So far, so great. I traded a 2007 A6 4.2 for this S5 I have driven a few cars in the last three months, A5, new M3 and my S5. The S5 is the perfect blend of performance, comfort, style, quality and all weather security. I really liked the M3 but was nervous about the Wisconsin winters and RWD. Then I saw the S5 in person, drove it and fell in love.
Engine, six-speed, seats and style, inside and out.
I miss the voice command from the A6's MMI. Anyone who complains about the mpg is missing the point of this cruiser.
