LOL! DYNOsaur! My first time reading that one! Nice RS4. That's a serious piece of kit!

Beautiful machine. I have a 2006 E55 AMG. It's automatic, not manual (almost all AMGs for USA market are automatics). While it's not a perfect machine; steering ratio is slow (I prefer a faster ratio so less turning the wheel), steering feel is lacking, brake pedal feel is lacking (but very powerful brakes from 8 piston front calipers), suspension is too firm (and for this much firmness, I expect less body roll), and the transmission is a little slow to shift... It overall has a wonderful charm as a very prodigious and thirsty highway cruiser. I'd drive it down to LA more often, but there are just too many fuel stops!
I feel like I should be referring to 30 or 50 years ago using that terminology, even if the E9X M3 platform was retired only in 2013. But it is accurate. Very few naturally aspirated high performance cars being made now, the GT3 being one of the few remaining stalwarts.

Torque at any RPM, gear selector goes where you point it without hesitation, sounds like a million bucks and the KW does a lot of magic to the car. Just an all-around versatile performer whereas the GT3 requires a lot more concentration for every move you make. Not a bad thing but for street use, the RS4 wins. The GT3 is dialed-in for mostly track use and I quit going there years ago but still do canyon runs. Both great cars in their own different ways but if I had to keep one, it would not be the Porsche.
