    My car

    I drove my mate's 3.0 petrol.

    I am looking to purchase a coupe. I want expensive feel and look, well buit, something that if I turned up outside the Ritz they would open the door and park it, but also something that when i'm at my son's football match does not make me look like i'm a tart. Yet again, if I go to Ascot races I will not look out of place.

    These cars are not cheep, so i'm taking my time at the starting paddock and looking at the form in detail.

    Audi A5 drove well. Yes I know what you all mean - it's not as hard a ride as the BMW. But then I don't mind a little comfort for my money. The ride is firm without being hard and I think that sums the car up and what Audi are aiming for in the market. It all looks very comfortable inside, with no suprises (but then I don`t like suprises).

    It has two rear seats that are actually seats (no I would not put my kids in it every day). I would use these to carry others once in a while.

    All in all it is an expensive treat of a car. It's very well put together and everything seemed like it would last. I think it's quite practical (for a coupe) and I rate this car. I think it ticks most of my boxes. For me this one is at the starter's gate.

    My car

    Niels, it sounds like you want a TT, not an A5. It's a stunning piece of engineering and I find it hard to fault on any count.

    In normal human fashion, we try to find spmething wrong just to have an opinion but for he first time in over 20 years of driving, Audi has come up with a dream machine.

    If you want back seats, buy an A4 or A6; if you want the ability to seat four on the odd occasion, get the A5. You certainly will not be disappointed.

    My only suggestion would be to have more colour choices. The car itself is almost faultless.

    My car

    I test drove this car last Saturday (28/07/07). I currently own an A4, and the build quality of this A5 is typical Audi - sky-high.

    The engine is ultra-flexible, with a fabulous gear change and well-weighted clutch, and more torque than I have experienced so far from a 3.0 diesel.

    The body design is gorgeous, and nearly made me order the car there and then, except - the interior is dark and looming. I think it would be very depressing if you order the wrong colour.

    The rear seating room is nothing but a joke. Why Audi did not go for a two seater, or cut some room from the cavernous boot in favour of more rear room is beyond me.

    The seating and dark atmosphere inside put me off, and although I may still buy one, it has made me think twice.

    However, apart from the inside, it's a beautiful car, and one to be seen in.
