basically bought one...had insurance andeverything. But..they had problems with the title being in germany and kept delaying delivery. In the week that passed, I started checking my options. thats how I ended up with the 335..but it was close.

My review (my opinion only)

Looks: S5
Interior S5..pretty big margin here
performance: dead even stock
Mods available for reasonable$: 335 pretty big margin here
handling/suspension: even--maybe slight edge to 335
sound: S5 in a cakewalk-awesome v-8 rumble
uniqueness factor: S5
price: 335

couldn't make up my mind...loved them both and needed an awd car. Final decsion was really two factors: aggressive dealer versus passive one, and, available mods. Now that I have installed JB2H and downpipes..I have no regrets. This car is a screamer, and a bit of a sleeper (doesn't really turn heads like I think the S5 will...and thats how I want it)

ever seen this comparison?
