Looks great in the wild! This thing better end up with three pedals...

I used to own a B7 RS4 which in my opinion looks a lot nicer than this. I hope this version doesn't have the massive and annoying carbon build up issue.

Also used to own a B7 RS4. Will with hold my opinion about this one. The estates get no love here in the US. Too bad for us.

I agree B7 RS4 looked amazing. It still looks so good at least equal to E90 M3 maybe even slightly better. Wide arches are needed on the RS4.

No, this new 4.2 is built from the ground up. Makes similar power figures with less parasitic losses. Lighter cams, better pistons, cylinder head from Gallardo, and different oil pump. Supposedly has nothing in common with Audi's 4.2 FSI in the previous RS4
