Good news for all the M3 fans on the site, looks like you're still at the top of the heap!

From the article -

How does it compare?

A BMW M3 is sharper, faster, far more interactive and I have to assume - nothing like as relaxing to live with. The combination of S-Tronic and 4WD will really suit the UK market. The Mercedes C63 AMG is closer in concept and far more characterful, but on a damp road its driver would be all over the place following an RS5. Which actually sounds rather fun. The GT-R trounces the Audi for speed and dynamics but its interior is nothing like as appealing.

Anything else I need to know?

I'm going to say something a little controversial, but I was a touch disappointed with this car. It's nothing like as characterful as the last RS4, and for all its technical brilliance it lacks roll-on performance ironically just the type that the turbocharged S4 offers. It's a fine car, but a long way from perfect.
