    Sounds like you're an idiot!

    N'ring times:

    Audi RS4: 8 minutes 25 seconds

    BMW E46 M3: 8 minutes 22 seconds

    Can you believe Gizmo was wrong?! I certainly can't!

    the RS4 does 0-60 in 4.9 when the M3 does 5.2 sec. the RS4 is heavier but has 380BHP. The RS4 is a lot more of a useful car then the M3, and more exclusive. The M3 is not WAYYYYYYYYYY better then the RS4. I can't even say its better, because the RS4 is more confortable, and usefull, so u choose <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"></b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    Well first off, they are in different classes, second the M3's 0-60 isn't 5.2. I've seen it as low as 4.625 in Motor Trend. Second I never said it was better. Third off, somehow you were wrong again.

    The Audi RS4 runs a twin-turbocharged 2.7 litre V6. Come back and try again when Audi make a decent atmo six.<!-- Signature -->

    But officer...I pay your wages!! Hehe, too true, I should try that one some time...<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    I actually think the RS4 is awesome just cuz it's a station wagon, and it still hauls ass. But the two wouldn't really compare seeing as their stylings are completely different (sports coupe vs. wagon) haha.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    hmmm, you guys would be suprised when that station wagon passes you while your foot is on the floor of that M3 <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    the M3 IS a great car, but the RS4 is... faster !!<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    Please guys dont believe everything you read on this site indeed the database of information on this site is vast and impressive however not always entirely accurate. I like both the RS4 and M3 however, the M3 is actually quicker in reality - not on paper.<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    Audi is unreliable... I go for BMW, I don't give a shit if the "rs4" beats the M3... it is just for a very very little period of time so.. what the hell I still prefer the M3.<!-- Signature -->

    Oh you never said it was faster eh? "hmmm, you guys would be suprised when that station wagon passes you while your foot is on the floor of that M3
    the M3 IS a great car, but the RS4 is... faster !!" I guess someone else must have signed on under your name.

    Actually...no. The M3 beats the RS4 on drivability, engineering and price. The biggest gripe I've heard about the RS4 is that the computer overrides a lot of the driver's decisions...not ideal when you're accellerating through a corner and the power is suddenly cut. You can't completely disable the computer's control, by the way. It can be toned down to a degree but the failsafes are still there. For those M3 drivers with nuts of steel, however, pretty much every handling and traction aid can be switched off. What's more, the RS4 costs more dollars. The only reason the RS4 can keep up is because it's twin-turbocharged. Audi has no atmo engine that could keep up with the M3's six, except perhaps some of the 8's, but most of them are forced too. As far as sixes go, I think Nissan's new Z could have a go, if only Nissan would finally give the bird to Japan's 206kW power restriction.
     
  15. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    both cars are great, but the RS4 is just better (but it should be, it costs a little more, about $10,000 USD) but the RS4 is begger and faster, they both are lux-o, and they both are reliable (all german cars are) also for no money, you can bump up the PSI on the turbo's making it a lot faster, over just faster, and you can take off the speed chip, and it will go about 180MPH top speed, true, you could get a turbo on the M3, and make it just as fast, for about the same price, but the RS4 would still be bigger...
     
  16. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    Since we're comparing twin-turbocharged sixes against atmo sixes (real even contest, by the way), I think it's fair to throw the 300kW+ Nowack-tuned M3 into the mix. It would eat the RS4 alive. Yes, without a turbo in sight. Audi need to try harder.

    Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    Im sorry to say this but according to last months what car magazine all german cars are among the most unreliable cars on the road. I know no 1's going to belive me on that but if you dont check out the site, http://www.tiscali.co.uk/motoring/features/which.html
     
  18. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far


    haha better? not at all. The car is way too haevy for a sportscar, and I heard the gearbox sucks and its has way too much understeer.
    it's only better in a straight line and to 200km/h its 2 sec difference or so. The M3 in line 6 is a real race engine with 105.6hp/l and with an incredibel sound, the rs4 just has the old S4's 2.7V6 with two turbos on it, i don't like that stuff...
     
  19. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    rs4 is nice...but I'd still choose a m3 over it....even though rs4 looks nice and it has good performance...in my mind...the m3 will always remain top of its class....it just looks SOO good...with a great performance
     
  20. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    If your spendin the money for speed, (Audi costs MORE) ummmm, why would you want a big car???? If your spendin the money for faster laptimes, ummmm (Audi costs MORE, which is slower anyways), but.....why would you want a big car? especially .....a......wagon????
    plus the M3 looks nicer, and is sportier, uh, yea, ok, sure, uhhu, M3 for me please
     
  21. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    a very biased statement "all german cars are reliable"...i agree that many are...but it's like saying all australians use "mate" in everyday speech. stupid comparison but i hope you get the point.
     
  22. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    sorry you are wrong, ask any car magazine which they would prefer
     
  23. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    RS4 is... Fake! it needs two turbo's to get 380HP. BMW 343HP without. RS4 is quicker on wet but yesterday it was nothing when I raced one. (And it was dry) Quattro only work in the wet.
     
  24. Re: The Audi rs4... better than M3... by far

    how can you say a car thats cheats is better? putting two turbos on a car is pushing more air into that engine then it can possibly suck it in, mind as well put nitrous on it, its the same thing. bmw makes power naturally, it dosent need turbos or supercharge (mb). take off the turbos and then see whos faster.
