    Yes, this is exactly right.

    I have a neighbor who has an S5. We once raced and now he bows to me every time he sees me.

    It weighed only 200 less than the E60M5.
    Dump it in one year and took a MAJOR bath too.

    Wow your car really does look great. I'm glad I went the way I did as I really wanted a v8 S4 until my A4 got the doors blown off it by a 335i.

    Somethings wrong...
    I know that a V8 S5 is not the fastest of cars, but I am lead to believe it is indeed faster than a stock e46 (let alone the convertible).
    My brother has an S5 with AWE cat-back and downpipes, and this is what he did to his friends G37s:



    Yeah its not the fastest of cars, but I dont believe its as slow as in that vid against the M3..call me crazy, but I'd put my money on the s5 in a heads up race between the two.
    I beleive the 1/4 mile time for an S5 is just about even, if not barely quicker, than a stock M3 as well.

    That's the point, it's a heads up race really but if a cab with the top down runs with it... what do you think a coupe will do? The AWD hurts it especially the longer the race goes.

    The S5 just isn't that strong.

    Had another run with the M3, this time top up, and it was the same. I began my pull around 4th again, and this time it was a few seconds longer...I clearly pulled. Will do it again hopefully next weekend with the camera this time, and a coupe on hand.

    Uhhh, the S5 is a great looking car even with it plebian underpinnings. However a cabriolet with a 6-cylinder, with the top down and 19" rims in theory should not be able to hang. if you go back a long way the Audi had a horsepower "bump " when it came out. Audi said it had 333-hp and then restated it had 354-hp. Which means it does not, and that also means that the S54 engine is still a wonderful lump of BMW M ness!!!

    The E46 M3 is still a very highly desirable car and that is just from a visual aspect. The performance of these cars is close but with a V8 it should be "gone". Just get an M3, and call it a day. And if you see an Audi S5, chuckle Click here to enlarge a little and just keep rollin gentleman, oh and ladies too.

    It is just the Audi drivetrain losses and weight that hurt it. This is why crank ratings mean jack, what is getting to the ground?

    I had read somewhere not too long ago that the RS5 dyno's at around 299 to the wheels...around 33% drivetrain loss. Click here to enlarge
