2011 Audi S5 Premium Plus quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


I recently traded a 08 BMW m3 sedan for a 2011 S5 and I am thrilled!!
While the m3 is a fantastic car, it is not a fantastic everyday car.
I made the switch because of the s5's seductive good looks, v8 power, and 4 wheel grip.
The s5 interior is stunning visually and very user friendly (BMW Idrive is a mess!)
The seats are extremely comfortable and infinitely adjustable.
The B&O sound system is fantastic, and would say on par with the best from BMW.
Behind the wheel; great steering feel, engine power is substantial but not overwelming. Overall build quality and materials are excellent.
My only grips are: the pano roof only vents and the overhead sunglass compartment is tiny!

Best Features

B&O sound system, Nav and MMI are superb! Quatro, Silk smooth acceleration.
