Fair Fight? 2008 BMW M3 Coupe vs. 2008 Audi S5 Coupe
Before you start sending us flaming e-mails complaining that a comparison between the 2008 Audi S5 and the 2008 BMW M3 Coupe is an obvious mismatch from the get-go, you should know a few things.
Our first full test of the $53,000, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 was a bit of a revelation. With a 354-horsepower version of Audi's direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 under its hood, the voluptuous Audi S5 ran a 13.3-second quarter-mile at 104 mph, just 0.1 second and 2 mph shy of the 420-hp 2007 Audi RS4 sedan. What's more, the S5's slalom speed is within a couple mph of the harsh-riding RS-spec sedan. "It ran a 13.3? With that kind of speed, who needs a $67,000 RS4?" we asked ourselves.
2008 Dodge Charger R/T vs. 2008 Pontiac G8 GT
Cars like the new 2008 Pontiac G8 GT and 2008 Dodge Charger R/T were once
supposed to be every American's birthright. Brawny, V8-powered, relatively
affordable rear-drive cruisers that can blow through a couple of big
Western states in an afternoon at 90 mph — their drivers staring at the
horizon through Ray-Bans, steering with one hand and smoking a Pall Mall
with the other.
Benz v Bimmer: 2008 Mercedes C63 AMG vs. 2008 BMW M3 Sedan
There will be no Camaro
vs. Mustang death match
this week due to a distinct lack of Camaro, so can we interest you
instead in a muscle-car comparison test? Here we have two classic
nameplates, each with a 400-horsepower V8 stuffed into a
smallish four-door body shell and powering only the rear wheels.
Naturally we're referring to those two paragons of modern muscle, the 2008
BMW M3 Sedan and the 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
Don't be confused by the German nameplates, the aura of high-tech
engineering and the rarefied price tags. The 2008 BMW M3 Sedan and 2008
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG match up as naturally as any muscle cars on Woodward
Avenue during the 1960s.
Battle of the Bimmers: BMW M3 v BMW 135i v BMW 335i
Before you start sending us flaming e-mails complaining that a comparison
between the 2008 Audi S5 and the 2008 BMW M3 Coupe is an obvious mismatch
from the get-go, you should know a few things.
Our first full test of the $53,000, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 was a bit
of a revelation. With a 354-horsepower version of Audi's
direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 under its hood, the voluptuous Audi S5 ran a
13.3-second quarter-mile at 104 mph, just 0.1 second and 2 mph shy of the
420-hp 2007 Audi RS4 sedan. What's more, the S5's slalom speed is within a
couple mph of the harsh-riding RS-spec sedan. "It ran a 13.3? With that
kind of speed, who needs a $67,000 RS4?" we asked ourselves.
We believe so strongly in the 2008 Audi S5 that it earned our Inside Line's
inaugural Editors' Choice Award.
So we acquired (hastily perhaps) another 2008 Audi S5 and set it against
the new 2008 BMW M3 Coupe, a car now fortified with V8 power for the first
time. Speed-reading the specifications sheets of these two cars, they seem
like natural rivals: the 354-hp, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 measured
against the 414-hp, rear-wheel-drive 2008 BMW M3.
But as it turns out, we gave the 2008 Audi S5 a bigger challenge than we
had initially intended.

Given all the praise heaped on the BMW 3 Series over the years, we can't
blame you for thinking there's more to the story. We've heard all the
conspiracy theories, most of them involving checks in large denominations
This might seem believable to a certain segment of the population, but
there's a far less interesting truth behind all those wins: The BMW was the
best car. Sure, certain rivals often upped their game in one area or
another, but the 3 Series always put it all together in a way that made it
So now the 2010 Audi S4 is here to take another shot. It's all-new this
year and the old V8 is gone. There's now a supercharged V6 in its place,
along with a lower price designed to better align the S4 with the BMW 335i.
The BMW 3 Series received a face-lift of its own last year. It was mostly
minor trim changes and the like, but we're told that iDrive thing was
tweaked again, too (oh, lovely).
Sounds like a fair fight, no?
2008 Audi S5 by Edmunds' Inside Line
Audi has figured out that a coupe should be beautiful, not merely
exclusive. Even as the typical German sedan has become a beast with swollen
fenders and a massive grille, designed to bludgeon the meek out of the fast
lane on the autobahn, the 2008 Audi S5 has a different look. Its curving
contours are leaner, more expressive and more energetic.

MSRP pricing for the M6 Gran Coupe, before options begins at:

During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will

presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!
