M3 for sure. S5 is a heavy pig. Also, IDK if that is the right comparison. Probably an RS5 would be better. Even then the M takes it. But the S5 is no slouch either.

At the risk of getting flamed, I'm actually like my S5 more than my 3. The 3 was much faster off the line. But the S5 is much more comfortable and stylish. I feel much less like a racer boy.

An example...had a modded subie roll up on my on 53 and then roll by. Had not desire to try and run it down, where with the 3 I would have been all on it. Watched as it drove like an idiot. I just did my thing and leisurely was up to about 105 before I knew it and on his ass. I realized what I was doing and just decided to follow him unless he took an unecessary risk and never lost him.

The engine felt smooth and unpanicked.
