Agree Dave, both makes have come a long way in the last 10 years whether made in Korea, Thailand or even China. I remember when Australia had big automotive manufacturing companies and the likes of Nissan, Mitsubishi and Toyota were frowned down upon 40 years ago, a little like Hyundai 20 years ago and Kia 10 years ago, well look at all those conglomerates now, world leaders and Australia now manufactures nothing, First world country with high wages and expectations sliding sideways, hey only my opinion.
We purchased the S5 yesterday after a long test drive and though not up to par with our Merc or Peugeot (sold now in Oz) leaves other brands here for dead as they have followed a European design and feel, but as said if it comes back and bites me I will surely follow up,,,,, as I do.
