  1. M3 vs. RS4 avant

    Which do you think would win in a race, a BMW M3 or an Audi RS4 Avant. I would go with the Bimmer. It is faster and handles better. Overall, it has superior performance numbers despite the fact that the RS4 has more power. ///M power forever!<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  2. In a straight line...I'll bet the RS4 would wip the M3.
    On track...The M3 would be the better bet.

    Reason: Wheelbase.<!-- Signature -->

    Reason 2: AWD vs RWD. The RS4's AWD is geared to give you understeer in spades.<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. nah..i don't agree with u...i think the m3 would win or it would be a tie in a straight line....but then again its a total guessss
     
  5. The RS4 has a better power to weight ratio, so it accelerates faster. The M3 would almost certainly win around a track though.<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. True nuff.
     
  7. Track is all that matters. Viva M3.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. RS4 without any doubt.

    Accelerate better , brakes better , holds the road and handle as well as the M3.

    I wouldn't say that at all. These cars are pretty much exactly equal, if anything the M3 is slightly faster.

    M3: 8 minutes 22 seconds
    RS4: 8 minutes 25 seconds

  10. in a straight line the RS4 will win but it will be tight.
    M3 will win at the circuit, both cars have good handling but the RS4 is too much understeered and a little boring to drive. M3 is a real driver's car, the RS4 is just a fast stationcar for the german autobahn.
     
  11. M3 wins by superior handling and low weight.
     
  12. bmw m3 will give the rs4 a very good race even though the rs4 is 380hp and the m3 is 321 but never mind coz never to forget the m5 is 400hp and will smoke the rs4 out n e day!!!!!!!
     
  13. the E46 M3 actually has 343bhp - the E36 has 321bhp. The RS4 would win the 0-60mph time but the M3 would kick the RS4's ass around the track. The RS4 understeers too much to beat the M3 which handles superbly and is much lighter.
     
  14. isn't the rs4 a stationwagon? even if its not, i'll still take the m3
     
  15. m3 hands down
