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...

In the 1M, the journey is the destination. Sounds crass, so how about putting it this way: the present is a fleeting moment; after that, everything is memories. And after driving the RS3, it was hard to put a finger on exactly what you could remember about it - the grip, certainly, the power, the fact the ride had more give and cushioning than expected and the irritation that the seat wouldn't go anything like low enough - but after that, my mind started to wander. But days after driving the BMW, I could still recall the exact way it tackled particular corners, how it moved over rough surfaces, entire sections of an early-morning blat were vivid in my head.
