Epitome of the four P's

2003 Audi RS 6 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Panache, practicality (roomy back seat)
and phantastically phast -- what more
could one want? Better MPG, maybe, but
comparable cars are just as bad (e.g.
E55 AMG) -- and they don't have or
offer All Wheel Drive. I've never
driven this much in one year (24K mi),
which says a lot. Spent time in shop
after 10K mi but turns out that was due
to poor communication at Audi rather
than parts availability, which was
blamed at the time. Also have 2000
Audi S4 & need to sell one of them.
Love the S4 too; more nimble and, with
a chip, almost as fast. But even tho
selling the RS6 would bring $40+K more,
I have no such plans. RS6 pleases eyes,
ears, even nose!

Best Features

Speed, sound (standard exhaust), comfort, traction; can enter merging traffic like no other sedan I've driven, including Merdeces-Benz E55 AMG (which is a little faster but jerky at times, due to no AWD).

Worst Features

Ride could be smoother; suggest adjustable levels of stiffness like E55 AMG. Seats are good but Europe got Recaros, which probably are better. Hope next generation gets better MPG, maybe using something similar to new Chrysler 300/Dodge Magnum (runs on 4 cylinders when cruising)
