Fifth Gear: Audi RS3 vs. BMW 1-Series M
Fifth Gear UK and its famous host Tiff Needell compares the Audi RS3 versus the all-new BMW 1 Series M Coupe. The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two things in common... Power. Each offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of torque. However, they are two very different beasts. The Audi's 2.5-litre five cylinder turbo drives all four wheels via a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The BMW, on the other hand, has a 3.0-litre straight six twin-turbo and it sends all its power to the rear wheels via a good ol' fashioned six-speed manual. While the 1M is rumored to redline at around 7,000 rpm, the RS3 is able to rev up to 6,800 rpm. The RS3 sprints to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.6 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph). The compact car weighs in at only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 pounds). On the other hand, the 1M is rumored to run to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds and weigh in at 1611 kg (3,552 pounds). So, who takes the win home? Watch the video to find out...

BMW 1 Series M Coupe review - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/266848/bmw_1series_m_co up.html#ixzz1Mt2wVTdl Auto Express gets behind the wheel of BMW's latest M Power car, the 1 Series M Coupe. Powered by a 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine - a tweaked version of the unit from the 135i, it is capable of 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 155mph. Could this be the best M car since the original E30 M3? The new 1-Series M Coupé is about as back-to-basics as BMW's performance models get these days -- it's a simple formula of a powerful engine, a manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive. Factor in compact dimensions and you should have a spiritual successor to one of the most-loved M cars in history. But is it any good on UK roads? Auto Express took the wheel to find out.
