I love certain Audi's.... but not the A5. Now if he's talking... S5.... I'd take that over a BMW any day. The S5 is a ****ing beast mode v8 with 400+ hp. Those are 52k though so it's off topic for me to talk about. I'm always looking for bang for the buck and the 335i I has significantly more bang for the buck in my eyes. Top notch warranty as you mentioned, more features, significantly more power. As I said... the ultimate balance in a vehicle is a 50/50 weight split, RWD and turbo/turbos.... all of which the 335 have. Not to mention it still gets very solid gas mileage with all of that weight and power.

Yup, agree that the A5 shouldn't be compared to the 335. It should be compared to the 328. S5 is a beast but the RS5 is gonna be the shit. Going to be way overpriced though. Think I'll settle for an M3 for my next ride.

I thought the new gen of M3's are an insane 60k+? It's funny because they put the 2012 M3 up against the new 5.0 Mustang (regular GT) model... and the Mustang not only barely lost on the track... but beat the quarter mile by like .1. The GT ran a 12.7 stock to the BMW's 12.8. Point is.. it's crazy that you're basically paying an extra 30k for two more doors, luxury and name brand. I couldn't do that!

I know I'm thinking like a broke ass though haha. If I had enough cash... I'd see the value in Euro luxury I'm sure.
