Another strange pairing by Carwow, but Matt and Yani's banter is always funny.

RS3 are nasty little cars. Buddy has one bolt on and tune. It's surprisingly quick

Golf R doesn't really have much business being in this comparison.

The amount of fluff in these videos is ridiculous.

Fun to watch the actual races. Unsurprising results.

This video has basically every car I was cross shopping when I bought my m2comp. Still would pick the m2 after this video.

RS3 only makes sense if tuned. Once it pulls 600+ whp it becomes very fun.

Entertaining video. Surprise for me was how close the golf was in some of those considering how much cheaper and less hp it has. Good showing for the m2c in the standing races. For my money it's the m2 or golf. Spending someone else's money, Porsche. Not really into the other cars cause … save the manuals! :- )

Nothing strange about it. They are all fun small cars. They are five of the eight cars I cross shopped alongside the M240i, the Supra and the TT. I liked the Cayman the most but ended up with the M240i as it was the best value for the price and the best daily for our Canadian weather.

Nice how old m2 giving these guys run for their money. It is a 6 vs 4 but it's heavier too

New m2 with awd will blow them away

First m5 with awd dominated its segment
Now m3/4

Interesting strategy bmw has, taking drag speed crowns one area at a time

They've locked onto a new target audience. Straight line, bury the throttle, bro. Reminds me of AMG not too long ago, German muscle cars.

Hmm. I don’t buy my cars thinking about drag race results. Handling is much more important that straight line performance.

Right. This kind of straight line speed comparo is so irrelevant, but if I were 17 and just got my drivers license it might be interesting.
