The S4 (european version, 265 HP biturbo)do 0-60 mph in 5.5 sec, same as the M3.
BUT you have the turbo effect with S4 and more torque (400 Nm vs. 350 Nm); to 100 mph the two cars will do the same, but of course in upper speeds the M3 (european version, 320 HP), will do better and be able to overpass the maximum speed limited electronically by simply use the 5th instead of the 6th ! --> reaching 165 mph is possible !

But the (old) M3 is more noisy at high speeds..

What would you choose ?
