As some of you may have noticed already, tests of the Audi RS3 versus the BMW 1M have been a mixed bag. Mainly because, despite both cars sharing similar power ratings, each chooses very different ways to lead their horses the wheels. So, cutting out any cat and mouse chases or lap time comparisons, Auto Express took a more 'old school' approach to see which car is fastest - a quarter mile drag race.

I hadn't realized there was an RS3! Looks like a fun car.

As much as they may be competitors, I think they each have their own crowd they sell to. The BMW is a coupe, while the RS3 is a hatch/wagon. For practical purposes the RS3 just seems to be a better buy, while if style is the main focus, the coupe wins out. I'm biased of course, but I'd reach for the RS3...............

I'd go with the 1M and keep my A3, the M is more balanced from what I've seen
