Came home with a glacier white 2015 Audi SQ5. Pretty cool vehicle. I went back and forth between 535 and A6 3 years ago and picked BMW. This time nod went to Audi. It's good to have one of each!

Actually the standard 3.0 has the supercharged gasoline v6. The A6 3.0 has the same engine but more hp, and the S4 and Sq5 have same basic engine but with even more hp.

I recently took my 535i into dealership for service and they did a software update and the herky jerky takeoff is gone. Acceleration from a stop is smooth and linear. It was a pleasant surprise!
