Here's a great video of the new Audi RS4 and the BMW M3 CS going head-to-head on the U.K.'s "Fifth Gear." It's over 12 minutes long, but there's lots of energetic sideways driving to make it worthwhile. Much more fun than the inevitable enthusiast magazine track comparison.

      i had the chance to sit/ride in the RS4 during the Audi "Streets of Tomorrow" w/ a pro driver and HOLLLLLYYYY S************T it is an amazing car.

      Everything Tiff was doing I felt I was right there after this past weekend.

      Hands down AUDI RS4! if i had the $$$ lol.

      #7 Yeah, Audis are freakin awesome unless you you either 1. Own one out of warranty
      or 2. Have to work on them for a living (I used to)

      Audis are by and large electrical disasters, and very difficult to work on.

      And bgdc - how many times have you lapped Anglesey? Tiff and Plato, hundreds if not thousands of times.

      You might be right that the "action shots" were filmed for television, but to knock the drivers...I guess you haven't really seen the actual show.

      I admit though, that Top Gear is still more fun to watch even though none of the hosts are racing drivers like on Fifth Gear.

      Tiff Whomever and Jason Socrates may have won a billion races, the fact is, the footage they use in that lame "report" shows them entering corners in a sloppy fashion. Perhaps the editors picked the shots that look the most 'exciting' but watching the footage one would assume those two talking head bozos couldn't pilot a ford festiva around a parking lot without getting serious nosedive.

      BTW, the M3 is not an expensive car. You can pick up a used 02 M3 for sub-30k. New ones are still a relative bargain at 49k - not including all the discounts BMWCCA is sending out to lure people into buying an 06.

      I would still take the M3, but the coolest part of the video isn't the cars. Its the guys tearin' up the track in Business Casual clothes.

      I don't know if it was the driver or the car but the Audi didn't come off looking great in the last test with the exception of being to pull away with power what it lacked in handling.

      Wow, neither guy seems to take a good line in the corners. On the track i'm shocked how many people with far superior cars than mine simply can't keep up their speed in the corners. These guys would fit right in with many M3 owners - more machine than they can handle.

      As for the RS4 - it's a pig. Look at the weight on that thing. Yikes.

      drool

      Love the Audi

      The M3 put up a decent fight winning 1 of the 3 so not a total blow out.

      Wait until the new M3 arrives, then compare again. That will be a great showdown! I predict - an M3 victory!!

      AMAZING--- Both of the cars and both of the drivers!!!
