read my reply in the last post, but if you'll notice the M3 wins hands down in the performance category, everythign else is subjective.

well if you throw out the ride and luggage space category (which dont really belong in a comparison of the high performance coupes) the M3 wouldve beaten the audi even though the audi got a huge points bonus for price i would be perfectly happy if they would just post the numbers they came up with, their opinions and left it at that.

Weight/contact patch = grip ratio

i thought lateral g's were grip on straight line acceleration, and transverse g's were the g's sustained while turning

the M3 is best in performance partly because it's much lighter, but it's sad how heavy the E46 M3 is. the S4 has the overall package though, with the 4 doors and the trunk space. plus, the ride isn't as harsh, and we all know you can't drive the car like a race car all the time, it has to be somewhat practical if you're getting a car like that. it's all about opinion though.

Dude regarding your comment that the S4 is a v8, i think it is a v6, might be wrong though...Let me know...

My goals in life:

1. Get a 318is or 325is.
2. Engine swap it with a 3.0L + mods.
3. Make it look hella sick.
4. Smoke everyone else who goes to my school (Camaros and Chevelles suck)
