Audi A5 and BMW 3 Series Coupes - which one should I go for?

I am about to replace my Audi A3 TSI Sportback Quattro with one of above. Prices appear similar. Any recommendation, please?

Both nice cars. Both very good looking. Audi arguably the better looking. But the BMW has better accommodation in the back seats (surprisingly comfortable), and I think a slightly bigger boot. All the BMW engines are chain cam. Only the V6 diesel and Audi petrol engines are.

Spacious boot. Solid build quality. Good to drive on the motorway. Good handling with quattro all-wheel drive.
Stylish four-seater coupe. Plenty of room for four and their luggage. Comes with a great choice of engines including frugal diesels. 335i is outstanding to drive.
