The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Audi S4 has aged gracefully—and still has fleet V-8 feet and great handling, too. The 2008 BMW M3 redefines the performance envelope for BMW's 3-Series range--but at a significant weight and price penalty. You might be going too fast to notice, though.
