S5 is not on the level of the other 3. The S5 is a 335i competitor.

Agree on the S5 point.

Love the c63 although I'm no big Merc fan.
Brutal sound, power is good while beeing somewhat discreet.

I'd go for the C63 before the M3, the M3 goes around a track better but for me that doesn't cut it.

The C63 is just nice all around.

I don't know about you but my ORIGINAL tires held up for 26,500 miles. If all you're hurt about is the tire warranty then I think you should be in a C63 AMG. I've come from the tuned 335i and I didn't know what all this commotion on the M3 was about till my first week of ownership. Do i miss my vishnu tuned 335i? NO SIR!!! This is the first car I have ever thought about keeping beyond pay off.

Audi's interior shits all over BMW's. BMW does have a very functional interior.

Our family just bought an A4, and the interior is very well put together. Built with comfort and real convience in mind. Unlike our useless cup holders by the vents.


My e92 interior looks like crap compared to the Audi.

...But the BMW does look nicer from the outside...

S5. I believe is not a 335i competitor you're comparing a v8 engine with more horsepower than the 335i and the price range is totally range

its actually a direct competitor to the 335i, regardless of engine size of HP produced.
A5=328i
S5= 335i
upcoming RS5= M3

i think its clear at this point that BMW proved you don't need to be making the most HP to win.

+1 RS5 is up against the M3 man, not the S5.
Audi interiors = hard to beat.

From that list, I'd buy it in this order:

C63, M3, S5, ISF

The new BMW interiors will beat the Audi interiors. Look at 7 F01, 5 GT F07, 5 F10, X1 E84, Z4 E89 and the coming ones.
