Thanks wa2fst. Always slightly regretted selling the RS4, had a magic V8 and great handling for an Audi :-)

Think I'm going to hold onto the 6 for a while, it's awesome for mile munching fast rural roads, especially on the continent, where you can open up the taps properly on the V10. We did 20+ hours (return trip) over a weekend to the south of France in September, so easy. I think the bucket seats in the RS4 would have hospitalized me.

I really must take some better photos, here is one post detailing few years ago by Cambridge Autogleam it's in very esteemed company....

Another of the 4 taken couple of years back.

The RS stance is just wicked! I forgot the 6 had a V10 i passed one on the way to a track day while in my truck i tried taunting the old man but he could care less lol. So i never got see a little run sure it would have been impressive!

Great looking blue also! I like the 6 headlights with the " eyebrows" post a pic of the front lit up like to c how the LED parking lights look. The 6 to me has always seemed to be its own car from the rest of the pack sharing very little with the other models.
