    saw this, looks like they have made the new M3 a lot more "refined"

    Yeah have read it, and the cars both are pretty mcuh identical in specs, apart from the Audi having alarger boot, and more practical rear seat access/space.
    Both have the same bhp, v similar torque, fuel consumption, tank capacity, weight, cost etc etc...

    Also says the M3 CSL is due which will be more hard core than the M3, as it should be otherwise, what's the point?!

    Evo have a similar test, and slate the M3's fuel economy. They finnish saying that the feel of the M3 is better, even though Autocar slated the steering feel and the ride. Go figure!

    Evo put the M3 in front, Autocar put the RS4 in front.

    I drove the M3 yesterday, it's a good car, rear veiw shows the back box in plain veiw, once tarnished it will look poor, why did they not hide it?.
    Fuel economy was 12 MPG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I still prefer the RS.
