Different league, but for what it's worth, I smoked an RX-8 off the line, and when I slowed down and he attempted to pass me (dunno why...) I flipped the paddles twice and he didn't even reach my rear bumper before I took off. I don't know "how much" that would constitute, but it was a serious ass-whoppin'.
Performance-wise, it's not really fair to compare the M3 to the RX-8. The Mazda only looks fast, but when it comes to numbers, the M3 is either double everything or better looking.
A more useful comparison would be to something like the North American STi, which can beat a Mclaren right off the line. Thing is, STi's look immature and are usually driven by little kids, which is nothing to the classy and stylish aura of the M3.
Everybody likes to read about how great their favorite car is, but what you really need to do is make connections and experience the ride for yourself, instead of living vicariously and measuring dicks with people. In the end, the driving experience will be your deciding factor.

300hp STI vs 333hp M3
1) 0-60, they both 4.8 or 4.9sec, so they r the same.
2) highway, M3 wins becuz he got more hp.
3) STI is not lexury, and it has no shit. M3 more comfortable, the interior, GPS etc.
In conclusion, M3 is better undoubtly.
on highway, C32 might be faster cuz she got more hp, S4 might be same with M3 eventhough S4 got 7more hp than M3, becuz S4 is AWD, AWD is usually slower than rwd.
C32 is 5.1sec, S4 is 5.3sec, M3 is 4.8sec
so u know who better in 0-60
C32 and S4 are 4door sedan, not sport, so they not cool compare to M3
M3 better in enjoying driving, C32 good for sitting, S4 good for winter cuz its AWD, lol
