It's been a long time coming for one reason, the world ECONOMY. And another thing, I don't agree it will destroy the M3, but it will be better in every single discipline, be that braking, acceleration, cornering, etc, etc. In purely performance terms it will do the numbers but I keep insisting to people on this forum that performance is only one small part of the owership process, living with the thing is the biggest part.
The longer the car sits in the development process the better the end product will be. I know it been longer than even you believe, this is one very important car for Audi, more so than the R8 ever was.
