Audi S5 vs BMW M3

I've been having fun looking at cars I would like to buy. You know, if i somehow found a bag of unmarked bills lying around. Realistically It will be a long long long time before I can ever buy one of these awesome machines. But I wont let that stop me from dreaming. The two cars I seem to have fallen in love with include the Audi S5 Coupe and the BMW M3 Coupe. I really feel like these two cars are a close match. Here's a few basic stats for each car.

Overall I think I would pick the Audi..Just because it's a bit more realistic. Cheaper, better mileage, and still a beast on the street and the track...Sexy and Stunning. What do you think?
