unless you need all wheel drive, then the S4 is better in that respect.

i know! M3 still owns the S4.
Audi is playing the MBZ style which is using big engine!
thats cool, tho.
the V8 S4 makes the M3 look so much better with only a great I6 engine!

240 is well enough, hell, i think the 184 is uber fast.

if thats the next gen 3, the next gen M3 will have a V8, and the gap will still be too big. And BMW needs 260+ to compete with cars like maxima, g35, acura tl type S....225 just doesnt cut it anymroe.....280 would be ideal in the 335 (hell, the g35 coupe has that much out of a 3.5) and the m3 would be nice with 370hp....

yeah, but then cars are getting to fast, too quick. the 280hp G35 coupe isn't that much faster than the 330Ci. i think the G35 coupe does 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds, that's horrible for that much power. and power doesn't mean anything, too much and it might ruin the overall driving experience
