And RS4 is a 5 door wagon and M3 is a 2 door coupe. Not even competition.

Well the BMW despite being 5 year behind Audi is basicly faster car on dry and for sure more fun to drive.

And there is already new M3, and there will be new C-class

Impressive that RS4 estate is "noticeably faster" against the very rapid E92 M3. In the real world it certainly will be.
