To the OP, great summary. Nice to hear from happy owners past the initial ownership stage.
My last car was a C7 A6, although I do like the S6, its too similar to the A6 for me to consider it. Another thing to consider is price, a typical S6 is over $80K with very little room for negociation. At that price, its more of a car one would cross shop with the 550 than the 535.

Like someone have already said, its fast enough and propel the car effortlessly, but when it want a little extra, its there, but not a lot of it. My last car, the A6 was a bit quicker both in the city and on the highway. If power was my top priority, I would not have bought the 535, but it is not and the 535 does many other things better than the A6. I am very happy with 5 series so far and this forum is like a added bonus, much better than the Audi forums
