Almost coming up to a year with the RS5 and while I love it to bits...it's just still too smooth for my liking. I've had some really aggressive motors in my time and have loved them all (apart from an A45 AMG which was the worst mistake). It's a very complete car and ticks most of the boxes except the one that makes it a real event to drive. Have stuck a non res Milltek on to sort the sound out and now it sounds like it should. It's no V8 and never will be and it's sad that firms such as Alfa have got such a great sound out of their V6. Stuck MP 4S tyres on to replace the Conti's so that a lot better Alcantara wheel which feels lovely Also got a DMS ECU and gearbox tune now that it's out of warranty and it's a lot 'flightier' (if that's a word) and quicker (now running 530 bhp and 525 lb ft torque). I haven't really driven it much though-have a second car that I drive that's got a ton of character (Defender). Completely different motor but I prefer it to the RS. Odd I know but that's the truth. I dare say it does 0-60 in around 3 secs now and 1/4 mile in around 11.5. All these things should add up to making it a mega car but it's just missing that savageness (yes even with the tune) aggression and thrill that I got from my old M3 or RS6. So I'm starting to look around for likely contenders. C7 RS6 again? E63S? M5? older R8? Nice choices to have I know. Had a look on A/T and no other RS5 for sale comes even close to the spec. Just priced it all up and it has £18,290 worth of options and that's without the other bits like the Milltek. Probably one of the highest specc'd ones in the country-everyone goes on about 'fully loaded' etc when selling but the only thing mine doesn't have is carbon brakes and the carbon pack (has carbon mirrors though). Plus full PPF which came with the car. Hopefully with the low miles it should hold its value. Thoughts? Maybe I need to drive it more to make a final decision. Maybe I miss having a V8 in my life, we're all going EV sooner or later and I want to go out on a loud note!
