    I really like the new RS5, review video inside



    The bit about being a GT car first, performance second seems to be the flavor I lean towards these days. That honey comb leather looks fantastic as well.

    They are fun cars, for sure.
    Just wish Audi was more reliable.

    Agreed. They can be winter wheels.

    Isn't Audi near the top in terms of reliability these days?

    Audi rules. They have been direct injected for more than a decade so they are prone to any issues related to DI such as carbon build up.

    The only other weakpoint is the intake cam tappet for the DI fuel pump. Some last forever some don't. So I replace it every 3 or 4 years just to be on the safe side. That's about $160 for a garage to do.

    That whole tacking a tablet to the dash look needs to go though.

    Only Ford and BMW do that.

    GM and Dodge are currently sticking fuck you loud exhausts on ponycars/musclecars. Far louder than anything in the past 30 years.

    It ain't all bad bro.

    Great looking car... but it sounds horrible. I can't believe they let that farting machine leave the assembly line sounding like that.

    I think all of Audi’s RS cars fart when they shift. This one worse than others and I agree it’s a bit overkill.

    The actual engine sound minus the fart, I like for some reason. I like how unintrusive the sound is. But, then it farts

    Exactly.. at first, I thought "Hmm... not too bad. I like that" and then it shifted.

    Same transmission in RS7, A8 and S8.

    The ZF auto has a higher torque threshold than the DSG.

    ha, why?

    also, lol @ caddy.

    shocked to see Kia at #3, not surprised about Audi and BMW being in the top 5. I have and A4 wagon in my driveway that has almost 200k miles on it.....runs just fine, is 11yrs old, etc.
