Those are the base prices. When you factor in that BMW likes to discount and Audi hates discounting, there's a pretty big price difference between the 2 cars.
Yeah, I know those are the base prices. I was talking about comparably equipped cars. Most people will want M-sport and Dynamic Handling on their 550i. S6 already comes with Audi's version on M-sport and Dynamic Handling as standard equipment.

As for discounting, you can get 5% off MSRP on a typical Audi. You can do a little better with BMW but it's not going to be a huge difference. Leasing is a totally different matter, however. BMW's lease rates tend to be much more attractive.
