Not a bad comparison. The S5 is clearly more focused on touring, but is still fast as hell.
Props to the M3 for it's performance....

Nicely balanced review.
m3=9-10 on performance, 6-8 on everything else.
S5=8-9 on performance, 8-10 on everything else.

There is not much to fault with both cars. It is just a matter of personal preference i think.

You pay your money you take your choice.

I guess the result would have been different in the wet with the BMW's tricky rear end.

Neither car is slow, but the clincher is how a car makes you feel and IMO the Audi wins hands down every time.

BMW - great engine, but looks not that different from the standard 320d repmobile - would not make me feel special.

Remember both both cars will spent 99.9% of their time operating at less than 50% of their power

I also really struggle with the BMW's image in the UK.

I'll take the S5 in snow or wet anyday!!! If I lived in a different climate it would be closer but the Audi interior blows away the bimmer.
