Wow, first time I've seen the front end of an S5 with amber....why?! That just nearly killed the front end for me. They should've done the amber inserts like most modern cars. Nontheless, the car is still stunning, albeit much chunkier looking in these pics in comparison to the official photos.

You guys at least have to check out the electro-magnetic parking brake!

it is so cool, push-button parking break is one of the coolest features in this car. And guess what, like most other things in this car, its standard.

When i order i will only need 3 options. 1) tech package 2) navi 3) carbon fiber interior trim.

It looks a class above the new 3 Coupe. Visually it slots between the 3 series and 6 series, and I'd take it over BOTH cars.

Do you always have to mention in your post that s5 is one class above 3 series? I personally think that for that much money Audi S5 is nothing special. Itís definitely 2 classes below 6 series. M3 is definetly class above S5.

They didnt look upon a 19 year old so nicely, but all in all it was more than acceptable. They gave me a drive and all. Send me a pm if you dont mind I need to find some places to eat around here haha.

Nice car, congrats!

It looks chunky compared to E92s.

Must be the color, but these are the first pics of the S5 that I didn't like.

I like the front (very strong grill), the rear and the interior (kicking major ass). But, the side view is just not doing for me, especially the rear to hood roof slope and line with the hard-angled rear pillar. Just not in love with those aspects.

Don't get me wrong...great looking car and a decent performer, but for over $1,000/mo. on a 3-year/12k mi. lease (MF of .00325 ), I'd say the E92 M3 or 335i might be a better choice for the $$ (on a lease anyway ), imho...

I think the S5/A5 will be as popular as the 6/5 series.
