Best pic of RS5 I have seen so far?

Look at the LEDs on the bumper!!! Now it all comes down to the price of this beautiful monster; if the price is close to the M3 then I might actually wait it out and get the RS5 instead of the M3, but if the price is a lot higher than the M3 then it is too much. What should I do? Get M3 or wait?

That's not a real pic btw mate. Its just an S5 with RS4 bumper and LEDS. The RS5 bumper will be completely different and wont have lower LEDs.

Why no lower LEDs? It looks freaking cool! Where did they get the lower LEDs idea from? Which car?

Because Audi now combine the LEDs inside the headlight unit. The lower LED idea started with the Audi S6

That car looks alittle too closer to a Chrysler 300 for comfort.

And you think this is that much better?

Don't think that I rate the looks of the A6 that highly but it's different to think of any large saloon which looks amazing. I know I'm stuggling to think of one.

RS5 is NICE - but also AWD. AWD = more weight and less sporty handling in the dry.

Not necessarily more weight, Quattro itself weights about 50~75kgs on it's own, probably closer to the 50kgs. DCT weighs 25kgs and yet gives better performance.

When awd is designed properly it can be a real benefit, GTR has proven that. If Audi can balance out the front and rear weights and reduce the overall weight as well then I think the RS5 will not only drive as well as the M3 but will give you more options with the throttle and how you want to attack a corner.

P.S.
By the way I don't believe the RS5 will be as good to drive as the M3 but it will out handle it and produces better track times. It will be up to each individual to decide whether they want to be entertained or be the quickest.

Footie don't let everyone know about the new AWD systems. Let them live in the old days.

Audi has already made one the most responsive, tossable, slideable, AWD cars ever in the R8.

Who knows how long the RS5 will take to come to the US...buy a 2008 at a great price and think about the RS5 in a year or so. That is what my thinking is and I have driven the S5 and it is fantastic but very different from the M3. But the RS5 will be a different animal.

The S5 looks best from the back...Audi needs to work on the front

I have a feeling the RS5 will breach the $80,000 mark easily...
