Title: 2008 S5
Post by: A4play on October 22, 2007, 08:32:44 PM
so my buddy in MA, just took delivery of his 2008 S5 the other day. he was also told by Audi that he was officially the first person in America to take delivery of one of these... I am so jealous... thats also his Mini right behind it... and the S5 parked in front of Fenway at Game 7

Did you see the arse pics of the S5 in my R8 thread? I got to see it up close and personal and wasn't impressed. I'm a wicked huge fan of the new Audi front end, but the rest of the car looks like a Mercedes/BMW cross and I don't like the curves or lines at all.

The S5 looks almost identical to the 335i

I did get to see pictures of the rear end and its not bad looking, but I'm not impressed, I think it doesnt match the rest of the car

I got to drive one through an auto-x course at Infinion raceway last week. Pretty cool car. Just looks so much like a Chevy Monte Carlo SS.

hmmmm, I totally disagree with that comparo...I think they look NOTHING alike, outside of being 2 door coupes, etc.

The seats are beautifully shaped and countoured, I could fondle it all day long!

It doesn't look anything like a Monte Carlo.
Though I think the side windows looks a bit like a 1996 Chrysler Sebring Coupe:

I really like the styling.  The only design fault is that I think it looks a bit too chunky at certain angles, but I'm sure like most Audis the syling will age gracefully.

I only came up with that conclusion after seeing them in person.  From certain angles......Monte Carlo.  Other angles, not at all alike.

I think I have to reserve judgment until I see it in person, but in pictures, it is still damn sexy.
