BTW, no, the M3 is not the S4 competitor, check the pricing.
Audi's 1 series competitor the A3, however, is no match for the 135i, unless they were to bring the S3, then maybe, maybe.
The S4 is a nice car, I drove it before the 135, I just couldn't live with the size.
Engines seemed similarly powerful, I just felt more at home in the 1 series. But i think it was all down to the size for me.
