No regrets getting M3 over S5.
I also ALMOST bought S5 but to me it all came down to finances. Stuck up Audi dealer was not offering any discounts off of the MSRP. When I asked them to throw in some basic goodies and they said no, I walked away and ordered my M3 with a small profit over invoice price.
It ended up being the same price as S5 and I ended up getting a much better car.
I would never consider a Cadillac and don't have the time to deal with all the issues MB throws at you.
As far as RS5 it is a nice car but it is no M3 and Audi should of done a lille better job differentiating RS5 from the rest of the gang. It looks just like a S5 with a wider rear end and uglier grill.
