Audi RS3 vs BMW 1 Series M Coupe
Both the Audi RS3 and BMW 1M are a solution to a complex equation. Time for some Top Gear maths...

So it's a throwback, then, industrial revolution tech made good? Emphatically not. This should be the future of performance cars: small, light, punchy and, yep, a bit compromised. Personally, I'd have a 1M over an M3, in fact over pretty much every car I've driven this year. It's not cheap at £40k (neither is the RS3), but BMW's only making 450 for the UK. Go get one. Forget 3.8 - settle for 4.5.
