Nice. I personally would of waited for the s/c engine, but still a nice car none the less.

But how often do you take your car to track? To me, regardless of how it performs on the track is meaningless. If you wanted a track car, you should have got an M3.

They are not putting the S/C in the S5 coupe anymore.

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.
The S5 is gorgeous. The only problem that I have with it is that it's bulky. Love the LED's(not when you turn the signal on though) and the performance is on par with the 335i, somewhat.

It's extremely easy to modify to keep the LED's on while the turn signal is on.

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.

Yeah, I came to the same conclusion.

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.
