You probably haven't driven an RS4. An RS4 will smoke an M3 on the track.

I haven't driven any of these 3 cars, but I can guarantee you that the BMW will be the best around a track. I'm a Mercedes fan, I'd rather buy the C63AMG, and I'd also rather buy the RS4 for non-performance reasons, but facts are facts, and BMW are much strongest in the performance area.

RS4 is simply stunning. When I see it on the street I can't help but stare. The M3 and C63 don't really do the same thing... although that E92 coupe is gorgeous, too.

i think i may have to trade up from my S4!

Read the review. M3 won because it was the best handling car, best weight balance front to back (Audi understeered like a b*tch due to all the weight pinned to the radiator), ran the fastest lap around the race track and was the most fun car to drive.
Top Gear, Motor Trend, Fifth Gear and list goes on all have declared M3 the winner in head to head comparo against these two cars. M3 is the benchmark again.

only fools from Top Gear, Motor Trend, Fifth Gear will drive other people's cars like idiots on a race track and declare the M3 to be the best. I don't trash my car so I won't take the crap from morons about which is the best..

Casey you are a tool. Rather shut up and go play with yourself in Malaysia you moron. BMW is clearly the best and those that cant accept that should just rather just not comment.

I had a 2003 M3, and I hated the thing. It wa slow, way over rated, it was always at the shop of rone thing or another. I traded it for a CLK500 and it was the best thing I did.
Plus BMW don't hold up s well as Benz's do interior wise. BMW sucks, I had 4 of them...

You can't go wrong with any of the three cars. It's a matter of taste and individual preference at those prices. I had a 2004 M3 and it was lot of fun to drive. I also test drived the 2008 M3 sedan and it was amazing. More than enough ponies for me and the handling was better than my old M3. However, I have two young kids and I need more room for baby seats in the back and trunk room so the new Mercedes C63AMG would be my choice. Plus, it's automatic so my wife can drive it too. M3 won't have the SMG until next year. I never thought I would buy a mercedes until I was 60 yrs old but the new C class is very sporty and aggressive looking and I might buy one soon. Just my Canadian cents.

If you want to be thought of as a human, buy the Merc or the Audi.

I've had an RS4, M3, C63 AMG. but none of them drive as good as my Audi Locus. it hasn't came out yet for all of you rich kids wannabes. but since I'm the son of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. i have special privileges. So stop it with your inferior automobiles and start driving some real wheels.

i agree, the m3 is good but who wants a silent v8, the rs4 and de amg are thunderous, but my choice is the benz for the amount of power on tab and the thunderous v8 and plus it is an amg

This talk about BMW handling on the track is pure nonsense!!
For the same kind of $, if I want handling, I'd get a Cayman S. No car, including the 911, can beat the handling of a mid-engine car, except another mid-engine car.
The C63 is a true 4 doors, 5 seats car. the BMW is not.
The BMW is a jack of all trades and a master of none.

I have grown up around BMW's all my life and now as i prepare to get my first car at 16, the audi rs4 looks intimidating, but under the hood is no comparison to the c63, but the c63 does not have the handling skills as a bmw does. So what is it that you are going for, speed, style, or handling. The m3 look similar to the rs4 so you can count the m3 as handling and style. I am looking deeply into the 09 m3s just cause of the style and what i want to do with it.
