not sure what you mean exactly, but in raw acceleration and handling the M3 is quicker. however a few S4 6MT's with minor mods (chip, intake and exhaust) have been known to beat M3's in straight line acceleration - as the M3 is much more difficult to launch - the S4 is a piece of cake to launch. however if you dont necessarily need a track car the S4 is a great alternative - it has 4 doors, a nicer interior, some improved ergonimics, nice recaro seats, and better manual shifter. and if you get lots of rain and snow the AWD makes sence.

however on track the S4 is close enough that a good driver can catch a not quite as good driver. I have had the pleasure to pass many M3's on the track in my station wagon.

BTW, nice MCoupe
