    220bhp.Not as much as your old M3 but more than enough to see off alot of cars.

    Crikey, I'd never buy a car without checking those sort of specs/detail first !

    Well yes good point But I saw the car took it for a test drive liked it bought it deal done ! Like I said the ammount of power doesent realy matter I was just curios.
    Of course the M3 was faster With its 343 BHP ! But living with the ride on 19 inch wheels and rock hard suspension was simply not on !
    The Audi is superb Well built Quick enough And its just so much more useable for 90% of the time !
    My next car will certainly be an S4 or RS4 Cabriolet but for now the 3.0 sport is just fine !!

    I went from an A4 with lowered suspension and 19's to a 330 ci lowered on 19's and the ride is much better in the 330.
    RS4 cabriolet is a lovely motor,good choice.

    As above, the V6 is 220bhp at I think 6300rpm. Don't forget also that it has 300nm of torque from 3200rpm, so it's quicker than you might think.

    As above for reasons to change ! My M3 was a 2003 Yes it was faster when the road allowed But on our pot holed and rapidly deteriorating roads a car like an M3 is very hard work to say the least !!!!
    The M3 certainly wins on looks and pose factor But drive one for a day And for the first hour its great By the end of the day You will want to give it back !!!
