Hi all, recently found this forum and seems to be some good knowledge on here-am also active on the RS246 forum plus some FB ones also. Picked up an Audi approved used model (Jan 2018 B9 RS5 coupe) just before lockdown (I did pause for serious thought before getting back into some expensive metal and signing on the dotted lines but so far my job is holding up very well luckily) after looking for months. The original plan was a return to an RS6 or 7 (preferably a PE) as I had a non PE 6 before but had to let it go due to poor man maths on my part. Best car I ever owned. Potted history: 3 M cars, 1 Alpina, 3 Audi Rs' (including current), and 1 AMG (A45) that I am trying to forget it was that terrible and ownership experience. All of them have been sublime cars in their own right. Luckily I noticed a massively specc'd RS5 appear a couple of days before and when I got down there, there was a 2017 RS6 PE sat next to it. I was shocked at how dated the 6 looked in every way (they still look aggressive as hell and are brilliant). One test drive of the 5 and I was smitten. Tech, build quality, delivery etc etc etc. Dropped a deposit there and then which was wise as it was getting a lot of interest (the spec is that good). Turns out the previous owner had it two years, put £2k worth of PPF on it and also spent £83k buying it! It has literally every option except CCB and heated steering wheel. Also did around 5k miles a year so it ticks every box going. Audi did me a fair deal and managed a weeks drive before the UK locked down. My previous steer was a 2017 BMW M3 Competition Pack & those things rock and roll. The handling is unreal and the harder it goes the better it gets (by then you are doing silly speeds though). Truly a brilliant drivers car. After 6 months or so out of that (sold it at a great time and lost almost no money on the sale which was a first for me) maybe I'd got unused to fast cars.....so much so that when I opened the taps on a back road going home I had to reel it in quickly as quite frankly it scared the **** out of me! They absolutely fly these things and the handling is surprisingly good...not M car good but it's close and in all weathers as well. Build quality and tech makes the M (and even latest BMW's) look dated. Good points are pretty much everything. Mine is fully blacked out so it's proper stealth and that's where the bad points come in: noise, or lack of it. The engine and exhaust (and mine has sports exhaust) are just too smooth for their own good. The M sounded good, the RS6 in V8 was great as was my RS6 V10 (with catback Milltek) so its really disappointing to say the least. So-first mod will almost definitely be a non-res Milltek catback. Heard a race version demo'd fro me a few weeks ago and it sounded a thousand times better. After that get the steering wheel fully alcantara'd up and then maybe some floor mats. Tuning wise....unsure right now. Probably only go to Stage 1 if I do as its quick enough as it is for now. Approached one of the well known german tuners and they came back with a non warranty friendly £4500.00 and that's for up to 510 bhp only. Crazy price. Anyway that's it for now here's a few on the car itself.
