    What do you think is king? The 2006 Audi RS4 or 2005 BMW Motorsport 3? (Just as a side note "Top Gears" J. Clarkson thinks the new RS4 is the new king, check it out on google video).

    near the same price. with RS4 Audi took a jab at the M3 so in the same ball park.

    The Porsche owners would get their panties in a bunch if you compared a M3 to a 911 LOL...

    rs4. it is more expensive but it is all around better. there was a comparison in car and driver a while ago that compared those two and some other car. the audi was the wiiner.

    You mean a cogster:noes:

    But I would talk the new RS4 over an e46 M3. We'll see when the new V8 M3 is released. But for now the RS4 is king.

    He's also an Englishman who doesn't like soccer :mamoru:

    Although, I have to side with him here and say that RS4>M3

    The No 3-series should have a V8. It's blasphemy.

    well the M3 is an older build, from 01. so its definately going to have a seniority issue. although the RS4 is definately an amazing car, too bad the seats in the US are toned down :(

    RS4 would "womp" all over an M3. it would not have a chance, in autocross or drag

    Are we comparing the new S4 to the E46 M3 that came out 5 years ago?

    so is it safe to say, with the new V8, the M3 will get even MORE expensive? like 55-60k??

    Christ, I'll never own an M3 :wtc:

    Coming from a 2002 E46 M3 and now driving a 2005 B6 S4 - it's not really fair to compare an M to the RS4. And for that matter to be comparing the new RS4 to the soon to be replaced E46 M3. The Audi is a 4 door car, the M3 - 2 doors. The new M3 will eat the S4 (its direct competition) as well as the RS4 - for less money. Audi is actually confusing its product line with both an S and RS line. For 70k+ you can get an M3 and have change left over. For that matter, you are getting into near M5 pricing territory - which an RS4 shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence with.....
