    welcome mate
    RS6 gr gr gr great choice mate, I love mine
    Always wanted one and now took the plunge and got one

    The good points
    1.Fast as hell!! 450bhp standard easy to tune 500bhp+++
    2.Sounds great
    3.Looks great
    4.Can drive is sensiable if you want
    5.No one really knows what it is Wolf in Sheeps Clothing

    Bad points
    1.Still looking(Any excuse to run to the shops!!)
    only thing is get yourself a nectar or tesco club card and watch the points go up.

    Nice choice mate!
    Only thing is the silver leather marks easy, the blue from your jeans
    All the light colours just stain real easy and the colour wears off not too bad on the recaros but just something to out for.

    If you get it use a leather treat meant on it, I just had my car Zymoled today and it looks great black would look even better, and there leather treatment is very good!

    Well good luck if you go for it and shame on you if you don't you won't be dissapointed

    How much they asking if you don't mind me asking anad what is the mileage on it??

    Good price!
    Did you get warranty with it?? only get the Audi one, Not sure if you said you were getting from main dealer or not!!!
    They all normally got the same spec only diff is the carbon trim sunroof multi function steering wheel and drilled brakes, all other toys are standard.
    Get some pics up once you get it!

    You got a deal, I paid the same for mine with 32K on the clock but I bought mine at trade, but then I found out it had 2k of prep at another dealer!!

    The brakes are mega money but can be sourced else where alot cheaper for the same thing there are guys on here that can help in that dept!

    Where in the world are you??
