Seems like a pretty good car. Going to have to drive one once they depreciate.

Great engine. Unfortunatly unsporty container. The fate of many great engines of the recent era... S65, S85, Mercedes M156, etc.

In the near luxury entry-class car war between the 2 Series, CLA and A3, this RS3 punches pretty hard. It's good competition for BMW to improve their M2 so it can at least stay on par with the RS in a straight line dash.

Funny thing is the m2 is faster from a roll race.

Lol was going to say this - M2 is right on top of the Audiís trap speed - probably reasonable to assume the M2 is marginally faster from a roll if not merely equivalent.

^ That 10.55 was with ethanol, Toyo R888's and the seats ripped out.

They didn't test it with a tune alone. With their 93 tune and Toyo R888 tires their best time was 11.13. Stock tune and R888's was 11.85.

All of this is in the comments below the video on YouTube.

That's on the r888's as well though. From a launch, it's hard to beat awd and grippy tires. I'm guessing the upcoming M2 CS with the s55 will be a beast when tuned. Not sure how fast tuned M2's are getting down the quarter mile these days.
