Is there anything out there other than renders? I dont see anything other than speculation and photoshopped pics based off the c205 sedan so far.

Who cares? I suppose if you're convinced you have to have what everyone else thinks is "the best", then I guess it would be significant. Of course they'll be competitors, but they're not BMWs and will not have an inline-6 or any of the things that make BMW unique among the wannabes.

A5 no, S5 yes.
C400 Hell no.

The next gen A4 spy shot looks REALLY REALLY promising.

Looking forward to seeing the S4/S5. I was personally highly considering the S4 when shopping.

Can't wait to see the S4/S5. It will most likely be my next car after my 428i.

History will repeat itself. They will be great cars, no doubt. But replacement for a bimmer, I think not. Keep it alive fellas ...

Interior and luxury wise, most would say MB has taken and held the cake for quite some time, although I still prefer BMW's simpler and sport oriented interior.

Price to performance wise, I'd say Audi is already on BMW's level. If it wasn't a rebadged VW with mandated Quattro, I'd consider Audi, since I'm a sucker for RWD. Also their terrible residuals kill Audi's lease deals.

And as you've heard, C&D has knocked the 3 series off of their top 10 cars for the first time in a long time.

Don't get me wrong, I love BMW, and my F30, but I think your perspective represents the attitude of the management at BMW, and it's somewhat frightening.

the s-class and rs-class audis are nice. saw an RS5 the other day and it looks good. can't get over the fact an audi is a grown-up vw with a different badge. i'm not going into detail about vw's, but let's keep it at i really don't like them.
