You've picked 2 different categories of cars. A Coupe and a Hatch.

I've never owned a Audi but have come close many times as recent as last month. I've test driven the S5, S4 and RS6 Sedan. In terms of styling and interior, Audi comes out a winner. Build quality is also very good. Power figures are pretty suspect though. We've put the S5 on a dyno and the HP figures are not what's been advertised. In terms of driving experience, I find Audis less engaging and enjoyable to drive compared to the Bimmers. Steering feedback is very muted. I think Audi's direction towards luxury sports sedan and coupes is just that. They've taken the fun and engagement out of owning a sports model.

Depending on what you're looking for in a car, there's many comparable models from other marques you can test drive before making a decision. For example BMW 335 vs S5. BMW 130 Hatch vs S4 vs VW Sirocco.

I need boot that can put 2 golf bags .... the S5, A5 is coupe and the new S4 is a 4 door ...
i also looking at the new E300 or E250 coupe but i guess 4 doors more practical ...
BMW ... i used them before from 323 to 735 ... so giving othe marques a try

Thanks for your feedback ...

The new E has a nice agressive front but the rear looks like a Hyundai Sonata. I tried the C63AMG, loads of power and torque but the boot is pathetic.

S5/A5 is really sexy. If power is not at the top of your list, then i'd say go for the A5. Otherwise S5 is the cheapest V8 you can buy in the market. Premium can even install the MTM supercharger kit for you if you need that extra power.

Just don't buy a Proton.

On a more serious note, my colleague has the A5 (2 door). Very very nice. I think the 4 door is coming out soon. From what I've heard, it performs very well.
