    Just popped into Bristol Audi and seen my first UK RS4. Very nice. Unusual specification with Alcantara bits which were definitely not an option when I ordered. Come on Audi. Alcantara wheel should be standard fitment!! Very nice looking car though. IMG_9457.jpg IMG_9456.jpg

    Looks great in red. Can't wait to see one at my local, and I'll then see about getting a spin in one!

    It does look good in red. Bit too flash for me. I prefer the Stealth Q car look

    I also think they look better with EU Plates which mine will be fitted with

    @RGBARGEE

    Full alcantara steering wheel does indeed look ace :icon thumright:

    So what is the standard wheel then .... all leather or part leather / alcantara like the RS3 ?

    ah yeah performated leather then yeah as standard.

    Looks like the demo car with the alcantara wheel also has alcantara gear stick, door inserts and centre console clad in alcantara too - plus the floor mats.

    I would bet that as a pack is close to a £grand !

    Yeah its just one of those things Audi try to tempt you with to extract even more money - not something you will miss in the slightest.

    Not long now - Hopefully yours will land at the Dealer soon and you can take a sneaky peak :icon thumright:

    From Coulsdon Audi in London. This car is used by the head of business (so the manager basically of the whole dealer. He or she is driving it around but it’s been spotted parked up.

    Couldn’t imagine a car now without privacy glass ... that RS4 without - especially with black paint - looks so wrong !

    Who the hell specced that car needs a good talking to.

    I think the planner is updated daily so hopefully could land at the Dealer any time now :icon thumright:

    It's in the Country!! and I've reserved a registration number and EU plates.. all looking good for 1 March ...
    Anyone read the RS4/RS6+ comparison tests today in Autocar. Another bit of biased journalism maybe ??

    Those arches :hubbahubba: that is why I love the RS4 so much. This pic shows them off perfectly.

    Question - would you call them box or blistered/rounded arches this time?

    It looks to be journalism promoting RWD V8 'proper' MB, rather than 'downsized' V6 Audi. On sale yesterday 7 Feb. If you buy a car just for the V8 noise and RWD I agree BUT... MB is full of bling, poor cabin and give it some bad weather !!! Good You Tube comparison of RS3 trouncing MB with launch control. Getting 500+PS on the road through 2 wheels is never going to be good.

    Box I'd say. The B8 was more like the C6 RS6 and rounded.

    Funny, as I'd say the B8 had the boxed arches, whereas the B7 had the flared rounded arches.

    Yeah fair one. Just because the new one is more 'angular' is why I thought that.

    Yeah all the launch cars seem to have Alcantara but definitely not an option when I ordered or still now apparently. Very odd!

    I love how it looks although can’t help thinking after a good raz around in the summer you’d be getting a sweaty steering wheel

    The car does look so much better in the flesh though right? The pics do not do justice in my opinion
