BMW has 335i coupe, sedan and M3 coupe, sedan.
It is the S5, regardless of price. An E92 is more expensive than an E90. Coupes are almost always more expensive than the sedan.

i personally don't like the BMW interiors either. but its better than most other car's interiors out there, so can't complain.

btw i just looked at cars.com to check out the S4 interior. i definitely like the BMW interior more (as long as it doesnt have the grain wood trim).

You are putting words in my mouth, I said there are better cars out there, as a complete package in it's class. I never said they outperform it. Please, I don't need you to tell me what to do. Keep your advice to yourself.

BMW interiors are simple and clean.

Audi Interiors have way too many damn buttons.

I think there is an option to change your wood inserts to aluminum or something else more desirable.

That's just my opinion of course. I personally like BMW's simple and easy interior. Audi's have way too many buttons and they're way to cluttered for my taste. I like to be able to find the thing I want quick, not have to look through 1000 different buttons and try to find it.

The biggest problem with wood grain IMHO is they always use a heavy gloss laquer. It would be nice to have a matte finish that really showed the grain.

Anything modded gets looks.

The S5 is a better car, bar none. It's not all about speed just because our cars are slightly faster and handle slightly better. The S5 is gorgeous in and out, while still maintaining similar performance #'s to our car.

I'm not saying our 335's aren't great! I'm just giving respect to where it's due.

I still think the 335 is better than the S4 in most categories, but the S4 is a fantastic car nonetheless.

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

So you state that the interior is better than ours, but you don't like the seats, stick shift or steering wheel... 3 out of the 5 most important elements in the interior (seats being 1, steering wheel 2).

I would agree, except in this case, all the performance tests done on the S5 state how poorly it behaves on a track.

The best way I can express how I feel about the S5 vs 335 is:

The 335 is Jason Bourne, while the S5 is James Bond.
