I'm sorry, but I think that it, or the RS5 is going to be in the garage after this lease is up.

I dont know the mods on the car..but I am guessing a BBK and a coilover kit..and then those wheels that are actually made by Champion Motorsports..you know..the guys that race the Audi R8s..and now the R10s...based outta florida.

Yeah, until you drive one...

I was close to laying down the cash for an S5 and had one for some time to test drive. Then I test drove the 335i coupe.

The S5 looks great, but doesn't drive as well as a BMW. Period.

Now I understand when my friend starts singing the Spice Girls when he sees an Audi.......Wannabe!!!!

My friends dad just picked up an S5, I still gotta check it out.

Regardless I would take the 335i over the S5 any day of the week.

The S5 has beautiful lines, which makes it more appealing than the 335. Although I haven't been in one for a while now, I remember that their interior was always great. Either way, I still like BMW's more

I think it looks great but I don't think that the red paint job flatters that S5's lines.

Other than that it looks stunning.

it looks like a big coupe like the 335. the headlights are almost merely rectangles, and that grill, not unique to just this car, is gaudy and fencelike. ( i dont like nissan's current grill or acuras, for that matter, or chyrslers on the 300m for ex).

Nice car, but I don't think it looks as nice as a 335i, the nose is too blunt looking compare to the sharp E92 nose.

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?
