I have just read the article. They give the RS4 rave reviews. Here are a few quotes. " You can often hear the RS4 tearing towards irs red line, even when you're driving one of the other cars" "It's just so fast. The engine is a monster, and the way it deals with the nasty roads is very un-Audi-like. The gearchange is fantastic, the steering is smooth and consistant. And those eight-pot brakes are superb. Phwoar!" "The Audi's engine is one of the greatest. It gives the RS4 a soul" It got 5 stars as did the M3 CS and the C55 got 4. Here is the verdict. "After ten minutes behind the wheel the RS4 was my winner. Its got the looks the interior, the edge on performance. Forty-eight hours later, the deft balance and awesome adjustability and sheer exuberance of the M3 CS seemed insurmountable." It then goes on abit more about the M3 then says:- "The M3 is still the all-conquering action hero. Did i mention there's a new one out later this year?" So there you go folks although they finally choose the M3 the RS4 still seems superb!!
