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.

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

Enjoy.

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.

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
