Wasn't there at least a 3-4 year gap between the Euro releases of the E9X M3 and RS5?

RS5 isn't a car that suits me at this time, but I do love the way it looks with the titanium pack. Engine has similar characteristics to the S65 and seems fantastic.

I wonder what the steering is like.. I've had some time in a B8 S4 and found the steering feel (lack thereof) horrendous. I couldn't get passed it. If the RS5 has similar steering believe that I would really struggle to enjoy it.

In a recent review they noted that the newest RS5 uses electric steering with better road feel and that the earlier version used a more traditional hydraulic steering.

Here is the review link:
