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.

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

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.

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

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