    Audi S5 or BMW M3

    I've just got a great job and plan to trade in my 2009 mini cooper for either an Audi S5 or BMW M3, wanted to see everyone's opinion on this.

    I'm a little bit biased since I own an M3, but I'd still take an M3 over the S5. The S5 is awesome though and very similar in feel to the e9x M3s. They're such close cars, see if you can test drive both of them and pick based on which one you like the best. Unless you have a preference for one brand over the other its going to be hard to make a decision without test driving them.

    M3 is definitely more performance than luxury, while S5 is more luxury than performance

    The best thing is to test drive both and see which one makes you happier

    The S5 is way sexier I think.

    yeah, I love audi's day time lights

    also, the stand isn't bad either.

    If I was fortunate enough to be able to choose between the 2 cars, I would take the S5, I could use the AWD in northeast, love the styling, and it's rarer in this area

    yes. My wife wants to get an a5 when we end up getting her another car. I used to see them frequently enough in Ohio, but I don't know if I've seen one at all here in Tennessee. There are 3 M3's in my complex alone.

    I agree with some of the other people. Go drive them. It would be a tough call for me, because I'm an Audi fanboy and they design some of the best cars out there... but based on performance alone I'd go M3. Then again each car has its ups and downs so just forget it and go drive the cars. S5 is going to be much roomier for you up front, btw, but you can get the m3 in four door (actually not any worse than the coupe, i would actually prefer sedan)

    Wow that really is a tough decision, definitely test drive each one and get the one you like more in the end.



    I would go with the S5 for the AWD. Only M3 I'd care to own is the e36 model.

    If you got the money, I don't think you can go wrong with either car.

    Both are gorgeous, fast and handle great.

    I love both cars but I'd take the S5 without a doubt. I think it's much sexier than the E9x

    If you want a luxury mobile with a phenomenal interior and a soft, calm drive go for the S5.

    If you want a hardcore machine designed purely to go fast with the luxury amenities taking a back seat, buy the M3.

    Performance-wise they are pretty similar, but the M3 just FEELS so much tighter and more responsive. I'd rather drive the M3 any day, but I could see how someone would rather have something a little softer and safer on a daily basis.

    Like everyone else said, DRIVE THEM.

    My cousin has an S5, which he loves. Before that, he had a bmw 335i (not the same as the m3 obviously, but not lightyears off) and he says the audi is a million times better. Having ridden in both the audi is the better car of those two, not sure about the m3.

    for me it would come down to the type of driving I would be doing. If I was gonna be hitting traffic and generally not able to drive super aggressive I would go for the s5 because of the luxury and smoothness. If I had open road I would get the M3...but you can't really lose either way so like everyone said...just drive them.

    ahha i struggle with this question too since i'm def. gonna be in the market for one in a few hopefullly short years.

    i'd have to go for the S5 only because of that AWD... in the northeast the weather sucks so bad you just can't be driving an m3 around in the snow and i'll probably be driving every day to get to work.


    but again, test drive! but if weather is a factor then the AWD is definitely something to consider.

    if it weren't for the weather, i'd buy the m3 without hesitation or regret, it's my first dream car

    I would have to say M3. Even though I love the dubs m3 is the ultimate machine. Sexier too.
