I love the stance of the bimmer, and the side profile, it really looks aggressive. But the new refreshed 8.5 S4 just has such a nasty front end with the "devil eyes". But the stance/lines on the B8/B8.5 are much improved from the B7

(not mine for the record)

That is a nice looking ride for sure. Great color. The changes are not dramatic at all but still looks good and it is an upgrade from the B7.

Resale on the S4 is goooood, NY times had a dealer with a '10 S4 25k miles for like $44k CPO. What was that new, $58k depending on options? That's crazy good. I would think a similar E90 335 M-Sport would be CPO'd at $36k TOPS.

Yea, lots of people agree with you. Bimmer's look awesome with angle eyes too, just wish for sake of other motorists they would stop selling them w/o lighting packages (320 is gonna make it worse)...

Love those wheels too. Almost put them on my CC for the OEM+ look.

Could be anywhere from 48k to 60k with the ability to get them around invoice + 1k being reasonable. There aren't as many incentives with Audi as BMW - although financing rates tend to be better. You have to also consider that the e90 is a generation out.

That's the titanium package right? Looks good with the Estoril blue

i think look wise:
3-series is order of magnitutes better than the a4 - be it a e90 or a f30
The a4 just looks underdone, no real presence at all. the a5 is another story altogether, and I consider it the most beautiful car in its segment (that includes c-coupe, 3-coupe). Looks is a controversial matter, so I dont not understand people buying the a4's, nor would I insult their cars in any way.

Mechanically, bmws are more refined, more comfortable and in general just drive better, not to mention they are far less thirsty compared to their audi counterpart.. I think Audi concentrates too much on straight-line performance, and lags behind in almost every other aspect..

No, they don't offer that yet, looks like he put on RS5 reps. Right about the color, it's a lot darker than EBII on the M-Sport, but if you catch it in the right light it's gorgeous. I have Monsoon Gray - definitely more boring

This might be closer to EBII...although I think you need to custom order it

People can hate on me all they want, but I would take that over a 335. That's after I put my bad VAG reliability experience aside.

Sprint Blue?

Is that their new version of Sprint Blue? It doesn't look as good on the road as ANY of BMWs blues, in my opinion. I see one frequently around here. I like that Monsoon color a LOT better.

It's too damn smurfy for me.

audi configurator

Man, I was playing on their configurator and blew past 60g pretty quickly. As an aside, their web site usability isn't great.

That B8.5 S4 looks like Nogaro Blue which I have loved since the B5 which was out in about '00.

The SQ5's color is better on the Audi lMO. I just think the S4s color reminds me more of BMW than Audi, it's still nice though.

The one I linked is a custom order Spirit Blue I found on AZ. Was just demonstrating that the S4 can look pretty aggressive when you look at it from the right angle. It's a little more understated, but I personally like that. Not to say that the F30 doesn't look great, but I don't think one blows the other out of the water - likewise with interior, which I think is nicer finish and materials in the audi but more functional in the F30.

I saw the SQ5 at the Detroit auto show and personally I don't understand why you'd spend that kind of $$$ on an SUV. Would much prefer one of the station wagons - same practicality with handling closer to a sports car - E63 AMG Estate anyone??
