    Agree, but I don't like tuning cars as it affects the warranty, would much rather just keep standard.

    For me, the RS5 is a stunning looking car, and is the main reason I bought it and not really for any performance gains (although 3rd gear in this is EPIC). I did love the RS3 but after seeing a lot of the new A3's about it's starting to look a bit dated, plus (where I live at least) it got all the attention of the chavs and my Wife thought it looked too Hafords/boy racer stylee

    The exhaust is a personal thing, mine has the sports exhaust, and hearing my Dad drive off in it the other day in "Dynamic" mode it sounded a lot better than my B7 RS4 ever did! Again, I wouldn't fork out £3k for a Caprisco or whatever exhaust, far too noisy for me!

    Did you not change the exhaust on your RS4?

    I took my mate up from the West Midlands to Liverpool Audi last week in my RS3 to collect his RS5 - previous owner one Steven Gerrard Esq. It was a few months old, Stevie G had part exed it for an RS5 cabriolet. He's a big Audi fan apparently. It was Suzuka grey with a nice big 'Premiership footballer' spec. We had a good compare on the way back with the two cars. Off the line I would say the RS3 would just shade it, but when we were blasting back down the M6 there was nothing in it at all - from any speed side by side etc. I love the way the RS5 looks and I do like the more up to date interior and the V8 howl, but that doesn't mean I don't like my RS3 - I do. Is the RS5 worth 20 odd grand more than the RS3? I would have to say no as it's no quicker, but I would say that as I drive an RS3...

    The one and only mate

    I looked at that RS5 in Liverpool, couldn't justify the extra £16k for the slight revisions, plus now you have told me who owned it previously I'm really glad I didn't (being a City fan )

    Totally with you re the power, they are nigh on exactly the same, but I would say from 60 upwards on an airstrip the RS5 would pull. I did see a few vids on YouTube a while back by M5 board but they have since been removed.......
