Earlier today, we asked you how Audi should respond to Juggernaut Advertising's BMW "Checkmate" billboard. We've photoshopped the 15 best responses for an überBrucegasmic automaker-slap-fight-of-a-mega-gallery below.
The funny thing is, I currently drive an E90 M3... Replacing my B6 A4. Oh yeah, and I've driven the former (not the latter, sadly) on the 'ring.
And I can say with authority that anyone who thinks (A|S)4 vs. M3 on the 'ring, or anywhere else, is a fair fight either works for Audi or is trying to justify their *4 purchase to themselves.
Before I bought the M it was a toss-up between an RS4 and the M3. Drove both extensively. The Audi had fewer features, less horsepower, less torque (although is also lighter), but was more expensive. I would (oh wait, I mean have) matched the M3 up to an A4, S4, RS4, and S5, and it steals all their lunch money, gives them wedgies, and bangs their girlfriends just to rub it in (well, maybe the RS4 would get to keep the girl).
And this is speaking as someone who loves Audi. Seriously. They make awesome cars, and I miss Quattro every day. But in a comparison, there's no comparison.
