"I got the car in December to replace my much-loved 2010 S5, following three previous A6s, two of which were 4.2 liter V-8s. The RS5 is an order of magnitude better than the S5, from the sheer power to the way it handles; indeed, with the new electric steering I find myself looking for 90 degree turns because they're so much fun: who knew? One of the packages I selected had adaptive cruise control, which I wouldn't have picked on its own, but have learned to really appreciate on turnpike driving. It works better than advertised and saves constantly tapping the brakes when someone decides to slow down or pull in front of me w/o bothering to signal. Do yourself a favor and spring for the $1k sports exhaust. If you do, you'll never have to take a Prozac - just park in the driveway and rev the engine. Even better, the system blows the exhaust every time you downshift. I plan to keep this one and drive it until my reflexes die. Can't wait until spring."

"The best DD sports car for all weather conditions. Drives in snow like 80 mph, show me another sports car that can do that. Ali"

"The car has electrical problems that Audi cannot fix nor did they know that it existed in most RS5 vehicles. Lights flicker which is a result of a random uncontrollable power surge. The dashboard lights flicker, the dome light flickers, the outlets don't work. If you plug in any of your devices into the 12Volt outlet they short out and turn off. Audi does not know how to fix the problem even though they have replicated it in other vehicles. Every time you get in the car the radio is on at an obscene level. This also is a "feature" that you cannot adjust. Navigation glitches like it's meth addict..."
