It looks much better in the outdoors, rather than in pictures or in the garage.

ANd, it looks REALLY good when you are an observer looking at the Misano Red RS5 roll by....

Too bad one cannot drive and be a pedestrian at the same time...

No, I do my service at Audi of Richmond.

Was the car you saw also a Misano Red RS5?

Or a S5? Or an A5?

Yes, the S4 has great performance numbers, but you are right: The A4 2.0 TFSI is much better on gas.

In my humble opinion, I just think it is really based on different point of views...

Please bear with me while I write my short essay (will take me 5 minutes).

You can judge a car/car brand on:

1- Performance (mostly objective)
2- Tech specs (objective)
3- The overall look (subjective)
4- Price point
5- Overall availability
6- Reliability
7- Brand Loyalty
8- history of the car brand
9- Interior Quality

I cannot speak for BMW drivers, but I can speak for my own love for Audi cars.

For me, I love Audi for its Quattro which is standard in most, if not all of the Audi range in North America (different elsewhere in the world).

I also love the clean lines on the RS5's body and I absolutely adore the new face-lifted LED day-time running lights.

Audi has come a LONG way since the last decade in terms of car reliability and quality.

And, add to the fact that all Canadian Audis are made in Germany (except the Q7 which is made in... Bratislava, Slovakia)... this is a HUGE plus for me.

To the best of my knowledge, other luxury car brands are mostly made in North America nowadays, to save on costs.

Lexus, BMW, Benz have many models made in Canada and the USA.

Quality improved dramatically, and the interior, as always, is very, very good quality and makes you feel like you spent money wisely.

Performance wise, it really depends on WHICH model in the car brand to compare between BMW and Audi.

There are many more BMW cars in Vancouver than Audi cars.

To prove my point, without even pointing to sales numbers, you can just look at the # of posts/views here in this forum for BMW pictures and Audi pictures.

BMW has 10 times the number of viewers.

It looks like BMW has won over the Vancouver crowd successfully, more so than Audi has.

The new 4 series looks to be a stunner and a high-sales model.

I'm hotly anticipating, however, the next A5/S5/RS5 model that will come out late 2015.

So... let the battle begin in the coupe segment between BMW and Audi!

in general im a huge german car fan, Audis BMWs and Mercs all have a special place in my heart as i grow up.
but for me personally i chose my audi over the 3 was because i find it suits my driving style, and i like the feel of the quattro and the way the electronic steering feels.
the bmw 3 series in my opinion is always a bit sharper to drive and a bit faster as well.
For my driving style i like something that's a bit mellow but still be able to pack a punch when i want to have some fun, either in the summer or in the snow.

Lucky that I found a spot on the 4th, beside the 2 997s and the RS2 Avant !!!

I've got the S5 on the brain. I test drove a used one when we were shopping for the TT and I was pretty blown away. Maybe we'll be an all audi household in a year or two!

EDIT: Sorry...didn't realize the age of this thread.

DO IT!

The S5 has a lot of room/options for tuning.

A LOT!
