Default I intend to keep mine until an M440i gran coupe is available...

Of course that could be MY 2022, or maybe never. I drive 16,000 km. a year. So in 12 years there could be an S5 Sportback with over 200,000 km. on it in my driveway.

My thoughts exactly. I'm really looking forward to that in 2020/2021.

when I bought my first Audi Q5, I had a 100 miles RT daily commute. It was brutal - so a few months later I moved and cut down the commute to only 25 miles RT. Mileage really racked up on the Q5 FAST. I feel for ya.

My other ride is a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser that I bought off the showroom floor in Nov 2006. Every time I think about selling her, I don't.

I see me keeping the A5 for a while, especially since I have an extended warranty to 75k miles but put less than 5000 miles/yr on her.

Two things are for certain: 1) any reply in this thread is likely just arbitrary speculation 2) it absolutely does not matter.
Amen! Thats coming from someone who's owned a 90 for 28 years
