My 4 previous cars are a 2001 330CI, 2001 M Roadster, 2004 M3, and 2005 330Ci ZHP. I got out of the ZHP and into the A5. For me it was a decision I based on being a bit older. Ride comfort and daily useability in Wisconsin winters is just easier with the A5. I would agree with previous posts reguarding steering feel and feedback, but again, for where I'm at in life, I like the A5 better. Its as sporty as I need, as good looking as I think there is, and the interior is a way nicer place to be.
