Well after driving the S for 5months I just felt it didn't feel as fast as I thought it was. So since I wanted an IS since the 300 came out years ago I figured it was the time to do it. I wanted an 09 but I could only get it in black, and since I didn't want black I settled for a silver 08. The dealer tried talking me out of the 09 by saying it 5k over sticker. I think they were bluffing but since I didn't want black it didn't matter. Everyone at the dealer thought I was crazy to turn in my audi but what they didn't know was that the IS was my dream car as wee little lad playing grand turismo. Anyway I'm 26 now and figured it was time to step it up. I almost bought an RS4 before the S5 but I gotta say im all now!!! Can't wait to start doing some minor mods and installing my satellite receiver. Also the dealer tried giving me the card of someone who she said could unlock my DVD player while driving and the ability to use my nav while driving. I told her I'd get on the forum and start making friends who would do it for free or for pretty cheap. I have a VAG COM cable for the audi but haven't done the research as to what I need to get my electronic systems unlocked. Did I make a mistake by not going for an 09?
