Not really. In C&D's testing they both had identical quarter mile times of 12.6s at 111 mph. I was thinking maybe the C43 would have the advantage over the E53 due to its lower weight, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I'm not surprised that the M340i won too. I'm curious how it would have fared compared to the S4 3.0 petrol. I know the M340i is slightly faster but by how much is my question.

When it comes to the 4 pot cars, the Audi and BMW will be quite close. In fact, my stock A4 B9 did the 0-60 in 5.2s, which I think is slightly faster than my G20. With a racechip and an intake alone, my A4 felt so much faster than my current G20. And yes. Audi has the best brakes. Even my A4 was grippier and shed speed real fast and in a shorter distance compared to my G20. Had better pedal feel too.

M340 is faster than the C43 which is already faster than the S4/S5 petrol. The Audi is the slowest of the 3 cars.

A C43 is slower than an E53

Of course the 340ix would win that. I don't think everyone realizes how much of a sleeper this car really is

Gonna be hard finding a decent spec 340.. the day I got mine it was a M specialty dealer, the had 3. I picked the highest trimmed one. Came next day to pick it up and the other 2 of the 3 were gone and they haven't had another one since. All the ones around for sale are top spec with msrp upwards of +65$k. Reason they're still at dealers cause that price tag is ridiculous and nobody wants to pay sub 70k for a 3 series that isn't an M3

I would like to know if there would be a noticeable difference if there was one of our NA versions next to the European one. I also would have preferred to see it up against a C43 instead. Great result regardless.

Dang, the M340 is a beast. I often wonder if it's as fast as it feels when I drive her; yup, it is.

I don't even see why Volvo is trying. Aren't they about to limit the top speed of their cars to like 110 mph? Definitely not a performance-oriented brand and never will be.

In Europe they changed over to diesel only for the 2020 S4/S5 models. The North American market ones are still going to be regular gas engines.
