Audi A5 S5 (07-17)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'm happy. It's understated, even more so since I removed all emblems.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
I'm happy...

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes definitely, does everything I need. Outside lane M40 it's handling saved me when vehicle in front literally slammed on their brakes, even though nothing in front of them, the S5 dealt with the sudden change in direction with ease. Scary moment wish I had dash cam.

What are you likely to buy next?
S5 Sportback! Although may sacrifice storage space for 997 S4S or M4 in future.
