Beautifully done luxury sports car by Brandon, Loma Linda, CA on 02/26/2013. Trim: 2013 Audi S5 3.0T Premium Plus Coupe quattro S tronic, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It's an absolutely beautiful car. I've owned my 2013 Audi S5 since June of last year (the first week they were available). Everything about this car is pleasing to the eye. The 3.0 supercharged engine delivers plenty of performance and gives a nice little growl when you step on it in sports mode. The ride is quiet and smooth and the gas milage increase is a plus over the old V8.
Cons: My only issues with this car is that occasionally the volume control won't register and I can only use my steering wheel control. So it seems that it may not be getting the power it needs all the time. I've yet to bring it up to Audi, because I forgot when I took it in for my first check up. Also, depending on where you are setting at on RPMs the launch isn't always perfect and may seem sluggish while the supercharged engine catches up. More often than not though, I get what I ask for when I punch it so I wouldn't really hold it against the car. I do wish they pushed the overall HP to at least 350, but 333 is just fine.
Overall review: I love this car. Call me bias, because I may be, but I've wanted an Audi for a loooong time. In the past I drove a 2011 A5 which I loved, but was always eyeing this car. Absolutely gorgeous with great performance and amazing comfortability. The tech inside this vehicle is great and the MMI interface is a lot easier to navigate them most give it credit for. I would recommend this car all day long... though I like being the only S5 out there right now where I live. Turns more heads that way.
