"Nice to have CLS quality and power for a price of an E"5.0 starson by soooma2006
Pros: 1. Price
2. Mars Red beauty
4. Gas mileage is almost the same as my previous Acure TL 3.7 V6 !!
5. The way people receive Mercedes is different than all other brands :)
7. AMG Pack.
11. 0-60 in 4.7 s
Cons: 1. No bluetooth Audio streaming, I had to buy 298$ plus tax MB accessory to get it to work, and still my Acura did better!
2. Console could've looked better somehow, or it may be me because I am used to how beautiful the Audi Q7
3. Only 18" wheels
Summary: Though I am a big big big fan of Audi and S5 should've for sure won my heart BUT :)
1. I have a Q7 and couldn't imagine have two identical cabins which is the problem with all Audis now, except for the new A8
2. New model compared to the S5 which is aging due for a redesign this year probably
3. Harsh S5 ride when I have back problems :(
4. Sun Roof only sildes up and down only in Audi S5 a 100% deal breaker for me in any CAR,, think again Audi you just lost another customer!!
5. The pillarless design is definitely a plus and as you see when MB is trying to open the cabin of this coupe removing the B pillars, and added panoramic sunroof standard on all and of course the sun roof open as it makes sense that is should do!!!! When Audi S5 coupe does believe that you should feel like you are in a CELL or a dungeon!!! But again I could've gone for the S5 Cabriolet but then I have to be hit with a new model around the corner anytime this year :(,,,, Don't get me wrong I love Audi S5,, I see a lot these days, especially that it gets confused with the A5 to the naked unexperienced eye when this E coupe is rare even the E350 which is the cheaper model.
6. Shift paddles are flawless though tiny :(
7. Mars Red for free :)
8. AMG package is a nice additions to the front bumper
9. Steering wheel with wood feels awesome never felt like this before
10. I hate the fact that there is no 4Matic of this car
11. 0-60 mpg in just 4.7 sec check the C & D on this car!!
12. I don't like that the odometer is only 160 when S5 200 mph though both are electronically limited but the feeling and the psyche :)
13. Access to the rear seat is made easy via electric seat handle!
14. The front and the back both look really beautiful and the LED looks awesome
15. I don't like that it will depreciate 50% in 3 years :) so not gonna keep it that long I guess :(
16. The wide rear tire 255
17. Come on Mercedes there should be 19" wheel for this Beautiful care, If I had these on my Acura which I really kinda liked and hated at the same time due to looks but harsh ride,,, but I am sure this Benz if you put 20" on it won't be as harsh as Acura TL SHAWD with 19"
18. The Navigation is really nice I may safely say better than my Acura TL-SHAWD 09
19. Nice to have no similar car in the car lot wherever you go, at least till now :)
20. Quality of interiors
21. Harman Kardon,,, is really awesome,,, and I can tell because my Ex :) TL-SHAWD used to have ELS which won place #1 in 2009 amongst most luxury cars,, and it was really that good,,, Audi Bose was inferior for sure,,, but this Harman Kardon is something in between,,, not as good still as ELS but still better than Bose Premium addition!!
22. How the 7 speeds or gears work,,, smooth and you will notice that the RPM almost goes up and down by 500 RPM between 3000 and 4000 for instance when you push midway on the gas,,, you will for sure feel something is weird yet in a good way with this transmission,, and this one wins over Acura Hands down which had 5 gears only,,, come on Acura!!!!! Even lexus had 8 gears in some of its cars!!!
23. I don't like the lack of colored screen near the odometer like Audi Q7 it is really nice to have this,,,I will be honest with you guys,, I am pretty sure that one of the New Audis will win me again soon but not A6 2012 because I hate the back!! REally I started noticing that Audi doesn't know what to do with their rear ends ;) any more though S5 looks ok,, and A8 a little ok,, but A4 and A6 badddddd and even my Q7 is mediocre at best :(
25. I had to buy 298 $ accessory to get it to stream bluetooth audio for me :( should be standard for sure!!!
26. I like that fact that Mercedes Coupe 1996 was few thousand dollars more expensive than this one now!!!! Good job Mercedes
27. The adaptive headlight though I don't feel the High Beam Assist is working for me because I got yelled at by many because it is not dimming as it should on high beams!! Am i missing something!!
28. The fact that it is the safest car in its class with Presafe goodies
29. 0.24 CD makes it the most aerodynamically efficient car in the whole world!
30. One of the websites tested it with Maserati and Jaguar and Porsche and they commented that they were surprised that it could keep up with those except for at least 20K less than any of 'em!!!
I can say a lot more than this,,,
I hope I made the right choice,,, waiting for your comments on my review guys!!
Thanks for your submission!
