Gorgeous Car.

I think I'd take a modded M3 though. Surely I'm not biased.

Congrats on your new wheels. I just sold my rs4 and would probably have kept it for a while longer if it had the new dual clutch. The RS5 is a beautiful car with an awesome interior. If you don't need 4 doors and have no real aspiration for engine mods its a winner. Enjoy!!

Thanks everyone! Just to be honest I still prefer the M3 and if I was not going to keep the M3 I was never going to get the RS5. One thing about the RS5 it is so unique that everywhere I go I get people stopping and checking the car but I always say the M is the better car

My older brother started pining for a sports tourer of his own after he took my M3 for a spin. He ended up buying an S5 and I went on a road trip with him to pick it up. Frankly, I was not very excited about the car before we made the trip. But going over it and driving it around before he finalized the deal I realized just how gorgeous it looks and sounds. It's still not the right car for me, but I completely understand why people buy the Audis now.

I don't know Mr Plutonium

If someone is considering buying an understeering piece of garbage like an RS anything, they probably should.

The lameness of a product that came out years after the E92 and has crappy feel and is slower in a straight line is seriously epic.

The C63 crowd at least has insane torque/hp going for it. The RS5 crowd has what? Pretty styling? Understeer?
