case, then imagine the RS5 lighter than the RS4 with the new MLP platform (better weight distribution) and more power
Audi use a different standard (can't remember the names - I think Audi uses DIN and BMW uses EU) for quoting weight - basically they state unladen weight, whereas BMW includes 70kg for driver, luggage and full tank of gas in their quoted weight. Hence the M3 using Audi's standard would be in the vicinity of 1560kg or so (3432lbs), which seems to agree with what many M3 owners have found...
