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 :rolleyes: i would be perfectly happy if they would just post the numbers they came up with, their opinions and left it at that.

maximum sustained lateral g's while in controlled tight turn. it measures the grip of the car

Weight/contact patch = grip ratio


At least when comparing cars.

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.

nah Lateral G forces are sustained when a vehicle enters a turn. Transverse G's are felt during acceleration and braking
