1M vs. RS3

Couldn't upload due to the filesize, so have linked to  a thread on the darkside.  As they say over there, it's quite a good review:

It's a close call, except for the perfectly balanced BWM comment. Again.

1M styling wins it for me also - although not seen either in the metal.

RS3 kills a 1M in a drag race in the new top gear mag. 3.8secs to 60! Impressive, makes you think doesn't it. They sound amazing too.

1M's are fast!

Drive them off the ship for delivery.. One I got was not limited... bit brutal!
Didn't seem as fast as the 335d though

These comments used to annoy me, until I got my 335D and other BMW models. It pains me to say it, but they are so right. The balance and feel the BMW has is just unreal and a shock after coming from an Audi. A big noticeable difference.

Tell me about it. Almost lost it trying to play with a 130i through the twistys (on the private rally course) round my way.

For Its RS3 I don't like the look of the M1.

1M looks awesome in the metal!! Saw a black one last week.

But if I was gonna dump 40k on a BMW I'd get a used M3 and mod it.

12.4 1/4 mile is pretty impressive. Most 500hp (R)S4's here would be happy with that number. With a remap etc the RS3 must be a fair bit quicker still. For the traffic light grand prix the RS3 wins hands down - but  how much is thanks to the DSG box? Would the M1 be quicker still with the DCT box (if it was available?).

Strange how Clarkson "only" managed 4.6 secs in the RS3 when he tested it a couple of weeks back for Sunday Times!
Im wondering where these full seconds are disappearing to? ( same as TTRS) I can understand a really good driver/perfect conditions/well run in car losing a couple of tenths, maybe, but a SECOND?

Love the 1M's...  Don't know how much better it'd be over my BMWP 135i though?!.....
