I think for those who mod their 3ers they have been able to do most of these things. I keep mine stock. Trust me, I tried to like the B8.5, one of my requirements for my replacement was 0-60 in no more than 5s. The S4 was the only candidate prior to the x-drive, and here I am going by manufacturer's claims. At the time I was debating getting the Hybrid 3. I had not seen the M Sport in EBII in person and I was quite miffed that I was about to spend over 50k on something I was not really crazy about. Once I saw it, there was no turning back. The interior trim with the m sport steering wheel and the hexagon aluminium trim finish it off quite nicely. I think its a little slower than the S4 by 0.1-0.2s but at this level of performance, who cares really.

One thing that is often noticed in the exhaust note of the N55, its pretty cool for a six cylinder.

The Nappa leather interior in the S4 smells good though
