enormous price? I want them to switch to full LED headlights because I think that those headlights look a little outdated compared to the other audi models.

But to answer your question... I'd never get an Audi, all of their competitors of each of their models are much better in comparison. All of their engines are underpowered imo as well (besides maybe the 5.2 V10, but even then it is held down bc of Lamborghini).

Not a chance.

I had actually thought this might be the car for me, but when I looked at it compared to the M3/C63/IS F it wasn't close. The attractive looks inside and out are not nearly enough to offset the shitty dealerships and service, ridiculously high price and weak performance.

If all that matters is looking pretty then have at 'er.

And why not? Not ALL Audi dealers are bad. Some BMW dealers are complete dicks as well. I say go for it. Decent GT car that goes fast when you need it.

Why would you ask this question in a BMW fanboy site, BTW I would, it's a much better looking car than the E92 M3, I don't give a crap about the performace since it's mostly unusable anyway.

I really wanted to like the S5, but for pretty much the same $ as an M3, the S5 is way too soft of a suspension in comparison. And the driving experience of the two was not close. So if you are looking at that level of car, its not a great car!

The 5 is like a beautiful woman in stiletto heels - great to look at, but don't ask her to run.

Yes with the new 3.0T. I love V8's but that engine in the S5 is ancient and thirsty.

I have to say that Audi has the best looking interior (fit and finish) better than BMW hands down, I just traded in my wifes 2007 A4 for a 2011 BMW 128i, I loved the interior of the A4 but the engine and tranny were horrible, back to the A5 is a beautiful looking car and if it is true that the S5 is getting the 3.0T more efficient engine and face lift then go for it!!!!

My brother picked up '10 S5 a few months back. IMO the car handled amazingly way better than my 335i on KW coils and with a great fast shifting tranny. The car also looks very sleek and unique. But power wise the car feels pretty darn heavy and sluggish. Absolutely nothing compared to my big turbo 335i. I wouldn't buy the car to start a big project on it thats forsure. Hopefully the new motor will be something special.

I thought this forum was about sharing our thoughts and opinion about cars, didn't think it was only about showing off our cars.

Im asking because im a bmw fan boy as well, but that doesnt mean im going to stick strictly to bmws, that would become boring eventually.

Plus the S5 is a very good car no matter what the fan boys say, it looks gorgeous, and i honestly think its fit to be a 6 series competitor.
