Cheers guys, wasn't much of a decision to make really. Didn't like driving the new M3 price tag was 10k more when I applied my spec. Caymen S was the other choice and wasn't practical so this was the obvious choice. Looking forward to joining the Audi boys....Haven't owned an Audi before..

Welcome Ian, you will not be disappointed with your choice. I hope this site keeps you occupied during your wait as it certainly did for me.Not long to wait though only 2 months.

Ian,

My last 2 cars have been BMW's, I fancied a change and didn't fancy paying £55k for what seemed to be a boring car to drive, perhaps it was just me it just didn't appeal anymore. Had my mind set on an S5 since early last year and driving it confirmed the decision that I had pretty much already made just by looking at the car.

It may not be as quick as my current M but the fun factor is greater I think, it doesn't scream at you as much as the E46 M but it's a fun, realaxing reasonablly fast drive which suits me.

Thanks again for your welcome, I'm familiar with forums and how they work as I run a couple myself and the people that post on the forum are the people that make the forum what it is..:D :D
