Which one does everyone think is better in looks wise


Audi s5 facelift or Audi rs5 pre facelift


I have the option of getting one just before my 22nd birthday, so just trying to make my mind up.

Looks wise the facelift s5 nicer looking led lights mean looking . You can,t rule out the performance advantage of the rs5 ,If I had the choice tho "newer is best"...Some people have all the luck:blahblah1:

S5 simply because of the tuning potential and more understated looks yet the potential to be a RS5 killer.

Thanks everyone!


Still in two minds, going for a test drive next week in both cars, will report back on how it goes!

S5 if it's the 3.0t as it will keep up with the RS with a stage 1 remap. RS5 will probably need a carbon clean by now (if it's a pre-facelift) and will be down on power.

Yes I'm leaning towards s5 but been seeing quite a few about recently, and the a5 s line looks the same just different diffuser and alu wing mirrors.

RS5 pre facelift looks better imo. Plus you get to have a real RS car. Yes, you can get similar power with S5 and a remap, but also the suspension is different, etc. and won't match the RS5.

The real key with these supercharged engines is changing the pulley and then mapping. The S4 goes from around 333 to the best part of 500! The midrange in a 'S' forced induction car is always gonna kill the RS4 or 5.
