    Depends on what you want from the car? The S5 is more Hotrod than out and out sports car, it certainly won't go round corners anywhere near what an S3 can, but it sounds great(especially with a Milltek fitted!) and looks good! Point to point machine, I'd go for S3, for showing everyone that you're doing pretty well, S5.

    In my opinion.

    S3 is £260 to tax, S5 is £445 also, I'd personally go for B7 RS4 with the extra 65bhp from the same engine!

    335i with a remap would probably keep up with an M3, Evo9 doesn't really have the same image as Audi/BMW, but point to point driving, nothing's going to touch it, running costs are scarily high also with the Evo!

    Id rather have the s5 over s3 personally, both are quite hard to distinguish from their a3 a5 counterparts though
