Also consider Lake Garda as a possible stop. Salo, Gardone and Sirimione are all very nice towns with each having its own unique charm. Salo is the largest of the three.

Congrats on your purchase. Given a choice between the S4 and E90 335 4 door sedans, I'd make the same choice. But between the S5 and E92 335 coupes, my choice is the E92. Realistically, you can't go...

Too bad it won't be here in the US. For my taste, it's more attractive than the coupe. Sa a number of them in Europe last September. I'd buy one. Next best alternative may be the X1.
