    no surprise

    Re: BMW M3 vs Audi S5 vs Porsche Cayman S vs Vaux VXR8

    Thanks for the link, Temm

    I like the approach of the comparo review not to judge by raw numbers only (0-100,0-200 etc.), but to focus on driver involvement / fun behind the steering wheel

    In this respect IMO the core statements are:

    about the M3
    "It's not that the new car handles poorly - far from it. The M3 turns in more incisively than the Cayman S, has colossal grip and great poise and agility. But you don't feel part of the experience as you do in the Porsche. It's as if the engineers have focused so hard on delivering a technically impressive machine, they have forgotten that it needs to be fun for the driver first and foremost."

    about the Cayman S:
    "The Cayman S is sublime on all roads and flatters every driver. More involving and rewarding than any rival, it makes the M3 seem flat-footed."

    Re: BMW M3 vs Audi S5 vs Porsche Cayman S vs Vaux

    Well, M3 is more practical, able to transport 4 people and better for dailyuse than a Cayman. You cant win them all

    Its shame BMW has built the new M3 to be accepted by a broader audience meaning better comfort and better for everyday-use. Sales seem to be more important than tradition. Its not like BMW suddenly forget how to build drivers cars. I guess we have to wait for M3 CSL.

    Autoexpress been against the M3 V8 since day 1 in Marbella, I see no change from their side. Top Gear were more positive towards the new M3 than Autoexpress.

    Too bad Porsche will never equip the Cayman with a 400hp engine. It would eat the heart out of the M3 and many other cars.

    VXR8? Haha not in the same league!

    Re: BMW M3 vs Audi S5 vs Porsche Cayman S vs Vaux VXR8

    Temm,thank you for posting the article. All I can say having owned a Cayman S for one month now: I LOVE THIS CAR !!!!!! I am having so much fun I cannot keep myself from jumping in and sprinting down the highway. O,K. I know, I know,......... this has to stop.
