    You're a young guy. Get the M3 unless you are married and have kids.

    S4...comes with a V8 and pushes 400hp...and its a sedan...easy to fit more people in it and have a good time...

    S4. For the reasons that I prefer the sound of the V8 over the straight six.

    Also there are far too many M3's where I live already, with many driven by women. As a result I'd take the S4.

    On a side note, Im fairly convinced I saw an M3 CSL on the road yesterday. Not entirely sure as it was going damn quick, but I did catch sight of the curved bootlid :big grin:

    M3... the S4 is a pig on acceleration. On the other hand, my friends 04 M3 has been in the shop 4 times since he took delivery of her. Has any one been reading on the # of electrical problems bimmers have been having?

    Old modded S4...maybe, but stock for stock....M3>old S4

    Since when is 340hp pushing 400?? :greddy:

    M3 has an inline 6 NOT a V6

    Even I'm sick of all the M3s out there.

    Performance:
    older s4 + chip + downpipes + exhaust > M3

    Spaciousness / Convenience:
    new s4 + 4 sluts in it since its bigger > M3 + 1 maybe 2 sluts cuz the backseats suck

    Gas Milage:
    M3 w/ I6 > S4 w/ V8

    Trackability:
    M3>S4

    Daily Driving Comfort + Lux:
    S4>M3

    My Pick....S4. :)

    after driving both, i'd be leaning towards the S4. i just think it a more well rounded machine.
