M3 Faster than M4?

In the market for one. People always say M3 is faster than M4. Is it true? By how much?

LOL, that's funny. It's actually the opposite.

Theoretically, the M4 has a slight performance edge, being about 50lb lighter, having a lower center of gravity and having less aerodynamic drag (due to a smaller frontal area).

However, the difference is so minute that the two cars are practically equivalent in terms of performance. Any performance advantage is washed out in test-to-test variation.
