    That is the perfect spec M3... Now I can’t wait to see the Estate X Drive version which sounds like literally the Perfect all round car ever

    You know what car Mat owns? An Audi RS6 You know what car is the poorman RS6 The RS4 Thats why Mat prefers the RS4 over the M3

  • storck08

    The AWD M3 will destroy the RS4 in acceleration times. 0-60 in below 3s in good condition? We might see it.

    God it's sucha shame that the M3 has that grille because it's borderline PERFECT everywhere else. Truly stunning car inside and out that I would never even consider because of the front

    Impressive for a rear wheel drive? The RS4 is a 2019 model! The Bugs Bunny is £10000 more, slower by 0.2secs over 0-60 and 0.17 secs faster over 1/4 mile, these numbers hv so small margin that human error itself could be the reason. Do a head to head, to see if that 0.17secs is negated over a 1/4 mile. Overall: Off course the BMW is better, it's a 2021 model while the RS4 is 2019! Compare apples with apples and not BUGS BUNNY with a 2019 Audi RS4. And the RS4 is an Avant, while bugs bunny is a salon, differing aerodynamics

    One thing about Americans: The "estate" cars are really a fancy way of saying "station wagon" to us. And, unlike Europe, American station wagons in the 60's, 70's, and 80's were awful and ruined the "wagon" experience for us. It was the pre-SUV solution. Today, if we want something like a wagon, we get an SUV and we aren't thinking sports car. If we want performance, we don't get a "wagon" no matter how sexy Europeans try to make it and like it. That isn't a trend that will work until many of us are dead. But keep pushing it because the elites may have us dead in short order anyway.

    I've historically been an Audi fan over BMW and Merc. Not this time. I think BMW absolutely nailed this, except for the non-competition has a manual option which is why I say maybe a ding against not having that available. But the grill included. I think the reaction is off by a lot of people. Being used to pathetically small kidneys does not make these ugly. I think history will look favorably upon this particular model of M3 in all areas.

    What's the point in faking the vents? Wouldn't the cars have that much less wind resistance when going at higher speeds if they had real ones?

    The bmw looks like a pig from angry birds. The m3 is a massive failure in design. Didn't expect bmw to follow other car brands and make a huge nonsensical grill. Also what the hell is up with the back doors being so much smaller than the front. It sucks being a bmw fan boy in 2021. 🤣🤣

    Power delivery for M3 launch is really impressive. Also the breaking. But not much acceleration difference for that more HP in BMW. We need that test in xDrive though....😉

    In terms of the stats, remember the Rs4 is down on power since the M3 is the competition version than a normal M3. Welldone Audi. Now can u imagine if there was another more powerful version of the Rs4.
