The RS5 I have yet to see a comparo drive, but the S5 gets left in the dust for sure.
The V8 S5 is one of the most overhyped and disappointing cars I have driven in years to be honest. I drove it on the street and the track while working for BMW and the Lexus IS-F was actually a better all around car with the only issue in the IS-F being the 8 speed automatic. The S4 is easily a better car the the S5 as I have driven that as well with and without the drive select system, I think thats what it is called. How dos the TTRS sound? Like I said my favortie Audi besides R8 and actually my favorite non supercar Audi almost ever. Black an White are my 2 fav colors also.
