Heidi (M3) and RS5 photoshoot

A colleague of mine recently purchased an Audi RS5. After waiting months for his car to get shipped to California from his Euro delivery, we were finally able to tear up some backroads and pose the two beasts together for a photoshoot.

The RS5 is a gorgeous machine, and it sounds incredibly mean. Still, it's more of a grand tourer than the M3 is, and I prefer our car's character to it. Amazing car all the same, however.

Enjoy the pics:

Wheels and headlights suck on the RS5, IMO. I like the headlights from the euro model RS5 (last year) MUCH BETTER.

Your M3 looks sportier and more purposeful in every way. (Mine is also named Heidi).

Thanks for sharing the photos!

Nice photoshoot. Titanium package is a must on the RS5 IMO.

Even next to the newest competition, the M3 isn't looking old to me. Front end is all time good.

I agree. You have to get the Titanium Package. Chrome around the windows and on the grill make it look goofy. The big body has to have 20s or 21s.

100% agree. The pre-FL lights look so much better. And what the heck are those wheels? Looks very very pedestrian.

I'll take the M3 in terms of looks too.

I think that grill on the Audi is BOSS! But overall, the ///M is just a better-looking beast. Awesome photos man. What kind of camera were you using?

You could cook a few porterhouse steaks on the RS5's grill

My colleague took those pictures. I believe he was using a Canon 5D Mk. III.
