    S5 vs RS4

    Hi guys, I've not been on here for a while due to selling my A4 and driving company cars ever since. I'm now looking at spending up to £20k on a car early next year and I'm torn between the S5 and the RS4, I wondered if you guys could shed some light on this for me.

    its not so much about how they look it's more about running costs and smiles per miles.

    i only do 26 miles per day on my commute so petrol is not too big an issue hence looking at V8's, I suppose what I'm trying to decide is:

    do I get around an 08 plate S5 and have a nice looking, quick, fun car or do I get around an 06 RS4 and have a car that's a little older but more powerful, more fun and more expensive to run?

    tia.

    I had an M5 and tbh i would be looking at the RS4. These cars are not bought for you worrying about pence per mile if so don't go there. Just my tupence worth mate from experiance.

    I had the same dilemma until yesterday when I picked up mine...

    The 4s look a little dated to me and the 5s are stunning so I went for the S5.

    It doesn't feel as quick as my tuned s3 but wow.... What a car... I love it and do t care that it feels slightly slower.
