I haven't tracked my S5 yet but driving into corners it's a little counter-intuitive vs RWD: With the center crown gear and electric-actuated LSD, it is pretty sophisticated and you actually have to give it gas to get the car to turn better while cornering.

It's not for everyone but I find the suspension on the S5 a lot better than either of my 335Xis.
