What’s oppo’s opinions on this car and engine? Whenever I see the 5 and 7 series Audi’s on the road I always find I admire the way they look. I’ve also found that by the time I need a new car, I could probably afford a manual S5 from roughly ~2010 (maybe newer, who knows when I’ll be in the market). Good idea?

edit: I should add that to my delight it ticks quite a few of my boxes: V8, manual, AWD. I had no idea the S5 was available with all these features as well as starting to approach semi-reasonable prices.
