Bmw 335is vs Audi s5

Hey Guys,

I recently placed an order for a 2013 335is, i know its main rival is the new audi S5 (not the V8 but the 3.0 supercharged V6).

I've tried to search around the internet on which one is faster on a straight line and just an overall better performance car, Im leaning towards the BMW to win in performance against this one, but idk..

what are your opinions?

i think a 335i is faster than both the v8 and v6

not completely sure though

i'd bet it's definitely faster than the v8

the 335is should prob beat the v6

Yea i did order DCT, even though i was heavily criticized for not getting the manual transmission.

Overall im extremely happy with my choice the only problem is the waiting lol, I'm sure this happened to everyone who placed a customer order, all you want to do is search info about your car.

I have found the majority of people that taunt others for getting a DCT over an MT are those who never owned a DCT car in their life and tend to classify the DCT with an AT.

Not sure why you were criticized for getting the DCT over 6MT. It's faster than the 6MT and it sounds like you want it to be fast in a straight line. Enjoy your purchase!

Did a friendly run with an s5 from a stop light a few days ago, no cars around and I was a car length ahead up to 70 and then slowed down. S5 is a nice pretty car over all.

^+1 not a very good video of the street race. I think the S5 let off a bit, there's no way the 335i could pull up on it so fast, even tuned. I'm not saying a 335i is slower but it's just not a good video. BUT if you watch the track video, the S5 clearly has the advantage on the straits but the BMW has advantage in the corners

I have to say I know the 335i is faster through 3rd gear. I have the ppk package in my 335i (giving me 320 hp). Had an S5 try to race me on a merge, and can tell you I caught up as I got to the end of 3rd gear.

Confirmed on roadandtrack.com - S5 changes into 4th at 95, 335 doesn't redline in 3rd until 107

However, I must say that I think the v8 S5 I went up against would have the edge after that

heyyyuh... I liked my A4... until I drove a 335

Unfortunately I didn't share the same happy memory since the AoA service tech took care of that for me.

That's actually a regular A5 btw.

But the 335i should be able to beat both of them either way. The S5 is a really heavy car.

Great choice on the car! :thump:

EDIT: It is an S5. Didn't see the pipes on the other side

No the 335is has overboost with 370lb/ft tq for certain moments. Neither of the ppk's have this. Also I believe the iS has a beefed up flywheel and better cooling.
