"The complete package"5.0 starson by dinglehoser
Pros: * Delicious powertrain and chassis combination
* Beautiful interior and exterior
* Great technology
* Equally at home on the track and on the highway
Cons: * Rear track is visually a bit narrow for the car
* Sashless windows cause a small amount of noise when chassis is torqued (e.g., over offset bumps)
Summary: The 2013 S5 coupe with the 3.0T (T stands for thupercharged!) is pretty much the perfect combination of civility, handling, performance, practicality (if you can deal with two doors), and luxury. Exceptional handling balance with the optional sports rear differential, an uncannily smooth ride given the handling capability, endless, linear power and a great engine sound. Both the interior and exterior are flawless in execution and design, at least to my personal taste. I've never derived this much joy from a vehicle in my life, and I've had a few (dozen).
(Incidentally, in response to a previous review, I haven't found the S5's Bluetooth HF setup to be any worse or better than any other car I've had or used. They're all imperfect. Besides, if that's your benchmark for the quality of a vehicle, maybe something like an ES350, Camry or Accord would have been a better fit for you.)
Thanks for your submission!
