Hey Jeef, I read your prior posts in this thread, and I understand how you feel about your 335. I've concluded it would be impossible to have a decent and non-fanboyish conversation with you.

Anyone reading this don't get me wrong. I truly miss my piggyback on 100 octane, because that was just an amazing thrill to redline in a straight line at stop lights and onto highways. The BMW performance in a 335 without a doubt walks and smashes the S5 in every way i can think of in regards to handling and performance. But there is so much more to the driving experience than just going fast in a straight line. And to give the S5 some credit, i've taken some wild turns with the Rear differential, and its pretty damn awesome too. But in a straight line. 335 will smash and kill an S5 all day long guaranteed hands down.


But that's about the only thing i miss from my 335. I heard the I-Drive got updated after i got my 2007 model, so I must say that I never test drove a new 335 version or played with their new I-Drive system, so maybe i missed out on the new features and convenieces that upgrade I-Drive system provides.

But i can tell you I can't believe i even put up with the 2007 I-Drive after playing around with the 2010 MMI of the S5. Having a dual screen in the center console and the dashboard of the S5 has made my driving experience that much more pleasurable.
Having two screen to navigate in the MMI system is just plain awesome.

You're right, I'll go to my local dealership and play with it, and then i'll restate my opinion with the new I-Drive as reference. I love cars.

Well, that is no fun, i'm sorry you dont like the operating system that's in your 335. =(

I'm still interested to see what's new in the updated I-Drive.

that is useless information seeing that a very large majority of people never track cars.

Yes, exactly what I said I meant. Also I explained in the post after why I though the interior was better excluding these three major parts.

I could care less about I-drive/ MMI....or whatever. Tech's cool and all but it's just not a big deal to me. If it was I would have saved $$ on my 335 and gone with a loaded G37S or something. Japanese cars always have cool tech. Too bad the G just can't even compare to the driving experience I get with my 335.

S5 coupe is definitely a looker. Honestly, if I wasn't in a bimmer my second choice would probably be an Audi. Definitely Audi over Merc, unless we're talking a CLK black series or a serious AMG. I love the Audi seats.

I'm sure I've said things that have made me look like a BMW fanboy, and I'm not denying I am one.......After all we are on a bimmer forum

Interior IS better than ours.
Exterior is great (especially the lights of course)
Handling was fantastic, no wheelspin in light rain.
Braking and steering were tight.

Felt slow but definitely wasn't according to speedometer.

Don't like the seats.
Don't like the actual stick shift.
Don't like the steering wheel.

Combine these two cars and I'll be

I agree on the interior bit 100%.

The exterior I think ours is better.
