very nice...xdrive?

I know you're still breaking in the engine, but I'd like to know how it compares to the S5 supercharged V6.

We'll I can say this much the Audi handle better but that is also cause the Audi has Quattro I imagine if my bmw had xdrive it would be a better handling car
As for speed I really can't figure out which car is faster from lower speeds the audi is a tad bit quicker but after 60 the BMW is faster then my S5

The S5 does have 33 more rated hp plus a supercharger with zero lag which would make it quicker to 60. In fact, MT tested both the 435i RWD and the S4 (same powerplant as S5 as you know). The BMW hit 60 in 4.8 and the S4 hit it in 4.4. They have yet to test an xdrive model.

What I find interesting and awesome is the fact you say the 435 feels faster at higher speeds. BMW underrates their engine outputs and dynos consistently prove that. I think the N55 motor is making substantially more power than advertised. I'm still getting the PPK or jb4 though.

Congrats on a fine machine. I took delivery on one exactly the same, xDrive, except mine has 3 pedals.

Enjoy.

Regarding the 435xi vs an s5 I can say that they are almost even. I recently raced a friends 2014 s5 (in Mexico of course) and the 435 is definitely faster at pulls. Considering I have the ppk, this is how it turned out. From a start he had around a foot length advantage because of his launch control and lack of supercharger lag. I didn't use the launch control feature as I had not driven the required amount to activate it. But when we approached 80kph I began to pull on him and I passed him at 120. Rwd models will have an easier time beating an s5 from pulls. Note: both were stock but the 435 has the ppk and MPE.

Awesome to hear! I'd imagine a ppk xdrive using launch control would be like a slingshot off the line.
