Nope. The car just wasn't that comfortable for me and that instantly negates any performance figures. The fact that ventilated seats aren't available with the beautiful diamond-pattern sport seats was also a deal-breaker.

I wanted to like it. I just couldn't. But I will say that I do like Audi's MMI in the S6. Plus the engine sounds in both cars was phenomenal in my opinion.

But overall there's just something about BMW's interior that resonates with me more. I think our seating is more comfortable and I'm a big fan of the cockpit ergonomics and colors. I found the Audi a bit too jarring at night.
