For once I agree with you on that. The A6 design isn't Audi's prettiest, the A4 and A8 look good but that middle size doesn't work at well, though I will hold off saying the RS6 won't look good until I see it in person as the transformation from A4 to RS4 was so marked that anything close to that would mean the RS6 will still look special.

One thing I will say is that there is no comparison in engine note, on that the RS6 wins hands down.

wow, I usually agree with you bro but I guess we cant always agree

To me, the M5 looked really special when I first seen it. But now, it doesnt stand out so much. I see a lot of M-sports and the M5 looks like one but with quads and side-vents.

The RS6 on the other hand looks more special and I know it'll be more exclusive because not everyone will want it because of the price. The current A6 looks perfect to me even stock, much better than a stock 5 series. Stock 5 series looks a little weird.

correct me if I am wrong, but a S6 owner told me they are not bringing them to the U.S. with the turbo v10 motor

I agree that an M/Sport 5series looks like an M5 minus the quad exhausts but it overall design looks better than that of the normal A6 which in my opinion at least isn't Audi's best effort. I love the new A4, A5, A8, TT and R8 but surely there is one design that I am allowed to not prefer over another brand's design.

Like I said the RS6 I will hold off on giving a final verdict until I see one in person.

Of course there can be one design you dont like for me it's the A2 I do agree though that the M5 looks great as does the M-sport. It does look weird from some angles and I sometimes dont like the front/rear lights and grille, but the bumpers, sideskirts and wheels are top notch.

I dunno where to come in in this little debate. But I kinda agree with both of you. Yeah, the M-Sport package really decreases that visual exclusivity that the M5 once had. Also, I really like the A6's design. I'm just not crazy about the fact that it looks so plain in A-guise when compared to the rest of the Audi range. The RS6 looks absolutely amazing though.

Thought the car could look more aggressive than that.. Wasn't it supposed to be V10 TT with 550HP?

Actually its got 580bhp But that's only the claimed figure. The real figure should be about 600bhp.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I dont believe this engine is coming to the U.S.. A S6 v10 owner told me this when I asked him if he was going to trade in for the RS6. He told me it is not coming to the U.S. So IDK, but if it is then it will be the hottest 4door around as far as performance untel BMW steps up their game with the M5 or if you have the Dinan bigbore kit then you can hang.
