Thanks! I can't wait...it should arrive late this month or early December (went into production 2 weeks ago). There are things I really like about Audi and some things I don't. They seem to be neutering all of their performance vehicles (S and to some extent RS). BMW and Mercedes seem to be beating them to the punch, although I do still like their interior and exterior designs.

Thanks! And yes it certainly has been a revolving car showroom on my driveway over the past year (much to the dismay of my wife) lol. Crossing my fingers that the M340i will be my last for a few years at least.

For various reasons I've been in 4 different cars in the past year...this will be 5!

The last one was a keeper (2019 Audi S5 Sportback) but someone not paying attention hit me and the car was written off. Only 700 miles on it! Figured I was cursed with Audi so I'm moving on to my first BMW. Looking forward to it!

Here's a list of the last few cars.

2019 Audi S5 Sportback
2019 Audi S4
2018 Audi S5 Coupe
2018 Lexus IS350 F Sport AWD
Hello fellow AudiWorld member! I'm thinking about following in your footsteps and trading in my S5 Sportback for a M340i. Let's see how my negotiations go with my local BMW dealer.
Congrats on the new car!

Thanks! I think you will be very happy with the M340i. The sportback looks better (subjective but in my opinion anyways) but the performance is night and day. I didn't realize how bad the initial throttle/transmission lag was with the S4/5 cars until I drove the M340i.

Yup it's the transmission lag that has pushed me to trade it in after only 15 months. I will be taking a hit as it is a leased car but I just can't take it anymore. Otherwise the car is almost perfect.

Same. Mine was totalled but if it wasn't for the lag I would have found another S5 Sportback replacement and called it a day. It was literally the only thing that I hated about it, everything else was amazing! I thought about an RS5 Sportback but there isn't enough performance difference between it and the M340i given the $25-30k price difference in Canada.
