Concerning the petrol engines, look at it this way:

The 328i with the new 2.0l turbo inline 4 (N20) competes with the A4 and its 2.0l turbo inline 4. I don't believe Audi's old 3.2l V6 is available anymore.

The 335i with the 3.0l turbo inline 6 competes with the S4 and its 3.0l supercharged V6.

The former RS4 and now RS5 compete with the current M3.
