Torque is where it is at.
A5 looks are the best IMO.
I have a 335 e90 because of car seats, but otherwise I would look at an A5.
I do not like the looks of the Audi sedans IMO.
well they told you to get the 2.0 because it is turbo'ed and fairly easy to tune.
you do know that the 335 is not a competitor to an A5? rather the 328's are.
A5 start at 38G, while 335's start at 41-2. 328's are around 34.
For 38 thousand dollars, you get 211 hp with a HUGE disappointment in performance (straight line) 6.4 seconds 0-60(manual) 6.7 for auto. Which is exactly the same for the 328. with less torque but more power and for less money.
a5 is a high priced slow car. for almost 40 thousand dollars i would like it to be at least faster then a accord v6.
S5 aint that great either. 53 grand??? 0-60 is the same as our cars. i know that 335i's can amount to 50k or more but i dont see our cars as a different class then the normal line up. a 335i(non-is) is a compeptitor to an s5. i feel that the 335is CAN compete against the RS5. even being underpowered by 100hp+
