    RS5 slower in wet vs M3

    In the recent Top Gear episode Jeremy put the M3 (w/ competition package) up against the RS5.

    In short he did not like the RS5 at all and found the M3's competition package to be a waste of money. RS5 was slower around a wet Top Gear track, by a full second.

    Comparo, starts at 4:40.



    Lap Times (wet track):

    M3 - 1:26.5
    RS5 - 1:27.5

    Footie, what happened to the Quattro? As you always like to remind people, the Audi's will always be quicker in the wet.

    Doesn't quite help when the car plows through every corner.

    "If you want a fast small car, just buy an M3. Forget about the competition package, it is a waste of money."
    Jermy was very positive about the M3 yesterday.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    He fails at being an audi fanboy. He should just retire the keyboard.

    That RS5 obviously didn't come with the Quattro option.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I have to say clarkson can be pretty funny sometimes...about the engine turning off when he spun and using the earth's resources to make the exhaust sound better put a big smile on my face
