S5 and M3 side by side

My friends S5 next to the ///M.

Several things I notice;

1. Integrated spoiler on the S5 is nicer than the stick on M3.
2. Side mirrors on the S5 are too utilitarian vs. the M3 stylish areodynamic look.
3. Quad pipes on the S5 are just pea shooters next to the M3.
4. S5 (and all other Audi products) have VW door handles. :
5. Love it or hate it big mouth Audi grille.
6. S5 half ass moonroof with only tilt and screen cover. :
7. Nice Recaro's in the S5.
8. Front of Audi looks too "busy." I have a feeling that the new M4 will too.
9. Back seat of the S5 is tigher than an E92 and my head touches the roof.
10. Audi took the time to put "S5" on front brake calipers...


yada, yada, yada... I could go on forever.


Cheers,
Chris

The M3 looks more "tense" next to the S5. S5 lacks an aggressive note on many of the panels I think. C63 is more aggressive than the S5 and even the M3 I would suppose, but I much prefer the M3

:edit: As Lens said, ^^^^, it really lacks soul

Saw the RS5 yesterday and those tailpipes are the size of a child's head.

This thread re-affirms the obvious. M3 FTW

For as much heat that Bangle got for his tenure at BMW, the concepts of flame-surfacing and concave elements are only now being replicated by some vehicle manufacturers. I think the E9x M3 will age quite well.

A better comparison would be the RS5, S5 = 335

This is true. Sorry, don't know if there is an RS5 in Hawaii? Not yet, anyway.

Without a doubt, and despite the bias the M3 looks much better!

I got an S5 and kept it for two weeks before going back to the dealer and exchanging for the M3. It was like driving a boat.

M3 wins on all fronts.
